Copycat Amy’s Mexican Tamale Pies

They are almost too cute to eat. Almost, but not quite. And when you see how easy these little pies are to prepare, you might give up buying frozen meals for good. They take just THREE simple steps, the first of which is to simply throw a bunch of cans into a pot and wait. […]

Cake Batter Dip

The sprinkles made me do it. Sprinkles can be very convincing. Yesterday, one of my friends threw an impromptu party, and we were all supposed to bring a dish to share. Since a lot of people came straight from work, there ended up being an overwhelming number of packaged hummus containers, spinach dips, and pre-cut veggie trays. […]

Chocolate Cake… with a crazy ingredient!

This cauliflower chocolate cake might be the most “out there” recipe I’ve ever posted. Originally, I was hoping to save the recipe for The Chocolate-Covered Katie Cookbook. But I can’t keep it to myself. This chocolate cake is too good to not share! And no, the secret ingredient is not beans. My boyfriend has proclaimed […]

Spaghetti Squash Lo Mein: Nutritional Info

Serving Size: The recipe yields about 5 main-dish servings, and it’s very low in calories. I’d definitely suggest having something with it, since 70 calories is probably not enough for a meal for even the strictest dieter! (I double-checked, because that seemed crazy low. But it is actually correct.) Bulk-up ideas include: adding edamame or […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… without sugar!

Happy Birthday! To celebrate a birthday, one often eats pie. But what do you eat when the birthday is for the pie, itself? While it may seem odd to commemorate such an occasion at all, my deep-dish cookie pie—which came into existence exactly one year ago—is no ordinary pie. After all, this pie was featured […]

Deep-Dish Cookie Pie: Calories and Nutrition Info

This makes either a deep, 10-in springform pie or two 8-in round cookie cakes. If you make the round cakes and cut each into 8 slices, the slices will have the following nutritional profile. Note, the nutrition info DOES include the chocolate chips: Calories: 200 Fat: 7.5 g Carbs: 35 g Fiber: 4.5 g Protein: […]

Gooey Chocolate-Chip Bars (for a good cause!)

Note to self: Don’t ask for suggestions. You’ll get way too many good ones, and thus it will be even harder to make a decision. Finally, at about 6 o’clock Friday night, I had to choose something… After a lot of wavering, I finally made my Chocolate Chip Blondies with beans. When I bring those […]
