Some airlines say they're getting squeezed by a shortage of limes.

A spokesman for United Airlines, which is part of United Continental Holdings, says the airline is currently flying with only 15% to 20% of its usual stock of limes.

"If the caterers are light on limes when they supply our flights, then we'll serve lemons," said Rahsaan Johnson. "We've asked them to continue to provide limes where available, but to cater more lemons until lime supplies normalize," he added.

Paula Deen is back, y'all. She's opening a restaurant this summer at the foot of the Smoky Mountains, marking her first move back into business after a scandal derailed her many enterprises.

Deen's new restaurant and retail store will be called "Paula Deen's Family Kitchen" and located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

The 20,000 square foot Southern-fried facility is the premiere enterprise to come out of her new firm, Paula Deen Ventures, which was launched just weeks ago with backing from Phoenix-based Najafi Media. It will have an operating budget of about $20 million.

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. Paula Deen Ventures includes all the restaurants, cruises, cookbooks, cookware and other products that focus on her touting of traditional Southern cuisine.

Deen is partnering with Phoenix-based Najafi Media, which specializes in consumer distribution. Jahm Najafi, founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement Wednesday that he has "a deep respect for the hard work, unique content and quality products which Paula has built around her brand."

The fried, cream-filled, croissant-doughnut hybrid has a cult following in New York, where patrons line up outside the Dominique Ansel Bakery every morning.
