A few months back we were on a family trip and setting off on a long walk back to the hotel. The kids were kind of quiet after a day of fun and so I thought I’d check my email on my phone as we walked together. An email from my editor with the subject line “Paula Deen LOVES Southern Plate” popped up and my eyes just about popped out of my head! “Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness” was all I could manage to say as I clicked to open it.
My husband was at my side in an instant, “What? What’s wrong?” to which I replied with more “Oh my goodness!” as my voice grew even louder. Finally, I looked up with a face white as a sheet. “Paula Deen read my book.”
To which he started in with his string of “Oh my goodness”. We all stopped on a street corner as I read the quote to them, and my entire family began jumping up and down excited, with me in tears at what an amazing honor this was.
I’m thrilled to be able to share the quote from Miss Paula with you today!
“The recipes in Southern Plate made my mouth
I have never heard of any other school serving
peanut butter balls, except for mine- and that was
45 years ago! This wonderful cookbook made me
feel like I was reading something of my own.”
— Paula Deen
