  1. Just review the book and the recipes from Amazon. I doesn’t look bad. I do love cook books.

  2. You had me at SWAP! I’m a hopeful wait-lister. Is that a word? Will we be given guidelines for swapping once we’re in the club? I noticed people seeking out items not normally found in sub boxes, or offering to outright sell items. As a boring rule follower, I’m curious.

    P.S. If Suzanne Somers can sell a cook book, anyone can.

    • Suzanne Somers was training to become a chef before she became an actress.

  3. I would be more excited if I didn’t just get this book for my birthday. It’s great! I love her and her hubby. They photos and commentary is great and those recipes are totally things we all crave!

    • I am so happy to be getting this, I really was buying it. I can’t wait to get it….but I must now because I don’t need two, haha. I watch FABLife and was laughing my butt off when she announced she had to change her #. I can’t believe the publishers did not notice their mess up. Did you notice it? Just curious if it’s actually that noticeable.

  4. meh. i am getting rid of just about all cookbooks – why use them when there are millions online.

  5. We eat Paleo so nope I’m not excited about this!

  6. Mmmmm I hope there will be better items. I’m sure it’ll be great, and have read from reviews that it is great, but I have been vegetarian for more than a decade so I really can’t eat anything with meat, no exceptions or I’ll get sick. It might be nice if there are ways to convert the meat recipes to veggie friendly, but otherwise I may just gift this.

  7. Hey If anyone wants the10 dollar coupon for the tampons just send me ur email and I’ll send you the code kathy

    • Hi Kathy,

      I’m pretty sure the Lola tampon code is generic rather than unique. In other words everyone got the same code.

      • I think it is a unique code. Mine has 5 random numbers.

      • I have the same number in both of the 2 boxes I received.

        • thank you!

  8. I keep kosher, so I assume about 1/2 the recipes will be not something I can make. I’ll probably look through it, and if nothing strikes my fancy I’ll pass it onto my son, who loves to cook.

    • Me too! This will probably be worthless to me but I don’t think it’s a bad item, just not for me.

  9. I almost bought this because I saw her demo some yummy Thai recipes last week. Very excited! I love cookbooks!

  10. At first I thought, ‘Another cookbook, meh!’ But after reading some reviews on Amazon I’m really looking foreward to this.
    Food porn AND funny? Yes please!
    I’ve never heard of Chrissy Teigen before so have no preconceived ideas about how annoying/womderful she might be.

  11. I saw the spoiler email and started an argument with Popsugar in my head “you have the nerve to put out an April spoiler and I haven’t even received my March box yet?!” but then a few hours later I received tracking for my March box AND my Resort box! Shut me right on up! But anyways, the book is cool. It wouldn’t make me subscribe if I wasn’t already a subscriber but I am and I’m happy with it. I know I wouldn’t have purchased it but I’ll read it, I like Chrissy Teigen. I think the point of these boxes (or at least some of them) is to offer people items they may not buy for themselves. Otherwise, we’d just go buy them.

    • My feelings exactly!!!! Still haven’t received the March box…..interesting that I was charged promptly on the 1st but my tracking info has just said processing….more then a bit annoyed.

  12. I try to eat clean and my finance was just diagnosed with diabetes so not sure how useful this cookbook will be for me. And I don’t know much about Christy and her qualifications as far as writing a cookbook but I’m not going to pass judgment on het ability until I read her book.

    • I’m also diabetic and eat low carb. I saw some things I could definitely modify, and others that would be ok for diabetics! I can help modify if you want!! Hope your fiancé can find a good doc that can help him get things under control. It’s not the best club to join, but it is a well researched one with a lot of support.

  13. I am just wondering if this book is going to have any healthy recipes – I am trying to eat clean to get into shape… And if it doesn’t I won’t be using it…

  14. her face is photoshopped too extensively on the cover – it doesn’t even look like her. and do we really need her cleavage for a cookbook? i don’t understand the merits of a so called “celebrity” cookbook, what makes her qualified?

    • She actually went to culinary school, before she became famous.

      • what school was that? i did an internet search and could not find that information. typically, a celebrity lends their name, and there is a true culinary expert who writes and puts together the recipes, in this case it is adeena sussman.

