After buying her 2nd book first and absolutely loving it I decided I would get this one so I had both, although there’s some really nice recipes in this book I liked the 2nd best as it had more variety, I feel there was more fish dishes in this book and I’m not a huge fan of fish but overall I was pleased with a few recipes I found and I’m still trying new ones in the book.
I brought this book for my mother but ended up buying myself one too. Really fantastic recipes but what really sets it apart from so many other cookbooks out there is that I read through the entire thing in one sitting genuinely laughing out loud. Great delicious food with brilliant and charmingly honest hilarious write ups. I really hope she makes more!
I’m a big fan of Chrissy and was curious to see what this book would be like given that she always posts amazing looking dishes being cooked on social media. Absolutely doesn’t disappoint, have tried four of the recipes so far and all have been delicious and easy to follow. Amusing to read as well, she has taken the time to tell the story of where the dish came from/ why she likes it before each recipe. Definitely recommend!
As someone who follows Chrissy online, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I was not disappointed. This is a great book for home cooks that is simple to follow and always delicious. I have made several recipes and they have all been successful and delicious. Between this and her other book, there is plenty of cooking to be done!
This is first and foremost a *fun* book to browse through. The introductions to the dishes are witty and appealing. I'm a bit put off by how unhealthy many of the dishes are (loads of saturated fats and salt, some quite low on veggies), but for fun and decadent indulgence cooking for adults, this is worth getting. I like that there are Thai-food recipes sprinkled in as well.
Love Chrissy and this book felt like bringing a bit of her into my home. The pictures are drool worthy and the text very much real life. I’d love to tell you how good the recipes are but I haven’t got that far yet
