The Chocolate-Covered Blogroll

Pin It!

Bonjour, chocolate croissants!

Eh, actually I think chocolate croissants are boring. Too much flaky dough getting in the way of the chocolate! Luckily, though, I have the perfect antidote to boring:


Cake-Batter Milkshake

See? The antithesis of boring. Problem solved.
Now we can tackle some real problems, like how I’m gonna get all my St. Patrick’s Day recipes posted before next Thursday!

The Chocolate-Covered Blogroll

In the past, I’ve been hesitant to write a blogroll, even though many people have requested one. I cannot stand when peoples’ feelings are hurt. Whenever someone excludes me from something (such as a list), I always feel so sad! So I try really, really hard to never be the source of someone else’s hurt feelings.

It’s also why I never participate in giving out #ffs on Twitter (although I must admit to being super-excited when others include me in their #ffs!)

I do want to make a blogroll, to highlight all you awesome bloggies out there! But I don’t want to play favorites or turn it into some kind of popularity contest where peoples’ feelings end up getting hurt. So if I’m on your blogroll and you want to be on mine, I’ll be happy to include you!  Just let me know in the comment section! Smile

oatmeal puddings

Tomorrow, a new addition to the list of My Oatmeal Recipes.

Any guesses as to the flavor?
Hint: Raisins are involved. (The above picture is not of tomorrow’s recipe.)

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—>

    Am I worthy of your blogroll? 😀

    1. I’ll put anyone on there who has me on theirs. Well, maybe not some creepy spammer lol. But you, my dear, are no such thing!

      1. VeggieGirl says:

        I don’t have a blogroll, but if I did you KNOW you’d be on there!

  2. I would be honored to be on your blogroll

  3. That’s a tough question for you, Katie. You have so many readers that I am sure the question of your blogroll must be tough..

    But onto more important things-like guessing the new flavor of your oatmeal!

    Oatmeal raisin cookie?

  4. You better believe you are on my blogroll, you adorable blogger, you! If you feel like reciprocating, that’d be pretty boss. :)

    And I’m gonna guess… banana raisin bread oatmeal? Is that a thing? Hahaha.

    1. Emma says:

      If it’s not, it should be!

  5. I would be honoured if I was on your blogroll! 😀 As to the oatmeal recipe – oatmeal raisin cookie oatmeal? Carrot Cake oatmeal? (Trying to think of recipes which use raisins! :P)

  6. I would be honored to be on your blog roll if possible, I’m so inspired by all your recipes and of course I have you on my blog roll!

  7. well OBVI you’re on my blogrolll- id be a dumb butt if you weren’t! i would LOVE to be on your blogroll but even if im not- i still love you!!!!
    ps. you posted at the perfect time 😉

    1. Hahahahaha! You’re gonna turn into a banana, girl! But if you do, please make it a talking banana. I’d miss you otherwise :(.

  8. Hey CCK! You are definitely on my blogroll, I’d definitely like to be on yours, and I’m definitely trying the cake batter milkshake ASAP.

    What temp. do you heat the coconut oil at to melt it (in the micro)? I’ve not tried that yet. Thanks!

    1. If I’m using the microwave to melt it, I’ll just put the jar in (regular power) for 20 seconds. But for coconut butter, I actually prefer melting in the oven. You turn the oven to 200, get it hot for 10 minutes, then turn it OFF. Then you put the coconut butter in for like 10-20 minutes (or longer if it’s a super-cold day). I find that melting coconut butter in the microwave can burn it.

  9. nadia says:

    howdy, you are on my blogroll miss – one of my favorites no doubt! :)
    I would be honored to be on yours although I know I am still a baby of the blogging world so I understand if you are reluctant.,
    p.s. (my 1st time high-volume oats were PERFECT today, feel like I swallowed an oatboat!

  10. My blog roll is reaallly old – it really doesn’t hold much meaning as of right now. Thanks for reminding me to revamp it!

  11. I haven’t updated my blogroll in months, but if you aren’t there NOW you will be (whenever I finally update the darn thing). I’ll let you know.

    Raisins are involved? You made Raisin Bran out of oatmeal?

  12. You’re most definitely on my blog roll! I love your bloggy so much!! I’d be dumb if you weren’t on my blogroll! 😀

    Ummm, it your oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Cookie? Apple Cinnamon Raisin related??


    1. Emma says:

      Oh gosh, Apple Cinnamon Cheerio Oatmeal! That should be made!

      1. I totally agree! 😀


  13. Your blog is one of the first ones I put on my blogroll!

    Hm, all I can think of is oatmeal raisin cookie oatmeal, but you already have the oatmeal raisin pudding recipe (which I adore, by the way!) so I’m not sure.

  14. Molly says:

    I am semi-new to blogging, so I haven’t made my blogroll yet AND I just had the honor of discovering your awesome blog. But rest assured, it has certainly been added to my bookmarks, and will fo shiz make the blogroll once mine is created!

