In extreme anticipation of the arrival of Chrissy Teigen‘s new cookbook, we have been holding on to every shred of detail she shares on the matter. And the latest bit of news is that even some of her husband John Legend‘s recipes will make it into the book.

“Something fun about the book is we’ll have his take and then we’ll have my take,” the supermodel told New York Magazine. “For example, everybody in his family and all of our friends love his mac and cheese, but I think they only love it because ‘John Legend is cooking it,’ like, ‘Oh my God! This is amazing!’ ”

“But it’s a little thick for me — I like a creamy mac,” she adds. “So I’m making my version, too.”

But while Teigen is the one putting in all the work testing recipes “two, three, four times” each, she says, “of course everyone is still going to love his more.”

The Lip Sync Battle co-host also reassured the magazine that everything in the book is “stuff that we truly love to eat.”

“It’s mostly, like, our household staples, the things I love to make for John, things I love cooking for our friends for Super Bowl Sunday, things for girls’ nights, which I have all the time,” she says. “Everything in the book is stuff we have once or twice a month, so it’s tried and true.”

And now, the waiting continues.

Sorry, Mac and cheese I wouldn’t even consider food. Disgusting and that goes in a cook book? They seem to have a very low standard!!

W T F is going on with her face? It is the excess of botox or W T H ?? It seems is falling apart and like she has glass eyes. lol

Sue d on

She nauseates me. I give their marriage 3 years.

Morgan on

She’s painful to look at while watching lip sync battle. Out of all women, they chose her. 😒

Mark on

How she is a model I will never know. I know I know, it’s not up to me. You’ve shown your support. She has a horrible fake exaggerated that she forces out all the time. And she’s not pretty or hot. At all.

I speak the truth on

She is just so not pretty at all.

I stopped watching LipSync battle because Chrissy Teigen ruins it. It’s very painful to look at her when the camera shows her.

Lauren on

What is this woman known for, besides being a singer’s wife? I mean, what exactly does she do for a living? Internet celebrity? If she’s a supermodel then by god, the supermodels in the 80’s are goddesses! This Chrissy Teigen chick is not even normal looking. Her face, what’s wrong with it?
