I’ve been a lot of things in my life.
Of all the things I’ve been throughout the course of my life, I may be best known as a cook, but if you were to ask me what I’d like to be known most for, it’d be a mother, grandmother, and wife.
Why? I think, if I look deep into my heart of hearts, those roles I cherish the most – they’re all about carin’ for the ones you love. Being a loving mother, a grandmother that will spoil the mess out of her grandbabies, and a devoted husband, well, it may be a little selfish of me, but I get the biggest kick out of that wholesome feeling that sweeps over my body every time I fix them a homemade meal straight from my kitchen.
Over the past year, as I’m sticking to a moderated diet and regular exercise, I’ve been searching all over for the best foods and ingredients to use in my kitchen that will help enrich the souls of my family and loved ones. That search has lead me to an exciting announcement. I’ve traveled all over the U.S. to find the best purveyors, sweetest and dearest farms and food companies, many of which are family-owned like The Lady & Sons, to come together in a way that surprised even myself. Together, we’ve founded Paula Deen Foods, a food company dedicated to providing not only my family, but yours too, with the freshest ingredients and products that bring families and friends together to make the everyday meal a special occasion.
Over the next couple of months, y’all will be hearin’ a whole bunch about the entire line of goodies coming to a grocery store near you, but I’m just tickled to announce the all-natural chips that are headed to Walgreens! They’re just so darn good, it’s hard to eat just one. But you know what? I feel good about letting my grandbaby, Jack, have his heapin’ handful, because I know exactly what goes inside of them, because they’re all-natural, and made from the freshest ingredients with fresh jalapenos diced and fresh corn that is shucked rolled right into the chips. I mean, y’all haven’t lived until you’ve tried dipping them in this Lightening Fast White Bean Dip, or Spinach Artichoke Dip. Personally, I love to crunch them up for an extra wow-factor in some of my dinner salads.
Unlike other chips that you’ll find in the grocery store that loaded with a lot of ingredients you can’t pronounce, my all-natural tortilla chips are made with fresh vegetables – one kind made with fresh jalapenos and the other with fresh corn; they’re both fantastic.
I’ll also be sharing with y’all my new grilling finishing butters that lets us all cook with butter as a “finishing” ingredient, using my favorite taste of butter in moderation. My grilling butter is amazing on steak, fish, shrimp or shellfish, its great on potatoes or pasta – it goes with everything. I also am makin’ other great varieties, of butter including Citrus Zest Butter, Lemon Dill Butter, European-Style Butter, and Garden Herb Butter, all available in Walmart stores across the country.
Finally, you’ll be able to find my favorite sugar-free and premium chocolates in the candy section of your favorite stores. These wonderful treats are made with my own private blend of chocolate, European-inspired and rooted in the art of Swiss chocolate making. The sugar-free chocolates are the best I’ve tasted, and are headed to Walgreen, too!
Not only are you able to share these great products with your family and friends but each time you buy one of my new food products here, you’ll giving back to those in need, because a portion of all of the proceeds go to The Bag Lady Foundation, a non-profit organization which was created is to provide hope, inspiration and support to women and families in their time of need. We’re looking forward to helping fight hunger in our own backyards across America.
