Heater Hog Henry

Eat in front of a heater (or Costco heat dish)! Henry the Heater-Hog knows the secret too: If he got any closer, I think he’d singe his nose off!

You Lie,

Before I go out in the mornings, I make sure to check the weather so I know how to dress. has never steered me wrong.  Today’s guide informed me that there was a 0% chance of precipitation at 8AM. Now I don’t know about you, but where I come from, zero means none. That is the […]

Flower Power

Last summer, I made cupcakes for the birthday party of my then-boyfriend’s sister.  The birthday girl and her guests went crazy over the completely-edible sailboat, butterfly, watermelon, swimmer, flip-flops, etc. (Pictures here) Their parents all took down my phone number, and one of the party-goers recently called me with this request: Could I please make […]

Spa Sundaes

Another coconutty post: For the most part, it’s great to have a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. However, there is one downside to not being single on the day: it means you’re left out of Girls’ Night! Just in case some of you don’t know what Valentine’s Day Girls’ Night is, here are the kinds of […]

My tongue has died and gone to Heaven

R.I.P. tongue. Thank you so much to Tristan and the other nice folks at Artisana for sending me the cutest care package of samples I have ever seen. Artisana makes raw, organic nut butters in the following fun (and delicious) flavors: Pecan, Walnut, Macadamia Nut, Cashew, Tahini, and Almond.  They also produce a line of coconut-based spreads: […]

Cream of Wheat? Nope, it’s Cream of Kamut!

The kamut and spelt flakes are just–for lack of a better word–flimsy in comparison to oats. However, the taste is just as good as oats. Kamut flakes have a chewy, almost nutty and sweet taste. They’re delicious! Therefore, it was only a matter of time before, in an attempt to make these grains creamier and […]

Oatmeal Week Recap

I still have one more oatmeal post to write, but honestly I’m a little burned out by oatmeal right now (burned out writing about it, NOT eating it, of course!!  Never eating it!!).  Y’all are probably getting sick of my oatmeal posts by now, too!  So I’ll save the last one for a later date. There’s just so much […]

Changing the world, one oatmeal-hater at a time

My sister doesn’t hate oatmeal per se. But, like many others, her idea of oatmeal is the mushy, runny goo one finds at cheap hotel buffets.  Needless to say, she’s not the food’s greatest fan. Always up for a challenge, I decided to repeat the oatmeal conversion process that worked so well on my friend. […]

When is a Snickerdoodle not a Snickerdoodle?

When it’s Snickerdoodle Oatmeal! Serves one hungry CCK or one and a half normal people.  No, I do not recommend taking to the streets in search of a “half” person to eat the oatmeal you cannot finish.  Now if you want to cut your roommate in half…  Ok, no I don’t recommend that either!  So […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Oatmeal

Where were we? Let’s continue with yesterday’s Crazy Oatmeal Story. . Ah yes, in the Secret Oatmeal Lair… Sure, it would have been easy to just crumble up chocolate-chip cookies into oatmeal and call it a day.  But: I was up for more of a challenge. I wanted the oatmeal to be a little more nutritious than […]

Friends don’t let friends hate oatmeal

There I was, extolling the amazingness that is oatmeal, when my friend interrupted me with this bombshell: “I don’t like oatmeal.” First thought to run through my head: “I can’t be friends with you anymore.” Kidding! But I did decide that dear friend’s mind needed changing.  And thus the challenge began. -Me: Well what kinds of […]

Finally finished the FAQ Page

CCK is capable of being organized; who knew?!  Certainly not my teachers, anyway.  (Mommy Dearest would probably be shocked as well.) I deserve a gold star, right?  (What are we, in kindergarten??) Weirdo. I even made categories: Veganism Health/Body Running/Exercise Blogging Other Seriously, who is this person, and what did she do with Katie??? FAQ […]

I like it RAW

After eating the zucchini fries cooked, I decided to try them again, only raw this time.  The verdict?  I like them raw!  There’s just something about the crunch. Take a look at those gorgeous green things:
