Love comfort food and Chrissy Teigen!?
If you’re a foodie like me, Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook Cravings: Hungry For More is everything! Just like her original best-selling Cravings, this book is also filled with mouth-watering meals and inspiring food photography with craveable recipes like Pad Thai Carbonara, Crispy Coconut Chicken Tenders, Cheddar Chorizo Broccoli Rice, and Fluffy Corn Dogs.
Just a note…
This is Lina, Collin’s cooking and DIY sidekick. Today I’m sharing a couple of cookbooks I’m lovin’, because I love good FOOD! 😍 This isn’t a sponsored post, although if Chrissy Teigen saw this somehow it’d make my entire life! 🙌
What I love about this cookbook!
The recipes are simple, realistic, and instructions are very clear and easy to accomplish. I like that Chrissy offers easy substitutions and advice on where to find some of the specialty ingredients, and you can sense her cooking style is more relaxed, much like mine.
This isn’t another blah celebrity cookbook
Sometimes celeb cookbooks can be… well… a little boring! HA!
Cravings: Hungry for More is filled with funny humor from Chrissy and includes details about her sweet family and stories from her personal life. I wish I could hang out with her and her cute mom, who seems to be the inspiration for a lot of her Thai inspired cooking. I know she leads a glam celebrity life, but she seems super relatable, especially when it comes to eating, food, and motherhood in general.
I was hooked on Cravings from the beginning!
I’ve made a lot of the recipes from the original Cravings, and I enjoy them SO MUCH. I actually made this Dutch Baby Pancake the other day, and it’s one of my family’s favorite Sunday morning breakfasts. The full recipe is actually featured at Vogue.com if you’d like to check it out there!
I’ve also blogged about her amazing Savory Butternut Squash Soup and Dump and Done Ramen Noodle Salad in previous posts here on Hip2Save.
This Parmesan Minestrone with Chili Mayo Toasts was the first recipe I made from the new Cravings: Hungry for More book, and we absolutely loved it! I ate it as leftovers for lunch last week, and it’s so comforting and full of flavor. I’ll definitely be making this all winter long!
The second recipe I tried from Cravings: Hungry for More was this Carbonara Pad Thai. STOP EVERYTHING and make this delicious mash-up of Pad Thai and Carbonara with bacon and eggs. This idea may initially sound odd, but was a definite must-try recipe that my family deemed a winner! I cannot wait to make my way through all of the yummy recipes in this book!
Speaking of amazing, have you seen the new Cravings by Chrissy Teigen kitchen & tabletop line at Target? The brand features beautiful cookware, serving platters, kitchen utensils, and more! It’s also worth noting that Target’s version of Cravings: Hungry for More has exclusive content and extra recipes.
I purchased my book from Amazon, so I’m honestly not quite sure the exact difference, but I wanted to point it out in case you want that added content.
What a creative gift!
I think these cookbooks would make such great gifts for a bridal party, birthday, and (of course) for the holidays! Such a nice idea for someone who loves to cook or even for someone just learning. Wrap up both Cravings cookbooks with a set of Chrissy Teigen wood and silicone handle utensils as I did above for a thoughtful and fun gift!
