Book Review: Cravings by Chrissy Teigen (aka My New Favorite Cook Book!)

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.

My thoughts:
Let me start by saying that this book contains some of the most gorgeous food photography I've ever seen.  The kind of pictures that leave you drooling and cause your stomach to growl.  Almost every recipe has a beautiful color photo accompanying it.

Check out the Crab Cakes Benedict:

Creamy Parmesan Eggs:

Roasted Tomato Soup:

Caprese Salad:

King's Hawaiian BLPTS:

Margarita Chicken Fajitas:

Super Tuna Melts:

Chrissy Teigen is a hilarious, down-to-earth storyteller.  Not many cookbooks make me laugh out loud, but this did from page one.  The ingredients for the recipes are easy to find and the recipes themselves are easy to follow.  Note, this is not a health food cookbook, it's a yummy food cookbook.  You won't find pretentious ingredients or tiny portion sizes, just honest to goodness, tried and true deliciousness!  And when it comes to food, Chrissy Teigen likes it spicy, which makes us love her recipes even more:)  There is not one single recipe in this book that I wouldn't try and that's saying something!  Cravings is officially my new favorite cookbook!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
