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".
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.
There's much more to Trisha Yearwood than an award-winning country music career--she's also a passionate Southerner who has won the hearts of Food Network fans with her cooking show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen.
In her New York Times bestseller, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, Trisha invites you into her kitchen for a feast of flavorful meals and heartwarming personal anecdotes. She shares a trove of recipes from a lifetime of colorful gatherings.
Trisha has that southern hospitality gene and when she cooks for others, it's an act of love. From breakfasts in bed like Garth's Breakfast Bowl that she makes for her husband to a hearty Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole for potlucks or Grandma Yearwood's Coconut Cake for the end of a festive meal, her delicious recipes are dedicated to her loved ones. Alongside are stories of meals at home, church suppers, fish fries, beach picnics, and holiday gatherings. Each dish--whether a main, side, or decadent dessert--may remind you of your own favorite family foods or inspire you to create new traditions. Plus, Trisha offers loads of practical advice on everything from how to easily ice a cake to how to expertly cut a slice of pie, and includes time-saving tips and ingredient substitutions.
