Trisha Yearwood's second cookbook, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, is now in stores as the follow-up to her bestselling 2008 offering, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen. Since she used basically all of her immediate family's recipes in the first cookbook, Trisha decided to ask her extended friends and family for their best dishes. There were quite a few dishes Trisha had tasted before but didn't have the recipe to make. A family reunion provided the perfect opportunity for Trisha to track down those recipes. She tells us, "We were able to come up with what I felt like could stand beside the first book. I really wanted it to be as good as the first one."
Trisha's famous husband Garth Brooks also contributed a dish in addition to writing the book's foreword. He got very creative in the kitchen one day and came up with his own signature breakfast bowl, which is basically eggs, hash browns, sausage, bacon, butter, cheddar cheese and tortellini all layered together in a bowl. "I'm more likely to follow the recipe," admits Trisha. "He's more likely to experiment, and he just kind of said, 'What if I did this?'" Garth's breakfast bowl has become a favorite for Trisha's mom and family when they visit her out in Oklahoma.
To promote the new cookbook, Trisha has made appearances on The Paula Deen Show, Rachael Ray and Good Morning America, showing everyone how to make her new dishes. So, would Trisha ever consider hosting a food show of her own? She tells us that's not very likely. "I get nervous when I do these food demonstrations," Trisha says. "It's just not natural for me, and I'm not sure if it would be fun if I had to come up with something new every day."
Trisha's happy with her second career as a cookbook author at this point. She's also planning to get back into the studio to record a new album once the promotion for Home Cooking slows down.
