I grew up in South Carolina and moved NY at age 14. The southern bell in me still wishes to return some day but, mean while, you are my favorite taste of the south. Thanks for being all that you are. (I joke with my friends that your my long lost grandma)

I'm a big fan of your show Mrs. deen. I would love to see you in person so I could learn more recipes. I love to cook but I hate to do dishes. My husband hates chicken but he will eat chicken wings and has to be Bar-BQue all the time. Any chicken that I cook it has to be Bar-BQue. What else can I do for him.

I have made the sweet Chicken Bacon wrapped. Delicious. I decided one day to substitute shrimp instead of the chicken. Just as Delicious.

Paula, from your hands to my mouth I love many of your recipes. Even my husband Tom is learning to cook using your recipes. My lead at work brought muffins that have baby food carrots in the recipe I didn't get a chance to sample before they were all gone. Everyone that did sample loved them so now I would like to know the name too. My neighbors even had sent me to Lady And Sons to Pick up an Apron for them few years back. Some of your recipes we do have to slim them down (calorie) but still taste great and look it too. We live on a small lake and love to use outdoor cooking and while eating viewing water birds and wildlife. You have many fans in Wisconsin. You all come up some Summer you'll see Amish Country, Welsh, Irish, German, and Swiss areas we have too offer you. Oh, yes we do have dairy cows we just don't advertise as California does. Our cheese factory is 6 miles from us Carr Valley Cheesemen won many ribbons on their recipes too. Thanks for your winning ways Paula, wishing you all the best. From your Humble Fan, Barbie Dosemagen
