Raw Mounds Bars

Who doesn’t love Mounds Bars??? I could’ve simply included these raw mounds bars as a variation in the Raw Macaroon post. But they’re just way too good to be a side note. Chocolate always deserves its own post, don’t you think? Besides, the Mounds Bar was one of my favorite candy bars as a kid.  (I also […]

Raw Macaroons

Completely raw macaroons that are entirely vegan and contain no added sugars… (Form them into balls, bars, or cookie-cutter shapes, like the Peanut Butter Babies.) Macaroon Babies 160 grams dates (1 and 1/3 c) (I use Sunmaid because they’re softer) 1/4 cup coconut butter 1/4 cup tbsp shredded coconut (I used unsweetened) Note: A few readers/bloggers have […]

Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness

Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness I always want to help others but often get bogged down in the thought that “I’m just one small person; how much help can I really be?” And there are so many worthy causes out there that it’s easy to become discouraged and give up. People often get so overwhelmed at the […]

Hugs, not Drugs

Below, fellow crazies: Which pic is your favorite? One more photo: This doesn’t really have to do with hugging carbs, but blog-reader Gaby sent me such a fun picture that I just *have* to share her creativity with everyone! Above, Gaby made Monster Fudge Babies!

Spooky Babies

I ended up posting twice yesterday. If you missed the Peanut Butter Fudge Baby post, click here . Above, ready to be rolled into Peanut Butter Babies Moving on to Today’s post: I once read that the most elite runners think of absolutely nothing but their form as they run. Well, I guess that counts […]

Halloween Hotties

Now that we’ve established the fact that I am not pregnant, I’m free to play the field.  Right? Hotties first: Please don’t close your hand!! Gives new meaning to the words “smoldering eyes” Grrr… One tough, arame-eatin’ seagull. Now that’s hot. (And no, Paris Hilton, I will not be paying you any royalties for using […]


No, I’m not pregnant. But someone is! I modeled my friend’s baby-shower stork cake after a button from Party City. Below, with the button: And a close-up of the 100%-edible decoration, made from fondant. For the time being, I’d much rather make some of these babies: (Above, original hot cocoa babies and chocolate-coconut fudge babies. […]

down on the PUMPKIN farm

Browsing through my recipes, one can see that I love pumpkin! From Pumpkin Pie Mousse to Pumpkin Pie Stir Fries, it’s safe to say this girl harbors a healthy appreciation for all things winter squash (and I know I’m not the only one!!). Oh yes, my blog is definitely chock-full of Pumpkin Recipes. So I […]

Would you like some Hay with your Chocolate?

Let’s begin the post with some Choco-licious Chocolate Pudding. Because anything is good if it starts with chocolate, right? But we’ll come back to the pudding later. First, Carb Month News: If you haven’t joined the silliness and hugged a carb yet, but you still want to, please post your photo by this Sunday to […]

Mommy, how are Babies made?

The question that makes mothers everywhere cringe.                       Warning: the above is shockingly graphic for a childrens’ book. But it makes a hilarious addition to any college party. (The seniors read this book to us when I was a freshman in college. I really don’t know how […]

Please don’t Hate me!!

After potatoes and spaghetti, bananas might just be the most misunderstood food in America. The mainstream media (i.e. magazines, fitness tv shows, and diet books) tells us to shun bananas because they are: A. High in calories B. Starchy C. High in carbs Once again, I feel compelled to argue against the media. On a recent post, […]

Baby got Back

This is my car with its top off: Mom, CCK’s posting more naughty pictures! And this is my car from the side: But here is my car from the back: You know what, Stan, if you want me to wear 37 pieces of flair, like your pretty boy over there, Brian, why don’t you just […]


Every time I hear the word “brilliant” I think of the Guinness commercial from a few years ago.    What is so brilliant? Oh, just wait for it.  It’s too cute… ??? ??? ??? Ready?   Cookie Cutter-ed cookies, Fudge Baby style! Totally fudgey.  Totally delicious.  Totally ADORABLE! Christmas can’t come soon enough! For the Fudge […]

The Stress Fracture Sidestep: A Runner’s Dance

Close Call. A few weeks ago, I noticed that my right ankle was purple and swollen. It didn’t hurt, but swelling is never a good sign, right? And purple foods may be fun, but purple feet are another story entirely. “Please go away,” I silently begged the violet puffiness. Oddly enough, it didn’t listen. (Shocking, I know.) Since […]
