These are the recipes that I want to make: Snacks and appetizers: cheese straws, sausage hors d'oeuvres, warm feta dip, ranch dressing cheese ball (but it doesn't have a picture!), pimiento cheese spread, his 'n hers deviled eggs Souls and salads: The chicken and dumplings would be good but there was no picture, minty green salad, broccoli salad, chicken salad with fruit--no pic!, Mexican salad, Trisha's pasta salad, Garth's pasta salad. Beef and pork: breakfast sausage casserole Poultry, fish, and pasta: chicken baked in cornflake crumbs, Gwen's fried chicken with milk gravy, chicken pie, chicken broccoli casserole, black bean lasagne (but I'd make it without the beans!), baked macaroni and cheese Sides: cornmeal hushpuppies, sweet potato soufflé Quick breads and muffins: pecan-pie muffins Cakes, pies, and puddings: pecan pie, blackberry cobbler, banana pudding Cookies, candy, and ice cream: chewy chocolate chip cookies, crescent cookies, chocolate fudge Trisha shared that she first moved out of her house she had to ask her mom for every step, like boiling corn. That made me feel better, esp since she said cookbooks assume you know how to do the basics and leave out steps like how to boil a chicken. It was so cute when Garth changed her pasta salad recipe completely and she said "Who knew he was Gartha Stewart?" On a skiing trip to Colorado they had a chef who looked like Tom Cruise, who made them green beans. So when they make them they say here having Tom Cruise and we can imagine the looks on their guests' faces when they say that. What a cute inside family joke. After having just read Ree Drummond's cookbook, where she had each step of the recipe photographed and explained the steps, this stood out to me as being a little incomplete. Many of the recipes didn't even have a picture of the finished product, so you have no idea what it's supposed to look like. I can't fathom why cookbooks do that. I liked the snippet she included about how hush puppies might have gotten their name. A woman was frying them and heard her dog howling, so she gave the dog some and said "Hush, puppy!" Garth looks forward to the cake she always makes him on his birthday, so he doesn't mind turning a year older. The year before this was published, she said he made "some sad statement" like there was only 3 more months until she made him the awesome cake, and it's cute how she ended up making it for him the next day. What a sweet story. I wish there was so much more personal detail about the dishes, more stories and family memories. It felt so lacking on the heels of Ree, who shares so much about her family life. There were sections I didn't really care for as much, like all the veggie sides. I wish there had been more variety. She said herself she doesn't make snacks because they don't get you full, something on those lines, and snacks and appetizers are what I like the most. She makes meals to get you full, so I would have liked for some smaller recipes. The desserts weren't as varied either, pies and pound cake mostly. What I like about it more than Ree's is that she has southern food I'm familiar with; it's not this fancy, city, rich food that's beyond my means and capabilities and tastes. It's just basic southern dishes without a slew of ingredients and all these foreign seasonings. The recipes didn't have many ingredients and most looked doable for me. Some were too southern, like grits and butterbeans. Ree’s book just spoiled me, because she shares so many personal things about her life. I felt like I didn’t get to know Trisha. Just that she had simple, southern cooking growing up and that she takes pride in cooking, that’s about it. I wish each dish had come with more of a story. I did like quite a lot of her recipes so I found my tastes are closer to hers than any other cook I’ve found. This had the recipes, but just lacked more warmth and personal touches. on a side note: I would put my fingertips at the top of the book where my bookmark was and then run them along the length of the top of the pages to the edge and crack the book open that way and I got 3 paper cuts on 2 of my fingers. They hurt! Be careful opening these pages because they are sharp.

    From 2008 Trisha wrote the cookbook with her sister Beth & their mother (who has since passed). Trisha talks a lot about her mother on her Food Network show, so I felt like this was a little bit more of an insight into all the dishes that have been featured over the years. I am excited to try a good number of the recipes contained in the book! Most recipes had an accompanying photograph - which is the way it should be!

    This is my favorite cookbook. I received it as a gift and was immediately impressed by the array of stunning food and personal photography. Most of the recipes are old Southern favorites, and many of them are recipes my family makes already. What I appreciated about the cookbook was that it demystified a lot of the recipes that people in my family chalk up to good cooking genes. Not being born with any, I need to know how much salt goes in boiled peanuts, and I need to know how hot the oil needs This is my favorite cookbook.

The book has a lot of quick tips, substitutions, and alterations that many old fashioned cooks have known for so long that they forget that others might not know. I've had the book for only a couple months, and already I've made almost everything. I highly recommend it. The mandarin orange salad, the chicken/broccoli/rice casserole, and the loaded potato soup are my favorites.

    I love Trisha Yearwood and was interested in seeing what recipes she might have to add to my collection. I found a few more recipes in this book that are simple and taste good. I'm glad she didn't disappoint. I love Trisha Yearwood and was interested in seeing what recipes she might have to add to my collection.

    It was surprising to me how much these recipes resembled the recipes passed down to me from my southern grandmother and great aunts. I'd checked the ebook out of the library and enjoyed reading the recipes and her comments, but I see I don't need to buy this since I cook most of the dishes already. The biggest difference was fried okra. The women in my family all made killer fried okra. When hubby and I married 49 years ago, he declared he didn't like okra.

    I want food from my great grandparents. What did they cook? German? Will find out how they crossed over and when as soon as I find the elusive cousins of my grandfather. This book was not what I wanted. My Mom took us out to eat for some of the recipes. She cooked steaks more than chicken. And collard greens are only for special occasions. Fried okra is just sometimes. Cakes were special occasions. The Colannade (spelling?) was one place to eat.

    Just like my Family cooks! My Great-grandmother was from Georgia, and many recipes are very similar or the same. Trisha and her family did a great job of making these recipes easy with helpful input by one or all in most of them. It's made me realize that I need to write some of my Great-grandmother's recipes down that she taught me and that were passed down through my grandmother. I will so use some of Trisha's family gems in my own kitchen. Just like my Family cooks! My Great-grandmother was from Georgia, and many recipes are very similar or the same.

    My favorite cookbook! I bought this cookbook when it first came out, and I still use it often. She has a meatloaf recipe (very basic), that is the best! My 12 year old son could eat meatloaf everyday now.

    Mostly traditional recipes, similar to my mother and grandmothers. Forgot about some of them, so this was a good reminder to pull out mom's recipes and get to work.

    I always thought that celebrity cookbooks were kind of hokey, especially when written by country singers. But Trisha Yearwood proved me wrong with her excellent family-inspired cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen: Recipes from My Family to Yours. Trisha’s father was a banker and a farmer, and she grew up enjoying a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Georgia Cooking is filled with simple, down-home recipes and plenty of beautiful color photographs.

But Trisha Yearwood proved me wrong with her excellent family-inspired cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen: Recipes from My Family to Yours. Trisha’s father was a banker and a farmer, and she grew up enjoying a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Georgia Cooking is filled with simple, down-home recipes and plenty of beautiful color photographs. Her mother and sister, Gwen Yearwood and Beth Berman, worked with Trisha to compile old family recipes, and they all share anecdotes and tips about the recipes in the book. The twice-divorced Yearwood married Garth Brooks in 2005, and he pops up here and there praising his wife’s cooking. His favorite recipe of Trisha’s? Her German Chocolate Cake. He can’t wait for his birthday to roll around so he can enjoy it, so Trisha surprises him with it throughout the year. Aw. Like another big-boned country gal, Trisha likes her butter. But if you’re worried about calories, just substitute healthier ingredients or make some of the more fattening dishes as a treat. My husband and I have made her delicious Macaroni & Cheese and it’s a keeper. No exotic ingredients or confusing instructions, just tasty country cooking like your mama's.

