I am Hungry, Hear me ROAR!

Thought I’d share a picture of yesterday’s post-run breakfast (i.e. “second breakfast”) because it features a new favorite of mine– pine nuts. I used to eat these little gems all the time in cookies (called “Pignoli Cookies”), but never thought to pop ’em plain. Gosh, they’re good. In fact, I think I’ll end this post […]

Katie the Caterer?

I got another decorating “job” over the weekend. One of our neighbors just turned 16, and her mom asked if she could hire me to make cupcakes. Of course I said yes! It was a really easy job, too– the mom told me exactly how she wanted the cupcakes done (purple icing with pink hearts). […]

Alfredo, Alfredo!

Another post from me so soon? Well, I wanted to continue to keep up with the demand that I post more pictures of my meals. (This does not mean I’m going to be posting everything I eat every day. I’m impressed by the bloggers who do so, but I just don’t have anywhere near enough […]

Bulgur and the Beast

Well, except there is no beast in this story, so really the title should just be “Bulgur”… but that’s much too boring, don’t you agree? Normally, I’m a huge fan of simple, quick-to-prepare meals. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, this statement probably doesn’t surprise you. I love to eat… but cooking […]

Cupcakes by Katie

Sadly, I did NOT make a giant cupcake… but it was a good guess! Honestly, who doesn’t like cupcakes? Even my burliest of guy friends have decided there’s no better food to wash down with a beer than a pretty pink cupcake. Decorating cupcakes can be quite time-consuming, though. The last time I made some, […]

Lazy Boy

No, not the sofa company… I’m referring to my little dog, Henry. All he ever does is lie on his back! It’s easy to see where they get the saying “It’s a dog’s life.” Working on your tummy-tan, Mr. Henry?

Hello from CCK

A lot’s been happening on my blog the last few days. To think that when I started this blog, I thought no one would read! First of all, I cannot write another word until I thank you all (both my blogging friends and supportive readers) for the tremendous amount of kindness you’ve all shown to […]

Move over, Miss American Pie. Make room for Miss American Cupcake!

Y’all didn’t think I’d go to a party and not bring cupcakes, now did you?   I really didn’t have much time to make/decorate these guys, so I had to abandon my plans for fondant Uncle Sams and Lady Liberties. No one seemed to mind; I went home at the end of the night with […]

Red, White, Blue, and Vegan (Part One)

Ok, first I have to tell you all this hilarious story: On the morning of the Fourth of July, I went out to a running trail by a local lake. I was minding my own business when suddenly I noticed a man going the opposite direction, wearing patriotic SPANDEX shorts! He had on a blue tee […]

Clowning Around

In my next post, I’ll write all about my fun-filled Fourth of July. But for now, all I can give you is cake. I hope you don’t mind! Another party; another cake. Sadly, I didn’t get to go to this party… but I still had fun making the cake! Knowing how much I love to […]

Happy Fourth of July!

(Happy Fourth of July to all my blogging friends and readers in the United States. To everyone else: Happy Friday!!!) (Fireworks from last year) Cake post coming soon…
