She's among one of the Food Network's most popular culinary chefs and she's coming to East Texas for a book signing this week!

Paula Deen's appearance will be at Hasting's on S. Broadway in Tyler Friday evening (October 21st) at 6p to promote her new book "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible: The New Classic Guide To Delicious Dishes With More Than 300 Recipes". Paula will be signing copies of this new cookbook beginning at 6p.

What is your favorite Paula Deen recipe or show clip?

I have to admit, I find myself watching her when I scan through the channels! Her mannerisms, the way she talks and presents her food reminds me of my grandmother cooking in her kitchen (no offense to Paula)! They both have to taste everything as they go along making the food! I found a video of Paula preparing one of my daughter's favorite foods - mac and cheese. I wish my grandmother was here now to prepare this for my daughter.
