When she’s not on stage or in the studio, country music icon Martina McBride is most likely in the kitchen cooking with family and friends. Growing up on a farm in Kansas, Martina began helping in the kitchen at an early age, preparing fresh-from-the-field ingredients at her mother’s side. Meals and stories were shared daily around the table. It’s a tradition she continues with her own family as often as she can because real life is what’s worth celebrating. In this gorgeously photographed cookbook, readers will find more than 100 simple and satisfying recipes that entice with fresh, seasonal ingredients and downhome flavor. Whip up her family favorites like her mother-in-law Flavia’s Deviled Eggs, husband John’s Bacon-Wrapped Olives, or her go-to Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Sauce and Slaw. Mix things up in your own kitchen by following Martina’s inspired ideas to feed a handful or a houseful.
|This was a good cookbook with some good recipes that I will try. A Tai slaw that looked good, cinnamon rolls that I am always willing to try, cheddar biscuits with bacon that looked good also. The book led off though with a recipe for a homemade orange – cherry almond granola that really is worth the time to try. There is also a quick recipe collard greens that I have not seen before. There were other ones that did not suit me but that is like every cookbook. The photos and stories were both excellent as were the directions for each recipe, easy to follow instructions as well as her encouragement to add or change to try a different flavor which was something different as well. I did like her recipe for a flour-less chocolate cake that is really easy to make. Overall a very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
