As Luck Would Have It! Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen is opening in Destin.

Are you craving some delicious Southern comfort food? If you raised your hand and heard your stomach rumble back in reply, then it is your lucky day. Jump in your car and head on over to Destin Commons and enjoy mouthwatering recipes from the Queen of Southern cuisine. Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen is now open and ready to serve you endless portions of Southern-style entrees and side dishes.

It is the family-style concept that makes Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen such a welcoming place to dine. It is designed to feel like you are gathering with your friends and family at your own home. And the best part- no clean up required!

We have tested the dishes and want to highlight some of our favorites. It is a tough job but someone has to do it! The fried chicken is beyond delicious and a must try on the menu. And the Old Fashioned Southern Meatloaf is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy and it is covered in crispy tobacco onions. Are you drooling yet?

Now that you have your entrée selected, it is time to order up some sides. It is hard to go wrong with any of the side dishes, but we especially loved the Mac ’n Cheese, Green Beans, and Creamed Corn.

And what family dinner is complete without dessert? Absolutely none! The real question is which one- do you go with Paula’s famous Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, or the rich and creamy Banana Pudding, or a hot and bubbly Seasonal Cobbler? Decisions, decisions, decisions!

Before you waddle, and we do mean waddle out, of Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, do not forget to peruse through the retail side. Here you will find a wide array of linens, sauces and mixes, Paula Deen’s cookbooks or other useful kitchen tools.

You can even treat your furry little family member with yummy treats or an adorable bowl.

We look forward to seeing all of you at Destin Commons and Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen. And as Paula would say, “Hey y’all, come on in!”
