What a perfect title!! This looks to be the most fun and most useable cookbook I’ve bought in quite a while. The foods are something you really want to eat. Recipes seem totally doable. The photos are wonderful, whether speaking of the food or Chrissy and her hunky husband, John Legend.

Here’s some recipes I love already: Super Tuna Melt, Hasselback Potatoes, Chicken Noodle Soup, Scrambled Eggs with Burst Cherry Tomatoes.

Here’s some I want to try: Italian Sausage Meatloaf, Cobb Salad with Honey Mustard Ranch, Chunky Creamy Mushroom Soup, Lemony Argula Spaghetti Cacio E Pepe, Risotto with Porcini, Mushrooms, and Peas, Perfect Seared Scallops with Warm Corn Salad, and oh, so many more!

This cookbook is a hot #1 on the bestseller list. Lots of interesting comments from Chrissy -dare I say cute- and she shares recipes from other family members: her Dad, her Thai mom Pepper and husband John. The whole book is freakin’ fun.

One critic said the book was lively and fun to read. I totally agree. Plus the food is fun and accessible! (I’m tired of cookbooks with difficult, expensive, time-consuming recipes.) So Chrissy brings it on! Today I give this cookbook four stars. Check back in a year and we will see if I still rate it so highly.

Yes, I used the word fun way to many times. But….it’s totally amazing FUN!
