Forging your future

Hey y’all

As if to welcome me to my new job, on October 20, my editors sent me to cover the book signing of southern culinary icon Paula Deen when she stopped in Monroe on her book tour for her latest release (and New York Times bestseller), “Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible.”

Hundreds of people were lined up along the bookshelves of the Books-A-Million, and as I interviewed patrons for two stories, one about Deen’s new book and the other about Muammar Gaddafi’s death, it seemed people had more to say about the latest Ooey Gooey Cake recipe than the death of the Libyan dictator.

And why wouldn’t they?

A mixture of eggs, sugar, vanilla, cream cheese and of course, butter, it was no light matter.