        • Not sure about the culinary school but she has been on a few Cooking Channel shows before. She is friends with one of the girls I like on there. So apparently she is passionate about food, not sure about your definition of qualified though. Some of the most famous of chefs on tv didn’t go to culinary school (Mario Batali, Ina Garten, Gordon Ramsey…that’s all I know). Either way, Christy Teigan has exploded here as of lately. She’s everywhere.

          • She has always put in interviews where she attended school. I loved your comment too. I am putting an article link in my reply but I’m not sure it will be allowed. I happened to want her cookbook and planned on buying it. I watch FABLife and she does a lot of the food segments and our doing them with guests they have. A lot are very healthy. She’s never claimed to be an expert but rather she loves food. She turned down doing a cookbook a few years ago until she was ready. She actually makes me want to try things…lol.

  15. Ugh… I don’t cook, so this is kind of a bust for me… I really need to get on the wait list for swap site, so I can start freeing up my space lol

    • Do it! It took me a long time to start swapping but I’m so glad I finally did. It’s awesome to have things I don’t want or need go to someone who wants them and to get things I will really use in return.

      • If you want to be on this website swap sometime soon I would suggest putting your name in now. I have been on the waitlist for almost 2 months now. I want to swap my POPSUGAR must have watch! 🙂

        • We’re opening up the waitlist tonight – watch for an email! 🙂

          • Liz-you are a great moderator! Do I have a box addiction; or do I have a mysubscriptionaddition ? 😉

          • Haha thanks!! 🙂

          • Just joined the waitlist! Thanks for the advice. And thank you Liz for this amazing site!!!

          • 🙂 Thanks!

  16. Oh yay! I would take a Chrissy Teigen cookbook over a Goop cookbook any day 🙂

  17. I wish Chrissy Teigen would curate a whole box. I would spend money on that.

    • ME TOO!! ?

  18. What pastry chef book?? I want one!!

  19. YES!!! I love her! She’s been doing previews of the cookbook on her Instagram for so long. I can’t wait to get this!

  20. I was just about to buy this! I am so excited!

  21. Literally SO obsessed!!! I LOVE Chrissy Teigen and had been meaning to get this book for weeks now. Best spoiler EVER!!! Gah! <3

  22. I had to look up who this girl was – NOT WORK APPROPRIATE!
    But that aside, a cookbook isn’t enough to get me excited for the next box.

    • THANK YOU for the nsfw warning lol.. i was just about to google it at work lol

  23. Yay! I was debating whether or not to get this, now I don’t have to.

  24. Yayyyy! This is so great!

  25. If anyone follows her on Instagram, you’ll know that Chrissy is all about feeding her man hearty meals – this is not your typical model diet 🙂 Unless I’m mistaken her cookbook is similar. For those on the fence, I would definitely recommend check out what she cooks for John Legend on her social media pages, she’s been making my mouth water for months and I can’t wait to try some of her recipes out for myself!

  26. Agh so excited to get this. I love following her on IG and SC. Def. hoping to get a signed copy!!! Love getting books in my subscription boxes!!!

  27. I love this from the bottom of my heart! A book that I wanted and wanted a physical and not a digital copy of? Check, Check.

  28. I am excited for this cookbook (not that I need another one)! It is something I wouldn’t normally buy for myself but would be happy if someone gifted it to me – if that makes sense.

  29. Oh, this is so funny. I am vegan and I have over 100 vegan cookbooks and I love Chrissy but I didn’t want to buy her book because she isn’t vegan and I knew the book contained flesh recipes and I’d never spend money on a book like that…. so this way I can still have it without actually buying it.. perfect! Hoping I can just veganize many of the recipes.

  30. YES YES YES, I love cooking so this is perfect for me. I just looked at a sample of the book online and it seems informative and comical. Recipes are pretty straightforward, which I appreciate compared to the ridiculous pastry chef book Popsugar sent that one time. THIS is a book for cooking every day, so I’m stoked.

  31. SWAP!

  32. Ahhh I am so excited! I’ve had my eye on this cookbook, mostly because I love Chrissy Teigan, but I’m so glad that I waited!

