Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Country music star and bestselling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood, host of Food Network's "Trisha's 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 there's 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 she's a big believer that cooking for someone else is an act of love. From breakfasts in bed to hearty casseroles and festive holiday meals, Trisha's delicious recipes are dedicated to her loved ones, including her husband Garth Brooks (who's 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 they've had a hand in preparing a meal. These recipes all come with memories attached--of potlucks with good friends, church suppers, family fish fries, and beach picnics, Mother's 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 one--whether a main dish, a tasty side, or a decadent dessert--comes with a heartwarming story from Trisha's life that may remind you of some of your own favorite family foods, or inspire you to create new traditions.
You don't have to be a southerner to enjoy Yearwood family specialties such as:
- Hot Corn Dip
- Cornbread Salad with French Dressing
- Baked Bean Casserole
- Jambalaya
- Pumpkin Roll
- 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 Trisha's home, this soulful and sincere testament to a southern life well-lived will delight both country music fans and home cooks everywhere.

About the author

Biography of Yearwood, Trisha

Born in 1964 in the small farming town of Monticello, Georgia, Trisha Yearwood became one of the most popular female country singers beginning in the 1990's. She studied music business at Nashville's Belmont College and interned at MTM Records before being hired as a backup vocalist by country star Garth Brooks. Yearwood was the first female country singer to sell a million copies of a debut album. She won Female Vocalist of the Year recognition from the Academy of Country Music in 1997 and 1998. Yearwood has also won three Grammy awards and had a recurring acting role on the television show "JAG".


Review by Library Journal (2010-02-15)

After her successful first cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, country music star Yearwood is back. Writing with her mother and sister, she provides personal anecdotes and recipes for Southern favorites such as catfish and hush puppies. Lots of family pictures will entice readers. This is highly recommended for country music fans and Southern cooks.
