Trisha Yearwood in the Kitchen: Julia Child, Move Over

When he sits down to dinner, Garth Brooks knows what he likes. "The joke in our house is, 'Add tortellini to it,' " his country-star wife, Trisha Yearwood, tells PEOPLE Country in it May issue. "That's Garth's solution to everything."

Still, that's not necessarily Yearwood's. For the Nashville favorite, mother knew best.

"When I think of recipes, I think of church napkins and notebook paper. I have a lot of mom's handwritten recipes. I cherish those." says Yearwood, who has re-teamed with her sister Beth to dish up their second cookbook, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood.

As icing on the cake, starting with the June 18 issue, Trisha is also launching a new column for PEOPLE Country – sharing recipes and personal anecdotes, and answering reader questions. (E-mail her at country@peoplemag.com.)

Trisha Yearwood knows the secret to keeping her family close: Eating together.

"When I was growing up, suppertime, as we called it, was when the family got together around the table – that was our family time," the country singer tells Redbook in its April issue. "Those dinners are some of the best memories of my childhood."

An accomplished chef and cookbook author herself – her latest book, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, arrives in stores in April – Yearwood and hubby Garth Brooks keep up the same family mealtime tradition at their Oklahoma ranch.

"Having dinner together is something Garth and I have worked at making sure we do, because it's too easy these days not to," she says. "Now we're all going to sit down and the cells are going to be turned off and there are not going to be any iPods playing into anyone's ears. It's time for family."

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Celebrate Anniversary at McDonald's

Originally posted 12/14/2009 06:05AM

As far as anniversaries go, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood must have to be "lovin' it."

Brooks, who came out of retirement and officially began his 5-year run of shows at Wynn Las Vegas on Saturday, had a fancy dinner planned to celebrate his 4th anniversary with Yearwood, but suddenly that meal became McDonald’s French fries.

"That was our anniversary dinner," he told reporters Friday at Wynn Las Vegas, where – sporting jeans, sweatshirt and a baseball hat – Brooks played an acoustic set Saturday that included his influences (Bob Segar, James Taylor and George Strait) as well as his own songs, including "The River" and "Shameless."

When Trisha Yearwood was asked to write a cookbook, she didn't have to look any further than her husband, Garth Brooks.

"He's a really good cook," Yearwood, whose new book, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, hits stores April 6, 2010. "He has a couple recipes in there that he actually made up, like Garth's Breakfast Bowl. It's just eggs, cheese, bacon, sausage, tortellini and hash browns. Sometimes he even makes French fries and throws them in there!"

And, filling as it sounds, Yearwood – whose first cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen, hit the best-seller list – dares diners not to eat the whole thing.

Trisha Yearwood: I Survived a Plane Emergency

Originally posted 08/25/2008 04:45PM

To quote one of Trisha Yearwood's hits, the country star may have been wondering, "How do I live?" during a plane ride last week.

On her way home to Oklahoma from a three-day, 60-mile walk to benefit the Susan G. Komen breast cancer research fund last week, Yearwood took a frightening detour.

While miles in the sky, passengers heard a disturbing noise. "We had been in the air for almost an hour when we heard a loud pop," Yearwood tells PEOPLE.

What she said sounded "almost like a gunshot" was in fact the cracking of the front left window of the plane at 30,000 feet.

Yearwood, whose cookbook hit No. 3 on the New York Times Bestseller list in April, is the latest celebrity to sport the white mustache in her "Got Milk?" ad campaign which debuts in August magazines.

"I grew up on a farm, so I've been singing milk's praises my whole life," the Georgia-raised Yearwood, 43, says in the ad.
