    One thought on “Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood: Stories and Recipes to Share with Family and Friends”

    1. I was hoping that this cookbook would be just as good or better than "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen", but unfortunately for me it was not. It is still a good cookbook, but I didn't get as many dishes that I wanted to make from it, as I did with her first cookbook. I am still a huge fan nonetheless.

    2. I wanted to love this book so badly as I am a huge fan of Trisha's but I didn't get as many recipes out of here as I thought that I would. I was pretty disappointed but I did get a few and am looking forward to other cookbooks that she will put out. But in the meantime I will enjoy the few recipes that I got from this book.

    3. If you're looking for some recipes from your childhood this may be the book for you! I plan on trying some of these, even the asparagus wraps look good!! They are modern, but some are of old, like the teacake one. Thanks Trisha, I may end up liking my kitchen after all.

    4. I looked at the recipes many times. I will try several. I like the mix of down home cooking with some updates and sophistication.

    5. Okay, I am one of those people who like to read cookbooks cover to cover. I like recipes, descriptions, and the accompanying stories. I enjoyed settling down with this cookbook and looking for a little culinary inspiration. While I did enjoy my perusal, I didn't find as much inspiration as I was hoping for. Like Trisha's other cookbooks, it is pretty basic.er than the first onebut still basic. I did collect a couple of cake recipes to try and that is something. My family loves cake and it is alw [...]

    6. Yearwood is my new favorite Food Network star. I happened upon her show tho past week and quickly reserved her book from the library. Had to test drive a few recipes before I purchased the book. Most recipes are simple and the directions are easy to follow. The hot corn dip, crockpot chocolate candy and vegetable pie are over the top good. The photos, stories and sense of family warms my heart (and my tummy).

    7. Very readable cookbook. I enjoyed the stories that she included with each recipe, as well as the little extras added at the end of each recipe also. The recipes were the type of cooking I do and my family does, which I really appreciated. Ms. Yearwood seems so real and down-to-earth with this book, like someone I would want to know. I hope to get this book in a hardback copy so I can try these recipes at my leisure.

    8. Who know Trisha Yearwood could cook too? The cookbook has some good recipes mostly Southern food. The recipes tend to use a lot of butter and oil but I guess that's what makes them sound so tasty. I found several I want to try like the crunchy slaw and coconut cake. I enjoyed reading the comments with each recipe such as where or who it came from.

    9. Exchanged my birthday gift from hubby for this cookbook that I've had my eye on for a while. It satisfies on so many levels. Don't be surprised to find me talking about good food on my Facebook page in the near future. Love these recipes and love the stories of the people behind them. Good down-home cooking with recipes I remember from the past and many new ones.

    10. Great recipes with easy instructions and readily accessible ingredients. While many of the meat/fish recipes weren't for me, I appreciated the number of slow cooker recipes and the Americana style of food and stories. I would have liked more photos, but the quality of everything else merits a high rating.

    11. I love all her wonderful down home recipes. A lot of them from her mom and family members. I have made several and they are really on the money! My family loves these so much, so they are made over and over in our house. I am looking forward to getting her other cookbooks

    12. i was looking to try some of the recipes she does on her cooking show.I borrowed this from the library and loved it.The recipes are very simple and there are loads of tips throughout the book to help you along.

    13. Delicious comfort food from one of my favorite country artists. My friends and I were fortunate to meet Trisha Yearwood at the signing for this book. She was warm, genuine and so very nice. I know we won't get skinny on this, but it is yummy!

    14. Loved all the recipes I have tried out of this book so far. They are mostly all very simple and delicious. Only issue I've had with the book is it does not give a estimate on cooking/preparation times. While trying to take care of my 3 month old prep times are important. Great cookbook.

    15. Great pictures - I always love when every recipe has a picture to go along with it. I had no idea that Trisha Yearwood could cook. I made several copies of the recipes, and am excited to try them. I would love to own this book. Great cookbook!!!

    16. Most of the stuff in this cookbook looks REALLY GOOD. I hate to rate it without having tried a recipe yet, but it's rare that I find a cookbook with so many things I would actually like to make in it.

    17. Here's the funny thing. I am not familiar w her music but I do enjoy her recipes. Her recipes are country cooking w just a little twist. Ex: pepperoni in her lasagna, & tortellini in her breakfast bowl. Fun & anecdotal.

    18. Enjoyable reading the little blurbs about family & history of the recipes! Recipes are interesting, mostly yummy looking! Can't wait to try a few.

    19. Trisha definitely knows how to create great southern meals. Your family will love you forever if you bring her hot corn dip to your next family get-together. Believe me!

    20. I loved looking through this book to see what yummy stuff I get to try to make next. I am going to try and get the first cook book and get ready to have some fun!

    21. Lots of down-home recipes that are easy to make and sure to please. I also appreciate the gorgeous pictures.

    22. AwesomeI didn't know Trisha could cook, but this book has some yummy recipes in it! I know I'll be trying some of them soon.

    23. Another round of down home cooking from one of my favorite singers! Not quite as many in this one that I couldn't wait to try, but still a winning entry on my cookbook shelf!

    24. This was a fun book. It's filled with stories about her family as they pertain to the recipe. There are some definite things we're going to try.
