Growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen learned early in life that it takes a woman of substance to make it in this world. As a young girl, she spent countless hours in her Grandmother Paul's kitchen, learning and memorizing the same recipes that still line her dinner table today. They are the kind of recipes that only grandmothers can teach- a pinch of this, a dash of that, and a whole lot of love.
With multiple television shows, countless cookbooks, a bi-monthly magazine, an ever-expanding product line and several Southern-style restaurants, her kitchen just keeps getting hotter, and hotter. Despite her success, however, Paula knows the meaning of good friends, good family, and of course- good food.
