For homestyle, I-want-to-say-I-love-you cooking, no one does it better than Paula Deen. This book does not disappoint with recipes planted throughout the chapters that are a promise away from tasty! This book is Paula’s memoirs of her often tragic but finally victorious life.
However, in recommending this book I would have to place a big WARNING!and point to Paula’s own declaration at the beginning. Her language is past ‘colorful’. She might say she is being true to who she really is but the language takes away from my enjoyment of the book to the point that I stopped reading the chapters and just read the remaining recipes. I was very disappointed in the manuscript while still appreciating Paula’s always superb recipes.
