The 10 Hottest Celebrity Cookbooks of the Year
Celebs: they're just like us! They love to eat, and as it turns out, they're cooks, too. These multitasking artists have turned their creative skills to the kitchen and are sharing their favorite recipes, family stories and cooking secrets with their fans.
Chrissy Teigen's massive social media audience knows two things for sure about her: the woman is hilarious and she can cook.

Teen star of Saved by the Bell and Beverly Hills, 90210, Tiffani Thiessen has made an adult name for herself as a Cooking Channel host. In her first cookbook, Pull Up a Chair, Thiessen promises unfussy recipes that are twists on classics you already know and love.
L.A. health coach and celeb nutritionist Kelly LeVeque gives us 88 recipes and loads of wellness advice in Body Love: Live in Balance, Weigh What You Want, and Free Yourself from Food Drama Forever. If a cookbook can free you of food drama, cravings and mood swings, it is worth its weight in gold.
Joanna Gaines needs no introduction. The Fixer Upper megastar has penned her first cookbook, Magnolia Table, and it became an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. We're not surprised! Gaines brings her impeccable taste to 125 classic recipes with lots of personal stories and gorgeous pictures included.
Would a modern day celeb list be complete without a YouTube-made star included? Rosanna Pansino shares her fun and spunky style in recipes for delicious treats in Baking All Year Round. A rare treat for those with dietary restrictions, this cookbook includes some recipes that are vegan, gluten- and dairy-free.
Fashion wunderkind Zac Posen is an expert in creating stunning clothes, and his cookbook, Cooking with Zac: Recipes From Rustic to Refined, promises to give his readers beautiful recipes. Posen claims it will deliver masterpieces of the edible variety collected from family favorites and his world travels.
Always lovable and somehow completely relatable for an A-list Hollywood star, Reese Witherspoon is a southern woman at heart.

It even includes a "fail-proof" technique for hot rolling your hair.
If you were a fan of MTV's The Hills or Laguna Beach, you'll no doubt recognize Kristin Cavallari and maybe marvel that she ended up writing a cookbook.

In the Pixar animated movie Ratatouille, the ghost of a chef reminds his rat protege that, "anyone can cook." That line echos through my head when reading about Snoop Dogg's first cookbook, From Crook to Cook. "Tha Dogg" has gained a following cooking next to Martha Stewart and brings his hilarious brand of entertainment to the pages of this book. It includes everything from his twist on high-end recipes (like Lobster Thermador) to fried bologna sandwiches.
Admittedly, Nigella Lawson is a tried-and-true chef but the only professional cook on this list definitely rises to the level of celebrity status. Lawson's comforting foods and clear love of food makes At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking a sure win. Her recipes are simple to follow and deliver surprise revelations that only professionals know. She writes as divinely as she cooks, and her passion shines through every word she pens.
