Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood Cookbook Review


Yes. If you read this website or my other website at Deep South Dish on any kind of regular basis, you already know that I am a sucker for books, especially new cookbooks, and in particular new southern cookbooks.  Well... my most recent cookbook purchase is Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood and I love, love, love this cookbook.

I first made the Hot Corn Dip, which is a definite winner and great for when you have friends over, followed closely by her Baked Spaghetti dish, which is fit for a crowd and simply marvelous.  You will want to hang on to that recipe for your next potluck or church supper for sure - it is absolutely delicious. The Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is fantastic too, and so is the Chicken Broccoli Casserole. For a list of all the recipes that I've cooked from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, pop over to Deep South Dish and view them all!

This cookbook is filled with down home country cooking the south is known for.  Nothing low fat here, so you'll have to look elsewhere for those kinds of recipes.  Garth Brooks - her number one cooking fan and husband in case you didn't know - actually contributed a few recipes to this cookbook, including his favorite Breakfast Bowl that sounds amazing. Even at 4 servings, it's calorie laden - containing 8 eggs,  hash browns, cheese & garlic tortellini, a pound of bacon, a pound of sausage, and plenty of cheese - but is intriguing enough that I have definite plans to try it.  I mean c'mon... just look at that cheesy, gooey, carb loaded goodness, would ya?!

These are the best of the best of favorite southern family recipes that if you are the kind of person who loves to treat yourself to the occasional, full fledged southern treats between your more "reasonable" meal plans, you will simply love.

Some of the recipes you'll find in Trisha Yearwood's newest Home Cooking cookbook include:

Watermelon Salsa
Country Quiche
Sour Cream Cornbread
Six-Week Pickles
Cornbread Salad
Shamrock Salad
Warren's Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bits
Sweet Potato Pudding
Uncle Wilson's Stuffed Bell Peppers
Colleen's Cabbage Rolls
Cordelia's Roast Beef
Linda's Chicken and Dressing
Okra and Tomatoes
Asparagus Bacon Wrapped Bundles
Monkey Bread Muffins
Key Lime Cake
Chocolate Cake with Divinity Icing
Magic Lemon Meringue Pie
Bell London's Pecan Tassies

and much more!

I have really enjoyed owning Trisha's first cookbook Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen - I recently posted her Warm Feta and Artichoke Dip from that first cookbook over at Deep South Dish, that is a fantastic movie night dip - great for this weekend, y'all! If you love Spinach & Artichoke Dip, I have a feeling that you will love that one too because it's a great combination of flavors.  I also have near future plans for her Chicken Broccoli Casserole, her Stuffed Pork Chops, her Daddy's Barbecued Chicken and her Pecan Pie Muffins from the first cookbook, and you'll find all of those and more in that cookbook Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen.

As good as the first cookbook was though, I think that I love Home Cooking even more.

Both cookbooks are filled with family pictures and stories, beautiful photography and just incredible recipes that you will love.  Click on any link to buy either one of them {or if you're as bad as me...both of them}, through my Deep South Dish Store {purchases through those links help support my cookbook addiction my websites, so I can continue to share them with you}, or just pick her new one up from your local bookstore if you prefer, but pick it up and get cookin' some great southern meals that your family is certain to love!

Happy Eatin' Y'all!!



  1. Monkey bread muffins sound good!

  2. I also have her cookbook and have tried some of her recipes. Simple is best sometimes, that is what she does. After reading her book, I'm seriously thinking of writing a cookbook of my own! Cooking is definitely my passion for living!

  3. mrsslxmas, I so agree - simplicity mixed in with fresh homemade & a few flavorful herbs and spices results in some great recipes! I love to cook also (I have a separate food blog), and have had quite a few requests for a cookbook, but to be honest the whole self publishing venture frightens me to death. So much work.
