5 Times Kris Jenner’s Cookbook Proved She’s Totally Out of Touch

Kris Jenner loves showing her fans that she’s just like any other mom. Although she manages the Kardashian-Jenner sisters’ careers, she doesn’t always focus on business with her famous family. 

Sometimes, Jenner’s 10 grandchildren and six children enjoy her cooking at home. However, the matriarch’s cookbook, In The Kitchen With Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites, shows some fans that she’s not very self-aware or relatable after all.

1. The time Kris Jenner’s cookbook suggested a salsa that’s ‘figure-friendly’ 

 As many Keeping Up With the Kardashians saw for 20 seasons, Jenner enjoys hosting parties. The 65-year-old momager also loves spending time with her six children and 10 grandchildren. However, in In The Kitchen With Kris, Jenner shared that she tries to create recipes that protect her appearance. While writing about her spicy tomato salsa recipe, she explained how the salsa can be a delectable snack for those watching their “figure,” per Eater.

“I love this salsa because it’s as figure-friendly as it is fabulous,” Jenner said, “Especially when you think outside the tortilla chip bag.”

2. Kris Jenner’s cookbook reveals her obsession with table settings

In her cookbook, Jenner also expresses her love for decorating her dinner table while entertaining guests. Throughout the book, she shared that she stresses the importance of setting the table for dinner parties or other events. Jenner described her table setting skills as “my way of expressing my artistic and creative side.” She also revealed the act became even more important to her once she married Robert Kardashian Sr. in 1978. 

“When I got married, nesting and creating this visual ambiance was so important to me,” Jenner explained. “I somehow understood that it would be important to tying my family all together.”

3. She even wants to make her refrigerator famous

Since contributing to her family’s success, Jenner has received accusations of pushing her children to stay in the spotlight. Amid Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy news in September 2021, reports surfaced that Jenner didn’t want the beauty mogul to have another baby. Additionally, KUWTK viewers accused the momager of telling stories about her children.

Although Jenner typically laughs off the rumors about her management skills, she continued to wear her business hat while writing In The Kitchen with Kris. During one passage, she said her refrigerator could be social media famous just like everyone else in the Kar-Jenner household. 

“My refrigerator has a personality of its own,” Jenner wrote. “It probably needs its own Instagram account, too.”

4. Kris Jenner’s cookbook name drops J.Lo and O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife 

Jenner also discusses her celebrity friendships in her cookbook. In the text, she mentioned her best friend and O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. The mother of six shared Simpson’s nachos recipe in the book 20 years after her 1994 murder. 

In addition to Simpson, Jenner also shared with fans what Jennifer Lopez’s kitchen looks like in the cookbook. She described the multitalented star’s stove as “the Holy Grail of stoves” in 2014.

J.Lo had this stove that I had never seen before,” Jenner wrote. “It wasn’t just a stove; it was a piece of art.”

5. She’s just as obsessed with aging as the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family

 The Kardashian-Jenners often receive opinions about their feelings toward beauty. Many of them, including Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie, have gotten rumors of plastic surgery throughout their careers. Also, Jenner had reports that she altered her body and face to keep her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, around.

Amid the rumors surrounding her daughters, the matriarch said she intentionally eats foods that protect her from looking older. In the cookbook, Jenner credited tomatoes for helping her maintain a youthful glow. 

“[They] help protect your skin from the aging rays of the sun!” she exclaimed. “I learned…[this] tidbit while watching How to Live to 100 on the Cooking Channel.”
