Strawberry Basil Swiss Roll

I adapted this recipe from Paul Hollywood’s recipe that he presented on the Masterclass episode, and I also watched this segment of the episode three times to make sure I wouldn’t screw this up too badly. The Swiss Roll challenge was the Signature challenge on the first episode of the season. Normally they aren’t decorated,…

The Great Christianne Baking Challenge

I binge watched the entire 5th Season of the Great British Bake Off on Netflix this past week and now I’m sad that there aren’t anymore episodes to watch. If you’re ever stressed out, it’s honestly the best show to watch because all the contestants are so nice and who doesn’t like watching little British…

Baked Egg Cups

If you are like the majority of human beings, you don’t have a whole lot of time for breakfast in the mornings. And while it arguably doesn’t take too long to make a bowl of cereal or scramble some eggs, wouldn’t you rather have more time to sleeeeeeep? I was inspired by the sous vide…

Asian-Inspired Lettuce Wraps

It has been pretty dang hot here in Florida recently, so I’ve been searching for dinner ideas that don’t require a 400 degree oven and tons of time standing over an open flame. These lettuce wraps hit the spot yesterday – and they didn’t make the kitchen heat to 80 degrees. If you don’t want…

Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

Earlier this month I was trying to think of an idea for a treat to bring my law school buds who have been the shining beacon in this otherwise pretty ridiculous first year of law school. I have a bunch of those Betty Crocker sugar cookie mixes at home, but it seemed pretty boring to…

Nutty Green Beans

Green beans are one of the cheapest veggies at the grocery store, so I often buy a ton of them. While they’re great steamed, oven roasted, or thrown in a casserole, I was really craving some green beans almondine this week. The only problem was that when I rifled through the cabinets, I discovered that…

Caprese Frittata

A caprese salad, as you may know, is slices of fresh mozzarella and tomato topped with basil. I’m fudging it a little bit because I didn’t use basil in this recipe (I didn’t have any ok? I’m a student with a limited budget who refuses to shell out the $3.99 for some leaves) but you…

Parmesan Pesto Chicken + Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Who doesn’t love a one pan meal? With this easy combo you can throw everything on a single baking tray, slide it in the oven and walk away for 20 minutes. That’s like a whole episode of Bob’s Burgers, dude. While I am very aware that it is possible to make pesto from scratch, most…

New Year, New Blog

This past year has been a whirlwind of wonderful experiences and even better food. The only problem is that I didn’t document any of it on this blog. My Instagram account is very active (those nine little pictures were the most popular of 2017), but I always get multiple people asking me for recipes and…
