She's already won us over with her chic pregnancy style and witty social media presence. Now swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen is winning over our stomachs too by proving her killer cooking skills in the new Cravings cookbook.
Cravings is filled with "recipes for all the food you want to eat," from Southern-cooked meals to eclectic Asian fusion. Ironically Teigen was inspired to create the cookbook after posting pics of homemade food on social media — a place where she's well-known for sharing funny and (occasionally) salty thoughts. It only seemed fitting, then, to share some recipes that will satisfy those "sweet-and-salty" hankerings that happen all too often!
This isn't your average casserole. Instead, this French toast recipe comes with "magical powers" that are sure to please your "inner-fat-kid madness," as Teigen puts it. The bread acts as your base and will need to soak overnight for total deliciousness. To top it all off, the recipe calls for Frosted Flakes mixed with salt and butter (aka our three favorite things).
Prep time: 15 minutes | Refrigerate and rest time: 6 hours 30 minutes | Bake Time: 50-55 minutes | Total time: 7 hours 35 minutes
For the base
For the topping
For those smaller cravings, Teigen included a page of "Sh*t On Toast" featuring eight simple but flavorful recipes to top your toast. The beauty of these easy recipes is that they can be enjoyed all day, from breakfast to snack time to appetizers before dinner.
Prep time: 5 minutes
