Interesting reading. One cannot but admire a woman who works so hard to change her life and takes the risks to do so. Obviously, she is a successful cook but I grew up in the upper Midwest and several of the foods she talks about as being Southern are also favored where I grew up including fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw and many others.

It is a nice to see the recipes she included at the end of most chapters. Sometimes I was disappointed when she would rave about a certain food but give a recipe for something else. That happened twice and the first time was in chapter one where I looked for peanut butter balls. One particular food selection she found a gentleman made is appealing to my husband - a hamburger, topped with a fried egg, a little cheese and sliced onions all of which are among his favorites.

This book is about a tough woman who works hard to make a living for herself and her sons. She thrives on foods made by her family members yet seeks the special dishes that other make as well. From cooking for family, the public and on television shows she enjoys the moment. And, she speaks her mind sometimes forgetting that others have opinions, too, but she learns from her mistakes and tries to overcome them. All in all, one can say that Paula Deen could be the woman nextdoor who likes to cook and loves doing it.
