I love Paula recipes I watch your show all the time....

By Jenise blue on February 17, 2013


In my opinion, there are no failures in Paula's recipes. I've cooked complete Thanksgiving Dinners including her desserts: Gooey Cake, pounds cakes, pies, and meats just from watching her shows. She makes everything so easy to follow. If I have to go out and miss a show, then I pull it up on food network and make a copy. One day I hope to be able to go to Savannah and meet this wonderful Lady that shares and does so much. Her interview with Ophrah showed just how down to earth her she really is. To know she is a diabetic type II as I am and is adjusting for her health accordingly is wonderful. Some of her recipes I adjust by using Splenda, applesauce, etc. May God continue bless the Deen Family and her staff.
