Cravings: Hungry for More: A Cookbook ePUB

It’s a life of pancakes that remind you of blueberry pie, eating onion dip with your glam squad, banana bread that breaks the internet, and a little something called Pad Thai Carbonara. After two years of parenthood, falling in love with different flavors, and relearning the healing power of comfort food, this book is like Chrissy’s new edible diary:

• recipes for quick-as-a-snap meals (Pan-Seared Fish with Herby Browned Butter; Jalapeño Parmesan-Crusted Grilled Cheese)
• recipes for lighter, brighter, healthier-ish living (Roasted Carrot and Avocado Salad with Lime Dressing; Vegetable Noodles with Parm & Basil)
• recipes that, well, are gonna put you to bed, holding your belly (Skillet Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies; Sleepytime Stew & Cream Cheese Smashed Potatoes)

And all of these delicious meals will have you hungry for more.


This is a great book and Chrissy is an awesome recipe creator. Off the top of my head, I’ve made the clam chowder, garlic soy ribs, banana bread, and coconut chicken. I had actually been meaning to make clam chowder for a while, and prior to buying the book, I saw the recipe on an Instagram photo and pathetically zoomed in and made it. No regrets.

I’ve only tried a handful of recipes, and they all turned out very well, but our absolute favorite is the coconut chicken and the delicious dipping sauce. I could eat that sauce for breakfast! The banana bread was great. The clam chowder will be my go-to recipe; the clam juice addition made it taste fresh and cut the heaviness. The garlic soy ribs were good.

The OG Cravings was such a success that it’s impossible to follow. When you’re making a cookbook, especially your first, you want to put all of your best recipes in there (at least, I’d imagine). I feel like the OG Cravings is a more classic, authentic cookbook that is absolutely a kitchen must-have. I found the first cookbook more creative and motivating. I feel like there are a lot more steak, fish, and hard-to-find and/or expensive ingredients in here. The recipes may be a bit more sophisticated in general. However, paired with those recipes are some recipes that seem a bit like filler. Two nachos recipes, multiple grilled cheese recipes…you get the point.

Back to the positive: I like this cookbook and I’m sure every recipe I make will be delicious. It’s still exciting and creative. It still has food you want to eat in it. I’m excited for more Thai Mom recipes and happy with the amount of sweet potato recipes! I use this book more than I’ve used 99% of my others and everything has turned out well, so five stars from me!
