Are you ready to get a daily dose of Paula Deen?

The celebrity chef is ready to take over the airwaves with a brand-new radio show and weekly podcast about all things cooking!

"I had my first day in the studio yesterday and we had so much fun!" the former Food Network host revealed to People. "I cannot wait to bring my vignettes and podcast to listeners around America. I have a ton of fun tips up my sleeve to make their life a little easier."

And we can totally count on some butter-filled recipes, right y'all?! Scheduled to debut May 1, the podcasts will be targeted toward country and news-talk stations. 

Meanwhile, her daily project titled Get Cooking with Paula Deen will feature tips to help fans both in the kitchen and at life. But fair warning, the segments will only be about one-minute long each day. Finally, her live 30-minute weekly show What's Cooking with Paula Deen will continue and include her creative director Brandon Branch.

Deen's latest venture with Compass Media Networks comes after the 68-year-old launched her own digital network in September 2014. The interactive digital site was one of her biggest steps back into the spotlight after her 2013 scandal.

"I have to say it's the hardest thing that I've ever been through in my life," Deen explained to Meredith Vieira. "When people ask me, ‘Paula how does one get through things like that?' I tell you it was the four F's: My family, my friends, my faith, my fans."

She added, "My fans saved my life…They would not even consider me just going away."
