Super Tuna Melt

I LOVE tuna. Tuna out of the can, tuna sandwiches, tuna helper, etc. I just love it. This recipe is a godsend because it puts together some of my favorite things to eat. Tuna, tomatoes, bread, and melted cheese! I’ve never been a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches because I don’t like toasted bread (I like my bread soft). But I can deal with the hard bread for this recipe. And quite honestly, I think it would be hard to eat this if you didn’t toast it because it could just fall apart. I’m telling you… you NEED this cookbook.

Spicy Cajun Sausage, Peppers and Cabbage

The other night I tried making a recipe from Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook.

I made a few adjustments to the recipe and the directions.

The recipe calls for one red bell pepper, but I had to omit that because the red bell pepper that I had was bad and I forgot to pick up another one. The directions require a really large skillet. I don’t consider mine to be that large so I did the first half of the recipe in the biggest pan that I have and then switched everything over to a really big pot (not a stockpot though). I did that so I could fit everything into one dish without making a huge mess in my kitchen. Unfortunately, I can’t be too specific with the list of ingredients and instructions but I can tell you that even with the adjustments that I made, the food was lovely. Continue reading

Cravings by Chrissy Teigen

One of my birthday gifts this year was Cravings by Chrissy Teigen. My mom bought it for me because she knows that I’ve been learning the ropes in the kitchen via Pinterest. I’ve never had a cookbook before so this is my very first one. And I’m also a big fan of Chrissy Teigen. I’m super duper excited to try these recipes, many of which I have never even thought about making before. Although I love my recipes board on Pinterest, having an actual book with pages and pictures that I can look at is going to be awesome. I won’t have to scroll and screenshot images on my phone or worry about my touching my phone with food on my fingers. Eventually I’ll make my own cookbook binder with all of my favorite Pinterest recipes but I haven’t had the time to invest in that right now. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to post a link to the recipes like I usually do because that could get me in trouble but I can post a link to purchase the book. If you like Chrissy Teigen’s personality and sense of humor and you also like to cook, I would suggest buying this for yourself. Her write-ups are funny and hopefully the recipes are delicious too. I guess I’ll find out soon enough…
