In a recent interview with Today, Award winning country music icon Trisha Yearwood dished out some cooking tips and variety of her cooking recipes that make us wonder how we ever lived without them!
She jumps right into this exclusive by joking, “I love food SO much, I think food is an issue for me!” Oh, Trisha! Who doesn’t? We can already tell we would get along with Yearwood just fine!
Warning: Do not continue to read this article if you are making the admirable attempt to change your eating habits and pursue a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Although Yearwood does suggest some healthier ingredient alternatives, there is nothing like the real deal and we are here to ensure you that you will be flooring it to the grocery store faster than you can say “low fat”! And while Yearwood also does mention the importance of portion control, these delicious meals make that concept unrealistic.
She continues to make our mouths water by indulging into her favorite and most popular recipe’s, including her very tempting Crock-Pot mac and cheese. “It’s comfort food that’s good for Super Bowl parties and easy to make,” Yearwood tells Today. Amen, girlfriend! If theres one thing we love more than food, it’s comfort, making this “comfort food” logic a brilliant idea! Does anyone else sense a Nobel Peace Prize for this southern belle?
When asked about any techniques or tricks that she has acquired along the way, Yearwood humbly assures us that she is merely a home cook and that she credits her talented culinary entourage for their laborious work! “I’ve learned SO much from them it’s hard to pick something out. Thanks to them I have finally mastered how to properly chop an onion,” she gleams.
While we admire Yearwood’s acquired onion cutting skills, as we all know that can be quite an emotional endeavor, we eagerly wait for any intel on country cowboy Garth Brooks’ favorite dish and if her hopes of the hubby cooking her a decent meal have remained just “unanswered prayer” like every other woman’s. However, we are not disappointed when Yearwood shares that the “Rodeo” singer has been a huge fan of her Fettuccine Alfredo from day one and does in fact cook her a personalized meal on occasion. Although she jokes that his serving sizes for her are double what they realistically should be, Yearwood raves about her husband’s attempt to make breakfast into dinner with his breakfast themed dinner bowls. Between comfort food and breakfast for dinner, we cannot get over this very innovative family!
Yearwood’s cooking show “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen” airs on the Food Network Saturdays at 10:30 am. We know we’ll be tuned in!
Until then, you can enjoy this fun clip of the husband and wife mixing it up in the kitchen!
