The Chocolate-Covered Blogroll

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. […]

Cake Batter Milkshake (raw and sugar-free) 1 frozen, large banana, as ripe as possible 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 2 tbsp melted coconut butter (you might be able to sub unrefined, melted coconut oil but […]

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.

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 […]

Breaking News: Dessert Pizza Cake!

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 […]
