UPDATE: Oliver Maner LLP Issued the Following Statement Regarding Civil Action File No. CV12-03960-AB in Eastern Judicial Circuit of Chatham County, Georgia, on Behalf of Paula Deen Enterprises, LLC

SAVANNAH, Ga.– Statement Regarding Civil Action File No. CV12-03960-AB in Eastern Judicial Circuit of Chatham County, Georgia:

“Ms. Jackson did work for Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House, and she did some work for Paula Deen Enterprises, LLC. She now claims that she was mistreated during her employment. We investigated those claims and attempted unsuccessfully to address those claims with her. She has made baseless, inflammatory allegations, threatening to go to the press and ruin Paula Deen’s reputation and the reputation of her businesses unless we paid her a large sum of money. We refused to bow to that kind of pressure and refused to pay money to address false claims. Ms. Jackson’s complaint makes false allegations against Paula Deen and they will be proven false in court. We have filed our defensive pleadings with the court denying Ms. Jackson’s claims and those pleadings are a matter of public record. We will hold Ms. Jackson and her lawyer accountable for these false allegations. We look forward to our day in court and have nothing further to say.”

100 years of Oreo cookies

Whether you twist them, split them, snap them or just chomp on in, it's a slam dunk for lovers of the iconic Oreo cookie. The first one was sold to a Hoboken, New Jersey, grocer 100 years ago today.

While the traditional chocolate wafer and single filling layer reigns supreme with consumers, to the tune of more than $2 billion in global annual revenues, Nabisco began offering variations such as the "Double Stuf" (with twice the standard amount of icing) in 1975, and the 100-calorie-per-cookie "Triple Double" (three wafers, and a layer each of standard and chocolate icing) in 2011.

Due to public health concerns, Nabisco phased out lard from the original filling recipe in favor of trans-fats, which themselves came under fire in 2003. As of 2006, all classic-format cookies have been made with non-hydrogenated vegetable oil.

People-pleasing pizza dip

My folks have the kind of house where people walk in the door and feel like they’ve come home. It always smells like my mother's latest culinary creation and it pleases me to no end when someone who doesn’t live there feels comfortable enough to kick off their shoes and dig in at the dinner table.

This outwardly barren time of year makes me think of gatherings that brought a full-bodied glow to our home.

Like all good gatherings, it started out small and became a necessity because it was such a success.

It was junior year of high school, and my friends and I were slogging through AP U.S. history. The class was a behemoth of information that made it feel as though we had to relearn the entire history of our young country. After nine months of that oddly rewarding torture and joy, I can safely say that our country didn’t feel so young. But nevertheless, the study session snack marathon was born.
