Delicious Recipes!

Paula did it again! Fabulous recipes that can be trimmed down for those of us who are counting fat, calories, and so on. Or, just enjoy them as Paula intended them to be. Either way, you will find no disappointments!

It's Paula Deen, so YES, it has fantastic recipes and her wonderful down-home, charming style of sharing her food passion! I was disappointed that there are no pictures though. There are illustrations for techniques, such as properly placing a cooking therometer in a pot. Why are pictures a big deal in recipe books? They bring your imagination to life in a very vivid way that makes you anxious to run to your kitchen and get started right away! And after all, isn't actually cooking the goal of a recipe book? Not convinced yet? Take a look at Rose Levy Birnbaum's Pie and Pastry Bible or her Cake Bible. I dare you to do that and not race to your kitchen to get started baking! Other than the omission of photographs, this book is great, full of wonderful recipes and Paula-ness, and most definitely a keeper for anyone who takes delight in preparing great food.

    Not recommended

    Looked at this in the store. The majority of Paula Deen's recipes are heavily laden with high fat and carbohydrate content.