  15. Veronica says:

    No need to add me to your blog roll, my recipes aren’t vegan on my cooking blog and I doubt you’d have any interest in my weight loss blog as your struggle is to keep weight ON! lol! I do enjoy reading yours, however, and don’t feel hurt at all that I won’t be on your blogroll. It’s hard to guess what scrumptiousness you’ve now developed in the form of oatmeal….how about Almond Joy (coconut, chocolate & almonds) oatmeal? I’m fairly new to your blog so I don’t know if you’ve already done that one!

    1. Aw, you’re so sweet! If you ever change your mind, I’ll be happy to include you!

  16. Would love to be on your blogroll. Would be an honor and so every excited about a new CCK oatmeal recipe!!!!

  17. Gen says:

    Can’t wait until tomorrow’s recipe!!!!
    I don’t really like chocolate croissants either…my main problem is that I like the chocolate part more than the croissant part….the same goes for cake or pie. If the cake isn’t chocolate, I’ll just eat the frosting =P and I eat chocolate pie filling out of the crust! hahaha
    You’re definitely on my blogroll! =D

  18. Amalia says:

    Is it Irish Soda Oatmeal Bread?? Because that would be delicious AND festive!

      1. Amalia says:

        Praise God! That just sounded so delicious. I was just going to make that today! I can’t believe how in sync we are! And, I can’t wait to see if you used caraway. I am indecisive… :)

        1. I did use them, but I had to search! They were in the VERY back of the cabinet!

      2. OMG that is a great idea! I become temporarily addicted to Irish Soda Bread every March.

  19. Kat says:

    I’d love to be on your blogroll :)

  20. T says:

    Hey CCK! You’re on my blogroll and I’d love to be on yours! I’m also following you on twitter :)

    Those cakebatter milkshake pics are making me drool…

  21. You’re on my blogroll!
    …And now reading through these comments I’ve seen the word “blogroll” so many times that it sounds very strange.

  22. kathleen says:

    i’d love to be on your blogroll. that milkshake looks so good. man i should not read food blogs while starving. it makes me want to eat my computer screen.

  23. Girl you are on my blogroll! It is under my “Faves” page. I would be honored to be on yours too, love!:)

  24. katie says:

    thanks for the tip about melting coco butter in the oven, i always burn mine!!

    you are most definitely on my blog roll! :)
    i would be honored to be on yours!

  25. crys says:

    Hi Katie :-)

    I posted this same comment on HEAB’s website, because I know that you both might be insightful on the topic of coconut butter!!

    i had a q about the use of coconut oil vs. coconut butter — maybe you could elucidate this a little for me? i bought WF’s brand of unrefined coconut oil and put it on my oatmeal this morning, but i was kind of disappointed to see it melt into actual oil — my oatmeal literally just had oil sitting on top of it. I know that both you and heather are huge fans of Artisan’s brand of coconut butter! Have you looked into the differences and nutritional differences b/w oil and butter? I’m wondering if I should go back and exchange the coconut oil for the Artisan’s butter. Will the butter work well with roasting veggies too? I roasted from brussel sprouts in the oil last night, and it was pretty delicious :-)

    Thanks!!! ps- love the blog.

    1. I don’t think you could roast veggies as well with the butter. It’s more like the consistency of peanut butter. It has a taste kinda reminiscent to shortbread. As for nutritional differences, here’s a link to what Artisana says about it:
      I like the butter better, but I agree with you that coconut-oil-roasted b sprouts are amazing!

  26. I feel ya on this one too. I have such a small blogroll and I am the worst at keeping up with it. I will add you though…not to just be on yours, but because I like you!

    1. Aww wow, Sarena, that means SO much to me! Especially since I think your blog is so awesome!

  27. Andrea says:

    I’ll be making the cake batter shake today, I’ll letchya know if it tastes like cake batter – I have had the ice cream 😉 in my past, you know. I made some golden cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World this weekend…I licked that bowl clean (TMI??), that’s what cake batter tastes like! Yum. Weird.

    Anyway, you’re on my blogroll! :)

    1. Ooh definitely do let me know!
      And that cookbook rocks. I have it too! I want to eat the photos!

      1. I have that book too! I never loved cupcakes so much. And my family constantly begs me to make the mint chocolate cupcakes – and they’re afraid of veggie/vegan food! :)

  28. A.Cook says:

    You are on my blogroll and if you think I’m worthy of yours, then I’d love to be on there :)

    As to the oatmeal flavor, I was going to guess cake batter, but the raisins made me change my guess to Irish Soda Bread flavor??? Just a guess…

    1. lol you still have my old blog url. Here’s the updated:
      I’ll be happy to add you!

      1. A.Cook says:

        Haha yeah right after I posted my comment I went on mine and checked and saw that too. Duly updated! At least you know I’ve been a fan for a while :)

        1. Aw lol I would’ve listed you anyways!

  29. Kristine says:

    You have been on my blogroll for awhile, Id love to be on yours :)

  30. Camille says:

    Is it oatmeal raisin cookie oats!?
    I don’t have a blogroll, but if I did, you would definitely be on mine!

