Winner, winner squirrel dinner?
Kay Robertson, the matriarch of "Duck Dynasty," hit the road Tuesday to promote her cookbook "Miss Kay: Duck Commander Kitchen."
And, yes, that includes her infamous Boiled Squirrel and Dumplings dish — though Miss Kay has conceded you could substitute chicken in if you're not comfortable eating backyard rodents.
The cookbook also includes more familiar comfort food faves her family enjoys like Willie's Famous Chicken Strips, Jase's Favorite Sweet Potato Pie, Phil's Crawfish Fettucine, and Papaw Phil's Homemade Ice Cream.

Gabrielle "Gabby" Douglas knows something about the dedication, training, and technique it takes to sweep a competition. The girl did win two gold medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Now, it was her turn to sit at the judges' table.
On Tuesday night, Douglas served as a guest judge on Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" for the show's second-to-last episode (and final competition) before the Season 10 winners are announced next week.
From the rehearsal studios and backstage to the brightly lit set, she also found the time to capture some behind-the-scenes snapshots for a Yahoo TV Instagram takeover.
And while the Olympian has said she won't be joining the dance competition next season, she's uniquely qualified to be dishing out scores.
Douglas may have quipped that she's a tough judge, but she knows exactly what the final four dancers are up against. She's even got the 180 kick to prove it — though she may have to give up the pepperoni pizza habit once she starts training for 2016.

"Sleepy Hollow" star Tom Mison, 30, is playing a fish out of water in Fox's new series as a modern-day Ichabod Crane who's been revived to fight crime (and a certain headless horseman — you know the drill) after being frozen for 250 years.
"Ichabod is the lens through whom we can view our world," explained executive producer Alex Kurtzman. "He's put to sleep before the country came together. He died fighting for our ideals, and when he is awakened, the questions are, 'How are they fulfilling the promise [of the revolution], and how are they betraying them?'"
Diego Klattenhoff Pulls Triple Duty: 'The Blacklist' G-Man, 'Homeland' Marine, and Yahoo! TV Instagrammer
Diego Klattenhoff is best known for his role as Brody's marine buddy Mike Faber on "Homeland." But he'll find a whole new way to serve his country this fall: playing FBI agent Donald Ressler on NBC's "The Blacklist."
In fact, he'll be pulling double duty as a G-man in September, balancing roles as a recurring character on Showtime while working a full schedule on "The Blacklist," one of the fall's most buzzed-about new dramas, which premieres Sept. 23 at 10 PM.
"The Blacklist" also stars James Spader as criminal mastermind Raymond "Red" Reddington, who surrenders to the FBI and offers up his bad-guy Rolodex on the mysterious condition that he work only with newbie agent Elizabeth Keen (played by Megan Boone). Klattenhoff plays her partner.
It's a good thing Anson Mount didn't shave or he might have been completely unrecognizable out of costume.
It's a long way — and almost 150 years — from the Calgary set where Mount tapes AMC's period drama "Hell on Wheels" to Los Angeles's Beverly Hilton Hotel. Trading his horse and pocket watch for a cell phone and aviator shades gave the actor a modern-day makeover as he promoted the show's third season to TV journalists at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
The Western drama, featuring Mount's badass former confederate soldier turned transcontinental railroad engineer Cullen Bohannan, kicks off with a 2-hour premiere on August 10 at 9 PM. It's a new night and focus for the show, which is moving away from revenge as Cullen's main motivator. The series' new showrunner Joe Wirth explained, "We shifted gears ... shifting more into an area of redemption, or as we call it, 'reconstruction'. It's opened the show, and made the characters more embraceable."
Charisma Carpenter is best known for her role as Cordelia Chase on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spinoff, "Angel." But the actress has endured her own real-life drama.
In 1991, a then 22-year-old Carpenter and two friends were swimming at San Diego's Torrey Pines State Beach when they were violently attacked by an armed, rogue police officer. Her two friends were both shot by the attacker and seriously wounded. The police officer was later sentenced to 56 years in prison for the attacks in addition to a series of rapes and robberies.
Now, the actress is hosting a new series for Investigation Discovery. "Surviving Evil," which premieres on Aug. 28, features the stories of victims who fought back against their attackers and, against all odds, survived.
The circumstances around today were considerably happier, as Carpenter introduced the show at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills and shared her story with us backstage. And while she's talked about the attack before, this raises the level of exposure to a new level.
Take a look at this video of Carpenter at the TCA press tour:
Survey says "Family Feud" is about to get more than it bargained for when the cast of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" invades the set.
Alana Thompson (a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo Child), Mama June, Sugar Bear, Chickadee, Chubbs, and Pumpkin were all on hand at the Atlanta Civic Center today for a very special taping of the long-running game show. The special "Family Feud" episode (no air date has been revealed but the upcoming season premieres Sept. 16) pitted the Thompson family of McIntyre, Georgia versus the "Cake Boss" famiglia of Hoboken, New Jersey.
The TLC showdown was for a good cause: June Shannon and her fam were playing today to benefit GLAAD. The show was honored by GLAAD earlier this year for their support of Alana's "Uncle Poodle" aka Lee Thompson.

At 91, Betty White is old enough to be your grandmother (OK, possibly your great-grandmother). So what's the secret to her longevity?
It's probably not her daily diet.
The "Hot in Cleveland" star noshes on a hot dog and french fries for lunch. Every day. And that's not her only indulgence; Betty snacks on Starbucks blueberry muffins when she arrives at work and makes a point of keeping her dressing room stocked with Red Vines.
