Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen

By Jamie Deen

Premiere Episode:
June 16th at 10:30am/9:30 c
Food Network

Well y’all, the moment has finally arrived! “Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen” is here!

A lot of blood, sweat, and tears – okay, so maybe only the sweat part – has gone into the making of my brand new show, and I can’t wait for you to see it.

When I was thinking of a concept for my new show, it took me a minute to think of something that I really loved. I knew that I loved the idea of cooking locally and seasonally, with fresh ingredients, but I wasn’t sure what the right angle was. Then I thought about my family, and other working families. It’s tough, if you’re a family always on-the-go, to provide well-balanced meals for your loved ones.

So I thought that’s the way to go – and I’m so passionate about it; so is my family. Brooke, Jack, and I love preparing meals together, and I know it won’t be too long before our newest addition, Matthew, joins in the tradition as well.

I had such a blast filming these new shows for y’all, that I wanted to take you on a behind-the-scenes look at the process. All of the photos are courtesy of our dear friend Christine Hall.

Mic check - one two, one two!

And here we go – Home for Dinner – take one…or a million. I forget!

Here’s my little Sous Chef, Jack Deen, helpin’ Daddy out with dinner.

Gosh, I am one lucky man. I’ve got such a gorgeous family.

Even my producer, Gordon, and the rest of the production crew got caught babysitting a time or two.

Doesn’t that look good, y’all?

Mama came by, too, to help out. But secretly, I think she just wanted to spend time with her grandbabies!

That’s a wrap, y’all!

Do good things,

Dear Jamie, I love to watch your show with you and your beautiful family. I have watched your mom's show for years and I have most of the cookbooks as well, having said that ,,,, I watched your show today where you cooked your brother Bobby's birthday dinner and bought him the guitar... that was absolutely wonderful. In this day so many siblings are in completion or just plain resentful of one another, it is sooo refreshing to see the two of you together and being as close as you are, that is priceless. your wife and children are just beautiful. we vacationed at Tybee this past summer and it was a delight, but I was never able to get reservations for your restaurant, maybe one day, and try and bring your family up to Myrtle Beach, S.C. for a few days!!! Thank you for your time and keep up the amazing work !! God bless you and yours, Glenda Brown

Absolutely love the picture of Paula with her grandbabies. Pride just bursts out from that grand smile of hers. I just finished reading the book Paula Deen and just started reading My Life with Paula Deen. Two great reads. I If there were more Paula Deen and families like hers with love, respect and laughter, this world would be a better place to live in.

I absolutely love your family! Seeing Jamie fix the Pork chop lunch with you on the show made my heart just melt!

Dear Jamie, I watch your show and enjoy it. I do have one suggestion. The camera lens looks dusty and spotty. Can you have someone clean it please? Keep on with you shows, you are doing a great job. Love seeing your family. Sincerely, Dee

I watched Home for Dinner for the first time today and did enjoy it. I definitely would like to try the babyback ribs and twice baked potatoes. I am loving that large veggie picture hanging in the kitchen. Would love to buy one for my kitchen since I have a vegetable theme. I plan to watch future shows.

Jamie, I realize this is your blog, but I just had to say I LOVE your show and the way you and Brook are raising the boys. They are a joy to watch. I am also taking this opportunity to say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE PAULA DEEN AND MISS HER. I have even stopped supporting her former partners with my few pennies. I wish her the best and definitely look forward to seeing much more of her in the future when all this mess is over with. She just touches my heart.

Jamie, I just love your show,what a woderful wife and those 2 precious boys, you are a blessed man. Wishing you and your family all the best. And I support your mother at this difficut time. You are all in my thoughts an prayers. I've been to Savannah and did Paula's tour an ate at Lady & Sons, the best food Ive ever had, I even think it is better than the Manison on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Take care. looking foward to seeing all your shows. A devoted fan always. Raye Terry

Jamie I want to congratulate you and Bobby for the way you stood up for your mother. My heat breaks for her. I think there is a witch hunt going on. I saw her on today show this morning and she doesn't look we'll. my mother was diabetic and I know what stress can do to that. I have never had the pleasure of meeting her but can tell she is a good person. Take care of her. It is obviouse you boys are her world. Best wishes for all of you for a good outcome for this.

Have you created a lighter version of your moms Sweet Potato Bake? I love it but I would like a lighter version, less sweet too.

Why is Jamie Dean's kitchen so small?

My husband and I really enjoyed the Five Layer Taco Dip. I love mexican food.They said on HGTV that your wife, Brooke,can eat mexican food 8 days a week. I agree. I made chili on the same day that I made your dip and my husband wanted a scoop of chili on the side. Chili was suppose to be for the next night. Ha!Ha !By itself,the dip was awesome, but we accidently added a scoop of chili....Great Dinner!! Thanks for the recipe. I collect recipes and can not possibly make them all. I am a pharmacist and my husband contributes my excellant cooking to my chemical skills of mixing ingredients. Perhaps you you might introdue me to in the show. If for nothing else, my recipe filing system. Thank you for your fresh outlook. Steve's, my husband,sister lives in Savannah.

LOVE your show Jamie and the way you personalize it by including your family. So often today, we tend to rush through our meals (ex. fast food) and I appreciate your focus on family, taking the time to prepare something special for them...and then sitting down to enjoy the food and company together. The food you prepare is delicious (I have tried some of your recipes) and enjoy watching each episode. Iʻm missing it on the Food Network right now so I hope you are only on hiatus for a short time and preparing more episodes for the near future wink I have been a fan of your moms for years now...she has done a great job with her family...and so are you! Mahalo...

My husband and I LOVE your show! We never miss an episode. smile

I just saw one of your shows, where you are cooking ribs and making twice baked potatoes plus a dessert which I forgot what it was.I have always watched your moms show and have fixed many of her recipes. I have a complaint about your show. Today< your brother Bobby was on the show and you were both drinking beer while on the air. This is not proper to do. You have a gorgeous family. Why does everyone have to drink alcohol on those cooking shows Alcohol is very addictive and has no place on TV shows. If you want to drink do it at a bar or at home. but remember you have a beautiful wife and two lovely children. they should not be exposed to alcohol. What about a cold glass of Ice tea or lemonade. You don't have to have booze to prove your point. I am really sad, that you chose to drink beer on your show.. Cut it out, it does not do a thing for the show. Just keep on cooking good food and have a glass of ice tea. See how much better you will feel. I don't expect to get an answer from you, but I also don't have to watch your show either.

I love the entire Deen family BUT....I find it too hard to watch this (Jamie's) show. The "set" is SO cramped and tiny, I get tense just waiting for something to fall off the counter. Surely this cannot be his REAL kitchen....surely they can afford a better place than this!

By Mary on September 02, 2012


love the show. the recipes are fantastic.. also enjoyed meeting the whole family at the aug 7th book signing!!!... it was well worth the wait, and I love the new cookbook...keep up the great work!!!! keith ward

I enjoy this show and enjoy watching what he makes. I seriously had a good laugh over the "Jack's Favorite things". I try so hard to get my children to eat healthy and to actually eat vegetables and fruits. So when he said, ""You can have your kids eat something over the top healthy that they will love and beg for." Ha ha....he needs to come here and cook! It's not as easy at what he says! I'd love to challenge him to get my kids to eat something that's good for them!
