Happy Birthday, Paula Deen!

The Food Network star turns 66 today, Jan. 19, and we're sure she's cooking up a big feast, y'all! But before she was a famous foodie, Deen was just like any other teen -- she attended her high school prom.

In the picture below, Deen is pictured at Albany High School's prom in 1965 in Albany, Ga. Sporting dark locks, the gray-haired Southern celebrity chef is barely recognizable!
