Single Serving Mocha Chocolate Cake

The rich chocolate mug cake displayed before your very eyes can be made in under 5 minutes. And it serves just one person. Unless you’re crazy and decide to share… You’re not crazy, are you? Yeah, me neither. 😉 When I heard today was National Coffee Break Day, my first thought was to write a post highlighting […]

Totally Addictive Cornbread

This healthy cornbread is completely flourless! Southern Comfort Food If you were to peek inside the kitchen pantry of my childhood, I guarantee you’d find at least one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix. Although we rarely ate packaged foods (my mom preferred to cook from scratch), the Jiffy mix was an exception. Now that I’m […]

I’m sorry…

Did you see my crazy blog? On Friday and Saturday, my website looked awful. Little by little, a bug ate up all my posts, pictures, and even my header, replacing them with random images. (A tire? A pine cone?!) I try not to bore you with talk of technical difficulties on my blog. After all, […]

Chocolate Frosting Shots!

EDIT: If you received an email from Pinterest saying I didn’t want recipes pinned, this is NOT true! I’m so sorry for this and have no idea why they would send out such a message! As is obvious from the fact I have a Chocolate Covered Pinterest Board, I love and appreciate when people pin […]

Homemade Chocolate Bars

Homemade Chocolate Bars Three ingredients. Five minutes. These homemade chocolate bars pretty much make themselves. It’s especially fun to customize the flavor, and they taste like eating the coating right off of a chocolate Dove bar. Updated Recipes: I’m trying to make the recipe pages easier to navigate… A few readers have said it’s confusing—with […]

Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies

Haven’t you always wanted to eat cookies for breakfast?? These sugar free cookies are filled with wholesome ingredients like bananas, oats, and raisins. See? Totally acceptable for breakfast. Or lunch. Mmm sure, why not? Normally, my goal is to make my healthy dessert recipes not taste healthy. However, these cookies are an exception to that […]

New Cappuccino Larabars (giveaway)

Oh my chocolate stars. Yesterday was my blog’s busiest day ever. I guess everyone really liked the Homemade Nutella! A large portion of the visits are apparently coming from facebook and twitter, which must mean people are sharing my page with friends—I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone who’s ever shared my page! Without your amazing […]

Healthy Nutella

Healthy Nutella: My new obsession. Soon to be your new obsession. Once you try this healthy Nutella chocolate spread, you’ll never want to put your spoon down. Never ever. Unless, of course, you don’t like Nutella… Is that even possible? Is there a person in this world who can resist that velvety chocolate butter? (If it’s […]

The Top 10 Chocolate-Covered Recipes

Most Viewed of 2011 I hadn’t planned to write a “top ten” post, since I link back to these recipes anyway. But quite a few readers have requested it. So here are the top ten posts on my blog, based on page views and the number of comments left by people who’ve tried the recipe […]

Sweet Potato Chili

This sweet potato chili is so good! It’s so good I’m breaking my blog’s “desserts only” rule to post the recipe. The sweet potato chili, along with the Secret Peanut Butter Cookies, is one of the first recipes I ever made without following instructions in a cookbook; I made up the recipe as a new vegan living in China. And […]

My blog is about to change…

Or is it? I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions—not serious ones, anyway. I’m too impulsive. If there’s something in my life I don’t like, why wait until January to fix it? However, there are a few changes I’ve thought about making to my blog. If you get a chance: I’d really appreciate your feedback. Would […]

Eggless Cookie Dough Truffles

No butter. No eggs. No flour. No shoes, no shirt, no service. And yet… These secretly-healthier cookie dough truffles are scarfed down by everyone who’s ever tried them. Even without butter, eggs, and flour, they taste just as sinfully delicious as traditional cookie dough truffles. Don’t worry if you’re bored of all my Recipes with […]

Funfetti Cupcake for One

Happy 2012! Did you stay up ‘til midnight this year? I had a really low-key Sunday to make up for a crazy New Year’s Eve the night before. Since our party wasn’t starting until ten, Emily and I offered to babysit the two sweetest children in the universe so their parents could go out for […]

Breakfast Ideas for New Year’s Day

Yawn! This year, one of my good friends is throwing a New Year’s Eve party that doesn’t even start until 10:30. So I doubt any of us will get to bed until at least 3… and most people will probably sleep right through breakfast the next day. No matter how late you’re up partying, here are five […]
