Cravings by Chrissy Teigen


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 t...

Reviews Cravings

  • Laura
    Full disclosure: I love Chrissy Teigen. I’m telling you..I have an obsession with her. She is so freaking hilarious, cooks incredible food, speaks her mind no matter what, and is one gorgeous chick (not that this part matters in the slightest..honestly). I admire her. I think my boyfriend gets sick of me talking about her or saying “omg..guess what Teigs just said!” Yes..I have my own personal nickname for her, and she has no clue who I am....

    Chrissy Teigen might be a hot mess. On publishing this cookbook she accidentally put her cell phone number in it and didn't realize it until hundreds of calls later. She seems to know how to laugh things off and she is extremely likeable in this cookbook. I wasn't a hundred percent sure who she was until I got this book but I'm on the liking her side of the fence. Shut up haters.She takes her love of cooking and eating and even though she is hawt...

    It's been a while since I've seen a cookbook that's as beautiful as 'Cravings.' In fact, even if the recipes were total crap, I'd still enjoy this simply for the fact that it's such a beautiful book just to look at. I wouldn't just have been attracted to this book because it was written by a celebrity. Usually, that's good enough reasoning for me NOT to check out something. But after hearing such good things about Cravings, I decided to give it a...

    86 Recipes Completed: List Below w/RatingsWow, what an incredible year of recipes! My personal goal for 2017 was to cook 50%-80% of each section in Chrissy Teigen's FIRST cookbook. I say first because I am absolutely sure she will come out with a second (and third, etc.) Her passion for her recipes is evident on every single page. Laugh-out-loud funny, Chrissy can make you want to try even the most questionable recipes (hot cucumber soup anybody?...

    I checked out this cookbook after seeing one of its appetizing recipes on Pinterest. I'm not that familiar with Chrissy Teigen, but based on this cookbook, she's crazy photogenic and knows how to cook. I was immediately drawn to about 16 of the 94 beautifully photographed recipes, which I realize is a pretty low percentage, but their quality created a sense of urgency that got me in the kitchen the following day and of course I can't dismiss the ...
  • Kelsie
    I drooled and laughed the whole time!Every recipe sounds delicious and easy to execute. But what really made me love this book is how hilarious the recipe descriptions are! Chrissy Teigen understands the struggle of needing that bikini bod but totally needing some cheesy, carby, goodness! Preach girl
  • Rose
    chrissy teigen, i love you. i've seriously been a fan of hers since i saw her on a special on the cooking channel, like centuries ago. i was so surprised when she brought out john legend, because they are polar opposites?! but ugh, they're adorable... *off topic* but anyway, HER COOKING. Definitely not for anyone looking for healthy eats, but trust me.. all of it was fucking delicious. i'm not the biggest fan of cooking, but i do love eating sooo...
  • Emily Paster
    I checked this out of the library, as I often do with cookbooks, to see if it was worth purchasing. I admit, I'm skeptical of celebrity cookbooks but had heard that this one had genuinely good recipes. Well, perhaps it does. Not that I wanted to make any of them. I was so put off by Teigen's expletive-laden, idiotic headnotes and the constant attempts to be just hilariously funny, that I didn't even bother to attempt the recipes. I returned it.
  • meghann
    I finished this about a week ago, but I wanted to try some of the recipes before writing up my review. I love Chrissy Teigen. The girl is my spirit animal. In fact, I was watching Lip Sync Battle while making the second recipe from this book. I'm that awesome.The humor in this cookbook was an unexpected delight. You feel like you're sitting in Chrissy's kitchen while she cooks. There is cussing, so it's a bit awkward when your grandmother asks yo...
  • Laura Harrison
    This is not your typical celebrity cookbook. It is really good! Teigen is creative, funny and you can really tell she loves food and her recipes. I would be surprised if she didn't write another cookbook in the future. This is truly her thing.
  • Yoda
    Chrissy is so fucking funny in her descriptions.
  • Coleen (The Book Ramblings)
    Chrissy Teigen has cooked up a No. 1 Best Seller with Cravings: Recipes for What You Want to Eat. Some people may know Chrissy as a model, the co-host of Lip Sync Battle, or even being a part of FABLife, but one thing is for sure, everyone knows her love for food and cooking is endless! Her blog, So Delushious, is where she started sharing recipes, her rambles, and adventures in the kitchen. Now, through 240 pages, and over 100 recipes, you’ll ...
  • Natalie
    Front to back, every word, every recipe. I have been trying and loving the recipes that she has shared on her blog for many moons and months, and have waited hard and long for this cookbook. MARRY ME, CHRISSY.
  • Shari Henry
    I checked this book out thanks to a recommendation from someone I know and love, and someone whose cooking recommendations I trust completely. Otherwise, I was a bit skeptical about a super model's knowing enough about cooking to have a lot to offer. Besides, really, on top of being beautiful and rich and married to a world famous musician, was it even fair that this woman knows a thing or two about cooking as well?Chrissy Teigen puts a fresh new...
  • Jamie Canaves
    The recipes I've made so far like the lemony arugula spaghetti cacio e pepe are delicious! The images are beautiful and what I was not expecting was this book is 100% Teigen--meaning it's hilarious! From drunk stories that end in her needing fake bangs for 2 weeks to a mac & cheese war with her husband this is the first cookbook I actually read cover to cover. Also, I am 100% here for a Teigen memoir or book of essays.
  • Laura
    I picked this up because it's super popular. Teigen is likeable and the book is very fun (it's also beautifully shot). The book includes recipes for craveable foods, pretty much covering all meals but desert. The recipes are sound, and she includes prep and cooking times for each, as well as some variations where applicable.A lot of these weren't that revolutionary for me. I've got an awesome mac & cheese recipe; while her wings are good, so are ...

