Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman Cooks Up a Recipe Book
This April, Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town is releasing her own cookbook. Last week, the blonde singer and Grammy-winning artist took to Twitter to share the exciting news, along with a photo of the book's cover.
"I've been so excited about this that I can hardly stand it!" Schlapman says.
Titled Oh Gussie!, the cookbook features Southern style comfort foods such as chicken and dumplings, Georgia peach salsa, baked onion rings with hot ranch dip, and big batch banana pudding. Raised in Georgia, Schlapman draws on her Southern roots to create authentic and delicious recipes. According to the cookbook's Amazon page, "In Oh Gussie! Kimberly shares soul-pleasing recipes and soul-stirring stories from her roots in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, her travels on tour with the band, and from the life she loves back home in country music’s capital."
The cookbook will be filled with beautiful color photography that captures the essence and beauty of her food.
Schlapman is no stranger to the kitchen. She recently hosted the cable cooking series Kimberly’s Simply Southern, which ran for three seasons. And last year, she won TASTE Award for best home chef in a series.
Oh Gussie! — written Martha Foose — goes on sale April 14, but is available for pre-order from all major book distributors. The title refers to a phrase the singer uses when she's feeling particularly excited about something.
