Trisha's Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life by Trisha Yearwood & Beth Yearwood Bernard, Garth Brooks

Book Description:  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!

My Thoughts: I'm not a country music fan.  But I do like a good cookbook.  And trisha's table, featuring Trisha Yearwood who also happens to be married to Garth Brooks, is a wonderful mouth watering cookbook.
Southern comfort food at its best.  Now I'm from the South and a southern cook is always looking for a great dish to serve her family and friends.
But what I like most about this cookbook are the low calorie, not.so.heavy on the mayo recipes.  And the beautiful photos!
I made Billie's Houdini Chicken Salad not just because it's low calorie but because we love chicken salad.  We eat chicken salad by itself, we eat on bread-to make a sandwich, we eat on a hoagie roll, we eat on Hawaiian bread....well, you get the idea we eat chicken salad!
This weekend I'm going to make the Chicken Tortilla Casserole.  And I'd may add the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, too.  And I made the White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies...Oh!My!Word!!! they are SO Good!
There are sooooo many wonderful recipes to try.
As we all try to eat healthier and a little lighter I think this recipe book will help with those goals.
This hardback book also makes a GREAT gift!
