Bobby Deen is the son of Southern chef Paula Deen, and a good chef in his own right. His mother's food is popular, but it's notorious for being unhealthy (Krispy Kreme burgers, anyone?). Bobby seeks to change that in this series in which he re-creates some of Paula's most-popular recipes, making them healthier but not compromising taste, such as transforming her gooey butter cake into a gooey butter cake with less butter. Paula also makes an occasional appearance to help her son with some of the recipes.