  31. you’ve been on mine for ages girl 😀

    I hear ya though. I get so many requests from bloggers to get on my blogroll but I’ll always reply the same: my blogroll is for blog I read DAILY, not just someone I know or whatever. so it’s tiny ;). xx

  32. Hi Katie! You are on my blogroll! :) And I would be honored to be on yours. You’re so sweet to offer that up.

  33. Namaste Gurl says:

    Your totally, 100% on MY blogroll, no worries in that department! I’d love to be included in yours :)
    I’m guessing carrot- cake oats? My favorite combination :)

  34. You are such a sweet and beautiful person! I think it’s awesome that you are putting the offer out there for anyone who wants to be on your blogroll. You are on mine fo sho! Your blog is one of the first blogs I ever discovered and I totally fell in love! 😉 I would love to be on your blogroll. Thank you for the opportunity sweet thang! <3

  35. Erin says:

    You’re on mine, I’d love to be on yours!

  36. jenniee says:

    When are you picking the winners for the jocolat thing?

    1. I’ll post it sometime in the next three days. Don’t mean to be cryptic, but I just haven’t decided my schedule yet.

  37. Of course you’re on my blogroll and I’d love to be on yours! Oh my, you would be so sweet to do it that way because with as many readers as you have it could take you forever to compile a list!! <3

    1. haha yeah… I’m kinda finding that out right now!

  38. I would LOVE to be on your blogroll. I am always making your recipes and sharing them on my blog. You’re on my blogroll and mentioned often in my posts :)

  39. I’ve been reading your blog forever in Reader and realized you weren’t on my blogroll! AH, but I just added you and a bunch of others that I realized I didn’t have on there! I’d love to be on yours too. Your blog is amazing! :)

  40. Heather says:

    You are certainly on my blogroll!

    I would love to be on yours! I am pretty sure that your list will be ridiculously long, given that your blog is so fantastic!

    1. Hey Heather, I tried to add you, but it says your blog doesn’t exist :(. Did you leave the wrong link, by chance?

  41. Kari says:

    My blog’s still a baby, but you’re totally on my list. I’d be beyond stoked to make yours, but wow, your list would be loooong. You’re too dang popular I guess. :)

    My guess for the oatmeal flavor: Rum raisin? I’m sure whatever it is will be delicious.

    1. Emma says:

      Oooh I want that!

  42. Renée says:

    Would you be willing to send me the recipe for skinny fudge babies that you mentioned a couple weeks ago? :)

    1. I have been wanting to post this for-evah! Annoyingly, though, I misplaced the recipe! But if I remember correctly, it’s basically just the peanut butter babies’ recipe with pb2 (which, I think, is just peanut flour?) subbed for the peanut butter. If I find the actual recipe, I’ll definitely letcha know. And let me know if you make them! Sorry I can’t give a more specific detailed recipe at the moment!

      1. Renée says:

        Okay, thanks! I’ll give it a try maybe next week, I need to restock my pantry haha.

  43. You have been on my blogroll, I’d love to be on yours :) Thanks Katie

  44. eve says:

    Would love to be on your blogroll!

  45. Aw, Katie you are so sweet! Always so concerned about others :) such a good quality. You have always been on my blogroll, because you were one of the veryy first blogs I started reading! Its weird to think back to when I first started reading blogs! Hmm..

    And raisins…. perhaps cinnamon raisin bread/roll oatmeal? Or pannetone oatmeal haha!

  46. Sherri says:

    Your blog has been on my blogroll for ages for the simple reason it’s my fave vegan blog!!!! But I would never want anyone to feel like they had to put mine there’s so do as you wish, I will still stop by everyday, even if I don’t comment everyday, I am here. :) Have a great day!!!

  47. You are already on my blogroll, my dear, but I completely understand your logic behind not totally loving them. If you create one I would be honored, but if not- no big!

  48. I don’t have a blogroll, but I do love your site. :)

    Keep on, keepin’ on!

  49. Ohhh… can I be on your blogroll? You’re def on mine! :)

  50. Oh Katie you are way too sweet.
    You are of course on my blogroll so if you wish to include me on yours I would be very happy!

  51. You are so sweet Katie! I would LOVE to be on your blogroll if you were so kind as to include my little old blog!!! :)

  52. Cat says:

    I’d love to be included on your blogroll, but would totally understand if you didnt have the room! Hmm raisins – makes me think of cinnamon rolls with raisins, or possibly monkey bread. Would I be close if I guessed cinnamon is also involved? I feel like raisins are never without a healthy dose of cinnamon!

    The cake batter milkshake looks to die for. Done and done – making it tomorrow.

  53. Rachel says:

    doll face, you are absolutely on my blog roll! chocolate foodies unite! i would be so honored to be a part of your list as well :)

  54. Heather says:

    Thanks for the heads up Katie! Try this link and let me know if it works!

