Country music star Trisha Yearwood invites y’all into her Nashville kitchen starting tomorrow morning (10:30am/9:30c) on Food Network. She’ll cook up Southern favorites, share stories and keep her door open for family and friends.
Yesterday, Food Network Facebook, Twitter and Google+ fans got the chance to ask Trisha about her favorites, like Sunday meals, comfort foods and potluck pleasers.
@paint_it_golden on Twitter asked: What’s your favorite dish to cook on a regular basis?
TY: Basic stuff like spaghetti and black-bean lasagna.
@kongatoast on Twitter asked: What’s your favorite Sunday meal?
TY: Having roast beef, rice and gravy always reminds me of Sundays growing up.
Ann Garvin on Facebook asked: How do you plan out your weekly menu?
TY: Haha! I don’t. I have good intentions, but I never seem to plan ahead.
Doris Marett Housley on Facebook asked: When invited to someone’s home for a potluck dinner, what dish do you bring?
TY: I usually bring dessert so it doesn’t have to be warm. Something easy like Sweet and Saltines.
@MoltenNotebook on Twitter asked: Are there any good Southern dishes for vegetarians, aside from the desserts?
TY: I make my TY Thai Salad without chicken. It’s full of good veggies and has an awesome lime-cilantro dressing.
Kim Price Arnold on Facebook asked: What recipe do you make that people always ask you for after they’ve tried it?
TY: Key lime cake
Kat Roman on Facebook asked: Which recipe has been passed down from your family that you’ve personalized a little? Or what’s your favorite childhood recipe?
TY: One of my favorite recipes of all time is my Grandma Lizzie’s cornbread dressing. We serve it at Thanksgiving, but I make it other times of the year, too, because I can’t stand the thought of only eating it once a year.
Stephen E. Bradshaw on Facebook asked: What’s your favorite Southern comfort food dish?
TY: Mashed potatoes
Heather Wilson on Facebook asked: What part of the South did you grow up in?
TY: I grew up in middle Georgia.
Take a sneak peek inside Trisha’s Southern Kitchen and tune in tomorrow at 10:30am/9:30c for her premiere episode.
