Home Cookin'

While I was shopping at Walmart the other day, browsing in the kitchen section, escorted by a pimply lad in a smart blue smock; I came upon the fine array of kitchen ware, handcrafted by none other than your friend and mine…Paula Deen. Can you believe she actually makes kitchenware all by herself in a blacksmith shop with a red hot hammer? Me either, but her name is right on it and if you can’t trust Paula, well, you might as well throw in the Paula Deen kitchen towel. (Which she weaves in a cute little sweatshop out back by the horse corral)


After agonizing over the many wonderful pans, I took the advice from the wise-beyond-his-years pimply lad in the smart blue smock, and settled on a serviceable orange pot. When I got home and lifted the lid, I found a treasure, a handwritten recipe written by the soft, dimpled hand of Paula Deen herself!!! I am sure it is extremely valuable, but I am not going to auction it on Ebay No, dear readers. I am going to share it with you all.



I made this delightful concoction for the family tonight for dinner and we are smacking our soft lips and sighing in utter contentment. Now get cooking and you will be doing the same!



Mmmmm, good!

HA! I had to read that recipe 5 times before I really got it. The drink actually looked good but I was thinking "why in the world did she put butter on the glass?!" hahahahahah! Larainey, you amaze me..

My computer wasn't loading the recipe, so I continued to refresh. Each time with more eager anticipation at this delicious recipe from Grandma Paula, I could barely keep in my excitement.

I bet Joey can pound these down with no side effects.

Hi Laraine! That is pretty funny. I'm pretty sure you could fool someone with that "drink" (maybe without the slab of butter. But that probably wouldn't be very nice. Butter...mmm.
