      Wow, they all sound amazing and I am sure they are! But I have a serious peanut butter obsession and would love to try the Reeses Pieces Frosting and have always been looking for a healthier puppy chow recipe!

    2. Lisa says:

      CAKE!!!!!! Wait, was that too excited???? Should I have been more refined????? I would be ever so grateful if you would post a new cake recipe….Nah, can’t do it……I LOVE CAKE!!!!!! I hope you take this into serious consideration and I will diligently be watching your site for your decision…..probably with the cookie dough cake while I wait…..

    3. Catalina says:

      Definitely pancakes above all; they’re an integral part of my morning routine!

      Then probably the Red Velvet Fudge cake; after that, the Strawberry Cheesecake Dip, and lastly, according my to hierarchy, the Pink Princess Cake.

    1. Elzie says:

    Lemon Squares please!! :)

  27. Lani says:

  29. Katerina says:

    Definitely want to make Chocolate Puppy Chow and Healthy Lemon Squares for my mum, but we both will love whatever you chose (all sounds so delicious!)

  30. Cherie says:

    Pancake recipe
    Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    Secret Spaghetti Sauce

  31. Lani says:

    PS I made your tofu chocolate pie “filling” it was delish. No one knew. I also added a little cinnamon and fresh nutmeg.

  32. Jill Frank says:

    Well, my top choice would be the strawberry cheesecake dip as strawberries are in season in NC and I have been picking like crazy. But, by reading all the other comments – we are not helping you much. Seems like we would all love to see all the recipes. Looks like you will have posts for months to come!

    1. I think if I posted twice every day from now until Christmas, I wouldn’t run out of new recipes I need to post. My list just keeps growing longer and longer :-?.

      1. Samantha says:

        This is great news for the rest of us!

  33. Amy says:

    I vote for:

    Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip

  36. Anika says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    and a new pancake recipe!

    sooo excited!!

  37. Karen says:

    I’m also w/the red velvet fudge cake, since regular Puppy Chow is easy to make w/vegan choc and vegan cereal. We need CCK’s creativity w/a velvet cake! :)

  38. Debbie P. says:

    Not in any particular order…
    Secret Spaghetti Sauce
    Healthy Lemon Squares
    a new pancake recipe…

  39. As a Mom and former princess (now Queen), for Mother’s Day, I’d love to see your Pink Princess Cake and Healthy Lemon Squares recipes. Also, I was wondering if you would consider my Chocolate Sorbet recipe “healthy”? It doesn’t have any fat in it, just some sugar… Merci!

    1. I know others will disagree with me, but I think some sugar in moderation is perfectly ok in a healthy diet.

      1. I totally agree with you on this Katie. It’s all about moderation. :)

  40. Rebecca says:

    Most definitely the lemon squares!

  41. Amy D. says:

    Lemon Squares please! Thank you so very much. <3

  42. Christie says:

    I’d love to see Lemon Squares and Hot Chocolate on a Stick, please! BTW- Did I tell you that your lemon poppy seed mini muffins were a HUGE success in our house? I think I did, but just in case…;-) They were SO light and had just the right amount of lemon flavor. YUMMY.

    1. That really makes me happy!! :)

  43. Kimii G. says:

    Definately the new pancake recipe and dog chow sounds interesting!

  44. Suzie says:

    Wow, looks like you have been busy– all the options sound fantastic! But I have to go with Healthy Lemon Squares for my first choice :)

  45. Lindsey says:

    I’d love to see the “Healthy Lemon Squares” recipe!

    Do you include your international fans in your giveaways as well?

    1. Hmmm… that’s a good question. Usually I do, but the Vita giveaway is hosted by the company. I’ll have to ask them!

  81. Katia says:

    Not sure if replying on someone else’s post counted as a vote.
    Red velvet fudge cake and secret spaghetti please. I really want to try more of your non-dessert recipes. I’m addicted to roasted cauliflower and I used to hate cauliflower.

  82. Anat says:

    OMG! So many recipes to choose from :)
    well the Reeses Pieces Frosting is a big NO from me…. Not a fan of pb.
    I like pink so the Pink Princess Cake is a winner 😉
    But I’m searching for a good cheesecake so Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip is also a recipe I would like (willing to wait for it two weeks)

    PS. I’m dreaming having a VitaMix. That’s an awesome giveaway!!

    1. Anat says:

      just noticed that it’s not a cheesecake, so I’ll stay only with Pink Princess Cake (even though all the recipes souns delicious, besides that Reeses Pieces Frosting)

  83. colleen says:

    LEMON SQUARES!! my mom is allergic to chocolate and those are her favorite!!

  87. Heather says:

    Chocolate Puppy Chow! (And maybe the Reese’s Pieces frosting too!)

    BTW, what is the frosting in the cupcake picture above? It looks delicious…like lick the computer screen delicious…

      1. Heather says:

        Well, in that case, my vote goes 100% towards the frosting. I’m drooling over here and don’t know how long I can wait!

    Red velvet fudge cake and lemon squares! Both sound awesome.

  89. Sarah says:

    Lemon squares!!! I have been looking for a version that isn’t a complete sugar bomb!

