Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Are Couple Goals at This Year’s Met Gala

  Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Are Couple Goals at This Year’s Met Gala Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are already couple goals at this year’s Met Gala, and they haven’t even gotten dressed yet. Teigen just Instagrammed a snap of the duo in bed, covered with only their hotel bed comforter. The caption reads: “Readddddy. #metball.” Well, that’s one way to coordinate your looks for one of fashion’s biggest nights. MORE: The 50 Most Beautiful Wedding Cakes Ever Just a few minutes later, the photo of the parents was followed by one of daughter Luna being fitted with very adult-sized glasses whose fun, retro frames we hope to spot on Teigen very soon. In a very preppy polo shirt look, Luna looks much more prepared to hit the red carpet than her just-out-of-the-shower parents, if you ask us. The family has been spotted strolling the streets of the city in preparation for tonight’s event, holding hands and looking more effortlessly gorgeous than ever. Just yesterday, Teigen shared a black-and-white photo of her and daughter Luna, sitting on what looks to be the stoop of a New York brownstone, writing, “My stoop buddy.” Looking pretty at-home, might we suggest a cross-country move for the family of three? MORE: What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Marriage Teigen and Legend opted not to attend last year’s event, but showed up in a classic black gown tux at 2015’s Met Gala. Prior to that, Teigen selected a high-necked silver gown in 2014 and a totally sheer black gown in 2011.

Let me start by saying that I love Chrissy Teigen . She’ s hilarious, outspoken “A cookbook full of sexy pictures of Chrissy devouring things like hamburgers and mac and cheese,” which is, as it turns out , an so I thought that trying out a few recipes from Cravings could be a great way to show otherwise

Teigen keeps it on hand because in the event that her hubby John Legend ruins the turkey ( we thought he could do no wrong, but apparently, he can) she can Watch Chrissy Teigen Serve Chicken Wings In the Best Way Possible. 5 Game-Changing Cooking Hacks Chrissy Teigen Insists You Learn.

Here are three things that we love (in no particular order): burgers, hacks, and Chrissy Teigen. So when the model turned food queen and Cravings cookbook author hit us with a burger hack last week, we nearly lost it over the converging trifecta. Tuning into Teigen's Snapchat cooking escapades is nothing new for us, but her buttery, coconut, burger buns? Those took us by sweet surprise. So after beholding the below golden glory, we knew we had to try the combo for ourselves, ASAP.

With no specific recipe list or written instructions to follow, I gleaned from Teigen's Snapchat that the three obvious ingredients needed were as follows: burger buns, butter, and unsweetened shredded coconut. So I scooped them up and got down to it — taking a bit of creative license with the rest of my menu planning: I paired the sweet buns with some savory salmon burger patties, where she went the teriyaki chicken burger route. Assembly was easy enough; I buttered the buns, sprinkled the shredded coconut on top, and then popped them into the oven to toast. As I waited it out, I could already envision the buttery, crispy, and coconut-encrusted glory that would ensue. I could nearly taste the way they would pair in sweet and savory harmony with the simple salmon patties. It would be utter umami brilliance a la Snap-chef Teigen. At least that's what I thought...until I pulled the buns out and the before and after shots looked, exactly the same:

My buns appeared dry, with a complete lack of any golden-melty glory. And even though the initial visual comparison was a let down, I hopefully pushed on to taste them. Once sandwiched between the salmon patties (cooked in coconut oil for some bonus complimentary flavor), I chomped in expecting fireworks. Instead, I was met with simply salmon. Again, I attempted a little benefit of the doubt (perhaps the salmon was just too overpowering?), and so I bit into one solo. But still I wasn't met with any coconut-buttery sweetness, only the usual bread-y flavor.

What exactly had gone wrong here? First, ingredient ratios; coconut, while it may get toastier and crispy, does not actually melt like shredded cheese — so the gooeyness of Teigen's buns must have been achieved through a heftier smear of butter than in my overly dry attempt. Second, unsweetened flakes; sweetened shredded coconut may have had a more intense flavor impact when combined in a burger situation. With too many flavor and texture layers at play in this dish, the shredded coconut was completely lost. But, just because we failed at recreating Teigen's glorious bun hack sans written recipe instructions (here's hoping her next cookbook includes a more official tutorial), doesn't mean we'll be giving up altogether — because when in doubt or kitchen crisis, more butter always makes everything better.

We Pitted Chrissy Teigen’s Scramble Egg Hack Against Bobby Flay’s .
Scrambled eggs are one of those deceptively easy foods that even "I-can't-even-boil-water" types are able to whip up. But don't let the relative simplicity fool you: this basic dish has a million permutations and preparations. Recently, we put Gordon Ramsay’s master class on eggs to the test, then latter pitted it against Bobby Flay’s instructions for basic scrambled eggs. Both are based on the classic French preparation, which is runny and with small curds, not the large, fluffy ones many of us were raised on in the U.S.
