Loaded with great recipes, but duplicated from another cookbook of hers. Not a whole lot of new ones which I found disappointing. Luckily, I grabbed it on sale since I don't have the other book anymore.

I always thought that celebrity cookbooks were kind of hokey, especially when written by country singers. But Trisha Yearwood proved me wrong with her excellent family-inspired cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen: Recipes from My Family to Yours.

Trisha’s father was a banker and a farmer, and she grew up enjoying a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Georgia Cooking is filled with simple, down-home recipes and plenty of beautiful color photographs. Her mother and sister, Gwen Year

Recommends it for: beginning to intermediate Southern cooks
Recommended to Deidre by: my grandmother
This is my favorite cookbook. I received it as a gift and was immediately impressed by the array of stunning food and personal photography. Most of the recipes are old Southern favorites, and many of them are recipes my family makes already. What I appreciated about the cookbook was that it demystified a lot of the recipes that people in my family chalk up to good cooking genes. Not being born with any, I need to know how much salt goes in boiled peanuts, and I need to know how hot the oil needs ...more

Trisha Yearwood is one of my very favorite entertainers. Such an appealing personality, and a voice that just won't quit! This book is written in a warm, personal style, and it offers great recipes and cooking advice and an up-close look at this talented and likeable country music superstar. Family, friends, food, and an interesting life all come together for a very satisfying read. The recipes range from familiar favorites like Meatloaf, Banana Pudding, Blackberry Cobbler, and Fried Chicken ...more

I like reading cookbooks especially ones that have family stories and family pictures that go along with the recipes and give you a sense of time, history, place, and family traditions. This book does that and in that respect it is charming. It is also a very basic cookbook...very basic. There are recipes for vegetables cooked in butter and seasoned with salt and pepper. That basic. This book would be great for a beginner cook...or a Trisha Yearwood fan. So while there was only about one recipe ...more

I adore southern cooking and this book was so charming filled with family photos and stories as well as tips on the sides of the recipes from the women of the family. My brother and I made the Ribbon Meatloaf tonight for the family and we loved it! I used my own biscuit dough recipe, then added a can of tomato sauce and some seasonings to the meat mixture just for the serving part. It gave us idea's of some other things we could do like cheeseburger ribbon loaf and an egg/breakfast ribbon loaf! ...more

I enjoy cooking and reading cookbooks and I enjoyed this cookbook for several reasons. First, I found it interesting because I have lived in both Georgia and Oklahoma. I also enjoyed the personal stories Trisha shared about her family members, friends and neighbors and the important role food played in those relationships. I enjoyed the writing style, the photos, and I found the "down home" recipes to be a refreshing alternative to the high society, Food & Wine type cookbooks that seem to be ...more

This is a wonderful cookbook full of family photos, lovely pictures of the food, and family stories as well as cooking tips. For dinner tonight, I made the Ribbon Meatloaf. I was missing buttermilk so instead of making the homemade bisciuts I cooked some up from frozen (Mary B's the closest I've found to homemade). It was wonderful. I am not a very good cook and it usually takes me a long time to cook a meal but I was able to prepare this in about 30 minutes. Anyone who likes to browse cookbooks ...more

Being from the south, I can appreciate a lot of the reasoning behind the recipes in this book. Most are southern favorites or classics. However, out of all of the recipes in the book, there are only a handful of recipes I want to recreate for myself. I'm not sure if it's because I can already make the majority of the recipes without a recipe, but that's a possibility. Mostly I bought the book because I like Trisha Yearwood, and the stories and photographs included with the recipes are a nice, ho ...more

This is a delightful cookbook with lots of comfort food recipes and the stories of where the recipes originated. Many of the recipes have beautiful photographs. Trisha tells how food was always an important element in her family. Both her mother and father liked to cook, so it is easy to see how she developed her interest in cooking. The instructions are clear and concise and there are lots of helpful hints.
Jun 05, 2013 BJ rated it it was amazing
I really enjoyed this cookbook. The recipes are of the kind I grew up with, the kind my mom, grandmoms, aunts and great-aunts cooked. Along with the great southern recipes are little tidbits about country music sensation Trisha Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks and Trisha's family back in Georgia. I liked this one enough, I may have to buy my own copy, as this one belongs to the library! If you like real Southern dishes, this will be right up your alley.
Aug 08, 2008 Lesa rated it really liked it
This cookbook was better than most of them because even novices could follow most of the directions. It's good southern and comfort food. Probably not much new, just variations on recipes. I'm copying some of them.

As with a previous book, my complaint is with the publisher for doing sidebars in orange and green, hard colors to read on shiny pages.

This cookbook is awesome because: 1) it has pictures of the food 2) all the food reminds me of stuff my mom and Mamaw make 3) just reading it makes me hungry! and 4) there are little personal stories with each recipe. I can't wait to make the chicken and broccoli casserole, even if my husband doesn't like casseroles. More for me!
Aug 15, 2016 Michaela rated it it was amazing
I really liked this cookbook! I like how each and every recipe came from her heart and Trisha included and explained a bunch of family stories. The recipes were delicious (I tried a few),Trisha had clearly explained all of the directions, and she actually let her loved ones write things in her book!

Just like my mama made. COOKED to death green beans, chicken pot pie, fried chicken that talks, cream gravy, meatloaf, spaghetti and the sauce made from scratch are just some of the recipes offered that I WILL MAKE SOON. Now that I have skimmed the new book I will be purchasing additional copies for gifts.

I haven't tried any of the recipes from the book yet, but they all look fabulous. The photos throughout the book are total eye candy for any foodie. The commentary was great and Trisha captured the true essence of what it means to be a southern cook - love of family and down-home food.

I love to 'read' cookbooks. They inspire me and sometimes I actually cook from them. ;)
But this book is a true joy. I enjoyed the stories, the photos, and even the recipes.
I'm ready for her to come out with another.
Sep 03, 2014 Marleene rated it it was ok
Nicely done overall but I guess I'm not Southern enough - way too much bacon, cheese, butter and cream in all the recipes. Virtually everything was given this treatment. Who eats like this ?While Trisha Yearwood stays in shape, the photos show that her family members who eat like this - do not.

Love this cookbook.

I have collected cookbooks for my whole married life (44 years this August). I bought this from Amazon and read through today. Great recipes that I'll be trying as soon as I can pick out just which ones

I enjoy watching the author's cooking show on the Food Network, and her personality shines through in this book just as clearly.

A number of the recipes felt very familiar, though; and that was a bit disappointing.

I borrowed this book from the library and really enjoyed it.I watch her show on the Food Network and a majority of the recipes in the book are ones I've seen her make on the show.I love to cook and try new recipes.I appreciated the tips through the book that go with each recipe.

I recognize many of these recipes. Although my Georgia family may have some variations. Many of these recipes remind me of the food that would be put out on tables at a down home family reunion. Memories. Comfort.

GEORGIA COOKING IN AN OKLAHOMA KITCHEN is a cookbook by Trisha Yearwood and family. The recipes are simple, easy to read and beautifully illustrated. I plan on trying several of the featured recipes. This is a welcome addition to my cookbook collection!

So far, I've loved all the recipes I've tried. I don't know anything about Yearwood's music, but her recipes are fabulous.
