Welcome to the new Chocolate-Covered Katie!

What do you think of the new website? (If you’re reading this post through email, click here to see the new site.) Going into the process, I knew I wanted something bright and cheery – but also whimsical yet modern, and youthful yet grown-up. (Contradictions galore.) It’s taken many months of hard work to get […]

30 Healthy Valentine’s Day Desserts

Valentine’s Day: My plans will probably sound pretty boring this year. We’re staying home, and S is in charge of dinner (scary thought). I’m supposed to make dessert but haven’t yet figured out what to make. It won’t be chocolate mousse or chocolate mousse pie, as I still can’t convince S to try tofu! Since I run a chocolate-covered […]

Seventeen Healthy Super Bowl Recipes

Did you know that on Super Bowl Sunday, Americans consume more food than on any other day of the year except Thanksgiving? It even beats out Christmas!

What I ate for Christmas

This is Gangnam style. This is Batman style. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope yours was as joyful and fun-filled as Batman’s. He spent the season barking his head off at the UPS man, basking in the extra attention lavished upon him, and chasing a toy train around and around and around our Christmas tree until he […]

What I ate for Thanksgiving Dinner

My Thanksgiving dinner plate: Macaroni and cheese is better than turkey any day. Chandler Bing would agree :). I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family and a few friends, and the macaroni (this recipe) was actually the only thing on my plate made by me. Everything else: my mom’s broccoli salad (lightly steamed, then tossed with […]

I adopted a girl!

Just a quick $30 donation can help provide lifelong care for animals in desperate need of […]

Please stop whatever you’re doing and read this post.

Sorry for the gimmick-y title. However, there is nothing gimmicky about what’s going on in the northeastern United States and parts of the Caribbean right now. Thousands of people have lost everything—their homes, their livelihoods, members of their family… Today’s post is a reminder that there are more important things in life than chocolate. This […]

What I did for Halloween

I sometimes forget I’m no longer in college. Gone are the days my body will happily accept 2 hours of sleep. But you can always tell how good (or bad) a party is by how late everyone stays. I’ve been at parties that start at 7, where nobody is left by 10 PM. However, last […]
