25 Chrissy Teigen Recipes We Look Forward to Trying Now That Her Cookbook ‘Cravings’ Is Available

Today’s the day, people: Chrissy Teigen’s highly-anticipated debut cookbook, Cravings, has officially hit the shelves (and changed from “pre-order” to “ORDER!” on Amazon!).

When it comes to celebrity cookbooks, Teigen’s is definitely the one we’ve been lusting over for some time now…and her Instagram account doesn’t help – Teigen has mastered the art of #foodporn, and has been posting generously delicious, salivating-worthy photos to the ‘gram for some time now (often with the help of her cutie husband John Legend).

Aside from being one of our favorite social media presences, the Sports Illustrated model also runs an appropriately named food blog, So Delushious, where she shares crave-worthy recipes straight from her cookbook as well as other (welcomed) ramblings from her sassy self.

For example, she most recently posted a recipe for Valentine’s -Day-After Yellow Cake Baked Oatmeal…which may sound odd to your delicate ears but in actuality is 100% genius.

I mean…come on:

And in case you’re wondering what a model is doing writing a cookbook (which, if you knew Teigen through social media at all, you’d already know that she loves to cook and eat and indulge and crave on the reg), Teigen clarifies what you will find and what you will not find in her cookbook in the intro:

It you’re expecting a model to write a cookbook full of diet recipes for you to perfect your bikini bod, I think you’ll be a little surprised here. These are recipes we love to indulge in with family and friends. Some more hearty than others, some even more hearty than the hearty ones. But every single recipe is something we love. Look, I don’t want to be one of those dead-inside laughing-with-a-salad chicks, and I don’t want to seem like one of those annoying, “I can eat anything I want anytime” chicks. It’s just that I wanted to be honest in this book about the kinds of food I love, the kinds of food I crave. I just have to find ways to make those cravings work with my day job (e.g., sometimes with a well-timed “f*ck it”).

Because we foodies here at Celebuzz! absolutely adore Teigen and have been literally counting down the days until today’s Cravings drop with one post in dedication to her after another, here are 25 Chrissy Teigen Recipes We Look Forward to Trying Now That Her Cookbook Is Available.
