  • Recently we have seen and heard a lot about Paula Deen and her diagnosis of Type II Diabetes. 

    People, mainly media, are so quick to criticize when we take a misstep, but remember what everyone was saying about Ms. Deen prior to her recent admission.  They were singing her praises. She does happen to have very good recipes, however, we can make changes.
