Give Teacher More than an Apple


If you or your kids are hoping to impress teacher this year, consider stepping it up! Don’t give him or her a boring old apple this year—baked goods say “you’re great!” better than produce ever could. Of course, keeping a traditional apple spin on them is a great idea too. If you’re in need of some apple treat ideas, look no further. Apple cakes, apple pies, and apple cupcakes—they’re all here!

Of course if you really want to show teacher how much you care, consider donating commonly used classroom items, like tissues, paper towels, cleaning supplies, glue, markers, crayons, and anything else you can think of that may help during a busy school day.

Happy back-to-school time, y’all!

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.
