Healthy Halloween Recipes

Dear litttle chocolate chips, . Halloween is a scary time. And when I say scary, I’m not talking ghosts and goblins. With an overabundance of sugary sweets, Dracula isn’t the only fearsome foe for those trying to stick to a healthy diet. Below, some healthy Halloween recipes. So you can leave the scaring to the creepy […]

One time, I stole red underwear.

My mother wouldn’t buy them for me.  She said they were Satan’s panties. Quick: Who knows the source of this quote? . I’m so glad you liked yesterday’s Single Serving  Cupcake recipe. Today, I might have to make a pumpkin cupcake. Pumpkins are still on my mind, and that probably won’t change til at least […]

Listen to your Body

Lately all I’ve wanted are roasted veggies, with nary a salad craving in sight. I find it fascinating that my body automatically adjusts to the seasons. (Wow, I’m such a nerd.) Since it’s important to listen to your body, I’ve been roasting everything on which I can get my chocolate-covered hands: brussels sprouts, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, […]

Did you know I have a Twin?

Did any of you ever see the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movie, It Takes Two? For the most part, I could not stand MK and Ashley Olsen movies. I mean, hello! All the plots were exactly the same: girls go to foreign country, girls meet cute boys with hot accents, girls save foreign country […]

Pumpkin Doughnut Holes: Vegan-Style

Hello vegan chocolate doughnuts! Normally, when I think about doughnuts, I think about Boston Cream Pie. Boston Cream Pie was one of my sister’s and my favorite doughnut flavors when we were little. I even turned it into oatmeal one day: Boston Cream Pie Oatmeal But today’s little creations are more along the lines of […]

Return of the Vegan Cupcakes

Once upon a time, I decorated cupcakes. Such as the above vegan, personalized, 100%-edible Shopaholic Cupcake. But sadly, life was just so busy this past year that my cupcake-decorating hobby fell by the wayside. Time for a resurrection! I was invited to a Halloween party, and I will not miss this opportunity to make more […]

Fudge Babies for $100

[Insert Jeopardy theme song here] Remember the Last Chance Bake Sale? I offered fudge babies to help raise money for charity. Well, I’m thrilled to say that the batch of fudge babies brought in $100! The pressure was certainly on to create a batch of extra-special babies for the winning bidder. She requested two kinds of babies […]

This New Product is a Hit

Have you ever been to a baseball game? What comes to mind when you think of baseball food? Hot dogs, nachos, cheese fries?  Not exactly vegan-friendly. For some reason, I always associate chili with baseball. So, in honor of my Texas Rangers, I incorporated chili into yesterday’s lunch. Normally, I don’t watch tv while I […]

Vegan Piña Colada Pie

. Can I interest you in a slice? Thumbing through Living in the Raw Desserts, by Rose Lee Calabro, I encountered a dilemma: how would I possibly choose what to make first?? Blueberry cheesecake, German Chocolate Cake, Fudge Brownies Supreme… Oh how I’d love to have 5 million sous-chefs so I could try all of […]

Vegan at a Wedding

If you have a special diet, does this sound familiar? You receive an invitation to a wedding, and the RSVP portion asks you to check off one of two things: chicken or fish. Well, obviously vegetarians do not want to be served chicken or fish. And people with allergies or special dietary needs also can’t […]

Do you ever crave non-vegan foods?

People ask me all the time: Are you ever tempted to eat non-vegan food? Usually, the answer is “no.” Well, if you read my vegan Greek yogurt post, you know that’s not completely true. But in the case of the not-so-vegan Greek yogurt, it wasn’t a craving, it was curiosity. So I stand by the […]

Your turn to Talk

Happy Saturday, Chocolate chippies! . I’m so glad y’all liked the idea of the Almond Butter-Pom Sandwich yesterday. Speaking of fun ideas, I’m having a bit of a problem: There are so many recipes I want to share that when I go to my computer to write a post, I’m overwhelmed. I don’t know which […]

A Free Trip to California

And I can’t even go! About a month ago, I received a really cool email from the Pom Wonderful people, inviting me to visit their factory in California, all expenses paid. In my mind, my bags were packed and I was already there… Until I remembered school. Darn school. My mom kept saying, “Katie, talk […]

I’m a Lazy Butt today

It took all my strength to not run today, as the weather was gorgeous, once again. But, like I’ve mentioned before, part of my exercise philosophy includes not running every day. And it had been a while since I last took a rest day. So back to beddie byes it was for me. Well, not […]
