August 2018 Cookbook Clique

CRAVINGS!  We all have ’em, right?!  Like, right now, I’m craving a big, juicy steak.  Maybe a baked potato.  Oooohh, how about a milkshake too?

Okay, so Chrissy Teigen knows we all have cravings and she knows how irresistible cravings can be so she went out and gave us a whole cookbook full of craveable food.  This month’s cookbook clique recommendation is Cravings by Chrissy Teigen.  And her next book (already pre-ordered, thank you Amazon!), Cravings: Hungry for More comes out on September 18th.  I seriously cannot wait.

Two years ago, this cookbook was in the Popsugar Must-Have Box and I literally started a subscription just to get this book.  Even though I could just order the book from Amazon. It was probably just an excuse I made in my head to sign up for the subscription box.  Anyway, as soon as this book arrived, I was smitten.  Almost every recipe sounded like exactly what I wanted to eat right at that moment and the pictures are deliciously messy and perfect.  I love Chrissy’s funny and witty writing style.  I spent a whole month cooking recipes from the book and documenting it on Instagram.  Don’t judge my pictures too much…they are embarrassingly bad but hey, we all gotta start somewhere.

Her cookbook has spawned many recipes on my site:

I’ve also made the Cheesy Cheeseless Scrambled Eggs with Burst Tomatoes, Il Buco-Style Kale Salad, the Lemony Arugula Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe, the Sour Cream and Broccoli Baked Potato Cakes…

The Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Hawaiian Pizza Jalapeño Poppers, the Crab, Cream Cheese and Scallion Wontons, Stretchy Artichoke, Spinach and Buffalo Chicken Dip, the Roasted Jalapeño and Chorizo Queso, Armadillo Cheesy Garlic Bread, King’s Hawaiian BLPTs (one of my absolute favorites!!)…

The Roasted Mushrooms, the Pineapple-Grilled Short Ribs, BTI (Better Than Ina’s) Roast Chicken and Vegetables and she inspired me to try a Tuna Melt and LOVE IT.  Everything I’ve tried from Cravings has been absolutely delicious.  Bucket list item: Cook all the recipes from both her cookbooks before I die.

Next month’s cookbook recommendation probably won’t be so involved, but this is the first month of this new series on the site so I had to pick something about which I felt very strongly…and lovingly.  SO. MUCH. LOVE. FOR. THIS. COOKBOOK.

Also, where are all my make-up lovers?!  Love this glow palette collab between Becca Cosmetics & Chrissy!
