Thought Paula Deen wouldn't be able to recover from the backlash of her diabetes announcement? Think again. Deen's been pretty busy lately. She's developing a new line of food products to be available at retail stores nationally starting in 2013, with some initial products available as early as September. By teaming up with the Nanco Group, an upstate New York supplier, Deen hopes to sell a variety of products (specifics not yet revealed) that you can prepare at home.
Deen is also currently shopping around a new cooking competition/game show called "Food Chain," with Zodiak USA, Variety reports. It seems to be a knockoff of a popular Italian show "Cuochi e Fiamme."
7. Ribs Casserole
This recipe starts, as all good Paula recipes do, "with a lil' butter," which translates, naturally, into an entire saucepan full.
6. Red Velvet Cake
A classic Southern dessert from the classic Southern chef.
5. Creamed Corn
The operative word in the title here is "creamed."
4. Peanut Butter Fudge
Many Paula Deen recipe titles combine a great noun with a decadent adjective. This one gloriously bucks that grammatical trend and instead combines two decadent nouns, to awesome, sexy effect.
3. Hot Artichoke-Spinach Dish
This dish nominally contains vegetables, so it's not an obvious pick for the third Deen-style sexiest dish. But it illustrates a central rule of Paula's home cooking: when in doubt, use the whole package. Also, having made this recipe before, we can attest to the fact that it is 100% decadent.
2. Fried Stuffing on a Stick
Fried. Stuffing. On. A. Stick. WTF.
If you know what a turducken is, you know that nothing in the world could possibly be more quintessentially Paula Deen. If you don't know what a turducken is, you should know that nothing in the world could possibly be more important for your life than watching this video immediately.
