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.

About the Host

Bobby Deen

After growing up in a traditional Southern kitchen, self-proclaimed "Georgia Boy" Bobby Deen went to work with his brother, Jamie, in their mother Paula's kitchen at age 18. Bobby, along with Jamie and their mom, founded a small Savannah catering business known for delivering "lunch and love in a bag," which grew into one of Savannah's most-loved restaurants, The Lady & Sons.
