Reviews Magnolia Table

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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!!

    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...

    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.

    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!

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

    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.

    Beautiful pictures! Great commentary before each recipe. But boy, does she use a lot of cheese and butter! And that's not the vegan in me talking. That's the person who enjoys blood moving swiftly through my arteries. I do love JG though. And this is a beautiful book that I will proudly display on the shelf with my other favorites.

    3.5 starsI'm not a fan of home improvement shows so it took me more than a minute to realize the stars of Fixer Upper and the owners of Magnolia Table restaurant were one and the same.I picked up Magnolia Table because I love to eat and I love food porn.First, the quality of the book is great. It's really thick and heavy, on nice paper with large, gorgeous pictures.Second, I wasn't sure what to expect with the recipes; in my experience, you see...

    I tabbed several to make and have already made on which turned out really well. I loved that it made enough to feed ALL OF US and we had leftovers.

    I've already made a few things from this cookbook and they were easy and delicious. The pictures and brief write-ups really add something. Beautiful!

    This is probably one of the best cookbooks I’ve ever read. This and Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook.

    I can't wait to start cooking from this. I'm not crazy about all the processed ingredients she uses (cream of soups, Velveeta, etc.) so I don't how often I'll use those recipes, however.But basically, I want Joanna Gaines to be my BFF.

    I love the Gaines empire, but this cookbook fell flat. To me, a seasoned cook, the recipes seemed simplistic and lacking creativity. I read this cover to cover and came away thinking it was made to round out her brand.

    I was hesitant going into this book. I am a devoted Fixer Upper viewer, and what I learned from those early seasons is that the Gaines family eats out a lot. Maybe that was just during filming when they're in the midst of a big project with no time for cooking, but I never watched the show and thought, "I bet they'd create a good cookbook."That being said, if you enjoy country cooking (me!), then this really IS a good cookbook. Some of the recipe...

    I love to read cookbooks that share stories as well as recipes (my sister and I have many recipes from our mother, grandmother, and aunt - the stories that go along with a lot of these are precious to us). At the beginning of each chapter (breakfast, lunch, soups & salads, etc), the author - saying Joanna seems a little too personal since I only know her through her TV show and books - tells a story about each category. It feels like she's sharin...

    I am so excited to start cooking out of this. If you read the intro, I find that I have the same thought process and feelings toward cooking for my family and Joanna does. This is an interesting and fun compilation of eclectic family recipes that the Gaines family uses. Texas has wonderful food traditions and she includes things like the chili recipe but also infused her family culture and tastes into the pages. It’s fun to get a cookbook that ...

    Beautiful photography and layout. I appreciated the stories she shared with every recipe. And yes, I read recipe books cover to cover like a novel 😂

    Lovely photos and great quality paper make this a nice cookbook to add to your collection. Many family recipes collected from both Joanna and Chip's families with notes and stories to go along. Most of the recipes are pretty basic every day fare, and lots of them are things that you may already have in your own family cookbook. Farm to table is a literal thing for the Gaines family, they are blessed to have their own farm to shop from :)

    I’m so excited to try these recipes. The first thing I did was read through ingredients because if there are too many ingredients or too many weird ingredients, I’ll never make the recipe. This cookbook is great in that regard. The ingredients are mostly standard and even a few store-bought items for simplicity’s sake. She is a hardworking mom after all, like so many who will be grabbing this cookbook! I didn’t read the instructions for e...

    Ok, so I have (quite a few) recipe books! But since I now have two sons in the southwestern states, I thought I’d like to incorporate a few new ideas from that neck of the woods in my cooking. This book draws from the menu used for the Gaines’ restaurant in Texas, with an emphasis on hearty food for gatherings of people. Recipes have ( so far) have received rave reviews, but there are many I haven’t tried yet. Looking forward to it though!

    If you're expecting high-end, fancy recipes, this may not be the recipe book for you. Joanna Gaines, of Fixer Upper fame, gives us an everyday, useful book of recipes - recipes for a get-together with friends or a potluck at church or just feeding your family. Yes, there are 'cheats' - sometimes the recipes call for canned chicken broth, instead of making your own; or gasp! Velveeta cheese is called for in a recipe. While the true gourmet cook ma...

    If you ever watch HGTV's show Fixer Upper, then your acquainted with Joanna Gaines, the designer who brings her clients dream home to life. In their last season of the show, one of the projects was a restaurant which had been a staple with history in the Gaines's town of Waco, Texas. Chip and Joanna bought the restaurant and as usual Joanna put her spin on it and updated the restaurant which now they own. In this book, Magnolia Table is also the ...

    This book started and ended strong - totally attainable and interesting jams and homey desert classics bookend an otherwise standard set of recipes, which are easier to recommend for busy women who don't enjoy cooking or teenagers starting off in the kitchen rather than to home chefs or foodies. This is essentially a slightly tex mex version of the halfway homemade show/recipes. For me, I want a copy of this book for the great basics: brining and...

    Genuine and authentic. That's Joanna Gaines in her blue jeans, simple top and an apron. She puts the love back into cooking. Food intolerances and digestive issues have taken that out for me and it was lovely to spend some hours reading the stories and recipes in the book that felt like warmth and comfort. I'll try and tweak a few recipes so I can eat them. Is it possible to make those fluffy biscuits gluten free? One can only try. This is the ul...

    This book by the popular HGTV "Fixer Upper" host was enjoyable. I admire Joanna Gaines and the book displays her signature style and talent. Even though most of the recipes are things I probably wouldn't make (I hate to cook), it was a nice collection of comfort food with many Southern/Texas recipes. She focuses on meals for a family, but has suggestions for entertaining as well. Lots of the recipes call for butter, eggs, cream, etc. but there ar...
