I haven't tried

I haven't tried the recipe, I am just excited cus a am a subscriber to Paula Deen's Network, I have missed Paula's show on the Food Network, so having this opportunity to see her again in the kitchen thru her network makes me happy and I needed to comment on this. I strongly believe actions against Paula were taken to an extreme high level of unfairness, but anyway in regards to this video in particular, I love it, well explained, recipe seems easy, and cant wait to try it. Wish Paula the best of luck and hope all her supporters will come through. Love you Paula and God Bless!
