Late last year, chef Keith Guehrke appeared on a number of morning talk shows across the midwest.

He described himself as an "unorthodox, self-taught" guru in the kitchen who dropped such nuggets of knowledge on various hosts as:

"There's a statistic that around the holidays, especially between Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's one of the highest suicide rates and I think part of that is the stress of, What are you going to do with these leftovers?"

Seems a bit far-fetched, doesn't it?

That's because chef Keith Guehrke doesn't exist.

It's come out that the man who convinced anchors to try such concoctions as gravy ice cream and/or pumpkin pie smoothies was Nick Prueher, the founder of a site called the Found Footage Festival.

In a new People cover story, Paula Deen says she learned a lot from last year's scandal, and empathizes with others caught up in similar ordeals.

At the same time, she can't help but wonder if she got a raw deal.

Paula Deen People Cover

In 2013, the Food Network dropped the celebrity chef after she admitted in a lawsuit deposition that she used a racial slur a "very long time ago."

The TV star subsequently lost a number of endorsement deals. Though Paula Deen apologized on Today, the backlash made it difficult for her.

In general. To do anything.

"When I woke up each morning, it was like my world was crashing down again," the Georgia native, 67, recalls. "Some people said I never apologized."

Oops! Nestle's bad!

The company recalled  its "Philly Steak and Cheese" and "Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese" Hot Pockets this week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture deemed the products unfit for human consumption.

USDA regulators said the company processed "diseased and unsound animals" without a full federal inspection.

In a press release, Nestle said these Hot Pockets were distributed nationwide and that "a small quantity of meat" from Rancho Feeding Corp. - which recalled 8.7 million pounds of bad beef last week - is to blame.

Kraft macaroni and cheese, Vanilla Ice and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. If that's not a recipe for a great TV ad, we don't know what is.

If it wasn't obvious, all three of those things have joined forces for a commercial promoting Kraft's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mac and cheese shapes.

The spot finds the rapper stocking shelves (probably not too big a stretch these days) and reviving his "Ninja Rap" from the 1991 sequel to TMNT.

The song, from the ever-so-brief peak of Ice's popularity, features the the familiar refrain, "Go Ninja Go!" and memorably showcased him in a cameo.

Back to the ad, it's as random and awkward as it sounds, but it owns that fact.

Paula Deen is ready to make a comeback, and in a big, big way.

Her new company, Paula Deen Ventures, received an investment between $75 million and $100 million from Najafi Cos., according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Arizona-based private-equity company who invested in Paula is led by Jahm Najafi, who owns the Book-of-the-Month Club and BMG Music Service.

It hopes to help the Southern chef establish new deals and break away from her old business model, which was based on licensing her celebrity image to others.

The chief executive of Deen Ventures, Steven Nanula, said the company is in talks with possible partners, including in the TV space ... just not Food Network.

Deen was fired by the Food Network and many of her other sponsors last year after she admitted to using a racial slur during a deposition she gave for a lawsuit.

Administrators at a Northern California private school are apologizing after their Black History Month school lunch menu caused a great deal of controversy.

On the menu were fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon ... seriously.

Somehow, the above items were what they came up with.

Officials held an assembly on campus to discuss the issue and sent an apology letter to parents after the lunch controversy blew up and sparked outcry.

"I'd like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members," Principal Nancy Libby said in the letter.
