The Chopstick Masters

Pin It!

Uh Oh.

I, Chocolate-Covered Katie, used to be known as the Chopstick Queen… but it seems two conniving little rascals (a.k.a. my cousins, Dennis and Nathan) usurped that title from me while we were on our cruise. Take a look:

What to do about this?

Oh, okay boys, you can have the title. You’re much cuter than I am with the chopsticks, anyway.

Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

    Aww, so cute! But I’m sure you’re cute with the chopsticks too. :) Do they know how to use chopsticks? If not you should definitely teach them! :) Happy birthday (almost)! Hope you have some yummy vegan cupcakes/cake for your bday.

  32. Astra Libris says:

    Happy Happy birthday!! May your birthday bring all your dreams, and the most delicious year ever!

  33. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    My hair definitely doesn’t curl like that naturally. I WISH! Normally, it’s pin-straight. To get it to look like that, my super-talented sister used a spiral curling iron. (She seriously IS super-talented… she can actually French-braid her OWN hair!!!)

    Your comment was so sweet! Thank you!!!

    LOL, my cousins do not know how to use chopsticks… but they have fun trying! Well, actually, as you can see in the pictures, I think Nathan just had fun putting them in his mouth :o).
