Paula Deen is the host of the Food Network's Paula's Home Cooking and Paula's Best Dishes. She tells NPR's Steve Inskeep that while her recipes are known for their bacon and butter, she and her family don't indulge in them every day.
Food Network star Paula Deen loves seasoning, bacon and, of course, a bit of butter.
She also loves Southern cooking, which why her latest cookbook, Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible, explores the regional variations of Southern food.
Deen tells NPR's Steve Inskeep that she first discovered some of those variations in her home state of Georgia.
The staff at the New York Public Library made some noise Monday while celebrating a major birthday. The library's main building in Manhattan opened to the public exactly 100 years ago.

It's also 100 years of Patience and Fortitude: the names of the lion statues that stand guard on the steps of the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
