Cookbook Corner – Cravings 

Can I just say how much I LOVE this cookbook!? 

“Cravings” By: Chrissy Teigen 

I’ve been using it and cooking out of it for so long – that I almost forgot to post the actual review! It just dawned on me last week, that – hey! – I haven’t even posted my review! Let’s not waste anymore time – and let’s dive in!

First of all – some of you may be thinking “Chrissy Teigen” – really? But – YES! Chrissy graces the cover – and many of the photographs inside – in fabulous form as usual – but what’s even more fabulous is the FOOD! Step in Adeena Sussman – she’s a genius!

The book is sectioned off into the following categories –

Breakfast All Day


Salads (For When You Need Them)

Noodles and Carbs

Thai Mom

Party Time

Sh*t on Toast

Vegetable Things

Things That Intimidate People But Shouldn’t


Liking this book already, aren’t you!? It really is a gem of a book – and some of the stories and recipes are equally mouth dropping.

If you aren’t used to how Chrissy “talks” than I suggest you follow her on Instagram. Some people may think she’s “brash” but I think she’s smart, honest and hilarious.

Just some of the mouthwatering recipes you’ll find in this wonderful book are –