  55. You were totally added to my blog roll as soon as I started it! How could it not be! I’d be honored to be on yours! :)

  56. I feel the same way about blog rolls. I have even debated taking mine down because I don’t want anyone to feel bad! You are on mine, since I have been reading your blog since the beginning of time. Well, beginning of blog time for me.. back when it was CCV :)

    1. Awww, I miss those days!
      You are definitely now on mine. You’re one of my weight-lifting motivators, since I loathe it so much. I am inspired by you!

  57. Jaime says:

    You are most definitely on my blog roll – I’d love to be on yours fi you want to include me!

  58. Amanda says:

    You’re on my blogroll and I would love if I was on yours…thanks for being so kind and offering to everyone! (

  59. shannonmarie says:

    You’ve been on my blogroll for a long time, but I totally understand you not having one until now. I’ve just randomly added to mine to keep track of some of the blogs I like to visit or those who have requested to be there. It is hard to keep up.

    My first guess on the oatmeal would be an oatmeal raisin cookie, but that’s too much like the oatmeal raisin pudding thing you already did. I also considered apple raisin or rum raisin, until I thought about your St. Patty’s Day comment. It’s got to be related to that. Irish soda bread has raisins. Otherwise, I’m stumped.

      1. shannonmarie says:

        Yippie! I got it right. Can’t wait to see it.

  60. You’re definitely on my blogroll I love your blog and I would be honored to be on yours :)

  61. You are definitely on my blogroll and I would be honored to be on yours!!!! Who wouldn’t want to be on a chocolate covered blogroll?? lol

  62. Sam says:

    You’re on mine :)

  63. Serena says:

    You are definitely on my blogroll & I’d love to be on yours C:

  64. Brandie says:

    You been on my blogroll for a long time :) I don’t have a very LONG ‘roll, but I’m tryin! :) You so sweet! And, also, OMG you’re killin me with the cake batter recipes. Yum? I want to eat them all! I’m going to gain a illion lbs. Haahah! 😉

    1. LOL you’re so cute! And you’d BETTER come with me to Bliss when you get here!!!!

  65. Freya says:

    You’re on my blogroll :) [and have been for a long time!]

  66. Susan says:

    That is the same reason that I don’t have a blog roll! I won’t lie; I get SO excited when I make it onto someone elses though.

    My guess is….cinnamon bun oatmeal?

  67. You’ve been on my blogroll for 2 years and I would love to be on yours.

    I am so torn about what to do about my own blogroll b/c although every single blog on my blogroll I do read, I don’t read them all daily, and some I don’t read much anymore but used to be a more dedicated reader of that particular blog. Life changes, interests change, and I dont want to un-blogroll people but once it’s up, it’s hard to change it. And I don’t want to step on any toes.

    If I could give you one unsolicited piece of advice, you have gone THIS long without one, really truly deeply examine the reasons WHY you think you want one and how it would benefit you/your site, and then once you know that…proceed accordingly. Trust me, I kind of want to take mine all down :)

    1. I just want to return the favor to everyone who’s included me, because it makes me feel so happy! I want to GIVE happiness too :). But yeah, I see where you’re coming from. I guess if the person doesn’t read yours anymore, or you disagree with their point of views in their blog, by all means take it down!

      If, for some strange reason, someone with a blog about the awesomeness of slaughterhouses wanted to be on my b-roll, I would run the other direction as fast as I could! So I guess I’m not going to include everyone who wants to be on there after all lol.

  68. You are on my blog roll!! Can I be on yours? :)

  69. Stacey says:

    Your on my blogroll! In fact, I just recently discovered your blog and I love it!

  70. Izzyy says:

    I know what you mean about hurting people’s feelings – it’s so awkward to single some people out and leave others out :( But I also relate with being super excited when I see I’m on someone’s blogroll – makes me feel special 😉

    You’re on my blogroll, and IF youd like, I’d love to be on yours! No hard feelings, though, if I’m not!


  71. You’re already on my blogroll!

    I’d love to be on yours! 😀

  72. That cake batter milkshake looks AMAZING!! :) So pretty, I must try.

    I know what you mean about feeling excluded; it does make me feel a little bad when some people don’t add me their blog rolls but it seems others I know are included, or when I am left out of something in general, lol, but it doesn’t make me like them any less if their blog is awesome. 😀 Some people just forget or it doesn’t occur to them. No biggie! We should only list that blogs that we like and/or that link to us, and I would say more of the latter. Link exchanges are helpful to everyone involved and make an emotional decision more logical when it comes to business. Or so they say. 😆

    I’ve had you in my blog roll for a long time and would love to be in yours, BUT even if you don’t add me, I understand and love your blog!!! And your babies. hehe

    Don’t worry too much, Katie! :) You rock!

  73. OHMYGOODNESS I thought I was the only one!! I don’t like doing #ff’s either, because I don’t want anyone to feel underappreciated…but then if someone #ffed me, then I’d feel bad I hadn’t #ffed them if that makes sense…a vicious cycle!! I feel the same about my blogroll too really…!

