Just gonna say it: I’m a Chrissy Teigen super-fan. You could even call her my celeb crush. I met her IRL a couple years ago at an event for a vodka she was promoting, and she was every bit as down to earth as she lets on. Tossing back vod sods, she even took a glam shot with me and my co-worker like we were all best friends.
So, naturally, I was first in line to nab a copy of Chrissy Teigen’s second cookbook Cravings: Hungry for More. And after flipping through the gorgeous recipe photos, I fell in love with Chrissy all over again. Shake and Bake Chicken with Hot Honey? Creamy Tomato Soup with Peppery Parmesan Crisps? Tom Yum Noodles? Swoon, one thousand times over.
Needless to say, I was very excited to see if her recipes taste as incredible as they look. I decided to test out her blueberry cream cheese pancakes recipe because I’ve cooked a lot of flapjacks in my time and because, well, I really wanted to lick the page. Here, I walk you through my maple-syrup-filled journey.
