Step right up, come and get it! Remember strolling along your county fair on a warm summer night pulling at your cotton candy, taking a huge bite out of your chili dog, or sharing your gooey and sweet funnel cake? The worst part of that whole scenario was that you had to leave all of those wonderful flavors at the fair until the next time that it rolled around.

Not any longer! Paula and the test kitchen have a whole slew of county fair recipes that will have you dreaming of ferris wheels and apple bobbing with every bite.

Love these recipes! I enjoy our county and State Fair so much that I started entering the Culinary Arts contests a few years ago. My first entry was a Honey Oatmeal Cookie (made with at least 51% honey)and I won 2nd place! My family and I were so surprised and had a great time at the fair. Thanks so much for all the great recipes. I gave my son your "My First Cookbook" for Christmas a couple of years ago when he was nine. He's all "boy" but loves to help out with mealtime.

Paula, To heck with the diet! Your recipies are alway the best. I told you a long time ago when you were here in Albuquerque, that your fried chicken is better than my Grandma's. It is still true. Bless you! Chris

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?

Congrats Bobby. Loved the family picture miss you Paula on TV will be watching online. Jack is getting big. Looks like his mom but Matt aka moose has your face. Your eyes cheeks hair even falls to his face like yours except to the left. Good luck on your next venture. You give us other 60+ yr women strength to move on. Keep up the good work.