    And OBVIOUSLY you’re on my blogroll!! I want to give you a special blogroll just as a shrine to you, but then other people would feel bad, endless cycle etc! 😛

  74. Amy Bee says:

    Ohh I would love to be added to your blog roll (you have been on mine since I started blogging). You were one of the first blogs I came across and reading about your chocolate covered treats and great attitude to life has helped me a lot :) If you don’t have space thats okay lovely!

  75. I’d love to be on your blogroll, Katie! As for the oatmeal, I’m guessing oatmeal raisin cookie oatmeal? Not very creative, I know, but it’s the first thing that came to mind! The blueberry oatmeal picture looks amazing, too!

  76. bitt says:

    You are on mine, I’d love to be on yours. I prefer to only be on a blogroll if that person is a real reader, otherwise it feels forced. But I’ve really appreciated the traffic that bigger blogs have given me through their blogroll and I feel I can do the same for littler blogs too. I feel no shame in deleting blogs from my roll if the person changes their diet around or stops blogging or whatever. It’s not personal! I try to keep my blogroll to reflect the blogs that fit into the lifestyle and eating habits I have. But everyone has their own way of doing it.

    1. Well, you HAVE to be on mine, then, because I DO read your blog. I don’t have time to check blogs often, but I will read yours due to the yummy raw recipes! And I still wanna know: where was that healthy expo thing you went to, with the raw cupcakes and chocolates? I wish they had one of those near me!

      1. bitt says:

        You are too sweet. That was a bake sale, so some of the cupcakes and such were just a one-time deal but the store is a shoe store/chocolate shop that’s all vegan. Come out to Seattle and I’ll give you a tour. :-)

        1. Oh Seattle. I should’ve known! Lucky lucky lucky…!

  77. Clair says:

    You are on my blogroll! I’d love to be on yours, but if you find you end up with an insanely long list, there will be no hurt feelings here. No worries. =)

    Thanks for always being so honest in your posts…I think that voice is what makes you so popular.

  78. Oatmeal raisin cookie?

    I don’t have a blog roll for the EXACT reasons that you mentioned. But if I did have a blog roll (still thinking about it :) ) you would DEFINITELY be on there! 😀 I would love to be on yours! But if you don’t put me on (I definitely don’t want you to feel obligated too – you have so many amazing readers it would be hard to put them all on), I promise I won’t take it personally and will still check back every day for some chocolate-covered amazingess! 😀
    And your so sweet to worry about everyone’s feelings!! :)

    1. Hey pretty lady!
      If you do get around to making a blog roll, you’d better let me know so I can put your lovely face on mine too! :)

  79. Iris says:

    I’d love to be included in your blogroll. You’re definitely on mine!

  80. You’re on my blogroll and I’d love to be on yours. :) Good luck with all these, girl!! You’re quite the popular blog!!

  81. Emma says:

    I wanna be on a chocolate covered blogroll! Makes me think about starting a blog just for the chance ;).

  82. One of these days I am going to add a blogroll to my site.. used to have one through bloglines, but they really messes that up! I’d love to be added to yours..

    Cake Batter Shake.. oh yeah!

  83. You’ve been on my blog roll ever since I started it lol! Thanks in advance for adding me to yours!

    Perhaps cinnamon raisin for the oatmeal flavor?

  84. abby says:

    i don’t have a blog, but that oatmeal looks seeeeeriously yummy! oh wait, that’s not what tomorrow’s recipe is though. hmmm, what about cinnamon roll oats? i know it’s been guessed, but i’m guessing it again!

    1. abby says:

      oh wait, or chocolate covered raisinette oats!

  85. Hey Katie! Love the blog, and your chocolate-covered-genius has been featured on my site since the dawn of bloggie time! I realise you may not be able to include everyone, but even so, just wanted to say I’m a huge fan of your delicious philosophy and colourful, happy posts!

  86. Gina says:

    I’m in love with your blog and all of your delicious desserts, how could you not be on my blogroll 😉
    I’d love to be on yours too!

    I don’t like croissants either! Too buttery and dry. Just give me the chocolate, :)

  87. You’re on my blogroll, Katie! I love your little blog posts so I have it as a thumbnail that I can click at my leisure.

  88. michelle says:

    You’re definitely on my blogroll!

  89. You are indeedio on my blogroll, and have been since day one of starting my blog! If you are a reader of my blog, I’d looove to be on yours!

  90. I have you on mine and would LOVE to be on yours! :)

  91. Lisa says:

    im pretty sure I have a blogroll, but it’s not visible on my page with my current layout. But if it was visible, I’d totally put you on it!!!! your site rocks :)

  92. Verity Kae says:

    Youre on my blogroll!! <3

    As for oatmeal flavours…. cinnamon raisin PB flavour?

  93. Aubrey says:

    Of course your in my blogroll:)!
    I’d be so honored to be on yours!!!
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Aubrey,
      The link to your blog doesn’t work :(.

