Hi Paula, Love your show and your sons show as well. I have followed you a long time and enjoyed your book about being a single mom and raising up two wonderful sons. I raised two daughters and gave them great work ethics as you did and it paid off. Take Care Paula Cathy Manion-Loysch

Bobby, I admire your efforts to lighten up you mom's dishes, but as diabetic as I am (33 years insulin dependent diabetic) I prefer mom's version more. Eat it all up, butter and all, just do it in moderation! Do your thing Paula, you will ALWAYS be the reigning queen!
