Paula Deen will always be my "go-to gal" when I crave the traditional recipes from my childhood in the 1960's. I also enjoy the recipes she and her son bring to all of us. Keep 'em coming. Love you Darlin' and thanks so much!

I would love to know where Paula got her pepper grinder. I seen how easy it is to use I have looked high and low for one and can not find one any where. Please Please let me know where I can get one at.

I tuned into Paula's show on Food Network by accident while being bedridden after a foot operation and enjoyed it immensely, so much so that I watched it every day since then. Please get Food Network to bring the show to South Africa, all my friends and family enjoys her shows and we would all love to attend a live show. Even my husband became a fan despite not being into cooking, he just enjoy eating it!!
