Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: Simple and delicious brunch recipe. We served it with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Perfect for Mother’s Day!
Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
