fall in love!

What a year it’s been so far! I don’t know about you, friends, but I am more than ready for fall to arrive. Aside from cooler weather and the turning of the leaves, this season also brings along a routine and rhythm that seem to be missing in the summertime. Now that Alex has started her job in Dallas, Paige has headed back to college and Bryce and Todd are starting school and football (go, Huskies!), we can all settle in, enjoy a little predictability and have some fun! The first half of 2019 will go down in my own history as the busiest of my life (so far, at least). Writing my sixth cookbook, The New Frontier, was a big part of that; in this issue, you’ll get a peek…

talk to me!

I love your cookbooks! How do you decide what recipes go in them? —Brooke Clarke, Ansbach, Germany I look for dishes that are fun, flavorful and colorful, and then I ask myself: Is this something that I’m madly in love with and/or do my kids and husband love it? If I can’t answer yes to either question, the recipe doesn’t make the cut. It’s a fun—but occasionally stressful!—process. You can read more about how I created my latest cookbook, The New Frontier, on page 12. Do you have any quick and easy breakfast recipes for back-to-school season? —Georgine Jeffries, Charlotte, NC I’m a big fan of egg bites, whether I make them in a mini-muffin pan or an Instant Pot (my new cookbook has a recipe). I whip up a big batch, then let them…

get the picture!

I love writing cookbooks, and I especially love the process of cooking and photographing each recipe. For my first cookbook (back in 2009!), my best friend Hyacinth helped me. We managed to pull it off with seven children running around my kitchen, and I barely met the deadline. It was crazy-fun! For my new (sixth!) cookbook, The New Frontier, I assembled a small but mighty team of friends who helped me with everything from getting groceries to antiques shopping, to chopping, to styling, to lighting, to cleanup. It took us 14 full days of shooting to finish all the recipes, which we spaced out over a period of six months. Take a look at just one of our shoot days. 9:16 a.m. Breakfast was an iced coffee and a Diet Dr Pepper,…

old school

Ree’s uniform is a floral top and jeans, but she’s always happy to put on a good varsity sweatshirt—“the classic vintage-looking kind with big bold letters,” she says. She’s not the only fan: Ever since Harvard baseball players sewed giant Old English H’s onto their jerseys in 1865, letterman jackets and sweaters have been an iconic part of American style. Ree has so many shirts from Texas A&M (her daughter Alex’s alma mater) and the University of Arkansas (now home to her other daughter, Paige) that she rarely finds time to wear the ones from her own college, USC. But as much as she loves all of these, nothing compares to her older brother’s letterman jacket, which she wore in high school. “I thought I was the coolest.” Check out some…

let’s get nude!

You’d think finding the right nude lipstick would be easy, right? I figured I’d just pick a shade close to my own lip color and that would be that. But it’s not so simple! The shade can’t be too dark or it’ll look too harsh next to my skin. If it’s too bright, it’ll clash with my hair. The struggle! Here’s a little guide to help: These lipsticks flatter almost everyone—just pick the best one for your skin tone. —Ree Hey, redheads! Rosy or deep pink–based colors brighten skin and accentuate freckles best. Maybelline New York Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick in Toasted Truf fle, $7.50; ulta.com For a soft, natural effect, apply nude lipstick with your fingertips, says New York City makeup artist Ashleigh Ciucci.