  33. This was on my amazon watch list and i was thinking about buying it for my friends birthday in two weeks. She gets popsugar too so onto another idea!

  34. I’m not a fan of getting hard copies of books in sub boxes (e books anyone?), but this looks promising. I like cook books and it can’t be worse than that pastry chef book from last December.

    • Yes ebooks please!!

  35. So, this is one of those people I’m supposed to know if I keep up on things right? LOL.

    I like cookbooks though so hopefully there’s a few good recipes to try out.

    • I just looked her up. She’s a model! Why anyone would want a cookbook written by a model is way beyond me.

      I hope someone will want to swap for this.

      • I heard that it is not “model” type food at all. Like not light and uber healthy. So hoping it’s as good as I’ve heard!

      • She, and John Legend, legitimately love food and are pretty great at it.

      • She is a model, but a sweet, sweet girl married to a famous singer and is so in love with him. I saw an interview with her talking about the decadent recipes she has in this cook book. She LOVES to cook and is a passion of hers. Her notoriety gives her an opportunity to share this love of cooking. I am excited to see what she serves her hubby and friends!

      • She said in an interview it isn’t full of food to diet or lose weight. I’m hoping it will be slightly useful.

      • She’s a model, and also an online personality, including “Lip Sync Battle” which we love to watch 🙂

  36. I’m excited about a cookbook, more excited if the whole April PS box revolves around the kitchen.

  37. This was on my “to buy” list so I’m really excited. I love Chrissy Teigen. She’s hilarious.

  38. The book is really good, y’all!! I really liked it a lot.

  39. Darn! I already bought this cookbook. It’s a really fun read with lots of great recipes, by the way. Even though I already bought it, I can’t complain that they are including it. I think it’s a spot-on choice (definitely a must-have with a lot of buzz)! And now I can give one as a gift. I already have the perfect recipient in mind.

  40. Ugh! I literally just bought this!

    • That’s the WORST! Gift or return? 🙁 That’s bittersweet because it’s something they are including that we really want!

  41. I’m excited for this one! I’ve been thinking about buying it anyways 🙂

  42. Kinda agree, but she knows how to have a good time! I’m pleasantly surprised to see it in April’s box 🙂

  43. I can’t figure out how I feel about Chrissy Teigen. Sometimes I like her and sometimes she just gets on my nerves. I do love cookbooks though so hopefully this will be a good one!

    • I was that way too! Eventually I just kind of let go of the things that bugged me, she’s actually pretty funny and “real”. Either way, I am really excited about her cookbook because I heard the food in there is sooooo good! 🙂

    • Omg same here. I’m probably the only person NOT excited for this :-/

  44. Unlike most people, I loved December’s box but have skipped January-March because none of them impressed me. This might be the box that sucks me back in though. I love Chrissy Teigen!

  45. OMG! I am so excited to see this and thankfully I didn’t buy it yet, like I had planned to do!! I LOOOOOOVE her 🙂

  46. I have no words! This is currently on my wish list! YESSSSSSS!

  47. I personally find Chrissy Teigen extremely annoying and always sounds less than intelligent, so I’m not getting my hopes up for the quality of this book. But hey, if I can get a couple recipes out of it, I won’t complain.

    • Same here. She annoys the S out of me specially with that “no good looking nanny” thing she said but anyways, I’m just not excited for this :-/ Don’t like her…don’t need more recipe book :-/

      • Not a fan of Chrissy Teigen at all, but I don’t understand why the “no hot nanny” or staff would bother anyone? Like it makes total sense. Look at Jude Law, Ben Affleck, Gavin Rossdale who have cheated with young, pretty nannies. At the very least it’s a distraction I wouldn’t want around if I was in a position like hers. It’s not like it’s your accountant or pharmacist; this is someone you’d see daily and would be very much involved in your personal life. It’s a legit concern.

    • She’s friends with Kim K and Kanye… that says loads for me. I didn’t know who she was until she started making weird faces as awards shows. I still do not get why she’s “relevant” but then I don’t get why any of the K people are either. Surprised it’s not Khrissy now. smh
