Hi Paula...You are truly a SUCCESS story. Not only did you bring the charm of the South to national recognition, you also demonstrated to the world that a non-chef can just cook the britches off the "culinary taught" chefs. Everything you make is soooo good! I know that it's difficult,as a diabetic, to turn down a lot of delicious foods, but let me tell you girl... you're smoking hot these days! Your weight never was an issue with me liking you or your programs... but now you look so trim & fit ...that it inspires one to regroup,look @ what they're eating & take your lead. Nothing can change my love for Southern food but "lighter" versions are an alternative. As I've heard you say many times... you don't eat these things every day but an occasional piece of fried chicken, mashed potatoes,decadent mac & cheese or a piece of pie is a treat to be enjoyed! I love you & your boys...Keep making us Girls Raised in the South proud!

Now that you have found out you are diabetic and with all the diabetic people in the USA, have you tried to make your Lady & Sons lemonade in a sugar free/substitute varriety at your restaurant? I still see so much refined sugar/simple syrup being used for drinks and deserts. There has to be another product that can do the same thing and that should make most products on the market today, sugar free or at least give us diabetics an option to have the same great tasting things as non-diabetics.
