Guest Post: What’s Justine Cooking?

HI EVERYONE! Today I am site seeing in London, with my study abroad group. It is my second day in London and am loving every minute of it! As well as my site seeing I have a guest blogger set up for you. This is a special guest post because it comes from one of my friends. Last year the lovely Justine and I lived on the same floor at school. I quickly grew fond of Justine’s blog because its all about food. Yes you heard right, every time she posts its about a new recipe. I also went through a huge baking/cooking phase last year so her blog was a lifesaver. My favorite (and super easy) Stuffed French Toast….seriously go check it out! Alright onto Justine’s post.


Brownie Cheesecake Ingredients:


1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chunks
1/2 cup halved walnuts or pecans (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla.  Beat in eggs one by one until the ingredients are completely combined.  In a separate bowl combined the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add a little bit at a time and stir after each addition until all has been completely combined.  Stir in walnuts and chocolate chunks. Place brownie mixture into the bottom of a greased spring-form pan.  Bake for 20 minutes in the oven.


2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Directions:In a large bowl beat the cream cheese and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Then add the vanilla and 1 egg at a time, beating in between each egg.  Then add the lemon juice and beat for 2 minutes on high until smooth and creamy. Add the mixture on top of the brownie mixture.  Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until cheesecake is set. For an additional treat, top with hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry to make a brownie sundae cheesecake.


THANKS JUSTINE! So if you’re a cheesecake lover (if your not…disgrace) please go make this! And don’t forget to check out her blog as well. Also if you want to check out my cheesecake post here is the link. A lot like Justine’s but I had a big fail while making mine, what’s that saying: you win some you lose some?


What is your favorite dessert to make?

I love making cheesecake, or cookies (so simple, but so many different kinds).