  90. Courtney says:

    Secret spaghetti sauce sounds like the best idea ever! I have two giant spaghetti squashes that need some love.

    That being said, my momma loves her some cheesecake, and I love me some fruit (especially strawberries!), so that is my number two vote.

    Now I want a strawberry shortcake. That single lady cupcake will have to do 😉

  91. Anonymous says:

  118. Allie says:

    Lemon squares lemon squares! Okay, so everything sounds good, but lemon squares are so different from the usual chocolate/baked goods, and my mom (and I ;D ) just so happen to love lemon.

  119. snenny says:

    Puppy Chow
    Pink Princess Cake <- which, coming from a non-pinky person, is surprising!

  138. Crystal says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip
    Sugar Cookie Bars

    My top 3!!

  139. Jill says:

    Chocolate puppy chow. I’ve been obsessed with puppy chow forever, but had to give it up because it’s so horrible for you!

    1. Samantha says:

      Wait. What?! This is a real thing? Off to look this up…

      1. Samantha says:

        Well my life just got changed. How did I get this far never hearing about puppy chow. Now I REALLY want to see your recipe for this so it can be my first puppy chow recipe ever!

        1. I hate the name. We used to call it Trash Chex. Others call it Muddy Buddies… none of those names are very appetizing!

          1. Samantha says:

            Wow! I have never heard any of those versions! Trash Chex is pretty funny. :)

  140. Jen says:

    Red velvet, Princess Cake, Lemon bars!

  141. Mary says:

    My vote is for Healthy Lemon Squares.

    P.S. My bro made one of your chocolatey recipes the other day & it was sooo good!

    1. Sheesh says:

      ooooh yes please, healthy lemon squares!

  142. Aly says:

  143. Jennifer says:

    Puppy chow and lemon squares, please!!!

  144. Kelsey says:

    Red Velvet cake, pleeeeeease! One of the best cakes of all time, and it will certainly be that much better once you’ve healthified it!

  145. Annie says:

    Lemon squares please and puppy chow!!

  146. Demetria says:

    So many choices! Here’s my vote:
    1) Red Velvet fudge cake
    2) Healthy lemon bars
    3) Secret spaghetti sauce

  147. Emily says:

    I vote for lemon squares and the red velvet fudge cake. Those both sound DELICIOUS!

  148. Oda says:

    yuumm, I´m eating your water-melon sorbet in a slushy-version (with a little mineral water, nom!) right now, it is so (brainfreezingly) good!! I am so giving this to my future children when they want slush, it´s just so good, even better than the sugaroverloaded slush from the stores!

    Please I really want to try out the healthy lemon squares! It sound so delish! The Norwegian national day is coming up, and it´s time for candy! And ice cream! And cake! (But I just got massive cravings for the lemon squares when I saw it now.*drooling face*)

  149. Sarah says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake or Pink Princess Cake would both make me happy :)

  150. Ohh so excited to hear your announcement! And all of those recipes sound great! I’d love the one of the pink princess cake and reeses pieces frosting!! Omg and a vitamix giveaway?! That’s like my dream!!!!!

  151. Sandy B says:

    Healthy lemon squares please!

  152. Oo! What’s the exciting news!?

    My vote is for a pancake recipe

    That was quite the hint! Wow!!

  153. Maxene says:

  154. Lindsay says:

    Reeses Pieces Frosting
    lemon squares
    sugar cookie bars

    and thank you for including carbs in your nutritional information!!!

  155. Sarah says:

    Healthy lemon bars!! Also, could you try to healthify a version of rainbow cookies? I LOVE THEM, but I hate knowing chock full of butter, sugar, and almond paste.

  156. Jill says:

    Puppy Chow, please!!

  157. Mandie says:

    They all sound SO good, Katie!

    But, if I had to choose my top choices would be –

  159. Rebekah says:

    Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip, definitely! Especially if it’s soy free.

  160. Anonymous says:

    Sugar Cookie bars!!

  161. Melissa says:

    My vote:

    1. Gluten free
    2. Sugar free
    3. and SWEET!

    I’m not too picky, ha ha

  162. Chelan says:

    If you’re giving away a VitaMix blender, I might just have a heart attack from shock. But an I Love Lucy mug would be good too!

    I’m trying to think like my mother, who only ever gets excited about Shortbread (and Hot Tamales)… so my vote is Sugar Cookie Bars. That’s close to Shortbread, right??

    FYI I keep making your desserts for various gatherings and my husband and I make your chocolate chip cookie dough (with 3 ingredient chocolate chips) at least once a week. It tends to take the place of dinner on date night… or any night we forgot to get dinner-like things… 😛

    1. Aww :) :)

      And yes, it’s a whole Vita-Mix. Haha Lucy not included ;).

  163. Rebekah says:

    strawberry cheesecake fruit dip. Especially if its Soy free.

  164. Jenny D says:

    All my votes go towards a new pancake recipe! I rotate between all your currents ones and would love to see what you come up with next! I do use your blueberry (sans blueberries) as a base for pumpkin, sweet potato and chai pancakes but you always come up with something I didn’t even know was missing in my life!

