Phyllis People, Video 13 Comments

As you know, one of the most wonderful days of my life was when I met Paula Deen. For the past 10 years our friendship has blossomed, and our joint-venture, Cooking with Paula Deen, now reaches over three million readers across the country.

If you haven’t already, watch the first installment of this intimate chat in our three-part video series. In part two, we chat about one of my favorite topics — our grandchildren — plus, what’s inside the pages of the magazine, and Paula’s new family-style restaurant in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Come back next week to see even more Paula, and join in the fun as she gives me all the details about her new Paula Deen Network.

What’s your favorite section of Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine?
