“Chrissy’s Cravings is hands down the best cookbook I own. Literally everything I’ve made from it is next level amazing! The instructions aren’t difficult to follow, the ingredients can be found at most grocery stores and it is so much fun to read (the pictures are really beautiful too)! Cravings is absolutely the perfect cookbook for other beginners and experienced cooks.” – emilyalisabeth.

“It’s not only full of amazing recipes, beautiful food photos (along with photos of her and John), and helpful tips, it’s also funny as all hell! I love reading all the stories before the recipes because I feel like she’s just having a conversation with all of us.” –lorenf4e9798c06.

“Nothing has any crazy ingredients that you have to go five different specialty grocery stores to find. In fact, if you cook regularly you probably already have everything in your pantry/fridge. The food is delicious, relatively simple, and genuinely the things you crave. Some favorites of ours have been the honey butter chicken wings, blue cheese and honey balsamic brussell sprouts, parmesan skillet eggs (a brunch HIT with our friends), and lettuce wraps (beat the pants off P.F. Changs). Plus, each recipe has a delightfully hilarious anecdote from Chrissy, which, if you’re a big fan of hers like me, you’ll definitely enjoy and relate to.” –Molly McCormack. Facebook.
