I have been watching Paula Deen since she first appeared on
the Food Network back in 2002 I think it was. Being a
southern girl at heart, I instantly fell in love with her "down home"
charm. No, I did not make all of her recipes because most are
quite fattening, but I did make some which were quite tasty.
I watched her because she made me feel happy and when
she moved into her new house I fell in love with her kitchen!
I love the dark beams on the ceiling, the extensive use of antique
brick and the gleaming copper pots. My kitchen in my cottage is
no where near as large as Paulas, but I have the beams, vintage brick
and lots of copper pots too.
While I don't know Paula personally, she had never impressed me as
one to be cruel. She always appeared so warm and welcoming to
everyone and humble too. The Food Network has cancelled her
show and it's hard to know what the future will hold for Paula.
I for one will miss her and if she has said she is sorry and has
learned from her mistake, then I have forgiven her.
looking forward to spending more time with you all. I have so many
things to share with you and am so anxious to learn what you all
have been up to lately. Expect me to be visiting you all again
and filling you in on Bentley's antics too. I hope that when you do
come to visit me, that I make you feel as warm and welcome as
Paula once did for me.
Once Again, Happily Joining ~
