Nothing tastes like Christmas more than a little bourbon and butter.

So says Paula Deen, who brought both ingredients into her kitchen during her Christmas video released earlier this month.

In the wild and sometimes random clip, Deen invites over a group of friends to watch her cook some memorable dishes.

From baked potatoes (with plenty of bacon) to breakfast sandwiches for Christmas morning, everything looks so dang tasty.

"Y'all, this makes me want to cry," Deen shares in the clip. "That was perfect."

And as any good cook knows, a meal isn't complete without some tasty drinks.

"Nothing says Christmas like drinking a glass of bourbon whipped cream," Jamie Deen shares. "Woo, that's good," Bobby Deen adds.

It's been quite the year for Paula and her cooking empire.

After her career suffered a major setback in 2013 after she admitted to using the N-word in the past, Deen has carefully planned a successful comeback.

In addition to a 20-city tour that began in June, the former Food Network host recently launched her own digital network appropriately titled The Paula Deen Network.

"We're going to have so much fun being together and cooking up some wonderful new and classic dishes. Y'all can get my recipes, tips and cooking anytime you want—this is for you," she shared with fans after the announcement. "I can't wait to crank up the oven and get cooking for the people I love: my family, my friends and my fans!"

And just because she's moving forward, Deen still regrets her word choices that landed her in such hot water.

"I disappointed myself. And for that, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry for the hurt that I've caused people," Deen recently shared on the Today show. "I'm here to make people happy, not to bring sadness."
