After her break from Food Network in 2013, Paula Deen is back in the kitchen and in front of the camera for her Paula Deen Network, which will debut Sept. 24.

“I am just so thrilled to take my fans on this amazing adventure,” Deen told People magazine in an exclusive sneak peek of her network, which will include a Pictionary-like program and a show focusing on healthier eats, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at her life.

“I’m a Southern girl, so of course I love me some butter, but moderation is key,” Deen said. She announced in 2012 that she had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes three years earlier.

Deen told The New York Times then the three-year lag time in going public was part of a necessary personal journey.

“I wanted to wait until I had something to bring to the table,” she said.

The cooking maven was fired from Food Network last year after she admitted to using racial slurs that were part of a discrimination lawsuit brought against her by a former employee.

In August of 2013, a U.S. district judge in Savannah, Georgia, dismissed a portion of the lawsuit that claimed the former employee, Lisa Jackson, was a victim of racial discrimination.

Subscription plans for her new online network start at $7.99 per month.
