I love Paula. No, we are not on a first name basis, but I feel like we are.
This lady can cook. Really cook. I can honestly say that I have been cooking her recipes for 10 years and have not found a single thing that I didn't like. Perhaps it is because she cooks the way my mother used to cook.
obsession love for her cooking began here:
The Lady & Sons Restaurant
During my 149 days of bed rest (for Charlie), I watched the Food Network a lot.
Paula's life story is very inspiring. She created her businesses from nothing. She is doing what she loves and it is paying of BIG time. See? I told you I feel like we are on a first name basis.
Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite of all her desserts. No, I don't enjoy baking, but this recipe is simple and easy.
Gooey Butter Cake
Have you tried it? If not, you must make it right now. On Sunday, we had lunch at my sister-in-law's house. Since it had been a while since I have had this, I made it.....and topped it with homemade whipped cream. Paula's cake is much prettier than mine (below).
