Paula's Party is so much fun to watch! I love Paula Deen and her recipes are always so easy and I usually have everything on-hand. This is quick and I can't wait to give it a try. If you need a gift and want to do something unique, gather all the ingredients that are non-perishable, make a batch of the mix and put it in a jar, and include the recipe, and VIOLA! (hehehe) A very interesting present that will surely bring a smile.
