Bobby Deen's Memorial Day Tips

Staff Writer
The Cooking Channel host gives his advice for the holiday

Bobby Deen has been working on making recipes healthier on his Cooking Channel show Not My Mama's Meals, but that doesn't mean he can't go all out for a holiday as big as Memorial Day.

We recently caught up with the host and restaurateur at an event celebrating veterans in honor of the holiday weekend, and got his tips for hosting. As he is from Savannah, Ga., he suggested we all try a traditional Low Country boil, which is great for a crowd of any size. He even divulged a few of his healthier tips, including the fact that he often uses beets in his red velvet cupcakes both for the color and the nutritional value.
