Crinkly-eyed smiles and dimples you can get lost in.
Okay, I’m not done with it…I wanna say more.
One brother is chasing 40, the other is winking at it over his shoulder. One is married with a two-year-old, the other was a 2006 People Magazine’s "Hottest Bachelor". Both s i z z l e.
My sister and I just happened to walk in to the MC&E Show when they walked onto the floor. In a flurry, my sister snapped a picture of me and Jamie while I quizzed him about Phil-the-webmaster. Jamie assured me Phil was real, brilliant, they were fortunate to have him in their organization, and he most definitely was not a machete-wielding murder-rapist-er.
When I bought tickets for the Viking Celebrity Cooking Theater to see the Deen brothers and their mama, I didn’t realize it was such a large venue. I was thinking an up-close-and-personal cooking demo like the ones at Fresh Market; I might as well have been lickin’ toads to be so misguided! Their session was entertaining; it just wasn’t what I expected (they talked more than cooked).
Bobby and Jamie have great chemistry, infectious personalities and a high regard for women. No wonder they charm women from 16 to 96!
If you’ve read me
for any length of time–heck, if you just take a look at my left sidebar!–you know I notice feet. The insane thing about this picture is this lady didn’t think it was odd at.tall. that I wanted to photograph her feet–she was VERY proud that Paula asked her to "plop her foot right up on the table" so she could get a closer look.
Then there’s Charles-the-Pastry-Chef. He wanted to create something spectacular… memorable…an
original work of culinary art for his Kitchen Princess. So, he married two of Paula Deen’s favorite things–butter and Elvis– and voila! An Elvis-Impersonated- by-a-stick-of-butter cake! At the show it made p.e.r.f.e.c.t. sense. Now? Well…you be the judge (click his picture for a close-up of the cake).
Stay tuned…my top three highlights are coming soon :).
