If your heart stopped when you heard the news that Fixer Upper would be ending after its fifth season, you weren't alone. Fans of the show, and the wildly popular couple behind it, were so distraught most of us missed the quiet announcement that Chip and Joanna Gaines are also working on a cookbook.
Yes, that's right! In addition to launching a tableware and home decor line for Target, the house-flipping duo will be putting together their best recipes for you to make at home.
In a recent post on Instagram, Joanna revealed two dishes she's been working on for the release. "After a week-long photo shoot for our cookbook, celebrating with some homemade mac n cheese and brownie pie just feels right," she writes.
Further details are scarce, but it appears the project is currently named Magnolia Table Cookbook — and we expect that will likely stick, since Chip is slated to open a restaurant with the same name. Maybe this means we can look forward to recipes for the forthcoming menu items there, like Chip's famous ham sandwich, farm-style eggs Benedict, the Gaines Brothers burgers, and homemade pies. Of course, we're also eager to whip up Joanna's star dishes too, such as her golden buttermilk biscuits and gravy, classic chocolate chip cookies, and gooey cinnamon rolls.
This push to perfect and publish the family's best recipes makes sense — after all, Chip and Joanna already debuted a bakery, Silos Baking Co., in June 2016 and constantly host a bevy of food trucks at Magnolia Market, their country store in Waco, Texas.
Better keep your eyes peeled for pre-order links — we have a feeling this baby is going to sell out quick.
