Former ‘Fixer Upper’ Star Joanna Gaines is Releasing Her Second Cookbook


Joanna Gaines has another exciting announcement. And no, she’s not having another baby.

The former Fixer Upper star is set to release her second cookbook next spring. Currently titled Magnolia Table, Volume 2, the book is currently available for pre-order.

“My hope with this cookbook is that it really encourages and inspires people to experiment in their kitchen and to get after it,” Gaines says in a video. “For me I’ve failed multiple times but in those failings, I’ve learned so much and it just kept me coming back. I never wanted to quit.”

The cookbook, which is the much-anticipated follow-up to her first cookbook Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering, is filled to the brim with recipes for dishes such as Mushroom-Guryére Quiche, Grilled Bruschetta Chicken, and Magnolia Press’ Chocolate Cake.

And while the food sounds scrumptious, Gaines says there is another, far more important reason she released this cookbook.

“At the end of the day, it’s really about gathering your friends and family around the table,” she says. “It’s those moments that make working in the kitchen, worth it, every time.”

And its these recipes that will now live on for families everywhere, including Gaines’ very own. Gaines and her husband Chip Gaines are parents of five children, including their youngest son Crew.

“It’s funny, for Jo and me and our older kids, we watch Crew and see how he embraces life with this amazing neutrality,” Chip tells People magazine. “He’s just full of life, love and curiosity.”
