Hi Paula -- just wanted to say how much I appreciate all your recipes. I'm a southern cook and wouldn't want to change at this late date. I also just bought a few of your Paula Deen signature pieces from Amazon. I was amazed that each piece was so unique and of such high quality. A special shout out to the pig cutting board. It was love at first sight for the both of us. Please keep on keepin' on. I have crossed every store off my list that won't carry your products. I have to vote with my dollars and hope that others will think about this too. love you lots!!! Laurie S.

Paula, I just wanted to tell you that I support you 110%! You are a true blessing to everyone who meets you and what has happened to you within the last week is WRONG! I think you will find that you have a lot of support out here. We love you! Don't let this get you down. God never said it would be easy. He's with you Paula. He knows your heart better than anyone and He loves you more than anyone else could. My mama always said that if my "friends" didn't stand with me then they weren't the kind of friends I would want. This applies to you too Paula. Just remember we love you and support you! Everything will be okay! I love you!

Hey Mrs. Paula, my family is from the South also we originated from Emmons SC, Asheville NC, Spartanburge so we know gooood cooking. Lady You are the icing on any cake. I love U Ms. PAULA. I know Dr,Oz is trying to convert U but stay true to yourself. God will take care of the rest., whatever we do it should be taken in moderation. Thast's what the good book says. So a little guilty pleasure has not put on pounds. It's when we over do the good things you show us how to cook, and over eat those wonder delightful dishes. kEEP USING YOUR GIFT TO BRING GOD GLORY AND PEOPLE PLEASURE. YOUR SISTER IN MY HEAD CARLA

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
