Paula, don't be discouraged by your critics. They don't have Type 2 diabetes. The diabetes community is pretty much on your side. We understand what you have been - and are - going through. Here are links to two blogs on the Diabetes Self-Management magazine site: http://tinyurl.com/6lnmuwe and http://tinyurl.com/87em7ec Please reach out to the diabetes community for support, either in person or on-line. Best to you, Jan

Hi, Paula, I was very sorry to hear about your diabetes diagnosis. Please turn a deaf ear to your critics. Your real fans "have your back", are cooking your recipes in moderation (as you have always said), and are cheering you on! Sincerely, Kathy Clarey

I love your recipes and have some of your books. I hope other chefs and the media will leave you alone. My husband is a diabetic and it is ok that you told you are a diabetic. They should leave you alone. I have watched some others who prepare recipes for TV and they aren't always health food. Hang in there and don't let the "turkeys" get you down.

Paula, Love ALL of your recipes. I enjoy trying them and serving them to my family. I am a little (a lot) full figured, but it is not because of your recipes and cooking. I enjoy food and know to do some items in moderations. My family loves my homemade beef noodles over mashed potatoes. We all know it is a lot of starch and fat. It is not something I cook every day, or even monthly. It is something I fix for a special occasion, like a birthday. Please do not let what some of the media is saying about you and your cooking make you feel bad. We as consumers have a responsibility for what eat and bake. (Not you) As far as having an illness, I sure hope you can understand it and able to keep it under control. I don't feel you have to explain anything. That is your personal life. I have enjoyed watching your shows and have a couple of your cookbooks. Just like I have enjoyed watching Pioneer Women and have one of her cookbooks, or Semi Homemade. She even fixes a cocktail with all her meals, that doesn't mean she would cause me to become an alcoholic. The media is out of control. Hang in there and keep up the fun times and great recipes in your kitchen. Jill from Basehor Kansas

Looking forward to your sugar free recipes. Remember that anything filled with fruit is not so low in sugar. We all know what happens when you cook fruit.

Can't wait to try these recipes. I love Paula's recipe's and all her shows but most of all Paula. But my body can't handle all the calories I am obese and need to take care of me and lose some weight and be healthier. Thank you and I will definitely give these a try. Thank you soooo much for these. The Best of Luck with these Loving Dishes for us overweight fans of yours.

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.
