Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beloved Food Network personality, restaurateur, and author Paula Deen loves a party, and in her latest book, Paula Deen Celebrates!, Paula shares with fans old and new how she celebrates a year's worth of holidays and special occasions. Now anyone can share in the down-home celebrations Paula, her husband, Michael, their kids, and extended family enjoy at their beautiful home in Savannah, Georgia.

What better way to start off the New Year than with a New Year's Eve Brunch with friends — at midnight! This colorful celebration includes Crab and Spinach Casserole and Baked Tomatoes, and finishes with a quintessentially southern Hummingbird Cake and Irish Coffee. Welcome St. Patrick's Day, Savannah style, with Lamb Stew and Green Grits Pie. The centerpiece of an Easter dinner is a Peanut Butter-Glazed Ham, accompanied by Spinach-Swiss Casserole, Squash Boats, and flaky Butterhorns, with a bonus recipe for Ham Salad that makes eating leftovers a treat. Looking for a reason to party, south-of-the-border style? Try Paula's Cinco de Mayo Fiesta menu, with Macho Nachos and a cool and creamy Margarita Mousse. Paula honors the memory of her mother, and all the other women who have blessed her life, with a Mother's Day Tea of dainty sandwiches and irresistible cookies served on her best china, and fathers get their due with a Father's Day Boating Picnic. The Fourth of July is the perfect occasion for an Outdoor Grill Party and Low-Country Boil, and if what you want is a quiet evening at home, pop a movie in the DVD player and chow down on your choice of Paula's savory and sweet pizzas. Gather the family to watch some football and savor Jamie's Cheeseburger Pies, and give family and friendsthe gift of a sweet treat at the holidays with Paula's Icebox Fruitcake or Peppermint Bark. Her Christmas feast starts with Cranberry Holiday Brie and stars an impressive Standing Rib Roast, with Twice-Baked Potato Casserole. The show-stopping dessert is Paula's butter-laden Coconut Pound Cake glazed with coconut syrup and covered with icing and toasted coconut!

Paula brings you into her home, her kitchen, and her heart with family stories and photographs. This time, her husband, Michael, sons Jamie and Bobby, and brother, Bubba, chime in to share their memories, too. Decorating and serving ideas will inspire you to use what you have to carry through a theme to make the most informal meal special. And Paula shares her most private thoughts in a special feature — Paula's Pearls of Wisdom — which you'll find with each menu.

Paula Deen Celebrates! is Paula at her very southern best. Join her in making and sharing her best dishes for the best times of your life.

Review:

"Popular Food Network personality Paula Deen returns, focusing on memorable meals for special occasions. Teaming up with Savannah Magazine's Martha Nesbit, the two offer full-blown menus for a wide range of events-from Easter and Mother's Day to Sunday afternoon football and Elvis's birthday. True to form, butter, cream and mayonnaise are well represented, as are a healthy sprinkling of 'ya'lls.' Deen packs the book with her trademark stories of family and friends, as well as decorating and entertaining tips from her personal assistant, Brandon Branch. Recipes run the gamut, from old favorites like Peppermint Bark and Chicken Pot Pie to Cream Cheese and Chicken Enchiladas, Oyster-Stuffed Quail and Herb-Crusted Pork Loin. Deen is known for her love of southern cooking, and dishes like Black-Eyed Pea Dip, Succotash and Country Fried Steak with Gravy are surefire winners. But her use of collard greens in Collard Green and Ham Hock Pizza and Collard Green Wontons push the envelope a bit, as do some of the decorating ideas from Branch. Those with a cursory knowledge of cooking will find the recipes well within their range, and Deen's low-key approach to cooking-which emphasizes enjoying the process rather than getting wound up about the results-will build confidence." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The introductions to the menus offer reminiscences and observations in Deen's friendly, down-to-earth style, and there are photographs of family and friends scattered throughout. Sure to be in demand." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Packed with imaginative menus and tempting recipes that add a southern accent to all of the traditional holidays, Deen also offers a bounty of comfort foods to celebrate such whimsical occasions as Elvis' s birthday and St. Patrick's Day, while President's Day turns into a salute to Jimmy Carter.

Synopsis:

From beloved Food Network personality, restaurateur, and New York Times, bestselling author Deen comes a cookbook and entertaining guide for creating delicious meals and spectacular down-home celebrations for the holidays all year round.
