This is a gorgeous recipe book, and it is great to look through. The personal stories are touching and the photographs are amazing. I think it’s tough to follow Cravings, which was such a surprise hit. These recipes are fine, but there was just something more appealing about the recipes in the first book. They felt more authentic.
This book feels a bit forced, and a lot less like these are recipes you could see Chrissy making in her kitchen and more like the recipes people expect her to make in her kitchen because she has grown and matured since Cravings was released.
Overall it is a good selection of recipes. But I wouldn’t consider it a must have for every cook’s collection of recipe books.
Cravings: Hungry for More takes us further into Chrissy’s kitchen . . . and life. 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; recipes for lighter, brighter, healthier-ish living; and recipes that, well, are gonna put you to bed, holding your belly. And it will have you hungry for more.
