Chocolate-Covered Katie–BRAND NEW Site Design!

Can you tell I am seriously excited?????????!!!!!!!!! Feel free to click around and check out the new recipe pages. The blog has been growing so rapidly over the past year that it’s been almost impossible to keep up, and while too much traffic is usually a good thing, it’s not so great when pages begin […]

Going Behind the Scenes – With A Food Blogger

This post was so much fun to write! I wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most famous photos you might recognize from my website before they’d been cropped for the blog. Hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it! Peanut Butter Buckeye Brownies I’m embarrassed […]

My Running Story: Part Two

In the year since I quit running, I’ve received a high number of emails and blog comments from readers wanting to know if I’ll ever go back to it in the future. While I’d initially been one of those people no one believes because they insist they really do love running, I wasn’t sure if […]

Chocolate Covered Katie Anorexic?

Addressing the elephant in the room. It’s not something I ever wanted to address; the subject of eating disorders has nothing to do with my website nor what I stand for, which is why I’ve let the rumors go unchallenged for so long. But readers have recently been leaving an even higher number of weight-related […]

Chocolate-Covered Katie: What you don’t see on the blog

About a year ago, I published Part 1 of the blooper series: Food Photography Gone Wrong & How To Photobomb Like Batman. Seeing as there have been many more food photography bloopers since that post, it is high time to publish Chocolate-Covered Katie Food Photography Bloopers Part 2, with all the spills, explosions, and unsightly messes […]

An update on what’s happening in my life…

Readers have been asking about my references to leaving Texas, and since I promised to make the blog more personal anyway, it’d probably be good to elaborate. If you’re only interested in recipes, feel free to skip this post; the recipes will continue soon. I’ve always been a passionate person. This can either be a […]

Why I Gave Up Running

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while… Although it’s completely unrelated to healthy desserts or recipes, I wanted to publish in case it can help someone out there who might feel like I did a few months ago. If you were to stumble upon my blog without knowing anything else about me, […]

My Interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Sorry for the lack of new posts lately… It has been a CRAZY weekend! As I mentioned a few days ago on the blog, my world was turned completely upside-down last week when I received an email from a writer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, wanting to know if I was interested in being a […]

Chocolate-Covered Katie: My Food Photography

Above is my No-Sugar Chocolate Fudge. Delving into the blog’s stats page to find the most-viewed posts for my 2012 recap, I was surprised to see, among the popular posts, a page called “sugar-free chocolate fudge.” I didn’t even remember writing such a post! So I clicked on over… and was embarrassed when the following photo stared […]

My Big Decision

Time to talk about the F word. Yesterday’s f word was frivolous: Healthy Frappucinos. But today, it’s time to get more serious; today’s f word is “future.” Specifically, my future and the future of my chocolate-covered blog. The future of CCK’s Blog… This summer, I had to make a big decision regarding the blog I’ve […]

Do you eat too much?

Or maybe you don’t eat at the “right” times? Just like the idea that different people don’t need to like the same food, different people also don’t need to eat the same amount of food. Looking to others as a way of determining how much to eat is a very, very dangerous idea. No two people […]

Chase away the Blues

If you get one thing out of today’s post, let it be this: Eat more chocolate. Raw Chocolate Cream Pie People sometimes say to me, “Katie, you are like the happiest person I’ve ever met.” And it’s true: I am a happy person, 9 times out of 10. But I don’t always live up to my […]

Getting Personal on the Blog

Going back to last week… The recent post led to one of my favorite-ever blog discussions. I wanted to highlight one comment, in particular, because it sparked my motivation to write today’s post. The comment: . Katie, one of the reasons I love your blog and read it regularly (besides the healthy recipes, of course!) […]

A Post About Boobs… And Chocolate!

I give, to you, the 32C cups. The 3 stands for “3 steps” and the 2C stands for “chocolate and coconut.” What’d you think I meant? 😉 Yes, the title might be a stretch, but when I thought of cups and then remembered it was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I had to tie the […]

CCK, the College Years

It’s finally time to continue with the “CCK Goes to College” story. As I said in Chocolate-Covered Katie’s College Story: Part One, it was definitely a good choice to cut my losses and transfer schools; a bigger university with more class options was a much better fit for me.  Right away, I made a lot of new […]
