Country music star and bestselling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood, host of Food Networkâs Trishaâs Southern Kitchen, is back with an encore of recipes that once again share her family traditions and warm home-grown cooking style.
In her debut cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, Trisha proved that thereâs much more to her than an award-winning country music career, as she welcomed us into her kitchen and served up a feast of flavorful meals and heartwarming personal anecdotes. Now, in Cooking for Family and Friends, Trisha opens her life and her kitchen once more with a trove of recipes from a lifetime of potlucks and colorful gatherings.
Trisha has that southern hospitality gene and sheâs a big believer that cooking for someone else is an act of love. From breakfasts in bed to hearty casseroles and festive holiday meals, Trishaâs delicious recipes are dedicated to her loved ones, including her husband Garth Brooks (whoâs her number one cooking fan and the contributor of a few knockout recipes of his own).
Trisha knows how good it feels to bring something to the table. It brings everyone closer together if theyâve had a hand in preparing a meal. These recipes all come with memories attachedâof potlucks with good friends, church suppers, family fish fries, and beach picnics, Motherâs Day, and Christmas gatherings. Many are handed down from her mother, her aunts and cousins, or longtime friends, while others are her own contemporary improvisations on classic southern fare. Each oneâwhether a main dish, a tasty side, or a decadent dessertâcomes with a heartwarming story from Trishaâs life that may remind you of some of your own favorite family foods, or inspire you to create new traditions.
You donât have to be a southerner to enjoy Yearwood family specialties such as:
â¢ Hot Corn Dip
â¢ Cornbread Salad with French Dressing
â¢ Baked Bean Casserole
â¢ Pumpkin Roll
â¢ Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake
Plus, Trisha (and her sister and mother) offer up loads of practical advice, on everything from easily icing a cake to cutting a slice of pie, time-saving tips; and ingredient substitutions. With full-color photographs taken at Trishaâs home, this soulful and sincere testament to a southern life well-lived will delight both country music fans and home cooks everywhere.
