Jamie Deen to visit FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock

WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- FoxTale Book Shoppe is excited to welcome restaurateur, author and Food Network star Jamie Deen to Woodstock on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m.

Jamie believes quality time in the kitchen with his family is an important part of life. Deen grew up cooking with his mother, the iconic Paula Deen, and his brother Bobby, and now shares that tradition with his own wife and kids. Even with his busy schedule hosting the Food Network’s “Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen,” helping run the Deen family restaurants, and doing charitable work around the country, Jamie makes sure his family comes together at night to share a special meal.

Jamie’s heartfelt philosophy is at the core of his first solo cookbook, Jamie Deen’s Good Food: Cooking Up a Storm with Delicious, Family-Friendly Recipes (Kyle Books; September 2013).

Paula Deen Visits Woodstock's BJ's Wholesale

It is not everyday that an American icon comes to Woodstock which made today very exciting for local Paula Deen fans.  Paula-fever was in the air!  Fans such as 11 year old Hunter Ongeri began arriving hours in advance to make sure they got to meet their idol.  With her southern charm and no-nonsense approach, Paula has become a fan favorite for both kids and adults.  Paula and her husband, Michael, arrived at Woodstock's BJ's about 4:30pm this beautiful Sunday afternoon in a custom tour bus that could not be missed.  Paula's image adorns the huge bus along with a picture of her latest book, "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible."  Paula, not one to sit still, had a book signing earlier in the day in Greenville, SC.

Summer in Georgia & peaches for weeks: What to do with those sweet GA peaches

Summer in Georgia & peaches for weeks: What to do with those sweet GA peaches

Atlanta, GA --  The blog Running With Tweezers has a great article including a variety of great recipes for this year's peaches.  If you have had one of this year's peaches you know they are just delicious!!!  Whether you want to make ice cream, a cake or a cobbler, @RunningWithTweezers.com has the perfect recipe for you.

Around here, we’re really fortunate to have summers full of local peaches. Growing up, they were one of my dad’s favorite foods and they made appearances at our house fairly regularly. Sliced on pound cake or angel food cake, on top of cottage cheese the old school way. In the colder months, he’d even eat canned peaches straight up with a spoon. While I’m not a proponent of the tinned variety, I’m a huge fan of the fresh ones grown here in the South.
