Maybe she's on a photo shoot in Zanzibar. Maybe she's making people laugh on TV. But all Chrissy Teigen really wants to do is talk about dinner. Or breakfast. Lunch gets some love, too.
For years, she's been collecting, cooking, and Instagramming her favorite recipes, and here they are: from breakfast all day to John's famous fried chicken with spicy honey butter to her mom's Thai classics.
Salty, spicy, saucy, and fun as sin (that's the food, but that's Chrissy, too), these dishes are for family, for date night at home, for party time, and for a few life-sucks moments (salads). You'll learn the importance of chili peppers, the secret to cheesy-cheeseless eggs, and life tips like how to use bacon as a home fragrance, the single best way to wake up in the morning, and how not to overthink men or Brussels sprouts. Because for Chrissy Teigen, cooking, eating, life, and love are one and the same.

First of all, Chrissy Teigan is hilarious and her writing is worth reading for the fun of it. Secondly, she makes cooking approachable, fun, and ultimately tasty which is what you want from a cookbook.
Love it!

Chrissy Teigen is hilarious and this book is probably worth reading just for her humorous intros to the recipes.
The recipes all look delicious and amazing but I confess to never having tried any of them because we're not the kind of household that has prosciutto or kale to hand. Also the quantities of the recipes are more suitable for a larger family (rather than 2 adults and a fussy toddler).

She is fun and her recipes are accessible and her tips are doable and helpful. I like that she's not a professionally trained cook too! I already tried her Thai dishes- and they're so good - my family loves it! This is a must read recipe book!

Also check out Sous Chef!

I’m a very lazy cook. Like, the laziest. Nothing is worse to me than opening a cookbook and seeing 20+ ingredients for each recipe. The reason I really like Cravings is because Chrissy Teigen is also a self-proclaimed lazy cook, which means her recipes are actually approachable and don’t send me into despair. And of course, they taste great! She’s also hilarious, so I actually enjoy reading her little blurbs instead of skipping down to the recipes. Very enjoyable all around.

I really don't like the tone of this book, but some of the recipes look really good. Made the coconut rice. Next time I'd leave out the added sugar.

I remember debating the finer points of flaky pastry with my chicken-pot-pie obsessed American dad. I remember the divine mix of Thai food, TV dinners, and hearty homemade goodness that have shaped this palate of mine to this day. I remember all this but I still google my husband's birthday. Thank god he's famous.
