Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I swear, flourless chocolate chip cookies can talk. Yes they can. Do they ever talk to you, too? Every time I pass a chocolate-chip cookie, it calls out to me, informing me that I want to eat it. As if I needed a reminder. Chocolate-chip cookies symbolize everything that is good in the world: love, […]

Raspberry Marzipan Muffins… for two!

Good morning sunshine. Sweet red raspberries. This morning, I made a batch of Raspberry-Marzipan Muffins. For sure, one of my favorite muffin recipes. I’d forgotten how incredible these muffins are!! I could easily eat the batter with a spoon. Or rather, I do often eat the batter with a spoon… and then I am surprised […]

Single Serving Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffins! Have you ever seen the jumbo muffins they sell at places like Costco and Sam’s Club? Yesterday, out of the blue (pun intended), those muffins just popped into my mind. And suddenly… I wanted one! I had some leftover blueberries from making Homemade Blueberry Ketchup. So I quickly threw them into a single-lady cupcake mix and […]

Chocolate-Covered Katie: FAQ Page

I get a lot of the same questions over and over, and therefore I wanted to make a page where you can find them all in the same place. So here it is: My new FAQ Page. I took the old faq page down awhile back, because it was way too centered on questions about […]

Healthy snacks you can take on-the-go

Question for everyone: Do you have any ideas for portable healthy snacks? I’ve been trying to post more lunchbox-friendly recipes lately, because kids are going back to school and therefore will have no use for messy recipes like Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip. A lot of people have been asking me for good portable snack recommendations. I […]

Low-Calorie Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Perhaps an employee at Whole Foods secretly spiked my most-recent jar of peanut butter. How else can you explain why a chocoholic would crave nothing but peanut butter for the past three days? Yesterday, to feed the ever-growing peanut butter beast inside of me, I created this fast and easy peanut butter ice cream. No […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cookies

These. Are. Addictive. Very addictive. So addictive you can’t eat just one. So addictive you can’t eat just two. So addictive they should come with a warning label. Oh so very addictive. Not for sharing. Normally, I am very good about sharing my desserts with any friends who show up at my door. (And due […]

My attempt at a fashion post

Fashionable Foods Certain edible entities are so much easier to photograph than others. Strawberries, whipped cream, and pancakes all fall into the first category, whilst oatmeal and chocolate brownies definitely go into the second. One of my favorite photos ever is the Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes. They were just so photogenic! Today’s breakfast, however,  features […]

Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes

Yesterday I had ice cream sandwiches for breakfast. Take that, cold cereal. And of course, in following the “healthy dessert” theme of this blog, the above ice cream pancakes are much healthier than they look. So please feel free to eat them for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or, um, all three. Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes […]

Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles!

Hi chocolate-covered espresso beans! Ick, I tried a chocolate-covered espresso bean once. It was not good. Almost broke my tooth! And I hate how coffee beans—especially flavored ones—don’t taste as yummy as they smell. Chocolate-raspberry coffee? Snickerdoodle coffee? They sound good in theory… In reality, I’d much rather have Snickerdoodle Pancakes. Maybe with one of […]

CCK is Moving!

It’s not you, it’s me… (By the way, stupidest break-up line ever) I know a lot of you have had issues with my blog being slow or not loading for you lately. I’ve had those issues too! For a while now, I’ve been getting too much traffic for my shared server, and so I am […]

Girl Scout Cookie Larabars

I could do hot yoga in my backyard. Note: I said could, not would. I tried hot yoga once and hated it. It was just so… hot! I don’t like feeling sticky and sweaty, and therefore hot yoga is not my friend. Also not my friend when it’s hot? The oven! Lately, I’ve pushed the […]

5 Ingredient Rice Crispy Treats

Going back to school? When I was growing up, I’d often find a rice crispy treat—in that famous turquoise wrapper—packed into my school lunchbox. So rice crispy treats remind me of school… in a good way! No-bake, and they can be gluten-free! Rice Crispy Treats (Or you can make squares) 3 cups rice crispies (I used […]

Growing up and making mistakes

I don’t have all the answers. And I used to think this was a bad thing. But I’m learning that it’s okay to not have the answers all the time. I have to remind the perfectionist in me that it is perfectly normal to feel uncertain and apprehensive about the future, and it is certainly […]

Vegan Cool Whip

Oh my goodness goodness gosh. (Do I sound like a pre-teen at a Justin Bieber concert?) This light and creamy coconut whipped topping is totally dairy free, with just one main ingredient… but it has the exact same texture as real homemade whipped cream! Vegan Cool Whip (or coconut whipped cream) 1 can full-fat coconut milk (or coconut […]