  165. They all sound great but especially the lemon squares and red velvet cake :-)

  166. Laura says:

    Secret spaghetti sauce (would love to see a mealtime recipe!)
    but if we are doing sweet… then the healthy lemon squares!

  167. Lucy says:

    Please please please do the pink princess cake– my daughter is turning 1 in the next few weeks and I am looking for a pink healthy/vegan cake to make for her!

  168. Tara says:


  169. Ahh so many great options! I’d LOVE to see the recipes for hot chocolate on a stick, healthy lemon squares, Reese’s Pieces frosting, and a new pancake recipe :) You’ve been busy!!!

  170. Sabrina says:

  173. Angela says:

    1. Sarah the official CCK drooler says:


  174. Sarah Z. says:

  175. Anna A says:

  181. Rebecca Behre says:

    Reese’s Pieces Anything

    Now my mom is mad at you cuz I won’t eat the quinoa (barf.) she made for lunch after seeing these recipes. Deal with her. Just kidding. She likes the pb bread and chai shakes WAY too much to be mad at you :)

    1. Haha not today anyway ;).

  183. Katie Campbell says:

    Red velvet, Lemon squares, and resees pieces frosting sound fabulous!!

  184. Sara says:

      1. Sarahishealthy says:

        I vote that one too!

        I guess we could always leave 25 separate comments ;).

        1. Sarah the official CCK drooler says:

          So, Tammy do you want to see red velvet cake? Just taking a wild guess…. :)

  186. lyss says:

    What? You made me a cupcake and I can’t eat it?!! lol!
    Just yesterday I was wishing for a vitamix! Hoping…praying…wishing….! :)
    I’d love to see how you “healthified” Lemon Squares. My recipe has TONS of sugar!

  187. Crystal says:

    Anything red velvet wins my vote! Also, I NEED that Vitamix!!

  188. Nicole K. says:

    They all sound DELICIOUS. But these make my top 3:

    1) Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip
    2) Lemon Squares
    3) Chocolate Puppy Chow


  189. Jackie says:

    Lemon squares would make me so happy :)

  190. Jacqui says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares! My mom used to make unhealthy (but delicious!) lemon squares for our lunches growing up, and it would be great to return the favour in a healthy version!

  191. Weird, a Jackie posted just before me and also said Lemon Squares, lol. Must be a name thing..

  192. Betsy says:

    Sugar cookie bars, please! It’s so hard to find recipes for these that aren’t 75% butter and white flour.

  193. Janice says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares!!

  194. Jess says:

  200. k says:

    I am down with pancakes, Chocolate Puppy Chow (cause what the heck are they?!) and Healthy Lemon Squares.

    1. Hannah says:

      You’ve never had puppy chow!! Your missing out

  201. k says:

    Thank you, Katie!

  204. Anna says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares sound awesome!!!!

  205. Charissa says:

    Wow! So many choices….I think I’d like to see the puppy chow and the fruit dip. All of them sound amazing though.

    What kind of frosting did you use for the cupcake?

      1. Charissa says:

        Oh. my. Can I change my answer to “REESES PIECES FROSTING!!!”? That picture keeps speaking to me. It says “Bite Me”…in a good way, lol

  206. michelle says:

    ill take the spaghetti sauce too…..
    Reese’s frosting

  207. Sophie says:

    I’m all in favour of the red velvet fudge cake and lemon squares, but I bet anything you decide to post will be really good!

    And i can’t wait for the giveaway! Those are always fun.

    Random Thought: You should make a healthy (or at least healthier) pop tarts recipe. That’d be awesome!

    1. That’s another one I actually have and still need to post! :)

      1. Sophie says:

        Ooooh, yay! Does the recipe have chocolate? I sure hope so!

        You should really post that one too, but maybe after the whole what-to-do-for-mothers-day problem is resolved. I’d rather have the red velvet fudge cake (is it healthy???? because that’s like a dream come true)

        1. I guess it could have chocolate in the filling!

  208. Katrina says:

    Reese’s Pieces Frosting!!!!! OMG — I would LOVE to have a Vita-mix! I’m so jealous of everyone that has one and I wish I could join the cool crowd but I can’t afford one right now. Awesome giveaway!!

  209. Christy says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares <– I have a crazy love affair with lemon squares, cake etc

    Secret Spaghetti Sauce <– ooh I love secrets!! Spill!! :)

  210. Nicki says:

    Oh… sugar cookie bar please!

  211. Cate says:

    LEMON SQUARES!!!!!!!!!

  212. Susie says:

    PLEASE the lemon squares!
    Red Velvet Fudge Cake sounds good too, but you have so many like that, and the healthy lemon squares would be perfect for upcoming graduation weekends in the hot sun!

  213. Jenn says:

    Lemon squares!!! Pretty please?

  214. Dawn says:

    Reeses Pieces frosting!!! Hot chocolate on a stick and/or anything else with chocolate in it!
    Can you guess what my favorite food group is…….?

    1. Glad you know it’s a food group 😉

  215. Heather says:

    1. L. says:

  223. L. says:

    Oh dear… Reeses frosting and red velvet cake for me!

