I wasn’t Supposed To Put Beef In The Trifle

Rachel, no you weren’t supposed to put beef in the trifle. It did not taste good. Reason 1,000001 to become a vegetarian: You’ll never have to worry about making the same mistake as Rachel on Friends. That doesn’t mean my Thanksgiving cooking was without its fair share of snafus. I’d originally planned on making a stuffed […]

Chocolate with a side of Chocolate

It finally happened: Today’s second breakfast was too much chocolate, even for me. When it came time to eat the homemade Cookie Dough Bar, I realized I was already chocolate-d out. I didn’t know such a thing was possible! But alas, it is possible. After polishing off the bowl of Brownie Batter Oatmeal, I experienced chocolate […]

Big Men have Little…

…Dogs. Don’t think I didn’t know where your minds were going! 😉 When I’m out running in the mornings, I pass quite a few people walking their dogs. And I’ve noticed a pattern: Oddly enough, the women seem to favor larger dogs, while I encounter more men with little pups.  One day, I brought the subject […]

Pumpkin Pie Babies

Children be warned. The following is a possible result of not using protection when your boyfriend looks like this. (How’s that for a sex-education lesson?) My, what lovely children you have… Pumpkin Pie Babies 1/4 cup cooked winter squash of choice (I used kabocha), or sweet potato 1 tablespoon almonds or walnuts 40 grams dates […]

Hold the phone: This guy is a vegan?!

Do not tell me you don’t know who he is! Maybe this will help: Come on; I know I wasn’t the only one who saw that cheesy movie. So long, old crush; you’ve been replaced. Too bad Michael Rady, a.k.a. Kostos in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Jonah Miller on Melrose Place, is apparently […]

New York City: Babycakes

A few months ago, I wrote about how my normally-absent sweet tooth sometimes likes to emerge and demand to be fed. Such an event occurred one summer’s day in New York City. So, I did what any hungry girl would do: I attempted to satisfy my craving. In such a food-packed location, one need not look […]

This is NOT a happy post

In fact, I deliberated for a long time before finally deciding to write it.  And three seconds after I publish, I’ll probably regret it.  My blog posts are normally light and positive for two reasons: One, I don’t think anyone visits my blog in order to become depressed (or to hear me defend myself from […]

Guilt and Exercise

Email time again Recently, a sweet reader asked: Hi Katie! I just found your blog and read through your whole FAQ Page! Thanks for the source of procrastination from my homework!  And it was so well-written and thorough too. I really enjoyed reading it. But I noticed you wrote that you don’t run ever day, […]

Pumpkin Pie Salad Dressing?

Remember my friend? Well yeah, he doesn’t really have anything to do with this post.  But I thought y’all would appreciate seeing his hotness again! The following recipe, just like most of my other recipesis three things: Quick, easy, and lick-the-bowl/blender/spoon-good. Liquid like soup, but sweet like pie.  It’s… Pumpkin Pie Soup (Makes 1 serving) […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies

Nursery Shenanigans One fateful night, I laid my Cashew Cookie Truffles in their playpen next to the dark chocolate bars.  But something happened while I slept… come morning, the bouncing babies were gone! I didn’t have to look far to find them, though: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies As children, how many of you ate […]

Homemade Cashew Cookie Larabars

Cashew Cookie Larabars It all started with the Hot Chocolate Fudge Babies. I love them. You love them. Everyone loves them. And so the time is ripe to introduce another flavor: cashew cookie. I initially created these to be a replica of the Cashew Cookie Larabars. However, this homemade version ended up tasting so much better than the packaged bars! I might […]

Do you plan your meals in advance?

Since I started blogging, I’ve received quite a few emails like this recent one, below: Hey Katie! I’m a new reader and a new vegan too. And I have a question for you. Your meals always look amazing and so well put together. So my question is how do you decide what to eat? Do […]

Raw Mounds Bars

Who doesn’t love Mounds Bars??? I could’ve simply included these raw mounds bars as a variation in the Raw Macaroon post. But they’re just way too good to be a side note. Chocolate always deserves its own post, don’t you think? Besides, the Mounds Bar was one of my favorite candy bars as a kid.  (I also […]

Raw Macaroons

Completely raw macaroons that are entirely vegan and contain no added sugars… (Form them into balls, bars, or cookie-cutter shapes, like the Peanut Butter Babies.) Macaroon Babies 160 grams dates (1 and 1/3 c) (I use Sunmaid because they’re softer) 1/4 cup coconut butter 1/4 cup tbsp shredded coconut (I used unsweetened) Note: A few readers/bloggers have […]

Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness

  Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness I always want to help others but often get bogged down in the thought that “I’m just one small person; how much help can I really be?” And there are so many worthy causes out there that it’s easy to become discouraged and give up. People often get so overwhelmed at […]
