Hold the phone: This guy is a vegan?!

Pin It!


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 engaged. I guess that means I’m still crush-less. Oh well, at least I have chocolate to keep my spirits up. 😉

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—>

  4. Melinda says:

    That’s cool he is a vegan, but uncool for you that he is *sigh* engaged.
    Hopin I win the choc.

  5. Christina says:

    I love piggies. He’s so cute!

  6. I must suggest again a certain little vegetarian by the name of Josh Hartnett. He sounds like a winner: “I’ve had my heart broken, and it’s not fun. But I’d rather have my heart broken than break someone else’s heart.” Awww! 😛

    Oh wait! I just googled him and saw a picture of him smoking! Yuck! No no, Mr. Hartnett, you must give up that nasty habit before you even think about romancing Miss CCV. OK, let’s put him on stand-by! 😀

  7. I gotta say, that pig kind of freaked me out, LOL!! Your new boyfriend is SO much cuter than your old one, dear. :)

  8. Jessica says:

    Very handsome! :) I’ve seen those movies too, hehe.

    Have a good weekend!

  9. fruitsveggieslife says:

    Did you happen to get the adorable piggy picture from Bones? :)

    I’m crossing my fingers (and toes!) for the giveaway!

    Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants = one of my favorite book series ever. I also indulged in the movie and loved it too. I am SUCH and Alexis Bledel fan. It stems from years of Gilmore Girls aka the best TV Show EVER!

  11. Cocoa nibs! I keep wanting to try those since they’re raw-friendly. But they’re so darn expensive at Whole Foods. Someday I will break down and buy a bag … someday.

    And I’ll totally come cook root veggies for you!

  12. merittothecarrot says:

    Kostos is a stud!

    mmmm.. cocoa nibs, I drool just thinking about em’!

  13. oh yum yum bags of raw are gonna make some awesome treats

  14. That movie is such a cute movie and my friends and I saw the first one together. I didn’t realize he was vegan how cool is that!

    I love love love chocolate! I actually went for a whole 2 weeks one time without a bite. Never have I dont that again.

    The piggy is too cute!

  15. Doll Face! What a cute post! I have too many “crushes” to count……I am a huge fan of and read the gossip all the time 😉

    These bags of goodies look yummy!!

    Thank you for the shout out, you are so sweet!!!

    Love Kris

  16. Jenny says:

    if being vegan will increase my chances of getting with that dude, I’ll convert in a sec! 😉

  17. haha.. your blog cracks me up.
    Wondering how do I subscribe to it as my blog is at blogger! :(


  18. Hey, they aren’t married yet…;)

  19. Chrysta says:

    ahaha your too funny! The cacao nibs look great. That would be so dangerous to keep around! I would constantly be pickin at them! super delish. And those macroons look fabulous too! Have a great day!

  20. JCD says:

    Oh yes, cocoa nibs are definitely yummy! They also go great in cookie dough fudge babies!! Cocoa nibs and dried cranberries is my favourite combination.

    And too bad Mr. Rady is engaged. You could try to steal him away but that wouldn’t be nice. Until then, you’ll just have to cuddle up with piggies and chocolate. Which is never a bad thing; it may even be better!

  21. JCD says:

    I was supposed to write ‘Mr. Right will come along in due course.’ before the ‘Until then…’ part. I don’t want you to attempt stealing Mr. Rady. :)

  22. KOSTOS!!! That boy made mi corazon melt at first sight… Kostos <3 Lena forever.

    Sometimes I need to remind myself that I'm 22.

  23. Gena says:

    What awesome goodies you got~

  24. Kathleen says:

    No way!! I had such a crush on him when I saw that movie. A sexy vegan really does make the world a better place for all.

  25. cant wait for a full review of the goodies!!!

  26. lexi. says:

    man those raw goodies look tasty! as always! have a lovely weekend katie!

  27. deisegirl says:

    Yeah seriously never heard of him but then again I am old :(

    The cacoa nibs and paste look deelish 😀

  28. I love Vivapure and chocolate : ) Hope you have a good weekend.

    Oh and what a hottie!!!

  29. sisrocks1996 says:

    Never seen that movie! I’m shocked at how many people are vegan though!

    Um yea that was me and Averie’s Reeses. Actually me and any chocolate :/

    I am trying to link back to your blog as much as possible lady to support your cause!

  30. Kelly says:

    Oh God, I know that guy from an even more embarrassing place… the ABC Family show ‘Greek,’ which I occasionally watch on Hulu late at night when I can’t sleep. Hahahaha. I had no idea he was vegan, though! Awesome!

  31. shelby says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. He’s a vegan?! I love that movie so much just because he’s in it! I could watch it over and over again. I actually don’t think it’s that cheesy!

    This sounds horrible, but I totally hope the engagement doesn’t work out.. 😉

  32. Love love love your blog. Nice macaroons.

  33. broccolihut says:

    KOSTOS! Not gonna lie, I watched that movie a few weeks ago, and I drooled over him just as much as I did the first time I saw that movie!

  34. Madeline says:

    When the page was loading and i only saw his forehead, I thought it might be Michael Phelps. A girl can dream, can’t she? About that back. And his arms. And, well, let’s just say I wouldn’t turn down a guy with a zillion Olympic medals. I hope my boyfriend understands.

  35. Hihi the pig is so cute!
    Even more than Michael Rady, so don’t be upset he’s engaged. The pig will be a better husband :p

    Cacao nibs! You’re so lucky, I never saw them in any grocery, they are so rare here.
    What’s cacao paste???

  36. Jess says:

    You’re too cute! I love the piggy picture. . . I read the book but did not see the movie. Was meh on the book. I think it’s awesome and hysterical that you don’t celebcrush on married guys. :) I crush on my husband. He’s the only hottie for me!!

  37. Jess says:

    (And please tell me you’ll delete the “Boo” comment above me which is spammety-troll ugly all in one? Lies, all of it.)

  38. Boo,
    Your ridiculous comment made me laugh.

    You’re a sweetheart :) LOL

  39. Wow! That Cacao looks amazing!! ( and so do the macaroons! ) Love your blog Katie:-) Aloha, Amanda

  40. Tay says:

    Ahhh it’s CousCous!! haha. My sister always called him couscous (since his name is Kostos). We love him!!

  41. Bekah says:

    AYYYEEEE i love kostos.

    That man is what makes me need, desire and lust after greek men, or any man of dark, foreign ethnicity. :)

    (I’m a pale white girl who can’t tan and wants hot children. I’m just saying.)

  42. eaternotarunner says:

    yum I love cocoa nibs :-)

  43. christina says:

    hahah this post cracked me up! hold the phone! haha!! :) love it!! and geeeeez louise that guy is a sexy one

  44. AmyJoGo says:

    Oooh! Michael Rady! If you really want to fuel your eye candy addiction, go to and watch Season 2 of Greek. He plays Max and is the female lead character’s boyfriend. It’s a totally cheesy show and he is super nerdy, but I’m hooked on him and the show. Guilty pleasure.


  45. Marianne says:

    I totally didn’t know who he was. I’ll admit it. But I’m old and out of touch with what the hip & happenin’ kids are into these days 😉

  46. the vegster says:

    Oh my gosh, Kostos is vegan?? <3333 lol!
