Book Description

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.

Recipe from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood: Chicken Pizza

serves 12 to 14

2 13.8-ounce cans premade pizza crust dough
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
1 bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into strips
1 red onion, sliced vertically
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, grilled and diced
6 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Roll the pizza dough out and fit onto two 15-inch pizza pans. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of garlic on each pizza crust, followed by 1/2 cup each of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Cheddar cheese. Scatter half of the bell pepper, sliced onion, chicken, and bacon on top of the cheeses. Sprinkle another 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese over each pizza and drizzle each pizza with 1 tablespoon more of olive oil. Bake the pizzas for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the crusts are lightly browned. Slice each pizza into 8 pieces.

From Publishers Weekly

Singer Trisha Yearwood has found another way to reach her audience—with this follow-up to her successful Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, she serves up more homey, Southern-inflected fare from her country music kitchen. And this newest is every pinch of salt the sequel—from the foreword by her husband, Garth Brooks, and her intimate personal anecdotes to the recipes donated by family and friends (her grandmother's strawberry cake; Brooks's mother's cabbage rolls, her mama's homemade waffles). Yearwood jumps off with some helpful hints, such as the importance of fresh-shredded cheese and how to use scissors to release a stubborn piecrust. The meat of the book is rib-sticking classics for both special occasions and weeknights, like sweet potato pudding, jalapeño hushpuppies, and a Lowcountry boil. Yearwood's ingredients are not for the faint of heart or high of cholesterol (Garth's Breakfast Bowl, for example is a mix of eggs, frozen tater tots, sausage, bacon, and packaged cheese and garlic tortellini). But Yearwood's enthusiasm and warmth come through, particularly in the handwritten notes at the bottom of the pages. Photos. (Apr.)

4.0 out of 5 stars An Actual Buyer & User of this Book! April 15, 2010
By Tabitha
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I too, stumbled upon this book after watching "GMA" and "The View" on a very rare day off. After the airing of GMA, I went to their site and downloaded one of the recipes they posted. After seeing Trisha again on The View, I thought, "Let me go ahead and try this." I am a Southern cook at heart and I while I suppress it most days en lieu of a healthier lifestyle, I was so happy to find a cookbook that was pure and honest and didn't have a "Heart Healthy Alternative" section for every recipe.

This book has great ideas and they are feasible for all skill levels and income levels.

The reason I didn't give it a perfect score is because I would prefer a spiral binding so it could lay flat on a countertop or copy machine (as every dish I've tried brings on requests for the recipe). Wipeable pages would be great to clean up any drips or drops. And while most of the recipes are pretty basic, there are a few that are quite complicated (The Seven Layer Cake calls for 4 pans, a Kitchen-Aide mixer and several bowls. Yikes! That's a once-a-year recipe if I ever saw one!).

The Saltine Crackers thing was a HUGE hit and so was the baked spaghetti and asparagus bundles. Reading Garth's Breakfast Bowl made my chest hurt, but I think I'd like to try that one too!

If you want to be the Talk of the Town at your next potluck or family reunion, get this book. You'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love This Book May 30, 2010
By JoanieT
Unlike most of the reviewers here, I did not see "The View" and have actually never watched it. I volunteer at my local library and see many of the new books that come through. Being a cookbook lover, this one caught my eye as soon as I saw it. As I browsed through the book, I was instantly impressed with the beautiful photos of food and family. As I looked through the recipes, I saw many that I would love to try, as well as some that I would not make (but that is true with most cookbooks.) I love to eat and love to cook, but there are some food products that I do not eat such as pork products and hot or spicy foods. Nonetheless, I was interested in many of the recipes I saw and took the book home. Like some of the other reviewers, I had that "down home, good food and family" feeling as I enjoyed the stories and family memories. There was just enough information about each recipe to be interesting and memorable. I have only had the cookbook for 3 days and have made just one very simple recipe so far; the "Sweet and Saltines" which I plan to bring to a family party. Oh my goodness!! My husband and I ate a few to "sample" and they are addictive!! I did find that the caramel seeped through and coated the bottom of the crackers as well as the top, so I don't know if that is supposed to happen or not. I see no way to avoid that, for the gooey sauce will make its way through the crevices in the crackers while quickly heating up in the oven. I did find that these will melt and get soft if left out of the fridge for too long, so I have stored them in sealed containers in the fridge. After being in the fridge overnight, they were awesome the following day. This week I will be making the "Chicken Poppy Seed Salad" and "Uncle Wilson's Stuffed Peppers. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - buty iti July 26, 2013
By summer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Was actually given this as a gift and read some reviews. One review said something about not being anything special that recipes weren't outstanding (or a similar word). But this is why I love this book. It's like getting recipes from your friends, neighbors, family, etc. It is good basic cooking and you can add your own flair. Other chefs books have such fancy dishes that the majority of everyday (common) people can't afford to make or they are too fancy. But Trisha's book is good old basic recipes that we can make and enjoy and they don't cost an arm and a leg to make. Buy a copy - you won't regret!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let this be the one! October 6, 2013
If you only buy one cookbook, let this be the one. After buying it I delighted in reading and studying it, like I usually do before cooking. I started out with the Red Velvet cake recipe and it is the best recipe for that cake, in my opinion. I have been on a red velvet kick lately and this was my fifth or sixth recipe to try. So moist, delicious and yummy!
Next, it was the baked spaghetti casserole and I swear you will love it even though it is full of simple ingredients. It makes a huge amount, but my family of three ate every single bite and loved it. My husband raves about my meatballs and spaghetti, and he actually said he liked this casserole as much.
Yesterday I made the chicken and wild rice casserole and it is a winner , also. I plan on eating this for a week since it makes a large amount, too. Those are three out of three successes. Most cookbooks I am lucky to find one success. Next on the menu will be either the cabbage or broccoli casserole. You won't waste your money on this cookbook.
