Peanut Butter Mousse Oats

Sounds all kinds of fun, no? It all started when I put a scoopful of the following straight into my oatmeal: Peanut Butter Frosting Um, wait, but isn’t there a cupcake under there? Nope, not yesterday, there wasn’t! It was frosting, then oatmeal, then frosting. Then oatmeal. And then more frosting! I gobbled down the […]

Spinach Ice Cream??

Spinach Ice Cream? The spinach will be our little secret; I swear you cannot taste it at all! It’s an ice-cream version of a recipe posted a few weeks ago. This recipe: Mint-Chocolate Milkshake. (That shake is one of my fave recipes on the whole blog!) Finally the weather’s getting warmer. When I discovered that the […]

Vegan Greek Yogurt… in stores!

Ooh-la-la… lactobacillus! As someone who went vegan before the Greek yogurt craze hit, I never had the chance to try Greek yogurt. So even though I never missed the taste, I did wonder why everyone was so crazy for the sour-smelling stuff! (No, I’m not allergic to dairy, so I could technically take a taste […]

“Irish Soda” Oatmeal Cake

Oatmeal Cake… for One! It’s like eating a giant oatmeal cookie, all by yourself! You might worry that oatmeal cake won’t keep you full like a big bowl of hot oats, but guess what: This cake is so dense and so filling! For Thanksgiving, I posted this recipe: Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal. Afterwards, I made a […]

The Chocolate-Covered Blogroll

Now we can tackle some real problems, like how I’m gonna get all my St. […]

A New Unsweetened Almond Milk

But first, I have an important question to ask: Cake or Frosting? Even as a little kid, I was a frosting-over-cake girl; I always vied for those frosting roses. Did any of y’all do that? (I’m not sure I even liked the taste; they were just so gosh-darn pretty!) Anyway, in my exuberance about the […]

Raw Chocolate Raspberry Mini Fudge Cake

Remember my Raw Chocolate Fudge Cake? You’ve probably all seen it by now, because I can’t stop raving about how much I love it. What’s not to love: Chocolate? Check.

Mmmm Oatmeal Cake

Currently… Eating: Baked Oatmeal Cake Today’s flavor was pumpkin-chocolate-chip. With Dagoba 100% chocolate pieces. Also: Cauliflower “Chicken” Nuggets But not together! No, definitely not together. Just two dishes I happen to be loving lately. Reading: ‘Cept my copy happens to have a girl on it. Boo. Does anyone else ever wonder why running magazines seem […]


But first, I have to share: My sister’s response to yesterday’s post: @ChocCoveredKt Thanks for discussing my consonant mispronunciation on your blog. But stutters are cool now thanks to Colin Firth! I *heart* my sister. She is too funny! Below, little sister, when she couldn’t say my name: And me, when I used to bite […]

But first: Thank You! Truly, heartfelt thanks for your sweet comments on my photo yesterday. Your compliments mean so much to me. No, not because I’m vain; because I’m self-conscious! It’s terrifying, posting photos of myself on the blog! I’m guessing a lot of y’all probably feel the same way. And now, big news for […]

Katie, the Black Swan

What do Black Swans eat? I just know that’s what y’all were wondering on Oscar night, wasn’t it? Not so much? Well, just in case you did wonder, I’ve got your answer. According to, the black swan is a vegetarian. (Natalie Portman is a vegetarian, too!) When my friend threw an Oscars costume party […]

Raw Thin-Mint Brownies

Ding Dong! During a certain time of the year, a knock at the door might mean one of two things: Jehovah’s witnesses or girl scouts. If it’s the latter, chances are they haven’t come empty-handed. Samoas, Tagalongs, Thin Mints. A few weeks ago, I decided it’d be fun to try and re-create said girl scout […]

Goodbye Larabars!

You say goodbye, and I say hello… Note to readers: I am not above giving shout outs in return for chocolate. But just to let y’all know: I don’t sing Larabar’s praises because they sometimes send me surprise packages out of the blue. I’d sing their praises anyway, as I truly love the Jocalats. This […]
