German-Chocolate Fudge Bites

I taste like a fudge brownie. No one will ever guess that such fudgey chocolate balls could possibly be 100% free of sugar, butter, and flour. Shhhh… no need to tell anyone they’re healthy. Healthy? Who, me? German Chocolate Fudge Bites (Makes 10-14 balls) Inspired by Hot Fudge Larabars 3/4 cup pitted dates (I like […]

My Television Debut

Woke up really early Friday. I couldn’t sleep; I was too eager for the television feature. (If I’ve been talking about it way too much, please forgive me! I’m just so excited!) And so I went for a run in the dark (in shorts, because it was an insanely-warm 63 degrees. Last year at this […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Mousse

What if I told you this creamy chocolate mousse is healthy: This velvety chocolate mousse is so rich and so thick that anyone who tries it will swear it must be full of heavy cream and calories. But it’s not. See those two chocolate-filled glasses? I ate them both. Joey doesn’t share food. Katie doesn’t share chocolate. […]

Nutella Cookies?

Can I interest you in a Nutella cookie? No? No takers? I can’t imagine why… Are you sure??? All joking aside, I’d hoped to give you a Nutella cookie recipe today. After all, it’s World Nutella Day! But as you can see, this cookie recipe = a major fail. Major. If anyone was under the […]

Healthy Comfort Food?

Where’s the chocolate? No recipe today… right now I’m on television! Well sorta. They’re filming today, but luckily the feature isn’t live. I’ll definitely post an update when I find out the air date. Thanks for all the advice and well-wishes on Wednesday. Chocolate thunderstorm… I promise all sorts of delicious new chocolate recipes starting […]

Peanut Butter Breakfast Pudding

I’m going to be on television!! The Dallas ABC affiliate news team is filming a story on me, for the 5 o’clock news! It’s pretty much the coolest thing to happen to me since… ever?! For the feature, I’m thinking of either making the Deep Dish Cookie Pie or the Black Bean Brownies. Right now I’m […]

Healthy Desserts for Your Super Bowl Party

Guy Stereotypes: Guys like football. Guys like meat. So what if you want to throw a Super Bowl party without meat? Simple! You distract the guys with chocolate. And beer. Guys like beer! (Stereotypes aside, many girls like football too… and girls love chocolate. Bring chocolate to your Super Bowl party, and everyone will be happy!) […]

Melty Pizza Hummus

It’s hummus. But it tastes like pizza. This initially started out as regular hummus. I’d never made my own hummus before, so I trusted a recipe from Vegnews. It was easy enough to make, but the finished product tasted quite bland. In an effort to jazz up the flavor, I turned to Hunts (as I often […]

Whipped Cream Cereal

Sleep? What’s that? Please forgive me if this post makes no sense. I went out dancing with a few friends last night, and we didn’t get home until after two in the morning. But, of course, my body decides it’s a great idea to wake up at 6. So here I am, full of energy… […]

Want to take a Chocolate Quiz?

Don’t worry; it’s not graded! The above is a compilation of all the chocolate various relatives and friends sent me for Christmas. They know me so well . I haven’t tried the face mask yet, but the strawberry-chocolate tea is really fun. (Apparently, it comes in a red velvet flavor, too.) And the Endangered Species […]

Healthy Hot Chocolate

Healthy hot Chocolate. Chocolate is the answer to every problem. No seriously, it is. —-Boyfriend broke up with you? Chocolate! —-No time to make dinner? Chocolate! —-Spilled red wine all over your tablecloth? Baking soda! Baking soda??? Okay, maybe chocolate is the answer to almost every problem. (Please don’t try putting chocolate on your red […]

Happy, Healthy, and… Hot??

How to stay warm in the winter: Option One: Hats and scarves! I must have about a billion scarves (and lots of winter hats as well). To me, scarves are the only fun part of cold weather. Otherwise I’d be happy if it were 75 degrees all year long. And they double as photography props, […]

Healthy Peanut Butter Recipes

Healthy Peanut Butter Recipes!                           Happy Peanut Butter Day! If I’d known it was National Peanut Butter Day earlier than last night, I would’ve made you an awesome new recipe. Instead, I’ll highlight some of my previously-posted healthy peanut butter recipes… and I’ll […]

Copycat Nature Valley Granola Bars

Imagine yourself eating your favorite granola… Now imagine eating your favorite granola… in the form of a granola bar! Nature Valley Granola Bars… Do you know the ones I’m talking about? Those crunchy bars in the green wrappers? My friend Sarah calls them “horse food” because they’re made up of oats and sugar—things that horses […]

(Sugar-Free!) powdered sugar

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Is it snowing where you are? As usual, Dallas weather doesn’t know what it wants to do. So it vacillates from 25 to 75 and back again. Shorts one day, fleece pants the next. Always on our toes. No snow here yet, but I do have […]
