    I havenít tried her banana split cake, sounds delicious!! I like one of her mac & cheese recipes. Also her baked beans with apples is delicious! Oh, and almost forgot her recipe (actually her sonís) where you wrap pieces of chicken around cheese and cook it on the stove top. It's been a while since I've made any of these dishes - thanks for the reminer!

    I think just watching her shows has increased my cholesterol. She must have stock in a butter factory somewhere :)

    A Banana Split Cake is absolutely delicious, but the recipe I use is a little different than Paula's and, in my opinion, much better.

    I think her crust is too thick. I use only 2 cups graham crumbs with 2/3 cup melted butter. You don't have to bake it, either. Just chill it til it hardens (the butter will reharden when it gets cold). This is optional, of course, but sure helps not to turn on the oven on a hot day.

    Paule's filling is way too sweet, I think. I use only 2 cups powdered sugar. The rest of the cream filling is the same. Spread it on the chilled crust.

    I use up to 4 bananas, depends on how big they are. You want to cover the whole surface. Also, I soak them in the pineapple juice - prevents them from turning brown. Also, I lay them on the cream filling first to completely cover it, then spread on the crushed pineapple - the pineapplie is easier to spread on the bananas than on the cream.

    Sometimes, I also add a layer of sliced strawberries, which is totally optional.

    Once the Cool Whip is spread on, dot the top with maraschino cherries (drained), drizzle with a thin shocolate sauce or icing, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
    Chill thoroughly.

    This is really pretty and is just luscious.

    BTW, I have a recipe for a delicious eggless cream filling using cream cheese that works with this Banana Split Cake. I use it when an egg-allergic relative is coming, and it is also good for anyone who doesn't want to eat the raw eggs in the above recipe. Let me know if you'd like me to post it.

    I adore her - she makes recipes for the real world. You gotta love anyone that starts out by saying "take a pound of butter" - LOL.

    Live near Savannah, GA. Don't like her restaurant Lady & Son's
    Went a couple of time, pricey and much to salty. Could not eat the last time I went to salty and told them so. All they said was "Sorry" no compensation. Waste of $21 and have never been back

    I subscribed to her magazine when it first came out. Her macaroni & cheese recipe was awful. It looked curdled.She uses way too many cans of stuff & ingredients that I can get the same results with less. I also think she draws that accent like a gun. I have sen her on Good Morning America & she forgets sometimes to use her real country draw. I think she is fake.

    Ah Debra, you're entitled to your opinion, whether it coincides with anyone else's or not!

    Who ISN'T out for a buck these days? Paula Deen started with nothing, and built an empire... at least she's worked for it instead of waiting for handouts. She gets my respect for that, and for her personality...can't help it, I LOVE that laugh! ;) :)

    I watched a lot of Food Network shows....for a while. Then,one by one they dropped by the wayside.Maybe too many ingredients wasted on inedible recipes.
    I like some things about Paula's show,but just to watch, not for recipes.I cut way back on using fat/sugar, yrs ago...so not many cooking shows left for me.I like Ina Garten & a couple others.Looks to me like all pro chefs use a whole lot of fat.....that's where the flavor is.I love the ones who say "add a tbl of oil to the pan, while giving directions & the oil is going glub glub out of the bottle.:)