  94. I haven’t had the time to develop a blogroll, though sometimes I think about doing it! I was contemplating doing it over spring break, but we’ll see. :) If I had one, you’d be on it FOR SURE!

    1. If you do make one, please let me know so I can add you! (To be fair to everyone, I’m only adding others who have one, but you can be sure you’d be on mine too!)

    I need to set up a blogroll. i’ll add it to the ever expanding blog to do list! Can I ask you to add me when I get to it? You’ll definitely be on there.. I kind of use your recipes and read your blog religiously.

    1. Yes ma’am! For sure! When you get yours up, please do let me know and I’ll add you ASAP! :)

      1. haha you might get yours up before I do!

  96. Megan says:

    To be honest I don’t understand what a blog roll is.. Ha.
    Please explain? :)

    1. It’s a list of links to other blogs. Here’s an example:

  97. I’d love to be on your blogroll! You’re on mine :)

  98. I’m working on making one, but you’re definitely on it! I’d be honored to be on yours but don’t stress over putting me on there or anything!

    1. Just let me know when yours is up, and I will definitely add your name to mine :).

      1. It’s up and running! I read Averie’s comment above, and I LOVE your reasons for starting your own blogroll! Such a sweetie :) I read your blog every day though, even when I should be leaving for class…

        1. Haha I’m so glad… because I WRITE my blog posts when I should be leaving for class… 😉

  99. No doubt at all that you’re on my blogroll! I think it’s extremely sweet of you to think of people’s feelings like this :)

  100. Hi I’ve added you to my blogroll too loooonnnggg loooooonnngg ago because I’m one of your BIGGEST but most silent-est (sorry!) fans!!!
    I’ll be ecstatic if you add me too!

  101. Damjana says:

    I’d be honoured to be on your blogroll, you’ve been on mine for two years now, and one year on Google reader :). Actually yours was the second blog I ever found on the web (after KERF), and I loved it immediately!

  102. We do not have a blogroll either for the same reasons. I guess we will have to reconsider, if Katie is making one, we should too :)

    And of course you would be on their!!
    Love ya

    1. If you ever do make one, I will put you on mine in an instant! (I would anyway, but to be fair to everyone else, I guess I can’t. But you’re in my reader hehe)

  103. Ooh, me please! You’re already on mine :)

    And regarding the oatmeal… Cinnamon Raisin? Rum and Raisin?

  104. Albizia says:

    I had the same concerns about the blogroll. Someone can always get hurt. So I finally completely removed mine. The way you decided to deal with the problem is interesting and you will probably end up with the longest blogroll in the blogosphere because I bet all your readers (including me) would be honored to be on your blogroll :)

    And I think I’m gonna make some noise tomorrow morning… I just can’t resist your milkshake recipes anymore 😛 .

  105. Lucy says:

    You are definitely on my blogroll! You were one of the first blogs I discovered – I love seeing all you’re creations! I particularly love your naughty girl fudge (my mum now “commisions” me to make her batches as fuel for her marathon training!) & planning to make your pumpkin boatmeal for breakfast on Monday, yum! :)
    Would love to be on your blogroll too…you’re going to end up with such a long list though!!

  106. Oh, oh, oh! You are totally on my blog list! I love all of the super fun things that you cook and even though I’m not vegan, I can certainly appreciate tasty food. I would really, really LOVE if you added me to your blog roll.

  107. Heather says:

    Hi Katie! I love your blog.. and I cant wait to try this new cake batter milk shake. I made your yummy raw chocolate fudge cake.. it was excellent!
    I had to take a day or so to decide to comment because I am a newbie in the blog world, and only have a handful of posts. At the very least, I hope that people will visit my blog by reading through your comments.. I know I have found a few new blogs to follow that way

    1. No worries! I don’t care how new your blog is, I’ll still add you. Everyone starts out sometime, right? :)

  108. So that cake batter milkshake looks AMAZING! Must. Try. Now.

    Also, I’m creating a blogroll for my blog later today! I plan on including your cute self.. and I’d love to be added to yours. :)

  109. youre on my blogroll and id love to be on yours!

  110. I remember emailing you a long time ago when I started my blog to ask you permission to include you in my blogroll!!! And, I would love to be included in yours now- it would be an honor actually :)

    Blog: Master of Her Romaine

  111. You bet you’re on my blog roll, girl! I’d love to be on yours!

  113. I would LOVE the opportunity to be on your blogroll Katie!

  126. Kristie says:

    I’m a tad behind on my blog reading but I’d love to be on your blog roll if I’m not way beyond late here, I’m sure you’ve been working crazy hard on it already! And naturally you’ve been on mine and I’ve been following your lovely blog since the beginning of time. Pretty sure yours was one of the first I started reading…and I’ve never stopped! You da best 😉

  127. Hi Katie,
    I just added you to my blog roll because your recipes sound awesome and I LOVE finding great dairy free treats!!

    1. Aww thanks, Jessica! I will add you to mine (which I hope to have up next week, but will definitely be up by the week after that!).

