I tried three of your recipes this weekend for my son's birthday party. They were a hit! We had the bunco buns, spinich dip and carmalized onion dip. Thanks so much for posting recipes here. I love to try new things but I want "real" people to try them first.

I have been following Harper's story & want you to know that we have prayed over her many times. So glad that the Lord has healed her. His faithfulness is amazing! Your recipe blog is my kind of thing...good 'ol southern type cooking.

Hey, I see that Harper is letting you do a little baking! This pie looks divine!

I followed your inspirational story and prayed for your sweet baby. So glad that she is doing well (and is as cute as ever.)

Paula's recipe calls for bourbon...not that I have ever bought the stuff or where would know where to look, but does it still tastes good without it?

Also, on Paula's site - there were complaints of it not cooking long enough - anyone else have that problem?
