Someone gave me all of her dessert cookbooks a couple of years ago. I never found anything in them I would have cooked or eaten, so I gave the books away.

I think she's a shill for Crisco.

She once made a dish out of lollipops dipped in rich choclate and candy. Her guest, a good ol' boy chef, nervously picked it up and remarked: "Aahh don think this is right!"

PUHLEASE!! Paula Deen's recipes are nothing more than recipes she's been given by the Food Network food stylists. People should stop idolizing this fool woman. She is not a chef. Hell, she's not even that good a cook. True southern cooks look at the crap Paula Deen makes on her shows and laugh. She's nothing more than a fat hick version of Sandra Lee.

And R1, you are also full of shit. Bobby Deen is not gay.

Made her peanut butter cookies. Simple and easy recipe but nothing special. Not even mediocre.

Made one of her son's meatloaf with a mustard and brown sugar glaze. Simple and easy. Tasted OK.

Second the vote for the banana pudding. It really is delicious.

Also the brandied steakside mushrooms are a staple at Christmas dinner. Still have some in the refrigerator, in fact.

I made her squash casserole for a "Southern" potluck BBQ when I lived in L.A. People loved it.

I cut the butter down to maybe 2T. and used just used salt, pepper, and cooked a little minced garlic into the onion and butter instead of the "House seasoning." I also think I cooked the squash a bit less so it wasn't a complete mush. Her recipe is below.

Squash Casserole Ingredients

* 6 cups large diced yellow squash and zucchini * Vegetable oil * 1 large onion, chopped * 4 tablespoons butter * 1/2 cup sour cream * 1 teaspoon House seasoning, recipe follows * 1 cup grated cheddar cheese * 1 cup crushed butter crackers (recommended: Ritz)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Saute the squash in a little vegetable oil over medium-low heat until it has completely broken down, about 15 to 20 minutes. Line a colander with a clean tea towel. Place the cooked squash in the lined colander. Squeeze excess moisture from the squash. Set aside.

In a medium size skillet, saute the onion in butter for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and mix all ingredients together except cracker crumbs. Pour mixture into a buttered casserole dish and top with cracker crumbs. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. House Seasoning:

* 1 cup salt * 1/4 cup black pepper * 1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups

I never make any of her recipes, but for Christmas Eve brunch, my niece made some kind of Paula Deen "French Toast Casserole." It looked just OK, but I have to admit that it tasted fantastic. Completely unhealthy, but it was great.

I've made her pumpkin pie recipe a few times - it's basically a cross between a traditional pumpkin pie and a cheesecake. Totally unhealthy but tasty.

I've also made a few candy recipes from Paula. Also, pretty good.

I dunno... I kinda think Bobby might be a gay. I don't say that about a whole lotta guys, but I think he's a gay. And that actress he dates - Katy Whatever - total beard. They look about as real together as Jake and Whatsherface. Or, actually, Jake and any Whatsherface.

I've tried her fried chicken recipe (with the hot sauce). It's divine. Also, her cheesy biscuits are pretty good, too.

I remember watching a live show she did, where she was taking questions, and someone commented on how unhealthy some of the foods were (in as nice a way as they could). She kind of chuckled a bit, and said, "Honey, I'm your cook, not your doctor!"

I recently went to Savannah to visit a nephew in school and had to go to the famous "Lady and Sons" restaurant. We had to go early to sign up for lunch and 3 hours later had a most boring, bland buffet lunch. We all agreed that it wasn't something to do more than once, kind of like visiting Graceland. I did like the johnny cakes and tried the recipe at home. Just ok, not anything I would go out of my way for.

I make a Coke ham every year for new Year's Eve. You have to boil the fucker in the soda for two and an half hours, poke in some cloves, and then glaze it with blackstrap molasses, dry mustard and raw cane sugar. Bake it at 500 degrees for ten minutes. It is delicious. Got the recipe from one of Nigella Lawson's cookbooks.

I made Paula's spoonbread and the banana pudding, bot of which were awesome. However, she once showed a recipe for toffee brownies which I have now tried making twice. Essentially, the "recipe" calls for two boxes of Duncan Hines Supreme brownie mix and 6 or so Skor Bars (which I love). You mix up the two boxes of brownies together, following the directions on the box. Then pour half of it in your pan and top that with the whole Skor bars. Then pour the rest of the brownie mix on and top with crushed walnuts and bake according to direction, adding a few extra minutes.

Once mine turned out just gushy and weird, and the second time, by the time the bottom layer was completely done, the top was burnt.

by Anonymousreply 4101/03/2011

Brownies are a pain in the ass to make and have them turn out okay.

I am seriously considering buying that brownie pan they show on tv. The one that separates the slices first? The one that has the removable sides AND bottom.

Does anybody know if it actually works?

I'm not much of a cook but I was forced to contribute to a potluck. I made Paula's bread pudding and I was the star of the dinner! I've done it a couple more times to similar accolades. It's very simple and delicious. Probably 300 calories just to look at it.

I've tried several of her dishes. Her Banana Pudding recipe is to die for and I've also prepared her cornbread stuffing.

I love her recipes (in moderation), but I'm use to southern cooking. If you're not, then it may be a bit too much for your tastes; and yes, she seems to LOVE butter. I usually use half of what she uses in her recipe.

The Jersey Mike's in the RTP area of NC are horrible. They are definitely not representative of the good sub shops in our area. I won't claim ours are as good as the sub shops you find up north, but they're not all as bad as what you experienced.

What's interesting is viewing some of her older Food Network episodes. It's very funny. It's almost as if (and I'm sure it was) her producers were trying to turn her into a proper, southern lady. No "y'alls". A very toned down accent. She spoke slowly and hardly ever smiled. Very serious.

Just hysterical.

That's interesting, r61 since I have read, here on these threads, that she is really just a low-key person that does not have that much of a Southern accent and that she sort of turns up the "volume" and adds a lot more "Y'all's" to make it seem even more Southern and over-the-top while on the shows.

She ha's just gone with a persona that people think is cute and endearing.
