42 Reasons Why Every Foodie Should Follow Chrissy Teigen on Instagram
We are already completely obsessed with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend as a couple, but I'm particularly a big fan of Chrissy's, because she's a serious cook with a cookbook on the way. Fearless in the kitchen, the Sports Illustrated model constantly shares photos and videos of homemade meals on her Instagram account — and never without a dash of wit. If you're a foodie, you really need to follow her on Instagram and check out her blog So Delushious, a place for "personal random ramblings from a girl who loves bacon and can't be fat." These are 42 times we wanted the self-proclaimed #soupmaster to cook for us.
