Dolly Parton (in January) announced her upcoming cookbook.

Dolly Parton is dishing out all her family recipes.

The country music legend joined forces with her sister Rachel Parton George to share their tried and true dishes in their upcoming cookbook, Good Lookin’ Cookin’. The book, which will be available Sept. 17, includes tips for hosting any and all holidays.

Dolly, 78, and Rachel, 64, grew up with nine other siblings near the Smoky Mountains in Sevierville, Tennessee, where their mom would make classic comfort foods like dumplings every Christmas (a tradition Dolly still continues with today).

Now, in Good Lookin’ Cookin’, the sisters will reveal 80 more beloved recipes like barbecue spare ribs, macaroni and cheese and strawberry shortcake. Plus, the book includes personal details, like which condiment is on the table for every Parton family meal and which dish Rachel makes for Dolly's birthday every year.

"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," continued the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. "I can't wait to get this book in your hands, and for you to get this food on your table."

Even the book’s title is personal to the sisters. Dolly coos, “Hey, good lookin’, what ya got cookin’?” whenever she finds her sister in the kitchen, according to a press release.

In an Instagram post announcing the cookbook, Dolly gushed over her sister’s culinary talents.

“I wrote this book with my sister, Rachel, who might just be the best cook I know. 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,” she wrote in the caption.

Dolly also shared several food photos from the book — like of crème brûlée, biscuits, and a string bean-mushroom casserole — giving readers a peek at what to expect when the book is released in the fall.

The sisters will be also be recording an audiobook of the cookbook.

This is not Dolly’s first cookbook (she released Dolly's Dixie Fixin's back in 2006) nor is it the musical icon’s only food-related venture.

She has also introduced a buttermilk pancake mix (her first item in the breakfast category) and will be announcing her frozen food line soon.
