There was a foodie story about country starson the Tennessean‘s website last week that I printed out, so that I could try the recipes when I got back home after my Nashville business-plus-pleasure trip. I prepared them all yesterday, and have to say I have never had a better meal. Maybe it’s because I knew I had two great country singers by my virtual side. But you should try at least one of these recipes. Trisha Yearwood’s Pork Loin was a no-brainer. Zac Brown’s Black Eyed Pea Fritters were not pretty, but everyone loved them and I was glad to teach my kids that black eyed peas were an actual food, not just a band. But Yearwood’s Key Lime Cake was hands-down the favorite of the night. I know she joked on the CMT Music Awards blue carpet that she was not going to give up singing for cooking, but she absolutely has a gift for both. If she cooks like this every night, Garth Brooks is a lucky man.
