Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up

Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When beloved author, TV star, and chef Paula Deen was diagnosed with diabetes, she thought it might be a curse, but it turned out to be a blessing. While food had always played a major part in her life—from offering comfort during the tough early days to making mealtimes special for her family to inspiring her business and professional life—it would now play an even bigger role: as the key to managing her health. By taking charge of her life and making small changes—a little less sugar here, a slight substitution there—she reaped big results. Paula soon found herself forty pounds slimmer and feeling great, all the while eating the Southern favorites we all love: (oven) fried chicken, lower-fat biscuits, and red velvet cake—lightened up!

 

Now she’s back with a brand-new cookbook featuring fresh twists on her treasured recipes for anyone who wants to lose weight, control blood sugar, lower high cholesterol, or just serve healthier meals to their families. Filled with 250 lightened-up-but-still-delicious recipes, Paula Deen’s New Testament offers classics like

           

• Everyone’s Favorite Pimiento Cheese

• New Savannah Gumbo

• The Lady’s New Cheesy Mac

• Beaufort Shrimp Pie

• Nutty Sweet Potato Balls

• All-New Peach Cobbler

 

And soon-to-be favorites such as

 

• Crabby Shrimp Dip

• Kale Caesar Salad

• Better-Than-Basic Meat Loaf

• Southwest Chicken Enchiladas

• Baked Coconut Shrimp

• Flourless Chocolate Fudge Cake

 

But this is no ordinary cookbook. With honesty, insight, and her trademark Southern charm, Paula also shares for the first time her personal story of triumphs over adversity and explains her decision to go public with her diabetes, a disease that affects millions. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Paula’s dishes or looking to incorporate healthier meals into your life, Paula Deen’s New Testament is a friendly, fun guide to having your cake—and eating it, too!
