S’mores Whoopie Pies

What’s black and white… And smothered in gooey marshmallow fluff? S’mores Whoopie Pies! A few weeks ago, my first attempt at s’mores whoopie pies went terribly awry. So terribly awry that I won’t even post a photo. Let’s just say they looked more like whoopie pancakes than pies. I wanted to give the experiment another […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake

Everyone’s favorite sandwich… is now a milkshake! Best Dressed No, I’m not talking about the Oscars last night. I’m talking about the milkshake I made Saturday afternoon; it was gorgeous! Earlier in the day, I went with a friend to find costumes for an Oscars party, and all that shopping made us thirsty. We saved money by […]

Throw an Oscars Theme Party!

(Note: If you only read my site for new recipes, rest assured there’ll be a new recipe posted both tomorrow and Tuesday!) I had fun with this post. Theme parties are always fun to plan, and virtual theme parties are even better. (No mess!) But I did run into a little trouble, having only seen […]

Why I won’t give up chocolate for Lent

This is what temptation looks like: Rich chocolate temptation: Chocolate Cream Pie. When I was younger, I gave up something every year for Lent. One year it was shopping, another year was instant messaging (anyone remember aol?). At fifteen, I gave up dairy… and then never went back! And one crazy year, I gave up […]

Banana Bread Breakfast Doughnuts

Move over, powdered jelly doughnuts… These sweet banana bread doughnuts resemble a thick slice of gooey banana bread, hot from the oven: Doughnuts for breakfast! Do you remember my sprinkly Cake Batter Doughnuts? After that recipe, I ‘d planned to go on a doughnut-making roll. So many possibilities swirled in my head: peanut butter & jelly […]

Fat Tuesday Pancakes!

Fat Tuesday! I had grandiose plans for this day: Chocolate pancakes made with Homemade Nutella! But do you see a chocolate nutella pancake recipe in this post? No, you don’t. That’s because I got completely confused and thought Mardi Gras was next Tuesday. So bummed… I’d wanted to try creating a recipe for King Cake, […]

Flourless Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Food Network Challenge! Last weekend, a group of us met up for an informal soccer game at my friend Matt’s house. Afterwards, as everyone sat around with a beer, one of my friends jokingly asked, “Where’s dessert, Katie? You always bring dessert.” It’s true. I’m constantly pawning off food on friends, because I like to […]

Vegetables that are Addictive

Can vegetables be addictive?? According to the October issue of Vegnews magazine, frying is the only cooking method that can make a vegetable addictive. The writer’s obviously never tried Cauliflower “Chicken” Nuggets. My roommate has decided that recipe is her newest-favorite way to eat vegetables. On a recent trip to the grocery store, I found […]

Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pie

You will fall in love with this chocolatey pie. Are you in love yet? How about now? Back when I was in high school, a few friends and I started a tradition of an annual “girls’ night” on or around February 14th. Going off to different colleges forced us to skip a few years, and […]

Double-Decker Coconut Berry Sandwich

I’ve been single for two years. Sure, I’ve gone on dates, and even a blind date. But it’s been quite a while since my last serious relationship. I kinda like being single! (Not that I want to be single forever, but it’s fun for now.) My roommate is single at the moment, too, and so […]

It’s a Chocoholic Giveaway!

Love Shmove. Everyone knows the real reason to celebrate Valentine’s Day: it’s a great excuse to unapologetically consume exorbitant amounts of chocolate. So whether or not you buy into the manufactured holiday, don’t miss out on the chance to stuff your face with chocolate treats. Most likely, you can already think of about a million […]

Takes just 10 minutes It can even be fat-free. I’ve always been intimidated by jelly roll cakes, but this recipe is one of the easiest things I’ve ever […]

Red Velvet Pancakes

Cake for breakfast. Good morning, indeed. I’ve written before about my friend Andrea. I still think of Andrea as my chatterbox middle-school friend with braces, always chasing after boys. So it’s funny to see her now, as a married mom of a five-year-old daughter. Kristin (her daughter) is the sweetest little girl, and I’m always […]

Healthy Valentine’s Day Desserts

Yes, Valentine’s Day isn’t until next week, and I still have more new recipes to publish before it comes around. But I wanted to get a “Valentine’s Day Recipes” post up early for people who like to plan ahead. Normally I try to keep my round-up posts concise (10 recipes or less), so as not […]

At the TV Studio…

Everyone with a DSLR camera, get ready to be jealous… On Tuesday night, I was invited into the News 8 studio to watch as they filmed. I loved it! I got to meet the incredibly gracious news crew and get a behind-the-scenes view of what goes on during a live broadcast. Then, when my story came […]
