Never Ending Oatmeal Bowl

When I first tried chia seeds (in the form of chia pudding), I wasn’t a fan. I wanted to like them: they’re so good for you. But eating something just because it’s good for you? Ridiculous! You don’t have to suffer for health. If you aren’t big on a certain food, there are plenty of […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

It is so hot here! Can someone please invent the Ice Cream Diet? Where you eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? A few of you told me there already is an ice cream diet. Why am I surprised? After all, there’s a grapefruit diet, a cabbage soup diet, even a No White Foods […]

Buttery Berry Crumble Bars

Yummy. Sweet. Crumbly and Buttery. By the way, did you know that a synonym for buttery is butyraceous? I learned quite a few new words today, thanks to pinguedinous, pomadig, sebaceous, cereous, lardacious… Pretty sure I’ll never need to use that last one! Purple-licious! I initially thought to use mixed berries in my bars so […]

Patriotic Cookie Dough Balls

Cookie Dough Balls coming atcha! Full speed ahead. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Chefs in Training Last Friday, I once again babysat for the two little girls I mentioned a few posts back. I love babysitting for them, and I never thought I’d say that because babysitting has never been my favorite thing. But these girls are just so much fun. […]

Watermelon Ice Cream

“When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what the angels eat.” –Mark Twain Watermelon Boy! Some of y’all might remember Whole Foods Boy. But I only referred to him as Whole Foods Boy on the blog. In real life, I gave him the nickname of Watermelon Boy, because he could eat an entire watermelon at […]

Hot Fudge Oatmeal

Hi Chocolate Fudgekins! I don’t really know what a fudgekin is. But it sounds yummy. Breakfast today was incredible. The fudge in the oats created a delicious, gooey mess. If you think “chocolate peanut butter fudge oatmeal” sounds good, I can assure you it tastes even better! Hot Fudge Oatmeal Sliced berries Fudge, such as Chocolate PB Fudge. Sprinkle of […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Peanut Butter? Good. Chocolate? Good. Fudge? Good. As Joey would say on Friends, “What’s not to like?” The best of both worlds. Do you remember my No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie? It’s one of the most-popular recipes on my blog, and for good reason: chocolate and peanut butter are meant for each other. Not that it’s a monogamous […]

Peach Breakfast Bake

Someday, I am going to be a very good grandma. By the time I’m old, I will have had lots of practice. I often sit down for dinner at 5, constantly nag people to eat more vegetables, and living in Florida sounds like a dream! But every now and then, I like to stay out […]

Chickpea Poppers

Full House. For seventeen years, our household consisted of four people: Dad, Mom, Katie, and Michelle. Initially, it felt strange when my sister and I went off to college after so many years living in the same family unit. Now, however, it feels strange when we’re all back together under one roof! Strange, but wonderful. It’s […]

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Side note: Thanks to everyone who now follows the Chocolate-Covered Katie Pinterest Page. You all are the best. Thank you!! Magic Fairy Dust! I had the privilege of babysitting two adorable little girls last night, and I brought my Vitamix. As a teenager, I didn’t really like babysitting, even though do I love children. It’s […]

Cheesecake Pancakes

Cheesecake for Breakfast! If the Cheesecake Factory and IHOP ever had a baby, it might look something like this: My dad likes pancakes And he absolutely loves my Blueberry Pie Pancakes. So I knew that’s what I wanted to make for him on Fathers’ Day. (Yes, I still make him breakfast on Fathers’ Day. Even though […]

Voluminous Vanilla Ice Cream

If you’re on a diet:  You will love this recipe because it makes a gigantic serving for only 40 calories. (Seriously, the serving is huge.) Who eats a 1/2 cup serving of ice cream anways? 😕 If you’re not on a diet: You will love this recipe because you can up the calories by making […]

Creamy Dreamy Frosting

Does this ever happen to you? You fall in love with a certain food or recipe and want to eat it every single day. I experienced this a few months ago, going on a major carrot-cake kick. I ate everything from cupcakes to Carrot Cake in a Bowl. But the love fest left me feeling so burned out […]

Healthy Fudge Brownies

Healthy Brownies. It’s chocolate. And fudge. How could I not be obsessed? I couldn’t capture the fudginess. Brownies just aren’t as photogenic as Cake Batter Milkshakes. Please don’t hold this against them: even a professional photographer would have a hard time showing just how fudgey these secretly healthy brownies are. Healthy Brownies (Makes 12-16 brownies) 1/2 cup […]

Two-Bite Brownies

Nom. Nom Nom. Nom Nom Nom. Have you ever tried a two-bite brownie? I’d not heard of such a thing until after I became a vegan. And honestly? I’d rather eat a big ole brownie than a baby one. But I know a lot of y’all like mini desserts. These will be right up your […]
