This book had me at homemade corn dogs. Give me a nostalgic and bready comfort food that serves a crowd, and I'm yours forever. I love this cookbook—it's both refreshing and real life. Through the stories and recipes that fill its pages, Jen reminds us that feeding the people we love shouldn't be one more thing to perfect or overdo. It's the food itself and the connection it creates that far outlasts what's on the menu. This book is just another extension of all the beautiful ways Jen shares her heart through her story, laughter, and now—luck for us—delicious recipes. — Joanna Gaines, co-founder, Magnolia
Jen's a real-life mom, a fantastic home cook, and a delightfully hilarious writer, so I already knew I was going to love her cookbook. But let me tell you... I didn't expect to fall in love with it the way I did! In a word: WOW. Every page is so bright and fun, so original and fresh, and the way she categorizes her delicious recipes is both clever and approachable.

Feed These People reads like an invitation to Jen Hatmaker's front porch—cozy, dishy, and full of spice. Just when I think we're settling into truck stop grub (Fried mozzarella sticks! Avocado tacos!) she flips to vacation Bible school (Mushroom and Gruyère tartine! Honey mustard pecan-crusted salmon)—either way I'm singing hymns of praise and tying on my apron. — Jennifer Garner, actor, food lover, home cook

Like the perfect dinner, you'll show up for the food, and you'll stay for the stories. Thanks for inviting me.

Feed These People is for all of us scattered, hungry home cooks doing our best to trick the ones we love into thinking we're wizards in the kitchen.
