COOKING CHANNEL SERVES UP FRESH SERIES FOR THE NEW YEAR

Not My Mama's Meals with Bobby Deen to Premiere Wednesday, January 4th at 9pm ET/6pm PT

Drop 5 lbs with Good Housekeeping Based on Popular Weight Loss Column Joins Lineup on Saturday, January 21st at 11am ET/8am PT

NEW YORK, NY - December 7, 2011 - Cooking Channel kick-starts the New Year with two new series designed to help viewers lose weight and change their eating habits. In Not My Mama's Meals, premiering Wednesday, January 4th at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT, Bobby Deen takes his mother's (Paula Deen) recipes and transforms her southern comfort food into lighter, leaner, yet still delicious versions of her dishes, with special guest appearances by Paula Deen, Daphne Oz, among others. Emphasizing small changes that deliver big results, Drop 5 lbs with Good Housekeeping premieres Saturday, January 21st at 11am ET/8am PT. Based on the magazine's popular weight loss column, the series is hosted by Melissa d'Arabian (Ten Dollar Dinners with Melissa d'Arabian), and also features expert advice from fitness guru Ashley Borden, Good Housekeeping Nutrition Director Samantha Cassetty and Aarti Sequeira (Aarti Party).

"After a season of over-indulging, January is the perfect time to introduce Cooking Channel viewers to Not My Mama's Meals and Drop 5 lbs," said Bruce Seidel, Senior Vice President, Programming, Cooking Channel. "Both shows emphasize healthier foods that are still delicious - with expertise from Bobby Deen, who prepares his mother Paula's world famous dishes with a lighter touch, and tips from Good Housekeeping's Drop 5 lbs 'small change, big result' philosophy."

Each week on Not My Mama's Meals Bobby Deen will recreate some of his mother's famous meals with healthy substitutions that cut down on calories and fat, but still deliver on taste. Bobby begins his culinary quest by putting a unique spin on two of his mom's dishes, her Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding and Chocolate Mousse Pie, by whipping up a Fresh Fruit Bread Pudding and Frozen Chocolate Pie. The Bag Lady herself (Paula Deen) makes a surprise visit to help Bobby lighten up two dishes that go way back - her Pimento Cheese Sandwiches and Gooey Butter Cake.

Designed to make weight loss easy and manageable, Drop 5 lbs with Good Housekeeping episodes are filled with cooking and shopping tips, workout techniques and dining out do's and don'ts. From slimmed down versions of indulgent dishes like Fettucini Alfredo and Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry to fat blasting fitness plans and nutritional advice, this series offers a new approach to eating better, getting healthier and getting the most out of life.

Not My Mama's Meals is produced by Follow Productions.

Drop 5 lbs with Good Housekeeping is produced by Scripps Networks, in partnership with Good Housekeeping.
