About the Show

In this series, Bobby Deen takes his mother, Paula Deen's, recipes and transforms her Southern comfort food into lighter, lean, yet still delicious dishes. Each week, we'll follow Bobby as he tries to recreate one of his mama's famous meals with healthy substitutes that cut down on calories and fat but still deliver on taste.