  229. LaNita says:

  231. ~Jessica~ says:

    I’d love to see the secret spaghetti sauce and the pancake recipe: I love your savoury creations just as much as the sweet :)


  232. Janice says:

    VITAMIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Omg, I’ve always wanted one! Especially ever since I saw that some of your recipes require a vitamix and I only have the magic bullet :( Ugh, my mother has been looking around in some stores such as Bed Bath and Beyond and they’re always so expensive… I hope I win this one! It would be by far the win of my life! <— That was probably a little too strong but really.. it would make our day!

  233. Liesel says:

    ~Pink Princess Cake

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake

  244. Hannah says:

    PUPPY CHOW! It was always a favorite in my household growing up. We have a box of whole wheat chex in the pantry now, I was just thinking the other day — “I bet Katie could make an incredible healthy version of my old favorite!”
    Thats so weird it’s on your list. Great minds think alike.

    Plus! Puppy chow is a favorite party treat.

  245. Three words: PANCAKES, RED VELVET!

  246. Angela says:

    Reese’s Pieces Frosting!

  247. I like the plain cake with chocolate icing; I think that combination’s better than chocolate cake with chocolate icing, weirdly! I like the sound of the spaghetti sauce and lemon squares… possibly not at the same time though 😉

  248. Ashley says:

    Chocolate Puppy Chow
    Healthy Lemon Squares
    Reeses Pieces Frosting
    I have no idea how you’re going to narrow these down…I had hard enough time limiting myself to 4!! x)

  249. Hannah says:

    First, thank you thank you thank you. I have been getting your emails and following your pins on pinterest and am in love with nearly everything you make! I love getting people to eat your awesome recipes and then have them guess if they are healthy or not :). I think these would be awesome:

    Sugar Cookie Bars
    Secret Spaghetti Sauce
    Reeses Pieces Frosting

    What is the vitamix giveaway?

    You are fabulou!

    1. More details on that later this month :)

  250. Vita-mix?! really!!!! ohmygoodness
    Lemon squares for mother’s day! I’m a new mother and that sure sounds good to me.
    this is what I’m making for mother’s day:;postID=5124794012234104202

  251. Beth says:

    Red velvet fudge cake!!!

    I have a challenge for you. You should try to make Vegan Slutty Brownies!!! If you don’t know what a slutty brownie is, it’s a layer of cookie dough, a layer of Oreos, topped off with a brownie layer and then baked :)

    1. Erica says:

      Ohhh that one’s easy! CCK’s deep dish cookie pie + organic vegan Oreos (such as Newman-Os) + vegan black bean brownies i.e. 😀

  252. christina says:

    pancakes ! :) stack ’em up with reese’s pieces frosting.. like a crepe cake turned pancckake?

    lemon squares would be phenomenal as well; my mom loves “frozen chocolate covered key lime pie on a stick” after trying it on vacation once.. she found the little stand selling it, got one for herself & didn’t tell anyone else LOL- then spent the rest of the trip **raving** about it.. she still talks about how crazy good it was, and still gets railed on for not sharing w/ anyone ha.. would love to make her the lemon squares but w/ key lime juice & chocolate ganache or something. & you are going to make someone VERY happy with that giveaway.. so awesome!

  253. Laura M says:

    I vote for lemon squares!

  254. Erin says:

    OMG. Red velvet fudge cake. I’ve been wanting to see a red-velvet recipe on your site for FOREVER! Oh, and I guess something for my mom too 😉 The chocolate puppy chow!

    And… vita-mix?! If I won a vita-mix I would cry of happiness. I’m taking statistics right now so I know there’s basically no chance, but hey, someone will have to win 😉

  255. Anonymous says:

    puppy chow and reeses!!!!

  256. Paige says:

    Yum! As usual all of your recpies sound amazing! Personally my top three would be the sugar cookie bars, red velvet and the Reese frosting but a new pancake flavor never hurts! Already excited for the vitamix giveaway!

  257. Erin says:

    I would love the strawberry cheesecake fruit dip recipe! I teach FACS to middle school and we are in our fruit unit. I am doing fruit kabobs and wanted somethign the students could dip them in too. I love delicious and nutrtitious (and vegan)!

  258. Claire says:

    Ahhh! Delicious! Can’t wait. I say
    the pink princess cake,
    healthy lemon squares,
    red velvet fudge cake.

    But really, I’m fine with just about anything. 😀

  265. Courtney says:

    I can see why you’re having a hard decision – I want to see all of those recipes! 😉 I have to definitely vote for the Red Velvet Fudge Cake, though. I have a weakness for red velvet.

  266. Finn says:

    lemon squares or pancakes! yum!

  267. Kathrynxc says:

    Lemon bars please!!! I haven been able to eat those in FOREVER and am dying for some! You rock Katie :)

  268. Tricia says:

    Okay now there seems to be a ton of comments but hear me out: I would cry tears of joy if you post the puppy chow :)… okay, maybe not literally but I would be oh so happy :)

  269. Kara says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares & Reeses Pieces Frosting puuhlllleeeaasse!!

  270. Molly T. says:

    Definitely the pancake recipe! Those pancakes always make my morning a little better! Second choice is the puppy chow! I used to make that at summer camp all the time and I loved it!

