My Delicious Life with Paula Deen
by Michael Groover with Sherry Suib Cohen
(Simon & Schuster, 2009, 222 pages)
We all know who Paula Deen is, but this book is insight into her life as seen through the eyes of a man who is truly in love with the woman. From their unusal meeting, through an unusual romance, to their beautiful wedding. What a fun read! It’s all about a rough and gruff sea “Captain” meeting up with a blue-eyed southern beauty. Their crazy courtship ends up in a fairy tale wedding and the celebrity life she leads throws him for a loop. He, too, is an amazing cook, so now the question is, who makes the best chicken and dumplings ?? 🙂 I truly enjoyed this book from start to finish. I have always admired Paula Deen and the trials she has been through so it was a delight to see a side of her life that turned into an amazing friendship/romance. The bonus is a few of the Captain’s recipes, shared at the end of each chapter.
