Now that the wedding chaos is over I finally have time to get back into normal life.
I’m gonna take it slow getting back into this blogging thing but know that I have TONS of wedding related things to share and a new Influenster product!
First I want to focus on this cook book. I’m going to tag this under product review and recipe bc well it’s not really a recipe but it is related and after all that’s what I’m after.
I received Chrissy Teigans Cravings cookbook from my cousin at my bridal shower and immediately marked every recipe I wanted to try. I have become kind of obsessed with her over the recent years because she seems to be so laid back and fun. She’s a close second to Beyoncé in my mind 😜
One of the most appealing things about the book is the variety and the not so good for you recipes. My first two must haves were the Mac n cheese and French toast casserole but I would guess I have a good 30 or so recipes marked to try.
I wanted to do this write up because unfortunately…. as much as I hate to say it, I was let down by the macaroni and cheese recipe. I LOVE CREAMY MAC AND GARLIC! What is wrong with me 😢
My husband and I spent two great weeks in Thailand. After a few days all I wanted was CHEESE!! I literally was having dreams of coming home to make this and would talk about it daily. Maybe I built up the hype too much? Maybe I did something wrong in the process but this Mac n cheese just wasn’t cheesy enough for me.
I’m not 100% sure but everything looked right and I followed directions. The recipe was a little too much cream and not enough cheese in my opinion.
I literally felt like something was wrong with me. I googled “didn’t like Chrissy Teigans Mac N Cheese” to make sure I wasn’t alone.
Well …apparently I am alone 😑 but I did see that there is a John Vs. Chrissy Mac and Cheese battle so I have been inspired. She said everyone compliments his so much but that she doesn’t get it bc it should be creamy!! I SO agree but now, because my husband loves baked Mac n cheese and we were sort of let down, I’m going to have to try the other side.
Despite choosing one of his songs as our first dance, I am not one of those girls who swoons over John. I prefer to worship Chrissy bc we all know who really keeps who on track and together in a relationship.
This is a really hard thing for me to accept that I didn’t like something of hers. The only thing to make it better is to hope I don’t like his either 😆 but I’m on a mission to find my favorite and forever Mac N Cheese so I can’t discriminate.
I’ll be back with an update on my Mac N Cheese adventure and I’ll let you know how John ends up in the running.
I do want to say that just because it didn’t work out with the Mac n cheese, we did love the meatloaf and the stovetop porkchops so the book is a hit in our household.
I still have high hopes for the French toast casserole which will be on our next grocery list. ☺️
Anyways- what I really came for. What’s YOUR go to Mac N Cheese recipe? have you tried Cravings? What was your favorite?