  271. Erin says:

    My vote is for either the Secret Spaghetti Sauce or the Chocolate Puppy Chow

  272. Emily J says:

    Reese’s Pieces frosting! Can’t wait!

  273. Kaylee says:

    A pink princess cake, please! My little sister loves to be “my little elf” and help me cook. She would love this recipe.

  276. Holli says:

    Something that I will be able to mail to my mom! sugar cookie or lemon bars :)

  277. Caitlyn says:

    Hi Katie!

    I love your site! I think it’s great that you’re showing people that being vegan and healthy doesn’t mean you have to “sacrifice” or eat “rabbit food”. Unfortunately, although I have been following your blog religiously for months (and have even gotten some friends hooked!), I’ve never yet commented because, apparently, I’m a lazy bum…but really, there’s a first time for everything, I guess, so here goes:

    I vote for the Chocolate Puppy Chow and then the Reese’s frosting. Lemon squares come up dead last (not a big lemon-in-desserts fan)…but those are just my thoughts :)

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Haha I’m with you, usually… lemon desserts are not my thing. Actually, fruit desserts in general aren’t my favorite. Chocolate always comes first :).

  278. Sarah says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    Pink Princess Cupcakes

  279. Michelle says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake, HANDS DOWN! That ish sounds amazing!

  280. Sam says:

    Spaghetti sauce, pancakes, strawberry cheesecake fruit dip, and red velvet fudge cake!

  281. Leanne says:

    Hmmmmm…. Healthy Lemon Squares <3 <3 <3 <3

  282. Leanne says:

    Oh and my mum just walked past me + my laptop and she’s saying “Oh indeed I’d love some Healthy Lemon Squares” haha! 😀

  283. lisa says:

    i´ld love those lemon squares… :)
    soo excited!! 😀

  284. Sherone says:

    If I have to choose Lemon Squares please, although I feel like a traitor for not choosing something with chocolate! LOL

  285. Sapphire says:

    I’d like to see anything sugar cookie related! My mother-in-law is a diabetic and on a very low (to no) sugar diet, as well as a low salt diet and I need some more healthy sweet recipes for her. I’m trying to get her acclimated to stevia, and get her off artificial sweeteners, but it’s taking some time. She really likes sugar cookies, and I hope to see a few good recipes here, because I adore your recipes! :)

  286. Caitlin Beiermann says:

    I am new to your blog so I have only mad two of your recipes so far, but have loved both of them! I would love to try any of the ones you have listed.

    Here are my top Three

    1) Healthy Lemon Squares
    2) Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    3) Sugar Cookie Bars

  287. Ginkogirl says:

    Lemon Squares, YUM!

  288. Candice says:

    I vote for the “Healthy Lemon Squares”! Will they be gluten-free? I sure hope so! I adore all things lemon.

    1. They have ww pastry flour, but I have a friend who likes to try all my recipes with gf flour so I’ll ask her to try this one before I post it :).

      1. Candice says:

        Thanks Katie! I think it would be awesome to expand to using almond and coconut flour! Then your recipes would be paleo-friendly too and even healthier. :) I bet your awesome recipes would be a smashing hit amongst the paleo community if paleo-ized!

    Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip
    Puppy Chow
    And pancakes!!!

  290. Fit4sure says:

    Ooooh…I was beginning to have psychological issues as I couldn’t pick just one!

    I’m voting for the Secret Spaghetti Sauce.

    (although I may not be able to get the Strawberry Cheesecake Dip off of my mind in the wee hours of the morning!)

  291. Alyssa says:

    Lemon squares and fruit dip, in that order (:

  292. Karla says:

    Ooh, the Reeses Pieces Frosting sounds good! My old, non-healthy version consisted of peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk, so it has to be better than that! Besides that, I vote for Red Velvet Fudge Cake and Pink Princess Cake.

  293. Felicia says:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cane
    Chocolate Puppy Chow
    Hot Chocolate on a Stick
    Healthy Lemon Squares
    Reeses Pieces Frosting

    Are any of these low-cal?

  294. Caralyn says:

    Pancakes!!!!! or reeses frosting.

  295. Julia says:

    Ok first of all I love this site! My votes are for:
    Chocolate Puppy Chow, Healthy Lemon Bars, and Reeses Frosting.
    Thanks so much!

  296. Katherine Rowe says:

    Red Velvet, Pink Princess & Spaghetti Squash please!
    Hi Katie! I’m also a Katie, also a HUGE chocoholic, also a baker and also a health nut who wants to be healthy but still eat tons of dessert! (I was getting bored with my go-to “healthy” desserts; brownies made with egg whites & apple sauce and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies made the same way.) I stumbled across your blog a few months ago and I think it’s just amazing. I have been a regular reader ever since. You have tons of great recipes that I really love! And as a gluten intolerant girl, I LOVE that your recipes are adaptable for special diets.
    Thank you so much for your blog. :)

    1. Aw thank YOU for your sweet comment! :)

  297. Kinsey says:

    I always want something sweet to snack on, but usually it takes a lot of work and/or is unhealthy! (Cake, candy bar, etc).
    This would be perfect. :)

  315. Amanda says:

    Reese’s Pieces Frosting and Red Velvet Fudge Cake sound awesome! But I’m also casting a vote for the Secret Spaghetti Sauce, because I am in DIRE NEED of vegan main dish recipes.

