Nearly five years after a racism scandal rocked her career, Paula Deen is returning to the small screen.
The butter-loving southern chef’s new series, “Positively Paula,” airs Tuesdays on RFD-TV and is syndicated nationally.
“Positively Paula” is filmed inside Deen’s home kitchen and includes appearances from her family and friends with whom she share recipes, meals and more.
“I am so excited to invite my friends from around the country into my home kitchen each week,” Deen said in a statement.

“We are going to have an incredible time cooking up a storm and sharing the most special memories.”
One early episode features a visit from Deen’s daughter-in-law, Claudia Deen. The pair shared a meal which, unbeknownst to the 70-year-old acclaimed cook, was totally vegan.
“Positively Paula” airs Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
