Our first look at the cookbook Dolly Parton wrote with her sister, Rachel Parton George, is here!

After a year of teasing, the country legend shared the cover of Good Lookin' Cookin' on social media along with the news that it’s available for pre-order now.

"Well, what's cookin', good lookin'? It's our new cookbook! I wrote this book with my sister, Rachel, who might just be the best cook I know," Dolly wrote on Wednesday. "If you're like us, you believe that good food and good times are the next best thing to pure love. So take a journey with us, into the kitchen."

Packed with more than 80 delicious dishes as well as photos of Dolly and Rachel cooking and hosting, Good Lookin’ Cookin’  will “make you feel like part of the Parton family." With their trademark warmth and sisterly love, Dolly and Rachel remind you that cooking doesn’t need to be serious—it should be fun!

"I love good cooking, but not as much as I love my sister Rachel. So, getting to combine the two was a joy beyond belief for me,” Dolly said in a statement. “I do believe you're going to love all these great recipes, and I think you're gonna have as much fun reading these stories and things that we put together for you as we did. I can't wait to get this book in your hands, and for you to get this food on your table."

Recipes include American classics such as country ham and biscuits, barbecue spare ribs, Family Favorite meatloaf, Slaw of Many Colors, watermelon fruit salad, mac and cheese, and strawberry Shortcake.

In Good Lookin' Cookin', the sisters also share tips for hosting, including 12 multi-course holiday menus for New Year’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more. According to a news release, you’ll even learn how much butter or whipped cream goes into a “Dolly Dollop,” what condiment is almost always on the table at Parton family meals, and what special dish Rachel makes at Dolly’s request every year for her birthday.

“This book has always been a dream of mine. Cooking with my sister Dolly, looking through favorite recipes, and recalling stories has been great fun. Through the years, we’ve washed many dishes, cleaned up plenty of spills, and shared a lot of laughter. And somehow, we always manage to end up with good lookin’ cookin’! Everyone knows Dolly as a great singer-songwriter —and she is—but she’s also very creative in the kitchen,” Rachel said. “I’m so excited to share this book with you so you can experience that yourself!”
