Dining Out, Vegan-Style

Identity Crisis! Today, my name is Katie Crunk, and I can be found on my friend Bianca’s blog. She, in turn, can be found right here! Stick around as we attempt to sort out this mix up ;).   Hey everybody! This is a Dirty South Crunk takeover of the lovely Miss Chocolate Covered Katie’s […]

Retail Therapy

So yes, I have gone back to college. And already, I’m missing the slower-paced days of summer. Tell me if this happens to you: By the end of the summer, you’re totally ready for school to start again… but then, two days into the school year, you want summer back! Lucky me, I’m only 5 […]

CCK, the College Years

It’s finally time to continue with the “CCK Goes to College” story. As I wrote in Chocolate Covered Katie’s College Story: Part One, it was definitely a good choice to cut my losses and transfer schools; a bigger university with more class options was a much better fit for me.  Right away, I made a lot of […]

Nurse Katie

Life really isn’t fair. I know I sound like a petulant child for saying this, but sometimes it’s true. Here’s my reasoning: My mother is the most amazing woman in the world. (Of course I am biased, but I’m not the only one who thinks so. Many of my friends agree; my fifth grade class […]

Chili Night with the Guys

Last night was guys’ night! Wait a sec, Katie. You’re not a guy. Yeah, yeah. But sometimes I feel more comfortable hanging with the guys. Does anyone else feel this way? My sister’s like that too: we sometimes joke that we have more guy friends than girls. Guys are much more easy-going! So, last night, […]

Raw Snickerdoodle Cookies

Ya know, for someone who will never be a raw-foodist, I sure do have a lot of raw recipes. I even have a separate raw recipe tab! And now it’s time for yet another creation that falls under this tab: Hmmm… I bet these’d be good alongside (or inside) a big bowl of Snickerdoodle Oatmeal! […]

Soy-Free Vegan Yogurt

No, I don’t eschew all soy. I believe that all most foods in moderation are perfectly fine. But that’s exactly the point: moderation. The problem with soy is that these days it’s in everything, from beverages to vitamins to Fritos! And unlike the Japanese, who have been reaping the health benefits of soy foods for […]

Where be my Little Mermaids?

Growing up, did anyone else love The Little Mermaid? Pink Lady meal: chocolate pb (unpictured) and Strawberry Shortcake Pudding. And then I babysat for the world’s most energetic child! (Note Henry in the background. If you try to get too close to him, he’ll run away. Poor guy is deathly afraid of the water. Thinks […]

I feel so Loved!

I’ve met SO MANY amazing people thanks to blogging. I’m sure most of you feel the same way. Some of y’all are more like me than anyone I know in the real world. It’s sad to think that, even just a few years ago, people could go through their entire lives with no way to […]

High-Protein Spaghetti??

I love little health-food stores. You can find things you’ve never seen before at the big ole Whole Foods. Case in point: spaghetti made entirely from black beans! Strange pastas just seem to find me; I’ve even seen chocolate pasta before. And you might recall my “mushroom spaghetti” post. Seeing how much I love pasta, […]

Raw Carrot Cake

I’m not normally a raw-carrot person, but the above was as dreamy as it looks. And now I’m still dreaming about it! I almost didn’t make it, though. When I looked through the cookbook, Raw for Dessert, I folded down a lot of recipes! Cashew Cream, Crème Brulée, Chocolate Pudding, and on and on. These recipes seemed […]

Another “saucy” product review

I hope you like product reviews, because you’re going to be seeing a lot of new product reviews in the coming weeks. Some are products I found while on vacation. Others are from a few companies who contacted me, asking me to do a review. While I was away, they shipped me fun samples, which […]

Don’t be afraid to be Yourself

Before I left NY, I made sure to catch up with a few friends. And by friends, I mean those of the fur variety. Lions and tigers and… horses and pigs and cows and bunny rabbits and geese and goats and, well, you get the idea. Yesterday, I saw all these guys and more. Whenever […]

Goodbyes and Leftovers

I always knew it had to end, but when the time actually came to say goodbye, it hurt just the same. Oh gosh, you are probably all rolling your eyes at my mushy-gushiness! But I’m sad about a boy right now, and I don’t care who knows it! Who can say if this is the end for […]

“Raw for Dessert” and a giveaway

  Giveaway time! So far, I’ve made two desserts from the Raw for Dessert cookbook (err, un-cookbook, since nothing’s actually cooked). What I like most about this cookbook is that many of the recipes—although raw—are simple to whip up (i.e. no dehydrators or laundry lists of ingredients). Early next week, I’ll highlight one of the […]

"Healthy Cookie Dough" is where the party’s at

Another birthday-themed post? I have birthdays on the brain, thanks to my upcoming one next month. What can I say? I get excited early!! But this post isn’t about my birthday. It’s about my mom’s, which was earlier this year. We weren’t late in celebrating; I just forgot to post about it. That simply won’t […]
