Blast From the Past: Paula’s Best Dishes: Restaurant Review (2009)

By Paula Deen

Even though I wish y’all could all make it to one of my restaurants, I know it’s not possible. It can be so hard to carve out a little time for a getaway. But just because you can’t make it to The Lady & Sons in Savannah doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the delicious food. That’s when I remembered this episode of Paula’s Best Dishes from 2009 when the General Manager at the time, Dustin, dropped by the show, so we could make some of the delicious foods that come out of that kitchen. We made all sorts of good stuff, like chilled asparagus-and-corn salad, peach-barbecue tilapia, key lime ice cream pie, and the three-meat pasta that we’re makin’ in the clip below.

I hope y’all enjoy watchin’ this blast from the past. There is just nothin’ like takin’ a stroll down memory lane—especially when it ends up being so delicious! With a mix of flavors from smoked sausage, ham, and chicken, and the gooey, bubbly cheeses, you’ll want to go back for seconds and thirds.

Love & 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.
