Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering Reviews

  • Melissa

    I just love Joanna Gaines. And this book is not an exception... I marked more than half the recipe to try! Note that if you have food intolerances, like I have, you may have problems finding some recipes that you can eat, because she uses a lot of bread, eggs, cheese and milk, but there's always a way ;-)

    Can't wait to try these!!

  • Brittany

    I received this book as a college graduation present and was enamored with it. I love the layout, the way that everything is presented and so many delcious things. I want to cook practically everything in it! In a saturated market of cookbooks, this one stands out!

    Joanna Gaines, from the hit TV show Fixer Upper, and designer of Magnolia Homes, has added one more star to her plate -

    And let me tell you,

    The cookbook is split into

    - starting with what Joanna recommends for a well-stocked pantry, then recipes for breakfast, lunch, soups & salads (etc).

    Her recipes are

    You want an enchilada- here's an enchilada. You want a potpie - here's a potpie.

    You want a four-course dinner with un-pronounceable ingredients?

    I adore how

    in her recipes for the family on the go.

    For example, she provided a recipe for roasting a chicken...but then says in all her recipes that use chicken that you could buy one of those pre-cooked ones from the grocery store and get the same results.

    Most of the recipes are

    - some of the food and some fun, candid ones of the Gaines family.

    The pictures were gorgeous and totally made this book stand out in comparison to my other cookbooks.

    All of the food-type sections and each recipe is accompanied by

    either about where the recipe came from, a few tweaks she's tried on it or her family's reaction to her recipes.

    So far

    and have had success every time - I've made modifications and have tried her suggestions and have been pleased by her the results.

    Most of the recipes are the kind that are right up my alley - so I'm excited to see what happens as I try more.

    My family LOVES the sour cream chicken enchiladas (p. 192-194), the quick cinnamon swirl & walnut roll (p. 58-59) and (of course) Jojo's biscuits (p 16-18).

    All in all, I could not be more satisfied. I adore cooking and trying out new recipes on my family - and it's safe to say that we are all very happy with this purchase.

    Cannot wait to experiment!

    I love this cookbook, but gave it 4 stars because she uses Velveeta in several recipes and I just CANNOT. I’ve made several of the recipes and loved the baked chicken with bacon bottom and wild rice! It was a hit among everyone, even kids!

    Fans of the Gaines family will really enjoy Magnolia Table because Joanna has added a lot of personal touches to this book. She talks about her family and her life in Waco. There are many pictures of her children, her farm, etc. She also includes family recipes that apparently have been family favorites through the years.

    The recipes have easy to follow instructions and, for the most part, require common ingredients that are easy to find. Not all of the recipes include photos but I would say mor

    The recipes have easy to follow instructions and, for the most part, require common ingredients that are easy to find. Not all of the recipes include photos but I would say more than half of them do. Nutrition information is not included. One major drawback is that the book does not lay flat on your countertop. I had to use paper weights to hold my page open while cooking. Apparently Joanna is of Korean descent and she includes a small section of Korean recipes from her mother and grandparents. The recipes in Magnolia Table that I tried were delicious and there are many, many recipes to choose from.

  • Kyra Leseberg (Roots & Reads)

    A nice collection of well known recipes with simple ingredients and easy to follow directions. The beautiful photographs and notes from Joanna are a great addition.

  • Corinna

    Absolutely beautiful book, but in terms of practicality...I'm not sure how many of these recipes I'll ever make. Still, the pictures and writing style are gorgeous. And I can't help but love the Gaines and want to support everything they do.

  • Arielle

    Waaaaay too much canned cream of chicken soup. And canned/boxed things in general.

  • Conni (AKA Book Goddess) Neiswinger

    Lots of gorgeous photos of food made with canned ingredients, store bought mixes, condensed soup, etc. Nothing I'll be purchasing or cooking from! It doesn't deserve any stars.

    My reviews are not generally so very different from everyone else s. This may be a first. I love to cook and love cookbooks and read them from front to back. I think I read at least half of this one with my jaw hanging open.

    I don't think I am a food snob. I often make the basic "Texas Queso", Velveeta and Rotel in the microwave, but the number of times Velveeta showed up in this cookbook was astounding. Condensed cream of something soup also was included in several recipes. The author also uses

    My reviews are not generally so very different from everyone else s. This may be a first. I love to cook and love cookbooks and read them from front to back. I think I read at least half of this one with my jaw hanging open.

    I don't think I am a food snob. I often make the basic "Texas Queso", Velveeta and Rotel in the microwave, but the number of times Velveeta showed up in this cookbook was astounding. Condensed cream of something soup also was included in several recipes. The author also uses Uncle Ben's Wild Rice as a part of a few recipes. I am all for shortcuts, but ingredients like cream of chicken soup do not taste good in Mexican recipes and the way to make these recipes without the soup is usually no more difficult. She makes her grandfather's favorite Lebanese meat pies (Fatayar) with refrigerated crescent roll dough. Refrigerated crescent roll dough has a distinct taste to it and doesn't taste anything like Fatayar dough to me. There are other prepared doughs on the market that would work just as well and taste better.

    I burst out laughing when I got to the mashed potato recipe with milk, butter, salt and pepper. You think? I have never seen their TV show but I think these people are clever at business and are laughing all the way to the bank.

    I was disappointed because I was looking for some good basic dinner recipes that were not complicated and didn't have hard to find ingredients.

    I did think that almost all of the desserts looked good and the techniques and ingredients looked reasonable. The dessert section just wasn't enough for me to give this cookbook more than one star.
