Paula Deen is coming back.
Less than a year after her association with a racist slur led to the loss of her TV contract and many sponsors, Deen has created a new company.

America's Test Kitchen is a real 2,500 square foot test kitchen located just outside of Boston that is home to more than three dozen full-time cooks and product testers.
