Cookbook Review

Best of Cravings Cookbook

I decided two years ago to cook from Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook cravings. I decided this on a whim because it was the best cookbook of the year according to Goodreads. I have in the past two years cooked everything I care to make from the cookbook and below I will share with you the recipes I see as worth having. Through this cookbook, I learned to trust myself in the kitchen, to modify recipes as needed to suit my taste, and that my taste is not the same as Chrissy’s. As I continue to cook, I am learning not to try being anyone other than myself. Out of her recipes the following are the ones I like as is without changes.

Pull-Apart Buttermilk Biscuits with Sausage Gravy

Biscuit topped with sausage gravy

Believe it or not this was the first time I had biscuits and gravy and I found the combination to be sweet and salty and delicious.

Prosciutto Crips

I do not have a picture, but I find this short recipe useful and the prosciutto turns crispy every time.

Cobb Salad with Honey-Mustard Ranch Dressing

Salad with bacon, chicken, corn, avocado, and dressing
This is the kind of salad that doesn’t feel like a salad.

This salad is amazing. I love the dressing and I would eat this everyday.

Pepper’s Scalloped Potatoes

I do not know what it is, but I just loved these potatoes and the way the ham and bacon meld with the potato is just great. My one piece of advice is this is massive so you may need more than one pan. I know I had to split it between two dishes.

Fried Sliced Garlic

I found this to be another useful recipe and you can use the leftover oil as garlic infused oil.

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

I am pretty sure this one was so good, my husband barely got any. Oops. I found these to be everything you get at a restaurant in the comfort of your own home. I did much prefer the satay sauce to the other sauce.

Roasted Garlic and Roasted Garlic Oil

Another useful recipe I will come back to again and again.

Honey Balsamic Glaze

A simple way to spice up your balsamic and make all your salads delectable.

Sweet Potato Gnocci

We enjoyed this one quite a bit and made it more than once. I found them to be less scary and quite delicious.