  128. Alright, cool, here is my comment. I would love to be on your blogroll. :)

  129. Emily K says:

    I would love to be on your blogroll because as I’ve said befor you were my inspiration for getting started. Hopefully I haven’t missed your blogroll boat.

    1. Emily K says:

      Don’t know why the link didn’t show up. Oh technology! Maybe I’m not worthy of the blogroll after all but just in case here it is a non tech saavy way:

      1. Hey Emily, to be fair to everyone, I’m only adding people who have their own blogrolls. But if you ever make one, I’d be happy to add you.

  130. I finally updated my blogroll and you are in it!!!!

    I’d love to be included in yours, thanks!

    1. Ooh lol I just put two and two together that you have a new blog!!

  131. Charissa says:

    I would love that…Ill try to have mine up as soon as I can.

  132. I’ve just begun blogging, but I’d be honored to be included!!

    1. To be fair to everyone, I’m only adding people who have their own blogrolls. But if you ever make one, I’d be happy to add you.

  133. Tulika says:

    I’d love to be on your blogroll!! (And as soon as I make a blogroll of my own, you will definitely be on it). :)

    1. To be fair to everyone, I’m only adding people who have their own blogrolls. But when you make one, please tell me and I will be happy to add you!! :)

  134. Beth says:

    You’re on my blogroll, though my blog is in its infancy so I’m not sure you’d want to include it!

  135. Your on my blogroll. But you really don’t need to include me if you don’t want to, my feelings wont be hurt! 😀

  136. Marina says:

    Of course you’re on my blogroll :)
    It would be great if you added me to yours, but I understand if you already have too much people on it 😀

  137. Emma says:

    Hi Sweetie! I’d love to be on your blogroll! Yours was one of the first blogs I started to read on a daily basis – it’s doesn’t feel right if I don’t check in with my fave bloggies :-) The main reason I like to read your blog (apart from your AMAZIN recipes) is that you are such a warm person with a heart of gold. It exudes from your pages, brightens up my day and makes me wish we lived closer!

    1. Awwwwww. Emma you really are a sweetheart!!!
      Right now, though, because I have so many requests, I’m only adding people who have their own blogroll. If you make one, I will put you up there asap!

  138. Emma says:

    This is where I’m at!

  139. Brandi says:

    I’d love to be on your blog roll if it wouldn’t be to much of a hassle.

  140. ~Jessica~ says:

    If it’s not too late to be included, I would be so grateful to be on the CCK blogroll!


  141. I have been reading your blog for a couple months and really like it! I just made my blog a few days ago, and haven’t made a blogroll (still kind of in the process of learning all of this haha) but it would be nice if you put me on yours because I’m trying to get more people to read mine! and I’m going to have awesome giveaways! Like Justins nut butter giveaways! (Just won a whole bunch of jars of the stuff)

    1. Thanks, Logan! If you ever do make a blogroll, let me know and I’ll add you to mine.

  142. Hi Katie! I would love to be added to your blogroll! I created my site just a few weeks ago, but its slowly but surely coming together :)

  143. k, just figured out how to add blogroll and you’re on it:)

  144. You’re on mine, I’d love to be on yours! :)

  145. Lindsay@Brownies For Brunch says:

    Being on you blogroll would make my day!! I love your blog and I visit it daily!

  146. Lisa Fine says:

    1. If you ever make a blogroll, let me know and I’ll happily add you :).

  147. sara says:

    you’re on my blog roll — i’d be honored to be added on yours!

  148. Maisha says:

    Hi Katie,
    I’ve been following your blog for about a year now, and I love it. My first encounter was the fudge babies, they changed my life 😉 I have my own blog and you’ve been included on my blogroll right from the start, I just never got round to mentioning it. I’d love to be included on your blogroll!

  149. Bella says:

    now you can’t forget me :)

  150. Allison says:

    Thanks! Quite a list you have going.

  151. Pretty please with a chocolate-covered cherry on top may I be listed?
    As soon as I pick up some bananas I’m going to get a nice addiction to cake batter milkshakes going…my parents will be so proud

  152. I haven’t made a blogroll yet, but when I do I will be sure to include you! I wouldn’t mind getting added to yours 😉

  153. I’d love to be on your blogroll my blog is mainly fitness orientated but it does have food, a lot of it is vegan and all of it is vegetarian :-)

  154. Katie, you love chocolate as much as I do, maybe even more. Of course you’re on my blogroll. I would love to be on yours :)

  155. Claire B. says:

    Hi Katie, you are on my blogroll and I would love to be on yours! My blog is Gluten Freedom at Hope you’re doing well!!

  156. Emily says:

    I would love to be on your blog roll Katie! My blog is quite new and I’d love to have a bit more traffic on it. Thank you!
    My blog is

    All the best!

    – Emily

  157. I’d love to be on your blogroll! You’re on mine 😉

  158. Hi, Katie! Wow, I bet this has become a huge undertaking. If you update again sometime, can you add me to the list?


  159. Alyssa says:

    Hey Katie! I’d love to be on your blogroll :) Youre on mine!

