Considering that Mindy Kaling has pulled “a full Julie & Julia with Chrissy Teigen‘s cookbook Cravings, we think it’s safe to say the actress is pretty passionate about food.

Need more proof? The Mindy Project star recently curated her perfect baking playlist with Amazon Music Unlimited, where she shared 15 songs she plays in her kitchen.

Among her picks are John Legend‘s “Love Me Now,” an obvious choice for the cooking enthusiast, who is just as obsessed with Legend’s model-wife as we are. “It’s the closest I’ll get to baking with Chrissy Teigen,” Kaling shared.

As for whether or not Beyoncé makes an appearance on the expectant mom‘s playlist, the answer is a resounding “yes.” Queen Bey is listed twice, with her hits “Upgrade U” and “Love On Top” notably highlighted.
