It’s Alert Day®, which the American Diabetes Association describes as “a one-day ‘wake-up call’ asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test“! We’re doing our part by celebrating diabetes crusader Paula Deen, who made the world a little more safe for diabetes, then signed a multi-million dollar contract to conveniently profit off its treatment! Say what you want about ethics, Deen’s a shrewd business lady! To honor Deen, we searched her website for the most appalling recipes: all drenched in buttermilk and mayonnaise. There’s even a recipe for peanut butter cheese fudge (the secret ingredient is Velveeta!)!

Honorable mentions to the deep fried bagel sandwich and deep fried truffle cupcakes!
