I tried the Chocolate Pie recipe (melted chocolate chips, eggs, melted butter, self-rising flour, pecans, vanilla)TWICE but it turned out like a brownie, over baked well before the 50-60 minutes recommended. I tried it in the order demonstrated on TV and the order recommended in the on-line recipe (they were different). Neither produced satisfactory results. It was an expensive mistake given the high cost of pecans. It was too disappointing to share at Thanksgiving.

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.
