Monkey Muffin for One… and CCK is Moving!

Chocolate-Chip Monkey Muffin is the Single Lady Cupcake flavor of the day. But I don’t really know why I decided to call this a monkey muffin. It’s not in any way reminiscent to monkey bread. For some reason, monkeys just came to mind as I peeled the banana. So “monkey muffin” it was. I used […]

Bread-free Vegan Stuffing

My Thanksgiving main dish was amazing! The mashed lentils acted almost like a thick gravy over the flavorful veggies.   Really, this is more like pot pie. But I already have a Vegan Pot Pie Filling. So for the above recipe title, I needed to get creative. Got creative with the actual recipe as well. […]

Check out my Vegan feast!

At some holiday gatherings, there is very little for vegans to eat. Thursday’s Thanksgiving feast, however, was not one of those parties! Literally, every time I blinked, a new vegan dish appeared. Anthony Nelson, your new genie is ready. 🙂 Dishes included the incredibly easy, yet so delicious Vegan Magic Mushrooms, and my favorite Creamy Vegan […]

Attack of the Brussels Sprouts

So… who went out shopping at 3AM? Yeah, I said three. Apparently, five isn’t crazy enough anymore. Stores such as JC Penney and Kohl’s opened their doors at three in the morning. But Walmart had ‘em beat: they opened a minute after midnight! My own Black Friday has been super-lazy so far. I didn’t even […]

A Blueberry is not a Pumpkin

Hello chocolate chips! Happy Thanksgiving! It’s a cooold one here. I just got back from a miserably-windy run (“feels like 31” with 30mph wind), and now I’m looking forward to a warm breakfast. The house smells like cinnamon, as I made vegan Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for my whole family! Well, everyone except the little sister, […]

Reader Request: Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

I bet some of you are probably thinking: . Ok, enough with the Thanksgiving-themed posts already! I promise that, after this week, I’ll lay off the pumpkin recipes for awhile. But for now, a lot of you have requested a Thanksgiving-recipe round-up. (Maybe because you’ve seen other bloggers doing similar round-ups?) So here goes: Pumpkin […]

Single-Serving Pumpkin Cream Cupcake

Hey Cacao Nibs! Yesterday I offered Thanksgiving main-dish idea: Vegan Lentil Mush. So, for today, how about dessert? You start out with a yummy Vegan Pumpkin Muffin for One. Then you cut a hole in the center. For the filling, ya know. (Read on; we’ll get to that!) Fill the hole, using the fun “Whipped […]

Vacation in Raw Chocolate Land

From What About Bob: Dr. Catherine Tomsky: Take a vacation. Dr. Leo Marvin: I’M ON VACATION! … . Vacation! A whole week of not writing essays, not rushing from class to class, and not opening a textbook. On Friday, I celebrated as soon as I got home: Raw Chocolate Melties I’m grateful for all the […]

A Foodie invades Whole Foods

Look out, Whole Foods! Sadly, I must admit that all self-restraint flies out the wide-open window whenever I go to Whole Foods.  On each trip to the healthy-food haven, I always manage to bring home at least one new product I don’t really need! Last week’s trip saw me leave with two new products. Okay, […]

Whipped Cream’s Healthy Makeover

Don’t tell me that, as a kid, you didn’t enjoy eating bowls of plain whipped cream. What? You didn’t? It was just me? Especially around Thanksgiving, I could’ve done without the pies. Just give me the heavy cream and nobody’d get hurt. Therefore, I am head-over-heels in love with this recipe. It’s light, airy, and… creamy! […]

Spaghetti-Squash Chili

Why do people think fast food has to be unhealthy? When I got home from class, yesterday, I was hungry, so I wanted something that could be thrown together quickly. But that didn’t mean sacrificing health for convenience. In truth, this meal came together faster than I could’ve even driven to the closest McDonald’s: Spaghetti […]

Microwave Lemon Cake

I was never big on lemon-flavored desserts. (Hmmm, might it have something to do with the fact that lemon doesn’t exactly pair well with chocolate?) But, after reading the Single Lady Cupcake post, a few commenters asked about a lemon version of the single-serving cake. Enter Meg L. to save the day! On Sunday, she […]

Does Harry Potter like Sweet Potatoes?

Are you excited about the new Harry Potter movie? I am! A few of my friends and I started an HP-watching marathon, where we’ve been getting together once or twice a week to watch the first six movies in preparation for the seventh (which comes out on November 19th). Last night I invited them over […]

Baby Oatmeal Cakes

Yesterday’s snack: Two mini boatmeal cakes topped with cinnamon swirl peanut butter! Recipe: Baked Oatmeal Cake For One Times the above recipe by two, and you’ll get my snack. Two oatmeal cakes are better than one, right? For the miniatures, all I did differently was use two 1/2-cup ramekins (any oven-safe dish will do) in […]

Big Changes for my Blog

I’ll talk more about this in the coming week. Meanwhile, so I’d still be able to have a voice if things get wacky, I did something I swore I’d never do… Yup. I’ve sold out and am now on Twitter: Follow me! Changes have come to my appetite too. I finally craved a salad again. […]

I ate Candy for dinner

Do you know someone who “hates” vegetables? I’ve always had a sneaky suspicion that people who claim they “don’t like vegetables” simply don’t know how to properly cook them. Honestly, would you like vegetables if your veggie repertoire consisted of canned peas, overcooked broccoli, and ketchup? But, if given my dinner from last night, I’m […]
