Around the Family Table


Many of my favorite memories over the years have been made sittin’ around the family table with my loved ones. It’s always been a great way to catch up on what’s goin’ on in everyone’s lives. Plus, it gives me a good reason to cook up a big meal! I’m sharin’ some recipes that my family loves, and I hope that yours will too. As always, I’m sendin’ y’all lots of love and best dishes!

Paula Deen - As a young girl growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen never dreamed she would become an American icon. As a young mother, Paula was living the American dream — married to her high school sweetheart and raising two adorable boys — when tragedy struck. Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deen's professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking.
