Trisha Yearwood shared a joyful, three-part update on social media on Monday, March 8. First of all, the singer is officially COVID-free after being diagnosed with the virus in February. She contracted the virus after she and husband Garth Brooks were exposed to a member of their team who had tested positive. Yearwood and Brooks immediately quarantined after learning of their exposure, and as Yearwood reveals in the second part of her update, Brooks never contracted the virus.

“Don’t they say good news comes in 3s??!!” she wrote on Facebook. “1) I got the official news that I am covid negative. Thank you all for your love, support messages and sweet tweets! 2) My incredible husband is literally Superman and never got covid – but still took all the precautions to keep everyone we know and love safe!”

Now that the couple is officially past their COVID detour, Yearwood was able to share some more exciting news in the third part of her update: the cover reveal for her new cookbook, Trisha’s Kitchen, out September 28.

“3) Today I can finally share with you the cover of my new cookbook Trisha’s Kitchen,” she wrote in the post. “Garth said, good news begets good news, let’s share it with the world today and spread the love! Let me know what you think of the cover. You can get your copy September 28.”

Yearwood also chatted with People about what the cookbook will entail, which is “real recipes” and “simple ingredients,” and those simple recipes came in handy when Yearwood was suddenly quarantining in her home for weeks.

“I think I was really born for cooking in quarantine, because I was raised on the theory that simple is better,” Yearwood told the publication. ”My pantry holds basics, staples that I use daily, so when we were faced with being home and not going to the grocery store, especially in the very beginning of the pandemic, I didn’t panic. I knew I could make meals out of what I had in my freezer—I always keep frozen ground beef, steaks, pizzas—and dried goods like pasta and canned sauces.”

The cookbook also features recipes close to her family’s heart and stories about why they love the dishes. One of the recipes featured is a favorite of Brooks’ and one that they coined “Garth’s Teriyaki Bowls.”

“We used to go to this sushi place [In the Raw] in Tulsa with our girls, and they have a version of this teriyaki bowl on their menu, so we took what we loved about that entrée and made it our own,” Yearwood said. “It’s one of Garth’s favorite meals!”
