Healthy Shamrock Shakes!

What’s your favorite milkshake flavor? Mine’s always been mint chocolate chip… although the last time I drank a real milkshake, it was chocolate. To be honest, the vibrant green color enthralls me more than anything else. (Have you seen the Shamrock Shakes from McDonalds or the mint chocolate chip milkshakes from Baskin Robbins?) It goes […]

Peanut Butter Frosting

Smooth or Crunchy? More of y’all like crunchy peanut butter than smooth, according to a poll on Twitter. I always figured it’d be the other way around! Banana Bread for One I created the above frosting for a friend, as a challenge. This friend has a serious frosting addiction. In fact, freshman year of college, she […]

Victoria’s not-so-naughty Secret

More Boobies!! Remember our fun Boobies Discussion? Leave it to Victoria’s Secret to glamorize bras. No longer must women choose between black and white. They can buy blue. Or red. Or pink polka dot. If you happen to be filthy rich, you can even purchase their Fantasy Bra. It’s only 15 million dollars. What Victoria’s […]

Easy Soy-Free Pudding

Hello Chocolate Pudding Pies! Speaking of chocolate pudding… Last week I fixed the voluminous oatmeal post, so this week, I tackled another post in dire need of fixing: the soy-free pudding tutorial post. It was awfully confusing and convoluted. I’m re-posting the updated post so you don’t have to bother clicking on links to find […]

Soy-Free Love Potion

Remember middle school, when “going out” with someone meant his dad would drive him to meet you—and your mom—at the movies? Today I was thinking back to middle school, the time when girls discover that whole “boys have cooties” thing is a lie. My mind wandered through first crushes to first kisses to first dates. […]

Raw Chocolate Fudge Cake

What do you like to do on Snow Days? Growing up in the Philadelphia area, we had a lot of snow days. Once, school was closed for 17 days straight! My favorite things to do on snow days: make snow cones, make snow forts, and build snow families. Oh, and then come in for hot […]

High Protein Mushroom Stroganoff

High-protein mushroom stroganoff… It’s gluten-free as well, and there’s a soy-free option. One thing of which the dish isn’t free, however, is taste! You’d think it was top-secret recipe, for how long I’ve waited to post it. This mushroom stroganoff is dedicated to my friend, Sunne. She might never see it, though, since she probably […]

Hamburger Helper: Vegan Style!

5 Minutes to Lunch With the help of a (vegan) hamburger. And a butternut-squash trick. Katie, how can it be “5 minutes” if one of the ingredients is butternut squash? Those things take ages to cook! True, but here’s what I like to do: Buy the BIGGEST butternut squash you can find. Roast the whole […]

Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge

Sugar-Free. When I hear those words, I think of cloyingly-sweet, sucralose-laden desserts or beverages. Chemical sugars and I do not get along. As a little kid, I put Sweet-n-Low in my iced tea because my mom said it dissolved better than sugar. But after a few months of awful tummy aches, we determined Sweet-n-Low didn’t […]

“Mexican Hat Dance” Tortilla Soup

¡Hola chispas de chocolate! Do you like Mexican Food? As a little girl, I hated it! Even after we moved to Texas, the home of Tex-Mex cuisine, I still loathed tacos, fajitas, and guacamole. Don’t get me started on jalapeños. And I don’t think I’d eaten an enchilada in my entire life! However, tastes change, and […]

Chocolate-Raspberry Truffle Oatmeal

The Five Foods you Meet in Heaven Can anyone guess mine? I’ll give you a hint. One starts with a Ch and ends in –ocolate. But another one is oatmeal. I even have a separate recipe tab: Oatmeal Recipes Under that tab are recipes for the likes of Snickerdoodle Oatmeal, Cookie Dough Oatmeal, and even […]

Make your own Coconut Butter

Homemade Coconut Butter! The post I should’ve written a long time ago! Yesterday afternoon, I made a Single-Lady Cupcake. Not just any single lady cupcake. This one is covered with homemade coconut butter (and cacao nibs). Every time I post a recipe using coconut butter, bunches of coconuts people leave comments lamenting the lack of […]

Cauliflower Chicken Nuggets?

Howdy, chocolate truffles! Yesterday, I tried to make healthy chocolate brownies. Emphasis on the word tried. If you follow CCK on Twitter, you might’ve seen my message about the terrible results. Luckily, dinner made up for it: I am in love with this: Bread-Free Vegan Stuffing. I make it at least twice a month, and I’ve even started […]

“Good Girl” Vegan Fudge

The healthiest fudge ever? Dairy-free, soy-free, and even sugar-free! Every good boy does fine Every good girl eats Fudge. (Never before have piano lessons looked so appealing.) Good Girls go Bad… Above is the result of freezing Coconut Banana Butter. It hardens and turns into fudge, proving wrong my previously-held assumption that warmed, spreadable coconut banana […]

A Blueberry Muffin in a Bowl

Starbucks is Mean. They are always tempting me with those big, fat blueberry muffins, but the muffins aren’t vegan. Eh, store-bought pastries often look better than they taste, anyway. Luckily I have my own muffin-esque recipe that is insanely-delicious, not to mention healthier than the Starbucks pastries: It’s everything you’d want from a warm blueberry […]
