Blend Yer Oatmeal!

Happy Saturday morning! Blended Oatmeal Pudding I used the famous “Blended Oatmeal” Trick on the oatmeal. Then I added banana and a healthy dose of peanut butter. Perhaps it was the addition of the pb that helped me to not miss my chocolate. Or maybe it was the oatmeal, itself. After all, I love oatmeal […]

One time, I stole red underwear.

My mother wouldn’t buy them for me.  She said they were Satan’s panties. Quick: Who knows the source of this quote? . I’m so glad you liked yesterday’s Single Serving  Cupcake recipe.

Listen to your Body

Lately all I’ve wanted are roasted veggies, with nary a salad craving in sight. I find it fascinating that my body automatically adjusts to the seasons. (Wow, I’m such a nerd.) Since it’s important to listen to your body, I’ve been roasting everything on which I can get my chocolate-covered hands: brussels sprouts, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, […]

Did you know I have a Twin?

Did any of you ever see the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movie, It Takes Two? For the most part, I could not stand MK and Ashley Olsen movies. I mean, hello! All the plots were exactly the same: girls go to foreign country, girls meet cute boys with hot accents, girls save foreign country […]

Pumpkin Doughnut Holes: Vegan-Style

Hello vegan chocolate doughnuts! Normally, when I think about doughnuts, I think about Boston Cream Pie. Boston Cream Pie was one of my sister’s and my favorite doughnut flavors when we were little.

Return of the Vegan Cupcakes

Once upon a time, I decorated cupcakes. Such as the above vegan, personalized, 100%-edible Shopaholic Cupcake. But sadly, life was just so busy this past year that my cupcake-decorating hobby fell by the wayside. Time for a resurrection! I was invited to a Halloween party, and I will not miss this opportunity to make more […]

Getting Personal On The Blog

Going back to last week… The recent post led to one of my favorite blog discussions. I wanted to highlight one comment, in particular, because it sparked my motivation to write today’s post. The comment: . Katie, one of the reasons I love your blog and read it regularly (besides the healthy recipes, of course!) […]

Homemade Banana Yogurt

Yesterday started out well, with a morning run in cloudy 58-degree weather (perfect running weather). However, near the end of said run, a gnat saw me and decided my right eyeball would make a nice home. Note to Mr. Gnat: my being vegan does not stop me from hating you!! The last ten minutes of […]

Fudge Babies for $100

Well, I’m thrilled to say that the batch of fudge babies brought in $100! The pressure was certainly on to create a batch of extra-special babies for the winning bidder. She requested two kinds of babies […]

This New Product is a Hit

Have you ever been to a baseball game? What comes to mind when you think of baseball food? Hot dogs, nachos, cheese fries?  Not exactly vegan-friendly. For some reason, I always associate chili with baseball. So, in honor of my Texas Rangers, I incorporated chili into yesterday’s lunch. Normally, I don’t watch tv while I […]