    When I went shopping for books back home a few months ago, I have to admit that I was wishing I would find Chrissy Teigen's cookbook, and I did! It was such a happy moment! The book is attractive and sexy just like her!Chrissy shares her love for food, her family and origins in every page, the photos are breathtaking and seem so much fun. I want to be her best friend!I flagged a few recipes to make in the next two weeks. I'm so excited about the ...
  • Shantel
    Ok, so now that I've actually tried a few recipes, let me just say, this shit is DELICIOUS. I actually read through the whole book, tabbing pages of recipes that looked especially good to me, and it was a fun read. Chrissy has included lots of anecdotes and histories throughout the book that really enhance the overall experience (and she's genuinely hilarious). Some of the recipes are more difficult than others, of course, but none that I've seen...
  • Cait
    Crissy Teigen is amazing, and this cookbook is wonderful
  • MaryannC. Book Freak
    Great book filled with great recipes, one of my faves.
  • Kortney
    I'm a huge fan of Chrissy Teigen! She seems like so much fun, and so is this cookbook. The recipes aren't amazing, but they are realistic. And the book is beautiful!
  • Leigh Kramer
    I’ve already made the Vegetable Tortilla Stew and can confirm it's delicious and easy. And I will be making so many more of these recipes asap! Teigen has a great sense of humor, as evidenced by her recipe descriptions.FYI there is language about diets and weight gain, as well as drug and alcohol references, throughout, so exercise caution if these things are potentially triggering.
  • Mignon DeLarre
    YumI think I'd actually buy a hard copy of this book. Her recipes look really good, but it's her stories before each recipe that make this worth it. I don't think I've ever laughed so much while reading a cookbook.

  • Tima
    Chrissy Teigen, a model and celebrity, has a deep love for food. She filled this book with all of her favorite foods that she enjoys not only cooking, but eating as well. The book is peppered with witty comments, pictures of delicious food, glimpses into her life and family, and amazingly easy to execute recipes. The one thing this book doesn't have is desserts. Chrissy isn't a baker and so only put the things that she enjoys cooking into the boo...
  • Sarah
    Chrissy Teigen has grown on me considerably lately - she seems funny, doesn't take shit and promotes a healthy and happy family life - all things I can get behind. While I guiltily love celebrity entertainment I'm always very skeptical when the A list roll out their cookbooks or whatever their latest product is -but with that said, and skepticism in mind, I really love this cookbook. It is a beautiful, funny cookbook packed with really enticing r...
  • Emma
    chrissy is my homegirl, forever and always. the ramen salad is stupid easy and a great thing for potlucks (i recc putting the whole thing in a big ziploc and letting it marinate that way), and my family will never not put ham and cheese in our green bean casserole again. the mac was FINE, not my fave (although i got a lot of pleasure putting slices of american cheese in a pot). i've made the breakfast cake with fruit one several times and am alwa...
  • Lindsay Duggan
    I saw an article about this book on buzzfeed and who hasn't heard of Chrissy Teigen so I decided to check it out. I haven't read a cookbook before so wasn't really sure how to rate this because I don't know how it compares to others, but I really enjoyed reading through this one. Oh my gosh, I want to make almost every recipe in this book and can't wait to give it a try!! My only criticism is that some recipes seem really heavy and rich, but I gu...
  • Rebecca Raeske-Grinch
    When I consider buying a cookbook, I tell myself that it has to have at least 5 recipes that I would consider making. I think I hit that many after the first two sections. I went out, bought this book and flagged the heck out of its recipes. I am looking forward to making them. I am also convinced that Chrissy Teigen is my spirit animal.
