Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like: Flowers Diamonds Chocolate! Another recipe I’ve been holding onto for a long time. I mentioned it last Valentine’s Day, but then there wasn’t enough time to post it before the holiday. And somehow it didn’t seem right to post the recipe after that… Happy Fourth of July! Have some […]

Secretly Healthy Red Velvet Ice Cream

Ice cream cones in February. That’s what happens when you live in Texas and sometimes it’s 80 degrees. Then the next day it’s 20. Texas is weird. Above, red velvet ice cream with Healthy Chocolate Syrup. A rich and decadent treat (perfect for a heart-healthy Valentine’s Day dessert!) you can feel good about serving your kids, […]

Sex in a Pan

No, I didn’t come up with the name. The popular dessert has been around since at least the 1970s, and it goes by many titles: Sex in a Pan, Six Layer Dessert, Chocolate Yummy, Better than Sex Dessert, Better than Robert Redford… It makes for a great conversation piece or icebreaker at a party. That […]

Healthy Caramel Popcorn

No corn syrup here! This is a healthy caramel popcorn recipe without corn syrup. It’s salty, sweet, and just plain good! As the original slogan for Cracker Jacks says: The more you eat, the more you want. You can even add roasted peanuts for a healthier version of Cracker Jacks that tastes pretty authentic. (Yes, I bought […]

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! Coming up tomorrow, I still have one more new recipe to post (either a brownie recipe or caramel popcorn) before the Super Bowl. In the meantime, I’ve burrowed into […]

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cupcakes

Chances are… Chances are, you took one look at the title of this post and you… RAN THE OTHER WAY. I know these cupcakes sound crazy, but they are also crazy good. The unexpected secret ingredient keeps them soft, light, and super fudgey, without any added oil. They taste almost like a brownie in the […]

World’s Healthiest Tater Tots!

This recipe is unbelievable. I’m serious. It’s one of those recipes where you read the ingredients, roll your eyes, and say, “There is absolutely no way this recipe will turn out.” Then you try it anyway, because curiosity gets the better of you. Such was the case when I came across a recipe for no-potato […]

Homemade Peanut Butter Oreos

Have you ever tried Oreos with peanut butter? The first time I tried them was after watching Lindsay Lohan’s character spread peanut butter on Oreos in the movie, The Parent Trap. (This was back when Lindsay Lohan was an adorable eleven-year-old girl!) After the movie ended and we came home from the theater, the first […]

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Latte

Liquid Cookie Dough. Imagine this: It’s a cold winter’s morning, and you hurry into the local coffee shop for a steaming-hot latte to counter the chill. The barista behind the counter asks, “Would you like a plain latte? Or would you prefer a rich and creamy ‘dessert’ latte that tastes like a warm chocolate-chip cookie, […]

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 […]
