Strawberry Shortcake for One

Hi, my name is Kate. I was born in London, I have long brown hair, and I have a younger sister. Sadly, no prince charming… yet. Despite the similarities between Kate Middleton and myself, I must confess I’ve not been keeping up with the royal wedding at all. In fact, I didn’t even realize it […]

Dessert Loaves and Doughnuts

A tale of two baking pans… I discovered that if you cook the Single-Lady Cupcake in a mini-loaf pan, you can transform a cupcake into a dessert loaf… for one, of course! Yay! It’s a true Banana Bread for One. (Not that banana bread for more than one is ever a bad thing…) My other […]

World’s Healthiest Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies? Cookie Monster! The other day, I got an urge to make chocolate cookies. However, the only recipe I’d ever created was for Cookie Dough Balls. So I turned to Google. The good ole search engine led me to a recipe on Post Punk Kitchen that used oat flour instead of all-purpose. Sounded good… […]

Dessert courtesy of Whole Foods

I didn’t make dessert! On Sunday evening, we headed over to an Easter party with family friends. My contribution to the party was a savory dish, chosen to ensure there’d be something I could eat for dinner while everyone else gobbled up their ham. And so I brought my favorite Bug-a-Boo Pilaf. Most people ate […]

I love my Easter dress!!

A perfect Easter morning When I stepped outside for an early-morning run, there was a bunny in our front yard. I’m so serious! I could not believe it!! This put a huge smile on my face for the entirety of my run… and pretty much for the entirety of my whole day. Breakfast made me […]

Happy Pea-ster??

To my fellow veggie lovers… Happy Pea-ster! Sorry for the lame joke; I couldn’t resist! Above, a funny lil Africard. Happy Easter (or, to my non-Christian friends, happy Sunday). Now, go sign off your computer and eat some peas… but only if they’re chocolate-covered! 😉

All things Carrot Cake

My Easter menu is all set. Wanna hear it? Breakfast: carrot cake pancakes. Lunch: carrot cake sandwich. Snack: carrot cake macaroons. Dinner: carrot cake pizza, washed down with a carrot cake milkshake. Or maybe not. I’m actually getting a bit tired of carrot cake; it’s been such a focus of my blog for the past […]

Healthy Easter Ideas

No carrot cake?! When compiling my Easter recipes, the carrot-cake posts overwhelmed me… I’ve posted over ten of ’em. So, in order to not write the longest-ever blog post, I’m saving all the carrot recipes for a separate entry. Today’s recipe round-up is just a compilation of recipes that remind me of Easter or springtime.   […]

Chocolate-Coconut Easter Bunnies

Yesterday, I got lost. Lost in my local Michaels Craft Store, that is. By the time I found the exit, I’d made quite a few new friends: scrapbook supplies, paintbrushes, and a bunny-shaped candy mold. Right away, I put the candy mold to good use: Coconut Melties Bunny coconut melties! Who needs chocolate bunnies when […]

The Carrot Cake Milkshake

Health Food = Rabbit Food Normally this is exactly the kind of stereotype I try to dispel on my blog. But today, I’m embracing it full-force: A carrot cake milkshake! A double carrot cake milkshake, as I topped it with my 5-Minute Single Serving Carrot Cake in a Mug recipe. Two carrot cakes are better than one. Carrot […]

A book about Cupcakes

Currently… loving: Chocolate Fudge Parfaits Or really, just parfaits in general. I don’t know what’s more fun: eating them or preparing them. It’s like an art project in a glass! Currently reading: Ooh look, it’s a magazine devoted entirely to cupcakes! My friend bought this for me… and then promptly told me I had to […]

Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate

For most of the year, here in Texas, the weather is… weird. 80 degrees one day, 20 degrees the next. Sunny one minute, hail storm the next. They have a saying about Texas: If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. However, when it turns to summer, you can count on our weather to […]

Want to meet my special friend?

Good morning, and Happy Sunday! Does anyone else equate Sundays with pancake-eating? Because I don’t like to be bothered cooking elaborate breakfasts in the morning, I often cook my pancakes up ahead of time. (I’ll usually make multiple batches and freeze the extras.) This morning, when I came in from running, here’s what was all ready for […]

Spotlight: Breakfast Pizzas

Buon Giorno chocolate pizza pies! Thought I’d do somethin’ a little bit different for today’s post: My blog is filled with so many recipes that they tend to get lost in oblivion after they’re published. This makes me sad, since I work so hard on every post. Therefore, once every few weeks, I’m going to […]

Breakfast Polenta

Tired of Oatmeal? Yes, the question is ridiculous. How could anyone tire of oatmeal, with its infinite flavor possibilities? For endless oatmeal inspiration, see: My Oatmeal Recipes. Sometimes, however,  it’s good to have variety. And it’s always good to have polenta! Brekkie Polenta (Serves 1) 1/3 cup dry cornmeal (40g) (I use whole-grain) 1 cup […]
