It Ain't All About The Cookin' by Paula Deen - BOOK REVIEW

I always gravitate towards non-fiction. I prefer biographies, auto biographies and how-to books to drama and fantasy.  I have ADD!  There's plenty of drama and fantasy in my life!


Paula Deen is one of the most charming television personalities on Food Network. Her down home southern charm compliments her old-fashioned, southern cooking quite nicely.

I recently read this wonderful book and I thought my readers would enjoy hearing about it and perhaps reading it themselves.


Paula, did not always live the charmed life that she does now. Although she started out with wonderful, loving, parents and family, her strong family roots didn't keep her from making mistakes along the way. We're all human, right?

Paula struggled with Depression, Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia. Unless someone has experienced these debilitating Disorders, they have no clue what it does to the physical, mental and emotional being and the spiritual being. Yet, without this experience, Paula may never have risen to the "Queen Of Butter" that she is now. After reading this wonderful, well written memoir, I truly believe that what doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger!

It Ain't All About The Cookin' by Paula Deen is one of the best auto biographies I've read in years! Paula has a wonderful sense of humor and her writing is quite the reflection of her speaking!  Meaning, she writes just like she talks!  Fun!

I have loved Paula Deen since I first saw her on Food Network years ago!  She's down to earth, kind, giving and thoughtful.  If you suffer from depression, you might find it helpful to know that many celebrities suffer with it as well.  If you love to cook and bake or if you're thinking about starting your own restaurant business, you'll definitely want to read this book!  Paula also includes some of her best loved recipes!

If you do suffer from depression, anxiety or panic disorder, you might like to read my articles on Coping With Depression.
