I cannot tell a lie…
To my knowledge, Paula Deen does NOT read my blog but it’s possible, right?
When I posted "Paula Deen reads my blog…?!" the other day, it never occurred to me it might be read as anything other than tongue in cheek! At first, I thought commentors were just going along with my silliness, but when a few people IRL mentioned it to me, hehe, I knew I had to come clean.
Which makes it even funnier to me :).
For the record, it IS TRUE I received an email from her with the recipe I attached; and it IS true it was perfect timing given that was the day of Snackalicious/Recipe Round Up…but other than that, it was purely coincidental timing.
Personal note to Paula Deen: If you ARE lurking out there, would you PLEASE let me know? I love you trulymadlydeeply…at least your Southern sass and your way around the kitchen, anyway. 😉

It wasn’t true? Oh my gosh. Can we make a cherry pie now? Huh? Can we? Can we?
Oh, I knew you were a big fat hairy liar messin’ with us. 🙂
Paula may not, but her webmaster does.
Well, if you can’t have Paula Deen herself, Phil the webmaster will have to do. 😉
Aww you fessed up. I wouldn’t have. Ok ok I would have. But do you know I’m such a Paula Deen fan that I’m going to go touch Phil’s name just because he must talk to her and that’s good enough for me if that’s the closest I can get to her. You think I’m joking. Watch out Phil!
AWESOME! Phil, tell Paula Deen she is much loved out here in blogland and I TREASURE the picture of the two of us. Robin, you realize this makes you royalty, right?
Wow, quite the response to a lowly web gnome. I will make sure to let Paula know about your site. Let me just say that she is every bit as nice and down home in real life as she appears to be on television. Oh, and Joy, I am indeed touched.
Sandy, I’d love to make one for ya!
SHB, I about snorted when I read your comment; my husband used to say “big, fat, hairy deal” all the time! I had forgotten about that!
Phil, ummm, is this really you…PHIL???
Michelle, well, he made MY day!
Joy, I don’t know about Phil, but I believe you ;).
CPA Mom, I’m feelin’ pretty good, if you must know :).
PHIL!!! YOU’RE BACK?? You’re getting to be a regular, huh? I KNEW that about Paula, I just felt it in my bones. It’s that Southern moxie (it takes one to know one) (but I’m no “Paula Deen”) (but I AM a “Paula Deen Wannabe”).
You know what? I lived under a freakin rock for like 14 yrs (middle east) and had NEVER heard of Paula Deen. Just like I hadn’t heard of the internet until like 1999 (I swear). And couldn’t figure out what the heck an mp3 player or an ipod was until last year. I’m not even kidding.
So, yeh. I hadn’t heard of Paula Deen. That is, until one day, I had flown over to our house in England – and I was sittin on my new leather sofa – and Oprah came on. And Paula Deen was on there cooking. And I thought, OMG I’M soooooooooooooo HOMESICK! From hearing her accent. And that laugh!
She made ME laugh SO hard. Food was flying coz something went wrong. Then she’s howl laughter. And there I was howling on my new sofa. Neighbours walking past my front window thinking here is this crazzzy Texan in our little village, making a ruckus!
If she ever does read your blog? She needs to get herself over to England and visit this Southern gal. Coz, I’m a Southern gal who loves to cook. And I’ve got THE most amazing cooker/oven in the world. Food isn’t meant to taste this good! I mean, we could just be buds and cook and throw food around (coz I’m kinda fumble fingers myself sometimes with those kitchen gadgets) and drink some daquiris – or better yet – margaritas. But I warn anyone, I’m a lightweight drinker who laughs loudly after one or two. (is someone gonna tell me she’s a tee totaler now? omg, that would so be my luck).
Anyway. I got a new kitchen. And I’m dying to share it with some chick friends. Southern chick friends.
Sigh. I can’t wait for my BFF to visit. Or my mom, or sister, or one of my aunts. But Paula would do;). You could come too, Robin:)!
HAve you been going posting crazy or am I really this slow?! I love Paula! I don’t cook but I love to listen to her talk and boss her men around. 😀
