    From Paula Dean!!? icon_eek.gif

    That woman is awesome, but she deep fries EVERYTHING: Check this out:

    The Lady and Sons Lasagna, prepared, refrigerated overnight, and cut into 15 squares, recipe follows
    Flour, for coating
    2 eggs, beaten
    Plain bread crumbs, for coating
    Peanut oil, for frying
    Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
    Dredge each square in flour then egg and then bread crumbs to coat. Fry for about 1 minute until golden brown.

    She also deep fried Cinnamon rolls!!

    Here is a recipe I like from Foodnetwork:

    Curried Chicken Salad

    1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    1 cup water
    1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves, no more than 3/4-inch thick
    1/4 cup sliced almonds
    1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
    2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon curry powder
    1 cup halved red grapes
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    5 ounces mixed greens (about 5 cups lightly packed))
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    Bring the broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add chicken to broth and simmer, covered, for 8 minutes. Turn the heat off and let chicken stand in the cooking liquid, covered, until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the broth and cool completely in the refrigerator. Cut into 1/4-inch dice. Toast the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant and beginning to turn golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
    In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, and curry powder. Fold in the chicken, grapes and cilantro and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

    In a large bowl, toss the greens with the oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the greens on 4 individual plates, top with a scoop of the chicken salad and sprinkle with the almonds.

    I have made lots of her stuff... usually at work when cooking in the fire station and then holiday dinners and stuff. But yeah, her stuff is so fattening and so good.

    My roommate made her Crock Pot Mac N' Cheese, it was fantastic. I'm sure it had like 10,000 grams of fat in it but hey, whatever, that's why the gym is there, to burn it off.

    how about this:

    4 medium yellow squash
    4 medium zuchinni
    1 large onion
    1/2 stick of butter
    1/4 cup of sugar
    salt and pepper to taste
    dash of cinnamon
    bread crumbs

    sautee the vegetables with the butter and spices, cook until soft, but not mushy. allow some of the liquid to cook off, but have enough for the bread crumbs to absorb. stir in bread crumbs. transfer to baking dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

    had this at my friends house the other night.... it was awesome!
