Spooky Babies

I ended up posting twice yesterday. If you missed the Peanut Butter Fudge Baby post, click here. Above, ready to be rolled into Peanut Butter Babies Moving on to Today’s post: I once read that the most elite runners think of absolutely nothing but their form as they run. Well, I guess that counts me […]

Chocolate Mudslide Oatmeal

To say I’m excited about Halloween would be an understatement. How can one not get excited when thinking about Halloween Cupcakes, cute black cats, jack-o-lanterns, and (the best part!) dressing up? During this time, nothing is exempt from my little Halloween-happy fingers. Nothing, not even my oatmeal. So this morning, for my post-run breakfast, I celebrated the holiday a […]

Halloween Hotties

Now that we’ve established the fact that I am not pregnant, I’m free to play the field.  Right? Hotties first: Please don’t close your hand!! Gives new meaning to the words “smoldering eyes” Grrr… One tough, arame-eatin’ seagull. Now that’s hot. (And no, Paris Hilton, I will not be paying you any royalties for using […]


No, I’m not pregnant. But someone is! I modeled my friend’s baby-shower stork cake after a button from Party City.   Below, with the button:   For the time being, I’d much rather make some of these babies: (Above, original hot cocoa babies and chocolate coconut fudge babies. Above, plain fudge babies keep company with […]

The Pumpkin Farm

Browsing through my recipes, one can see that I love pumpkin! From Pumpkin Pie Mousse to Pumpkin Pie Stir Fries, it’s safe to say this girl harbors a healthy appreciation for all things winter squash (and I know I’m not the only one!!). Oh yes, my blog is definitely chock-full of Pumpkin Recipes. So I […]

Would you like some Hay with your Chocolate?

Let’s begin the post with some Choco-licious Chocolate Pudding. Because anything is good if it starts with chocolate, right? But we’ll come back to the pudding later. First, Carb Month News: The photos so far have been adorable, fun, and hilarious. Take, for instance, my reader friend, Jennifer’s, photo: The carbs in hay do a nice […]

Mommy, how are Babies made?

The question that makes mothers everywhere cringe. Warning: the above is shockingly graphic for a childrens’ book. But it makes a hilarious addition to any college party. (The seniors read this book to us when I was a freshman in college. I really don’t know how I would’ve reacted if someone read it to me when I […]

Fur Babies

A fun day at the Dog Park for Molly and Henry

Please don’t Hate me!!

After potatoes and spaghetti, bananas might just be the most misunderstood food in America. The mainstream media (i.e. magazines, fitness tv shows, and diet books) tells us to shun bananas because they are: A. High in calories B. Starchy C. High in carbs Once again, I feel compelled to argue against the media. On a recent post, […]

Baby Got Back

This is my car with its top off: And this is my car from the side: But here is my car from the back: You know what, Stan, if you want me to wear 37 pieces of flair, like your pretty boy over there, Brian, why don’t you just make the minimum 37 pieces of […]

Cookie Cutter-ed cookies, Fudge Baby style! Totally fudgey.  Totally delicious.  Totally ADORABLE! Christmas can’t come soon enough! For the Fudge Babies above, […]

The Stress Fracture Sidestep: A Runner’s Dance

Close Call. A few weeks ago, I noticed that my right ankle was purple and swollen. It didn’t hurt, but swelling is never a good sign, right? And purple foods may be fun, but purple feet are another story entirely. “Please go away,” I silently begged the violet puffiness. Oddly enough, it didn’t listen. (Shocking, I know.) Since […]

Make. These. Now.

They’re raw. They’re sinful sinless. They’re delicious… and totally addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I love recreating dessert recipes. But that’s no secret if you’ve read my page: About Chocolate-Covered Katie A few weeks ago, after discovering they’re discontinuing one of my favorite energy bars (Clif Nectar) , I set out to try and recreate said […]

There’s Chocolate In My Banana Brulee

Please forgive me if there are a bazillion typos in this post.  My mind’s not exactly in top shape today.  I usually get about 8 hours of sleep per night, but for some reason I woke up at 2 this morning and could not fall back to sleep. Of course, the harder I tried, the […]