    I adore southern cooking and this book was so charming filled with family photos and stories as well as tips on the sides of the recipes from the women of the family. My brother and I made the Ribbon Meatloaf tonight for the family and we loved it! I used my own biscuit dough recipe, then added a can of tomato sauce and some seasonings to the meat mixture just for the serving part. It gave us idea's of some other things we could do like cheeseburger ribbon loaf and an egg/breakfast ribbon loaf!

    I like reading cookbooks especially ones that have family stories and family pictures that go along with the recipes and give you a sense of time, history, place, and family traditions. This book does that and in that respect it is charming. It is also a very basic cookbook...very basic. There are recipes for vegetables cooked in butter and seasoned with salt and pepper. That basic. This book would be great for a beginner cook...or a Trisha Yearwood fan. So while there was only about one recipe I like reading cookbooks especially ones that have family stories and family pictures that go along with the recipes and give you a sense of time, history, place, and family traditions.

This book would be great for a beginner cook...or a Trisha Yearwood fan. So while there was only about one recipe in the book that I am wanting to try...the Butterscotch Pie...I did enjoy reading about Trisha's family and their traditions. My Rating: Okay...too basic and a little bland for my cooking tastes.

    This is a wonderful cookbook full of family photos, lovely pictures of the food, and family stories as well as cooking tips. For dinner tonight, I made the Ribbon Meatloaf. I was missing buttermilk so instead of making the homemade bisciuts I cooked some up from frozen (Mary B's the closest I've found to homemade). It was wonderful. I am not a very good cook and it usually takes me a long time to cook a meal but I was able to prepare this in about 30 minutes.

    I really enjoyed this cookbook. The recipes are of the kind I grew up with, the kind my mom, grandmoms, aunts and great-aunts cooked. Along with the great southern recipes are little tidbits about country music sensation Trisha Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks and Trisha's family back in Georgia. I liked this one enough, I may have to buy my own copy, as this one belongs to the library! If you like real Southern dishes, this will be right up your alley. I really enjoyed this cookbook.

    This is a delightful cookbook with lots of comfort food recipes and the stories of where the recipes originated. Many of the recipes have beautiful photographs. Trisha tells how food was always an important element in her family. Both her mother and father liked to cook, so it is easy to see how she developed her interest in cooking. The instructions are clear and concise and there are lots of helpful hints.

    This cookbook was better than most of them because even novices could follow most of the directions. It's good southern and comfort food. Probably not much new, just variations on recipes. I'm copying some of them. As with a previous book, my complaint is with the publisher for doing sidebars in orange and green, hard colors to read on shiny pages.

    This cookbook is awesome because: 1) it has pictures of the food 2) all the food reminds me of stuff my mom and Mamaw make 3) just reading it makes me hungry! and 4) there are little personal stories with each recipe. I can't wait to make the chicken and broccoli casserole, even if my husband doesn't like casseroles. More for me!

    YUMMY Just like my mama made. COOKED to death green beans, chicken pot pie, fried chicken that talks, cream gravy, meatloaf, spaghetti and the sauce made from scratch are just some of the recipes offered that I WILL MAKE SOON. Now that I have skimmed the new book I will be purchasing additional copies for gifts.

    I really liked this cookbook! I like how each and every recipe came from her heart and Trisha included and explained a bunch of family stories. The recipes were delicious (I tried a few),Trisha had clearly explained all of the directions, and she actually let her loved ones write things in her book!

    I haven't tried any of the recipes from the book yet, but they all look fabulous. The photos throughout the book are total eye candy for any foodie. The commentary was great and Trisha captured the true essence of what it means to be a southern cook - love of family and down-home food.

    Nicely done overall but I guess I'm not Southern enough - way too much bacon, cheese, butter and cream in all the recipes. Virtually everything was given this treatment. Who eats like this ?While Trisha Yearwood stays in shape, the photos show that her family members who eat like this - do not.
