I’ve been in a serious recipe rut lately. I feel like I haven’t tried anything new for a while and I just keep making the same stuff. My boyfriend and I flipped through the first Chrissy Teigen cookbook, Cravings and marked which recipes we were interested in trying. First up, mac & cheese!
This is so good! It definitely makes a lot but I prefer it like that. Okay, I’m trying not to be one of those bloggers that just rambles on when you just want to find the actual recipe because that drives me nuts. I’ve added a picture of Chrissy Teigen’s recipe and then underneath I’ll put what I did differently.
So I didn’t really want to be getting all kinds of different cheeses to grate because I was feeling a little lazy. We picked up those packs of shredded cheese that have a few different types in it. We got a pack that had three kinds and a pack that had another four so we ended up using seven kinds of cheeses. I didn’t put it all in but saved a little to sprinkle across the top just like the recipe called for. This is definitely a recipe that’s heavy on the diary. If you are lactose intolerant you can swap them out. I also skipped out on the bread crumbs on top but I’ll add that next time!
Another thing that we noticed is that you should let this sit a little once it comes out of the oven. We didn’t wait before scooping it out so it was pretty runny. Letting it sit allows it to.. I don’t want to say harden but be less runny? Let it solidify? You know what I’m trying to say!
This is the perfect dish for fall/winter but I’m not going to lie, I would eat this year round. You can eat it as your meal but it also makes for a good side dish. So far I’ve tried a couple of Chrissy Teigen’s recipes and I’m straight up obsessed. There are two cookbooks currently and I have both! There is a third coming out but I haven’t seen when. I already know I’ll be getting it though. I also love that she includes a little blurb with each recipe.
I’ve already reviewed Chrissy Teigen’s Roto Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe if you want to check that one out too! I’ve made it multiple times already. Its quick, easy, and tastes so good!
Have you guys tried any of the recipes in Cravings?
