 Trisha's Table:
My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life
by Trisha Yearwood & Beth Yearwood Bernard
5+ Stars!


 ABOUT THE BOOK -
Country music superstar, Food Network standout, and bestselling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood shows how delicious foods and wholesome dishes are part of the same balanced lifestyle. 

Trisha Yearwood is as much a force in the kitchen as she is on stage. But after years of enjoying decadent Southern comfort food, her culinary philosophy is evolving. As Trisha says, “I have adopted an 80/20 rule: 80 percent of the time I make good choices; 20 percent of the time I let myself splurge a little.”

Whether surprisingly virtuous or just a little bit sinful, the recipes in Trisha’s Table all bring that unmistakable authenticity you’ve come to love from Trisha. You’ll find brand-new dishes emblematic of the variety and balance Trisha champions. They skimp on anything but flavor, including dairy-free Angel Hair Pasta with Avocado Pesto, low-calorie Billie’s Houdini Chicken Salad, vegetarian Smashed Sweet Pea Burgers, and tasty, high-protein Edamame Parmesan, alongside too-good-to-give-up family favorites, such as Slow Cooker Georgia Pulled-Pork Barbecue, Chicken Tortilla Casserole, Snappy Pear-Cranberry Crumble, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls.

Trisha wants to feed her loved ones—and yours, too—food that tastes good and food that’s good for you. So pull up a seat at Trisha’s Table and dig in!

In 2005, Trisha married superstar Garth Brooks, and they currently reside in Oklahoma.

MY THOUGHTS -
This is my third Trisha Yearwood cookbook, I now own them all. Of all my cookbooks (and I have a lot) these are my favorites! These are the ones I am always turning to. But I have to say I think she has outdone herself - I think this is the best one yet!  I am very excited to try some of these recipes, they all look so good.

There are a lot of vegetarian type recipes (there are even a few tofu recipes in here) which I personally think is great. Her other cookbooks were more southern. For you meat-eaters, there is a section on pork and beef. Oh my gosh, just page after page of delicious sounding and looking recipes (thanks to the many beautiful color pictures).

Here are a few of my favorites that I am definitely going to try -
Breakfast burritos
Spinach frittata
Quinoa burger with yogurt sauce
Black bean chili and rice
Angel hair pasta with avocado pesto
Tofu ricotta lasagna
Julie's pad thai
Zucchini cakes with herbed sour cream
and for dessert - how about Key lime cheesecake with raspberry sauce




And that's just skimming the surface. There are so many good recipes in here. This is going to be my new favorite cookbook. It's like Trisha wrote this just for me. Thanks Trisha!

  3. Not sure when this book came out, but I find it interesting that Garth Brooks is also getting busy renewing his singing career. I guess he and Trisha have raised their brood, and it's time for them to step out again.
