Easy Soy-Free Pudding

Hello Chocolate Pudding Pies! Speaking of chocolate pudding… Last week I fixed the voluminous oatmeal post, so this week, I tackled another post in dire need of fixing: the soy-free pudding tutorial post. It was awfully confusing and convoluted. I’m re-posting the updated post so you don’t have to bother clicking on links to find […]

Raspberry Marzipan Muffins for Two

Or halve the recipe if you’re single.   The Raspberry Diet I think I’d really like that diet… the “eat as many raspberries as is humanly possible” diet. Lately, I’ve not only been eating them plain, but also in oatmeal, truffles, raw fudge cake, and now muffins: Raspberry Marzipan Muffins (makes 2 muffins) 6 tbsp flour (I […]

Soy-Free Love Potion

Remember middle school, when “going out” with someone meant his dad would drive him to meet you—and your mom—at the movies? Today I was thinking back to middle school, the time when girls discover that whole “boys have cooties” thing is a lie. My mind wandered through first crushes to first kisses to first dates. […]

Healthier Chocolate Cake

Have you ever seen the movie, Matilda? Every time someone mentions chocolate cake, I unfortunately think of a scene from Matilda, where a boy named Bruce Bogtrotter is forced to eat an entire chocolate cake. It’s so gross that even I am turned off of chocolate for a while. Miss Trunchbull kept the whole school […]

Single-Lady Carrot Cake Cupcake

Once upon a time, I devised a super-healthy cupcake to bring to a nursing home. A Popularity Contest Voted most popular? The 24-Carrot Cupcakes. With their good-for-you stats and delicious taste, it seemed everyone in bloggieland wanted to be their friend. However, the cupcakes must’ve done something to fall out of favor with the “in” […]

Banana Pancakes and Tiramisu Fudge

Yesterday, the sun decided to show its face in Texas. The night before, I’d resigned myself to another treadmill run. But as soon as I saw the sunshine, Mr. Dreadmill was stood up. Sorry, man. 😕 Seven miles, in 10-degree weather, through 5 inches of snow was surprisingly fun. No, really! The sun’s presence, combined […]

Raw Chocolate Fudge Cake

What do you like to do on Snow Days? Growing up in the Philadelphia area, we had a lot of snow days. Once, school was closed for 17 days straight! My favorite things to do on snow days: make snow cones, make snow forts, and build snow families. Oh, and then come in for hot […]

High Protein Mushroom Stroganoff

High-protein mushroom stroganoff… It’s gluten-free as well, and there’s a soy-free option. One thing of which the dish isn’t free, however, is taste! You’d think it was top-secret recipe, for how long I’ve waited to post it. This mushroom stroganoff is dedicated to my friend, Sunne. She might never see it, though, since she probably […]

Want to hear my Nutty Ideas?

My head is full of nutty ideas. Nutty Idea #1: There are so many recipes for nut butters on this blog that I decided to wrangle them together, with my super-cool nut-butter lasso, and make a special recipe tab: CCK Nut Butter Recipes Nutty Idea #2: Despite temperatures dipping way beyond freezing, with gusting winds, […]

Hamburger Helper: Vegan Style!

5 Minutes to Lunch With the help of a (vegan) hamburger. And a butternut-squash trick. Katie, how can it be “5 minutes” if one of the ingredients is butternut squash? Those things take ages to cook! True, but here’s what I like to do: Buy the BIGGEST butternut squash you can find. Roast the whole […]
