Trisha Yearwood has always been really interesting to me. I've admired her as a singer for years and periodically watch Trisha's Southern Kitchen on the Food Network, so I was excited to check out this cookbook. I surprised myself however, when I literally read it from cover to cover. In one sitting.
Broken into categories of: Breakfast, Snacks & Appetizers, Soups & Salads, Beef & Pork, Chicken, Turkey, & Fish, Pasta, Sides, Cakes, Cupcakes, & Pies, and Cookies, Brownies, Bars, & more. She offers tips throughout including ways to convert tools, oven vs. microwave, quick tricks, and even how to make cashew cream! There were at least 25 recipes I am excited to try immediately (and that is unusual for me so you can imagine my enthusiasm).
I particularly enjoyed that this is real food for anyone, truly - and her simple directions imply that anyone could prepare these dishes successfully. She also includes fun family stories and pictures, and is very transparent about her feelings about food. There are also conversion suggestions for improved health. :)
It is easy to say that I recommend this book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