    Just as everyone else has said they ALL sound so great!
    While I wouldn’t always choose this if it was just for me but since MOTHERS day is coming up I have to go with LEMON SQUARES. My Mother LOVES lemon things so I would love to be able to make these for her.
    Great job as always, you are helping so many people in so many different areas. I have shared your site with quite a few friends and your recipes and they are always well received. I hope you are very happy with the work you are doing. We all appreciate it!

    1. Thank you! That really means a lot to me, Alan :)

    a new pancake recipe…
    Hot Chocolate on a Stick

  329. Paolina says:

    Katie, I’ve been a long-time quiet follower. I’m not a vegan, not even a vegetarian, but I love your site! Your chocolate chip cookie dough pancakes with my own homemade chocolate syrup made a very indulgent birthday breakfast. I also love your milkshake recipes that I turn into my morning smoothie! That being said, I vote for Reeses Pieces frosting and a new pancake recipe! Thank you for all your hard work!!

    1. Thank you so much, Paolina. I’m thinking I’ll post the frosting tomorrow :).

  330. Lisa says:

    chocolate puppy chow!!!!!! pllleeeaaassseee!

  331. Jess says:

  332. Emma FtW says:

  333. Julie says:

    Strawberry cheesecake fruit dip and chocolate puppy chow. Please and Thank you!

  334. Alaine says:

    They all sound wonderful, but Chocolate Puppy Chow please! If you can find a way to make puppy chow healthy, I will love you forever!

  335. Jaana says:

    Hi Katie!! I absolutely love your chocolate blog :) as for new recipes… you have to make Red Velvet Fudge Cake!!! red velvet + fudge + cake = heaven!! Good luck with everything!

  336. Sarah says:

    I’d love to see the red velvet fudge cake!! Also the strawberry cheesecake fruit dip and hot chocolate on a stick sound delicious. :)

  337. Charlotte says:

    Healthy lemon squares, Reeses pieces frosting and sugar cookie bars all sound AMAZING! I just want to say what an inspiration your blog is as someone who is trying to transition into veganism. You’re living proof that you don’t have to sacrifice all the yummy stuff to live a healthy lifestyle. :)
    I was wondering if there is any way you could send me the recipe for the single-lady cookie dough pie you mentioned quite a while back, if you still have it. I think it may have been around valentine’s day that you mentioned it.Thank you so much!

    1. Here’s the recipe so far, but it’s not perfected… I’m thinking it tastes a little dry right now, but maybe not? If you try it, let me know what you think!

      •1/4c spelt flour (or maybe another flour like peanut flour?)
      •1/8 plus 1/16 tsp salt
      •1/8 tsp baking soda
      •2 tsp sugar or evaporated cane juise
      •1 stevia pack or 1 tablespoon more sugar
      •1 tablespoon oil (coconut or canola or veg)
      •3 tablespoons milk of choice
      •1/4 tsp vanilla
      •2-3 tsp chocolate chips
      Combine dry. Add wet. Microwave 1 min, 20 seconds (or more or less, depending on your microwave).

      1. Samantha says:

        OK, I am maybe slightly embarrassed to admit this but I had so much fun so thank you. Anyway, I did test this recipe. Three versions:

        Spelt + coconut oil
        Oat flour + coconut oil
        Spelt + applesauce

        All were done true to recipe. I used white sugar and almond milk. I did 1 minute 20 sec.

        All three turned out nicely. My favorite for consistency and flavor would be spelt + coconut oil. When I do this again I will use brown sugar and increase the vanilla (I love vanilla).

        None of my tests came out dry. Two came out very slightly runny in the center but I think that was because I microwaved two at once. And actually I liked it.

        It was a fun way to relax for the evening.

        1. You are awesome!!! Seriously, I think you might be my favorite person, Samantha. Thanks for being so active in the comment section… and for pretty much being the best taste-tester. I mean, three different trials? They should make a cookie dough medal for that ;). (And if they do, I want one too… so I can eat it.)

          1. Samantha says:

            I agree, it would be a total honor to accept a medal like that! LOL.

            Really, it is very fun for me and THANK YOU for what you do and being such a wonderful person.

  338. cassie says:

    puppy chow!!! we love that in this house as a special treat, so a healthy version would be awesome!

  339. Kit-Kat says:

    Everything sounds so exciting!!!! Might I add delicious, too? I don’t care which recipe you post first. You make the best creations, ever! Wish I could be your taste tester 😉

    1. I wish you could too! That’d be so much fun.

  340. Shelley says:

    hahahaha have you had readers think you’re pregnant when you say you have a big announcement? Too funny!

    I vote lemon squares or reeses frosting :)

    1. It’s just so many bloggers seem to be getting pregnant this year!

      1. Shelley says:

        ohhhhhh haha I get it :) I guess I don’t keep up!

        1. I just keep seeing it on twitter… “Big announcement!” Click over, and sure enough, someone else is pregnant! 😉

  341. Sarah Beth says:

    Your blog is a God-send!!! It is so hard these days to enjoy the sweet life and be gluten-free, often grain-free, and when Im being good sugar-free!
    Thank you thank you THANK YOU!

