Okay, something you may or may not know about me.  I love to cook.  I never have enough time to do it to the level I would like, but I love it nonetheless.  And I'm also kind of addicted to the Food Network and the Cooking Channel.  So, you can imagine how intrigued I was to discover that one of my favorite artists is getting her own show.

Trisha Yearwood is already an established author of two cookbooks.  Her  'Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen' and 'Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood,' are best sellers.  But now, she's taking the next step and will have a cooking show on the Food Network.

The series begins airing in April and shows Trisha in her own kitchen, preparing her favorites and then sharing with friends and family.

I'm so grateful to Food Network for the opportunity to share my family's favorite recipes and precious memories in this show Trisha shares with the Hollywood Reporter. I'm having so much fun, it's a very special experience.

The 47-year-old, who previously appeared on the Food Network as a guest on Paula Deen's cooking show, Paula's Home Cooking, is a welcome addition to the network's line-up.

A spokesman for the network was very pleased to make the announcement and said everyone connected with the show is excited.  

We look forward to sharing this side of Trisha with viewers, showcasing an intimate, entertaining look at her personal recipes, family traditions and warm Southern hospitality.

There isn't even a working title for the series.  The network is hoping that the six scheduled episodes can expand to more.  That, of course, all depends on viewership.  Here's hoping Mrs. Brooks gets a chance to hit it out of the park with her new show.  She already showed her chops with her books.  Stay tuned.
