Best-selling author Trisha Yearwood releases her fourth cookbook on Tuesday, complete with a foreword by her superstar husband, Garth Brooks.
The first time Yearwood cooked for Brooks, she confessed she made a fettuccine alfredo so heavy he needed a nap immediately afterward.
But the first time Brooks cooked for her, she said it was pretty much love at first bite.
"I went to visit him in Oklahoma, and he asked me if I wanted pizza. I don't think I've ever told this story," Yearwood said in a recent interview with ABC Audio. "And I said, 'Yeah, that'd be great.''
"And so he goes into the kitchen and he comes back with -- first of all, they were the two for five dollar pizzas, which is fine. He still likes those," she shared with a laugh. "He does. He came back with a pizza for him and a pizza for me. And I'm like, 'I'm probably just gonna marry him. This is probably gonna happen...'"
"I did not eat my whole pizza, but he did eat his whole pizza, and some of my pizza," she added. "It was just really sweet."
Since then, Yearwood's nicknamed her husband "Gartha Stewart," he's so good in the kitchen.
"He makes a hot pasta salad that I love," she said. "He's got kind of a famous breakfast bowl in the second book that he makes a lot. He just made that for my birthday a couple weeks ago."
"You know, he'll get in there and do whatever you need," she added. "If you want him to cook and take it over, he'll take it over."
"Trisha's Kitchen: Easy Comfort Food for Friends & Family" is available now and includes 125 recipes from the host of Food Network's "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" and her sister, Beth Yearwood Bernard.
