Like many of us, countrymusic star Trisha Yearwood loves comfort food. Her new book, Trisha’s Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced
Life (Clarkson Potter), is inspired by her journey to eat healthfully without sacrificing the flavors she and her family—including husband Garth Brooks—love.
“I’ve adopted an 80/20 rule: 80 percent of the time, I make good choices; 20 percent of the time, I letmyself splurge a little,” says the star of the Food Network’s Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.
These classic Southern nibbles are a delicious example of the balance Yearwood seeks. A lighter version of the fried pickles she enjoys at one of her favorite barbecue joints, Trail’s End in Owasso, Okla., this oven-baked rendition is a treat she canmake— and serve—often.
