After compiling her first cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, Trisha Yearwood found 60 or 70 recipes on the chopping block. However, she wasn’t sure those leftovers would ever end up in print since she says it takes about a year to put a cookbook together. To help her make the decision, she enlisted family members to bring their favorite dishes to a reunion — along with the recipe. Then she divided the stack of recipes between herself, her sister and their mother, plucking the best ones. The result is Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood, a new book being served in April 2010.
Calling from the Oklahoma home she shares with husband Garth Brooks, she spent about half of our conversation describing her new dishes, such as asparagus wrapped in bacon, Crock-Pot macaroni and cheese, sweet potato pudding, Key lime cake (her new favorite), ambrosia with apples (contributed by family friend, the late Betty Maxwell), cornbread salad with homemade French dressing and chunky, meaty cowboy lasagna.
After wiping away the drool, we were able to talk about cooking meals for her friends, sharing (or not sharing) famous recipes and holding out for the best brownies.
