Paula Deen

I love Paula! My daughter and I went to see her in Dallas in 2007. She is not only a good cook but a standup comedian! Don't know if she still tours but if you get a chance to see her, by all means do!
What I am leading up to is her fried chicken recipe. You must try it.

here for Bert's Southern Fried Chicken recipe, you will not be dissapointed! The secret of this recipe is step #1. Liberally sprinkle each piece of chicken with salt and pepper several hours before cooking. (I do this in the morning and cook it that evening for dinner) In another recipe Paula has for chicken, she adds hot sauce to the egg mixture (I add this to this recipe). Cooked fried chicken last weekend for solar and bm,,,,got pretty good reviews/ha.
One more Paula fact,,Have you read her memoir? It Ain't All About the Cookin.

Very good read! Her life story makes you really appreciate her.

Nanny, I love Paula too! My daughter, Emma, and I catch her show as often as we can on Food Network. Last year I met some good friends in Savannah and ate at her restaurant there...YUMMY!
I have not read her memoir...will put it on the list!