  160. emma says:

    Pick me pick me!! 😀

  161. Katie says:

    Turns out I’m a really smart kid and thought you were on my blogroll but I didn’t have you listed! (even though I told you I did :)). Anyways, due to my smartness, you don’t have to add me to yours since you already did all the work but wanted to let you know that I added you–this time for real :)

  162. meg says:

    I would love it if you would put me on your blogroll, Katie! I haven’t been on my blog much lately but I plan to start blogging much more often! You are of course already on mine :)

  163. Hi Katie, if you get chance please could you add me to your blogroll?? =)

    1. Yes ma’am!! I probably will update after the bake sale, which is completely monopolizing my time right now, but the next time I update, I will definitely add your loveliness :) :).

  164. Jojo says:

    Hello! I am in love with your blog! I just started writing one, and I hope I can be on your blog roll. I will definitely put yours on mine 😀

  165. Em says:

    I’d love to be on it (:

  166. Please add me to your blog roll! PS that milkshake looks AMAZING :-)

  167. Christine says:

    Would love a mention on your blogroll. You’re already on mine, as I love, love, love your babies and creative, yummy desserts.

  168. Mihika says:

    Oooh, I’d love to be on your blogroll! I’ve been hooked on your blog since I found it searching for Larabar recipes – and found fudge babies! CCK is on the ‘blogs I follow’ part of my profile.

  169. You’ve actually inspired me to MAKE a blog roll and now I can follow everyone in an organized fashion! You’re on there girlie!

  170. oops, i should have commented here instead 😛

    1. Hey sweetie,
      As I wrote in the blogroll post above, I’ve ONLY included people who have their own blogroll. I needed to at least *try* and make the list smaller. But if you ever make a blogroll, I’d be happy to add you.

      1. ahhh ic ic- that makes sense. I should probably look at making one, and for sure, i’ll let you know if/when i do. have a great week love <3

  171. I don’t have a blogroll… nor do I know how to make one. I’m fairly new to the blogger world! But I’d like to be included if I’m still eligible. I love your blog by the way! Just discovered it & I’m so happy I did!

  172. Mandiee says:

    Heya Katie! I just realized that my comment never posted :(. It would be an absolute honor to be on your blogroll. Please add me if there is still time. I think it’s so nice of you to add people to your blogroll. It’s really a great way to hear about other great blogs!

    Have a lovely day!

    1. Hi Mandiee!

      As I told Kelsey (above you), I’m only adding people who have their own blogrolls. It’s a way for me to at least *try* and make the list a little shorter. But if you ever make a roll, I’ll happily add you.

  173. I am in the process of making a blog roll page & I am definately putting you on! I will let you know when it’s up :-)

  174. yay, just got my own blogroll.. its a work in progress but i made sure to put you on it right away! <3 xoxo

    1. I probably won’t get around to updating again for a while, but when I do, I promise I’ll add you!!

  175. I made my blogroll!! It’s rolling with wonderful people- like you and your scrumptious recipes :)
    bad pun, I know, but it’s up!

  176. jc says:

    can i be please added, pretty please?

    my blog is called “An Apple A Day” Thank you!!!

  177. You are currently at the top of my blogroll!
    I’ve been following your blog for a while, and I decided to start my own!

  178. karla says:

    I recently started a blog about trying hard to convert to veganism (and help my BF convert to a less meat-filled diet, along with other friends in my life!). I’d be honored if you added me (when you have time!). I’d really love to meet other people working on making this kind of change. 😀

    1. I’ll add you in the next update! :) :)

      1. karla says:

        Thanks! I’m excited to meet others in a similar situation..seems like lots of the people I know at work and school are not so down with the vegan/veggie foods. Le sigh!

  179. Morgan says:

    I would love to be included on your blogroll!

  180. I am just starting out with my healthy living/life-casting blog and your blog is one of them that inspired me to do so! I’d be honoured to be on your blogroll. You’re on mine 😀

  181. Amy says:

    If I could be added to your blogroll, that would be great! 😀

    1. Hey Amy! I will definitely add you in the next update (which might be a while, but I WILL eventually do it).

  222. Ellen says:

    Hi Katie, I realized I told you I added you to my roll, but did realized i did not actually ask to be on yours and maybe should have. Would you mind adding me? It’s a vegetarian blog, not vegan-I hope that’s ok!

    I must admit, when I initially read the title of this post from the spinach ice cream post, I read it as “Chocolate Covered Broccoli” and was very intrigued. So much that I had to comment 😀 Great looking blog!

    1. LOL that might be yummy… Maybe not ;). Hey, but you never know!

    You’re on my blogroll (: You’re one of my faves! Shhh don’t tell those other food bloggers…

    1. Aw thank you!

      I actually don’t have a blogroll anymore (or at least, not one that I display on the site), but if I ever re-do it I’ll add you!

    Would love it if you could add me to your blogroll. I added you to mine – such a fantastic blog with great creative inspiration.
