What I remember from that time was when they were filming the very first episode, Thanksgiving and mom brought home an entire Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake that was left over from filming (the food stylists were so nice, they made me and my sister some extra goodies!). It wasn't anything anyone in our house ever had before and is now something I bring to my Aunts house every Thanksgiving. Paula makes them in lots of different flavors but the pumpkin is my favorite.
If it wasn't for Paula Deen, don't think I would have learned how to cook so well (for my age, anyway) because when I have "cooking-block" aka what should I make today, I still go back to her cookbooks and look for inspiration.
So, since Thanksgiving is just around the corner I am giving away one of our The Lady & Sons autographed cookbooks signed by Paula!
The book on the left (with the Food Network sign) is after her show got signed and the book on the right is before it got signed! How cool!
Just let me know your favorite Thanksgiving recipe that either you make or someone brings to the feast in the comments to this post and I will pick someone at random!!
Contest closes Tuesday November 3rd at 9 PM EST!!!!
With love and cupcakes,
