It’s no secret that Trisha Yearwood is a great cook, but she struggles to get the family around the dinner table just like everyone else.

The Grammy winner and host of ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen’ on the Food Network is letting fans in on the secrets for keeping good food on the table and staying healthy while maintaining a busy work schedule.

“First of all, we’re musicians, so there’s no ‘routine,'” she tells Women’s Day about life with husband of nine years, Garth Brooks, and his three daughters, Taylor, 22, August, 20, and Allie, 18.

“I’m always fighting hard to make sure family meals don’t get lost in the shuffle, because cooking for the kids means I have one more dinner at home with them,” she says. “These girls are growing up, and who knows where we’re all going to land, so we need to make that time now. Having all of us under one roof? That’s like heaven.”

And when things get really busy and Yearwood wants to get all three girls around the same table, she knows just how to draw them home.

“Taylor and August are in college now, but they live nearby, and if I send out a text that says, ‘Hey, it’s veggie night,’ they’ll show up,” she says. “They know it means I’m roasting all their favorite vegetables and probably serving a meat loaf, too.”

Yearwood shares more tips for getting the family together, as well as some of the recipes she uses at home, including her famous chili, here.
