Happy Paula Deen Day!

Big discovery this morning: it's Paula Deen's 64th birthday. In honor of our favorite butter-loving Southern belle (born Paula Hiers), we've declared it Paula Deen Day. So be sure to wish your friends a Happy PDD!

We started celebrating this morning with her Kit Kat recipe, and might need to pop a gooey butter cake in the oven later.

We'll take this opportunity to spotlight some of our favorite Paula creations. Try to integrate them into your diet today if you feel so celebratory.
