Okay ya'll, I have a confession to make. . . . .
I love Paula Dean.
I absolutely love her, her sweet southern accent, how she cooks everything in about a pound of butter and/or lard, even how she won't touch a vegetable unless it's been drenched in some form of oil or meat bit.
Most of all though, I love trying to make her recipes healthier and vegan, without loosing that southern flavor.
It's no secret that as humans we crave fat. Especially for a vegan, that craving can be down right hard to ignore. Especially since 99% of the foods we eat are naturally low in fat.
That is why I love her recipes so much. They are perfect for those "craving fat, nothing else will do" kind of nights. You know, the ones where you could literally eat sugar out of the canister, or couldn't imagine slathering enough Earth's Balance on your already buttery mashed potatoes?
I already love me some good, VEGAN, comforting southern cooking. And I can't think of a better place to find resources than with her.
Now, if you'll excuse me ya'll, she's on and with a special Thanksgiving episode, including fried stuffing on a stick!!! Now tell me that doesn't sound good!
