I had the amazing opportunity last week to attend Paula Deen Live in Charlotte, NC and get to experience first hand what fun and how much love and heart she brings to the stage and her cooking. When Paula Deen’s team contacted me, I was pretty excited. I’m not only a Paula Deen fan, but was so eager to hear more about what she’s been up to.
The most excited part of the show (aside from getting to see her with her sweet husband and sons,) was hearing about what the Deen Team has been up to and what they’re working on – and it’s good ya’ll!
Paula has been cooking up something seriously awesome and it’s literally a game changer for the television world. Welcome to The Paula Deen Network!
What does the Paula Deen Network have to offer? The real question is, what does is NOT!? You can access all of Paula’s old episodes along with HUNDREDS of new ones airing on a regular basis, recipes upon recipes all organized by category (there’s even a separate Holiday Recipes section, too!) There are game shows and Paula’s sons even hinted at the fact that you’ll be able to cook live with Paula and her family and send in questions as you go – it’s truly a groundbreaking and innovative idea and it was so much fun to be a part of the excitement to launch such an exciting new venture for the Deen family!
While there are some free options, the network is subscription based, but you can sign up for a free trial to poke around first. Head on over to the Paula Deen Network, take a look around, test our some recipes – then come back and let me know what ya’ll think!
If you have a Paula Deen Live coming near you, go see it – I promise you, you won’t regret it! Everyone has such a blast. The show in Charlotte was started out with a band who Paula met when the lead singer interviewed her for a magazine, they got the show moving and it was so fun! He even wrote a song about Paula and presented her with a few fun new songs we’re supposed to be able to find on the new network! Lee Greenwood even shows up to sing his hit song, “God Bless the USA” and share his good work he’s doing helping build homes for US soldiers – Paula even got some of her sponsors in on it to help furnish the homes! All in all, it was such a fun evening filled some special people making some really special memories. I can’t wait to see where this new network goes and what else comes from Paula and her amazing support system in the coming year!
And check out this video of the countdown to launching Paula’s network in Charlotte last week – the vibe in that room was truly amazing and it was an honor for me to be a part of such a fun event! I even had the opportunity to join Paula and her husband and son’s at an after party to toast this new venture and share in the excitement and love for Paula everyone shared that night!