    PS I vote for Lemon Squares :)

  342. Aileen says:

    Ooh i’m so excited about that give away! I love the hint, that episode is hilarious!
    But I’d love to see the Lemon Squares- w/ the heat coming I’d love to see something light, tangy and fruity!

  343. katiek says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares please!!! Those are my favorites!

  344. Aurelie says:

    Oh gosh, you sure pamper us!! They all sound DELICIOUS… mmmm… How is a girl supposed to choose!?!? 😉

    But if you insist, my top picks would be Lemon Squares (sweet and sour AND it’s a half-cookie!), Reeses Pieces Frosting (because PB + CHOCOLATE!!!), and Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip (sounds super-convenient AND tasty!)

    After that, it would be Red Velvet Fudge Cake (I’m a sucker for all things Red Velvet) and Hot Chocolate Sticks! (perfect party food, I think!)

    P.S. This is my first time commenting, although I’ve been subscribing for a while now. You’re an inspiration, cliched as it sounds :’)

    1. Thank you so much. Seriosuly, that means a lot to me.

  345. Hawai‘i Leah says:

    Oh oh oh Healthy Lemon Squares and Reeses Pieces Frosting please! Also the chocolate Puppy Chow. Although I hate that people call it Puppy Chow, Ewww. I always called them Muddy Buddies.

    1. I think both names are awful! And we used to call it Trash Chex, which is even worse. They need a new name :-?.

  348. Renee says:

    Oh my, hot chocolate on a stick? Have I died and gone to heaven? And a healthier puppy chow recipe sounds like it might just allow you to take over the world with it’s chocolatey amazingness.

  390. Nikki says:

    Hi Katie! I’ve been a following CCK faithfully since I discovered you a few years ago when I started reading it to pull myself out of depression. You’ve been my happy mentor- seriously! The post about your smiley face phase made something click in my brain that happiness was going to be a choice for me. I could have emailed you this, but I wanted to testify! I’m giving back today by offering my opinion:
    Red Velvet Fudge Cake, Reese’s Pieces Frosting, Sugar Cookie Bars or the pancake recipe, especially if it’s gluten free. If I had to to choose only one, it would be whichever could be most easily made gluten free.
    P.S.- By now I have lots of questions for you from one vegan runner to another. Would it be best to e-mail?


    1. Email or comment. Whatever works for you! I’m very behind in my emails so it might take awhile to hear back, but I promise I will write back eventually lol!

  391. Anon says:

    Reese’s Pieces frosting! PLEASE!!

  405. Erin says:

    You can’t tease us with these yummy recipes and not post them…. So whatever doesn’t make the May cut will be done in June, right? :)
    Top picks for right now are Secret Spaghetti Sauce and Healthy Lemon Bars.

    1. The problem is that I keep getting more and more ideas to post… so some never get posted. But if I’ve mentioned one and you never see it, you can always ask for the recipe and I can post it in a comment!

  406. CSchulte says:

    Red velvet pancakes, secret spaghetti sauce (I love any dinner-type recipes!!), and healthy lemon bars all sound great!!!
    I love the creative recipes, but sometimes I really appreciate the recipes that are easy to prepare without a lot of equipment (i.e. can just be mixed by hand, without a food processor) because I’m cooking from my dorm room! Thanks Katie, love all the recipes.

  407. Margaret says:

    Recipe choices:

  421. Terez says:

    Lemon squares would be great!

  422. Laurel Daley says:

    Reese’s Pieces Frosting! Omgomgomgomg! Side note- I always called them “Reese’s Peeceys” and only recently figured out that they were “pieces” like “pieces” of candy. D’oh. Oh well, I still call them that. They are my FAVORITE candy! I always loved the Reece’s Piece’s sundae from Friendly’s with the ice cream cone hat. Hmm I might have to make a homemade version of that soon.

  423. April says:

    Princess cake, strawberry cheescake dip and lemon squares please!!!! :)

  441. Wendi says:

    Hi Katie, I have a baking question for you. I LOVE your site and have made numerous recipes of yours. You talk about the magic bullet when you make some of your recipes. I bought it and can not get it to work. I tried numerous recipes using it and it never seems to chop up the dates. The dates seem to just hover over the top and get in a clumpy ball. I bought the bullet because my blender was doing the same thing so thinking that the bullet was different I went and bought it. Is there something I am doing wrong? Please help! Thank you! Your friend biting the bullet, Wendi in wisconsin…

      The bullet is good for single serving recipes. It sounds like you would be better off with a food processor, like a cuisinart. :)

    Lemon squares! Hands down

  443. Natalie says:

    ahha. it’s like picking out my own present for mother’s day!

    I’d say lemon squares…. but maybe not.. I’m a complete sucker for new recipes (mine, yours, theirs)

    so new pancake recipe! your apple pancakes are a dream.

  444. Monica says:

  446. Emilie says:

    I would really like to see the Pink Princess Cake (beacause I love pink and princesses :)) and the Healthy Lemon Squares :)

  447. Kari says:

    Post the healthy lemon bars! Yum!

