Paula Deen LIVE Re-Cap

One of my first memories of learning how to cook was watching Paula Deen on television. She was so warm and inviting. It was like I was sitting in her kitchen and we were whipping up an amazing meal together.

If you’ve ever wanted to be invited into Paula Deen’s kitchen, but know that is only wishful thinking, the next best thing is Paula Deen Live. Seriously, ya’ll. It was amazing.
Some tickets even include taste testing during the event!! Granted it’s out of the same dish. No double dipping. But we’re all family in Paula Deen’s house, right?

She gave us a little taste of what we could experience every day on her new network. One Dish Wonders, 5 and Dime {5 ingredients make a meal in 10 minutes}, cooking tips and tricks, and super fun games. You have got to watch “What Did Paul Deen Just Put in My Mouth?!”.

Hilarious!!

I now know what to call different cooking spoons in the kitchen, and I will forevermore use a bundt pan when cutting corn off the cob.
