Joanna Gaines Reveals the Random Foods She’s Craving Most During Her Pregnancy, Plus Chip’s Sympathy Cravings

While Joanna Gaines has been relatively quiet about her pregnancy, she has had a hard time keeping her pregnancy cravings to herself. In fact, the soon-to-be mom of five has taken to social media, as well as her blog, to voice a number of different foods she — and Chip — can’t stop thinking about.

From the one food that settles her cravings (page 5) to her current must-have breakfast beverage (page 9), we share the random foods Joanna Gaines is craving most during her pregnancy — plus, Chip’s sympathy cravings (page 12) — ahead.

1. Fruity Pebbles

Another late-night craving Joanna shared with followers: chicken spaghetti. We’re not exactly sure what recipe she is referring to, but her version is probably delicious (and hopefully included in her new cookbook, Magnolia Table).

3. Pimiento cheese sandwich

In addition to Fruity Pebbles and chicken spaghetti, Joanna has also admitted to craving pimento cheese sandwiches. Made with sharp yellow cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, pimientos, onion, mustard, and cayenne pepper, the spicy cheese sandwich may sound strange, but it’s actually delicious.

Another random late-night craving? Deviled eggs. Made by removing the yolks from hard-boiled eggs and mashing them with mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, and spices, we don’t blame her for craving the tasty appetizer.

Let’s be honest: Ranch dressing tastes good on pretty much anything (OK, maybe not everything, but close enough). So, it’s no wonder it’s one of Joanna’s top pregnancy cravings.

6. Chocolate chip cookies

Despite listing off her random late night pregnancy cravings, Joanna didn’t give into any of them — not because she had the willpower, but because she didn’t have the ingredients.

That said, she did happen to have ingredients for homemade chocolate chip cookies on hand. Instead of stuffing her face with pimiento cheese sandwiches and deviled eggs, she made a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies using the recipe from her new cookbook.

Next: She’s also craving items from her restaurant, Magnolia Table.

7. Pancakes


She’s obsessed with the Magnolia pancakes. |

In a Magnolia blog post, Joanna shared some of her current Magnolia Table pregnancy cravings. At the top of her list? The Pancake Breakfast. The buttermilk pancakes come with two eggs any style, thick cut peppered bacon and housemade tater tots — yum!

Next: We’re craving this Magnolia Table lunch item, too.

8. Chicken salad sandwich

On top of food, Joanna is also craving some beverages, too. And while she loves Magnolia Table’s signature juices, it’s the lavender latte that is currently tugging at her taste buds. Magnolia Table offers a variety of popular breakfast and brunch beverages — such as, coffee, espresso, lattes, mochas, cappuccinos, and drip coffee — that can be customized with add-in lavender, caramel, or vanilla flavoring.

10. Gaines Bros Burger

Chip also has some favorite Magnolia Table menu items. And while he has yet to confirm whether or not these are actually just sympathy cravings, they’re as random as Joanna’s pregnancy cravings.

First on his list of favorites: The Farm Eggs Benedict. Made with two of Joanna’s famous buttermilk biscuits topped with poached eggs and thick cut peppered bacon with a drizzle of hollandaise sauce, the breakfast staple is a must-have.

13. Tater tots

Unlike the rest of us, Magnolia Table doesn’t use frozen tater tots as a side dish — they make their own, instead. The house-made tater tots come with many of the items on Magnolia Table’s menu and are a current favorite of Chip’s.