  448. Cathee says:

    I want them all…but it is a toss up between the
    Red Velvet Fudge Cake… and the
    Healthy Lemon Bars…YUM! 😉

  449. Heather says:

    I vote for the lemon bars, the red velvet, new pancakes… many to decide

  450. Sonya says:

    Lemon squares, red velvet fudge cake, Hot chocolate on a stick, and spaghetti sauce please!!

  451. Shanna says:

    I vote for:

    Red Velvet Fudge Cake
    Secret Spaghetti Sauce
    Healthy Lemon Squares
    a new pancake recipe…

    But they all sound yummy to me!

  452. Andrea says:

    I love sauce recipes so I would love to see your secret spaghetti sauce recipe! My other two votes are for the Red Velvet Fudge Cake if it does not use food coloring, and the pancake recipe! You can NEVER have too many pancakes!!! :)

  453. Crys says:

    I couldn’t choose just one… In order of fave: Lemon Squares, Hot Chocolate on a Stick, and Red Velvet!

  454. Amanda says:

    Red velvet please!!!

  455. Anna says:

    They all sound wonderful, but would love to see Reeses Pieces Frosting and Red Velvet Fudge Cake!

  456. Melanie says:

    Chocolate puppy chow, lemon squares and pancakes!

  457. Victoria says:

    RED VELVET FUDGE CAKE! All the way, 100%!
    My mom LOVES red velvet and I feel kind of bad I haven’t been able to make it for her even with all my time spent around southern ladies who make it. A healthier version would be absolutely awesome!

  458. Amie says:

    I am dying to know what makes the spaghetti sauce special. I love all of your recipes and the other ones sound amazing too. What’s a girl to choose?

  459. Christina Lengyel says:

    Red Velvet fudge cake and reese pieces frosting!

  460. Robyn says:

    OMG I want them all. Except the lemon bars, I’m not so into those 😉

    I’m partial to Pink Princess Cake! Or the sugar cookie bars. Or the red velvet fudge cake…I guess this means I am NOT partial!

  461. Sapphire says:

    I’d like to see the Sugar Cookie recipe, and I hope it’s sugar free! *lol* What a contradiction there! But my mother in law is diabetic, and I’m trying to make more and more desserts for her that are sugar free. And for me, anything will do, but the lemon bars seem to be a nice change of pace, and quite summery :)

    And now, I’m off to make a one minute chocolate cake with the new reese’s frosting!

  462. Mondie says:

    Healthy Lemon Squares!!!

  463. Michelle says:

    Secret Spaghetti Sauce! and then sugar cookie bars

  464. Raechelle says:

    I’m putting my vote in for pancakes; always looking for new variations on that.
    My second vote is for lemon squares-that just sounds really yummy at this moment; of course being only 5 weeks from my figure comp they all sound divine! lol!

  465. Keita says:

  467. Karlie says:

    Although they all sound awesome!

  468. Lisa Broadley says:

    I say Secret Spaghetti Sauce as I’d like to know the secret!! Plus I’m excited to hear about your annoucement!

  469. Cookie222 says:

    I vote for the lemon squares, especially if they are gluten-free. Can I modify the recipe to make healthy key lime squares? I’m having a craving.

    My daughter votes for the Red Velvet cupcakes. That’s her favorite and I’d make it more if it was healthier.

    I have to thank you. You have inspired me to bake more because using your recipes means I’m not making junk and empty calorie-ladened sweets.

    1. I bet you could! I might have to try it too :).

  470. Ashley says:

    Fruit dip and puppy chow!!!

  487. KT loves FOOD says:

    First of all, from one Katie Foodie to the other, I’m obsessed with your blog. You have an amazing variety of recipes of food to satisfy all cravings. A healthy cook and baker myself, I have transformed my family’s opinion of “healthy” desserts (the cookie pie in particular). I would love to see the healthy lemon squares, sugar cookie bars, and strawberry cheesecake dip.

    Would you consider putting together a berry creme tart or springy savory recipe too?

    love love,

    1. I can put it on my to-do list. I have no tarts on here and really should try to make a recipe!

  488. beth says:

    puppy chow would be fabulous! then hot chocate on a stick. thanks!

  489. Stephanie H. says:

    Red Velvet fudge cake!!! Oh, and sugar cookie bars! (Just so you know, I would die….I mean, really DIE for a vitamix!) Drool! : )

  490. Shannon says:

    Hot. Mess. They all sound so yummy! As a southerner at heart imma have to vote for the red velvet fudge cake. Let the salivating begin!

  491. Penny says:

    pancakes AND lemon squares! :)

  492. Heather says:

    I’m so excited for this vitamix giveaway…..hope I win, I never get picked for anything :( By the way Katie your amazing

  493. Sarah says:

    I love all the “dough” dips and i would really love to see the strawberry cheesecake dip

  494. Okay, in order of preference (since I can’t just pick ONE!):
    Red Velvet fudge cake (and this one’s ahead by a lot)
    Reeces Pieces frosting (to put on the Red Velvet cake?)
    Hot chocolate on a stick
    Healthy Lemon Squares

    That last one would be my mom’s favorite, so I feel like it’s appropriate to mothers’ day. Though I’m sure that she’d like any of these!

    Thanks for all the wonderful you put into the world!
