Update – The Press Register has more:

The sister of singer Jimmy Buffett said she will be on the air during the 9 a.m. hour, when she will be featured in a three-minute cooking segment.

On TV, she’ll prepare the tiny Wee Burgers that are favored by her youngest patrons and showcase a pre-prepared sampling of L.A. (that’s “Lower Alabama”) Caviar. The latter is a signature LuLu’s dish comprised of black-eyed peas, various peppers, onion and cherry tomatoes, among other tasty ingredients.

“It’s exciting” being on TV, Buffett said on a summer afternoon from the bar at LuLu’s. “Sometimes I get a little nervous, but then I think, ‘Oh, heck. I am just going to cook.’ Hopefully, it will sell books.”

“Crazy Sista Cooking,” which features more than 150 of Buffett’s favorite recipes mixed in with tales of life in Lower Alabama, is a self-published book. Recently, book distributor PGW signed on to give the full-color volume greater exposure.

“We’re getting ready to run another 40,000 books,” Buffett said. “Hopefully, they will do well. If not, they will just be around LuLu’s for a while.”

Many of the dishes featured in the book are served every day on the LuLu’s menu.

“Almost all of them are LuLu’s recipes,” Buffett said. “I figure it’s not like they are big secrets. If you want to go and make an oyster loaf, I am sure you can do as well as I do. I want to make sure people enjoy the food, but I’m not sure that’s the whole reason people love LuLu’s.”
