Magnolia Table: From the Joanna Gaines Kitchen to Yours
Peach Caprese, the perfect (and easy) Lemon Pie and more recipes you’ll love from the HGTV Fixer Upper star.
Even if you’re not familiar with her work on HGTV’s Fixer Upper (which she stars in with husband Chip Gaines), anyone with a mouth and eyes will love her debut cookbook, Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering. Named after the restaurant the duo recently opened in their native Waco, Texas, her cookbook is filled with family favourites that pull from her Korean heritage and Kansas upbringing. There are also plenty of recipes created with kids in mind (which is great timing now that the little ones are back to school), including make-it-the-night-before-dishes like the Savory Ham and Cheese Bread Pudding or her 15-minutes-to-prep Chicken Spaghetti Casserole.
Out now, you can visit Chapters Indigo to snag a copy of Magnolia Table, but for now here’s a quick taste of her cookbook recipes below:
Now’s the perfect time for this bright salad—a fun twist on the traditional caprese salad of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil.
Joanna says the cucumber kimchi salad, which has a clean, fresh flavour, is the ideal complement to her mother’s recipe for sweet barbecued beef bulgogi.
3. Lemon Pie
Joanna actually got this recipe from a friend of hers and she was blown away by how easy (and delicious) it was, and it ain’t too hard on the eyes, either.
