Kimberly Schlapman might rule the stage when she performs with her band Little Big Town, but at home, her kitchen is where she really shines.
“Cooking is just my passion,” she tells PEOPLE.
The 47-year-old mom of two has been living her country music dream daily for years, but now she’s moving forward on a different goal that highlights her culinary aspirations: launching her Love & Daisies kitchen line on HSN.

“My first set of dishes my daddy bought for me when I was a little girl. And I still have them today,” she says. “I meet no stranger when it comes to a pretty dish. So when I found out we could do this beautiful line of kitchen and home things with HSN, I was like, ‘I’m in.’”
The collection, which includes essentials like pans and knife sets, will debut on April 19th. The whimsical designs are inspired by Schlapman’s childhood, flea market finds and her love of cooking, which she’s passed on to another member of the household (who also makes a cameo in the line’s name).
“[Daisy]’s been cooking since she could hardly stand up. She started on a stool by the counter just like I did,” Schlapman says of her oldest daughter, who became a big sister to baby Dolly in January 2017. “She used to put way too much baking soda in everything and it was wretched. But my husband would always eat it. Sometimes I would have to fake it,” she says, adding, “She still makes up her own recipes but now they’re really tasty.”
He may be a champ when it comes to testing Daisy’s concoctions, but that’s about as advanced as Schlapman’s husband, Stephen, gets in the kitchen.
“He’s cooked for me twice,” the singer says with a laugh. “When we were dating he made grilled salmon. It was amazing. I was like, ‘And he can cook!’ But then he didn’t cook for me for 10 years. It’s OK; he can do everything else. I’ll cook for him.”
