Tasty Tangents

Food, life and other morsels

Like buttah

Okay, so I was watching Paula Deen doing her southern cooking thing on Food TV tonight, and I swear every other word was butter. They were baking with it, frying with it, you name the dish, it had butter. I’m sure she could figure out how to add butter to absolutely anything. I know her down home cooking style can be appealing, but what I can’t understand is how she isn’t twice her size! Maybe she just samples the dishes, maybe she’s just really active, I don’t know. I often wonder the same thing about other chefs, how some of them remain so trim. Anyway, it was a little scary and a little appetizing at the same time, all that butter, but I’m going to try to go easy on it to maintain my girlish figure. 😉


  1. Butter is one of those things I can’t give up. I have tried margarine and all the other alternatives, but I just can’t do it. Some butter on a pancake or a fresh roll, there’s nothing like it!

  2. They exercise, frequently… and for the most part, they eat but moderately. It’s a matter of balancing and realistically, they’re probably so sick of food from cookin it all the time that they’ve almost already eaten by the time the sit down to a meal.

    I imagine they also have personal trainers…
