31 Things Chrissy Teigen Has Made on Instagram That Will Make Your Mouth Water
I don't know about you, but I religiously check Chrissy Teigen's Instagram feed for two things: pictures of her two adorable children, Miles and Luna (AKA mini Chrissy and John), and mouth-watering photos of food. And, when I'm lucky, I get a little of both in a single snap! While I've gone ahead and purchased all of her cookbooks in the hopes that I'll be able to make dishes that even barely resemble those in the Teigen-Legend household, sometimes I have to settle for just scrolling through her food heaven social media.
From fish to french fries to pasta, not only does Chrissy know how to make it all, but she knows how to make it well. And while you can find most of the recipes in her published cookbooks, I love seeing the final products come together in real time. After all, even Chef Chrissy herself has to go through a little trial-and-error before striking publishable gold. So, whether you're looking for a light snack or indulgent dinner, check out these 25 dishes that Chrissy Teigen has made on Instagram that will totally make your mouth water.
