We visited Savannah last summer and the line was too long for us to wait to get into your restaurant. God love you dear. I did buy an apron to remember my visit to your beautiful city. I want to visit again soon. Remember that which does break us only makes us stronger!!

Dear Paula, We are sorry for what has happened to you and we support you completely!!! We hope you are out there in full force VERY SOON. You are going to come out of this in better shape than you were before. You don't need the Food Network especially as they do not support Christian principles. You apologized and were honest about what happened and that was not acceptable to them. You asked for forgiveness and in my book that is what God asks us to do and then it is the responsibility of the rest of us to accept your apology and provide forgiveness. Keep up the great work.

My family loved your Butter Bean soup; I used 2 stalks of celery instead of 1 stalk, added 2 chopped hard boiled eggs & used half & half instead of milk. Soup was very creamy & thick. (we northern folks like to use hard boiled eyes in our soup). When I make a new dish for dinner my husband remarks "it must be Paula Deen night". Love you and your family!
