December 1, 2005

Albany- Albany Native and Food Network Chef Paula Deen cooked up a message of inspiration in the Good Life City Thursday.

Deen spoke before a packed ballroom at the Hilton Garden Inn for the first GraceWay Benefit. GraceWay is a recovery home for women working on sobriety. Deen had lunch with center residents Thursday. She delivered a recipe for success.

"Never, give up. As long as we wake up on the right side of the dirt we have another chance. We have another chance to help our selves and to make life better," said Paula Deen, Chef.

The Hilton staff prepared Thursday's meal using Deen's recipes and with help from some of her staff.
