    This show is my millennial fantasy: coworkers that are awesome, a cool job, a skill that is actually semi-lucrative

    I’m just sitting here waiting for Chris Morocco to recommend tempering Claire’s crackers and there he goes throwing shade around about the Reese’s cups lmao

  9. Packie Shepard says:

    Omg, Claire is a huge Buffy fan. <3 Just when I thought I couldn't adore her more.

  10. Daniel P says:

    I love that Claire’s casually making a video while what looks like a team meeting is going on behind her.

  11. jasmine davis says:

    i love how Gaby comes running when Claire asks if she wanna taste something

  15. Tyler Hyman says:

    Could you please professionally subtitle your videos? I love watching them but I’m slightly hard of hearing and my audio on my phone isn’t too good. I’m sure others feel the same. Thank you and hope it gets fixed!! ?

    • Tyler Hyman says:

      Aycha Jennadi I know, but they aren’t the most accurate

    • Amanda Abbott says:

      Agreed! Even the captions on the captioned part aren’t right “roll into 8 inch thickness” is definitely not the eighth inch thickness stated in video.

    • Hamzah Mirza says:

      +Aycha Jennadi the cc @ 2:28 instead of smokiness is small penis so no, cc doesn’t always work ?

    • Keisha dyer says:


    • Sarah B says:

      Yes!!! Im not hard of hearing but I have a hard time understanding words sometimes and always use subtiltes on everything. Both this channel and Epicurious are very hard to understand at times.

  16. RedDrought says:

    For April Fool’s Claire should make gourmet Classic Lay’s Chips…I’m just saying.

    • Jess Page says:

      RedDrought does that involve just opening one of those packaging bags you get when you get something shipped to you and saying “yep it’s done, there they are”?

  17. Lyndi Wittmann says:

    Okay but I still wanna know why the original recipe just stopped working.

    • Aycha Jennadi says:


    • Kay says:

      Sometimes it just be that way

    • Razorvine says:

      Baking is kind of one of those things, Claire kept saying that she didn’t really change anything but she actually did make minor changes in every batch that she did. Baking is finicky if you change your process even a tiny bit, change the amount of any ingredient slightly, change the way you incorporate it, etc, It can literally completely change your outcome.

    • Maria Luna Martins Zanuto says:

      I thought It was because of the laminated layers

    • Sophia Soto says:

      She started to substitute all purpose flour for cake flour and also used cheese powder as well as added a lot more cheddar

  18. Vintage Beauty says:

    Would love a gourmet fig newton!!

    Also, “I blame Brad” would be a fun t-shirt!!

  19. Felix H says:

    You should get Claire to try and make gold-fish!
