I love to partake in a little retail therapy almost as much as I love to cook. Being a foodie, I often find myself browsing through new-fangled kitchen gadgetry in housewares when, truth be known, my kitchen is equipped just fine. I might not have the very latest, but I was raised to be resourceful. I can pretty much make anything with the tools I already have.
Case in point: This past weekend, I made the Eggstra Special Sugar Cookies from the March/April issue. (It’s on newsstands right now, and the recipe is on page 72.) I made them in simple circles with sugar sprinkles.
To cut them out, I used a piece of baking equipment my mother used — a glass jelly jar.
For smaller rounds, a stainless-steel jigger did the trick. I use both items to cut out biscuits and bread rounds for finger sandwiches, too.
I know some of you out there are just as resourceful. If you’ve got a tool or gadget that functions great in your kitchen but really wasn’t meant for cooking at all, I’d love to hear from you.
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

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.
