Spaghetti Squash Lo Mein

Knowing this is a dessert blog, and reading today’s post title, you might have put two and two together and come up with… Something really weird. 😕 Actually, I don’t want to know what you came up with. Please don’t tell me. Or anyone else. Ever. Rest assured, today’s post is not dessert… well, unless […]

Sugar Cookie Milkshake!

This tastes like you’re drinking a sugar cookie. Ok, that just sounds weird… but this is really good! Ensure? No thanks! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know I don’t really like being as skinny as I am. Although I create recipes that can be very low in calories, I usually […]

Introducing: Protein French Fries

These are not French fries… And yet… They are just as crazy addictive! Do you get enough protein? Eleven years ago, as a teenaged animal lover, I decided to completely stop eating meat. My nervous mom worried I’d have difficulty getting enough protein, and she made me do extensive research to ensure I’d be a […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Deep-Dish Cinnamon Roll Pie

Look into the spiral. Swirly, twirly frosting. You are getting very sleepy hungry… See? Who says hypnosis doesn’t work? Birthday Girl A few weeks ago, my little sister flew in from Boston for Thanksgiving. Her birthday also falls close to the holiday, and therefore we held a special birthday dinner for her at my parents’ […]

Gingerbread Peanut Butter

Home Alone, Love Actually, Elf… I have a giant stack of Christmas movies all ready to watch. One of my favorite parts of December is watching as many Christmas movies as I possibly can. (Another is listening to holiday music on the radio. Does anyone else think “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is the […]

Healthy Chocolate Pecan Pie

Chocolate pecan pie. Of course chocolate. Would you expect anything less from a chocolate-covered blog? You all saw my ugly pecan pie. Luckily, the second try turned out much prettier–and much more delicious. This secretly healthy pecan pie is the perfect balance of gooey, chewy, rich, and sweet. If you can’t stop eating the raw batter, you know […]

Pumpkin Cookie Dough Dip

Just try to keep your spoon out of this: Oh forget it. Resistance is futile. I made this pumpkin cookie dough dip for a Halloween party on Saturday. But it almost didn’t get there. My roommate and I had a difficult time taking the dip out of the food processor… we kept stealing more and more […]

Homemade Luna Bars!

Since beginning this blog, I’ve created many flavors of Homemade Larabars. But when, out of curiosity one day, I googled homemade Luna bars, I was surprised to find zero relevant results. Really? No one had made these yet? It was definitely time to change that. I don’t usually buy Luna bars, but every now and […]

Chocolate Bar Pie

I’m thinking of starting a new blog. The blog will be called: I love Chocolate Pies. It’ll focus solely on variations of my Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie. I’m pretty sure that chocolate pie is my favorite recipe on the entire blog. There’s just one problem: I love the pie so much that I keep making more […]

Giant Chocolate-Chip Cookie Cake

A giant chocolate-chip cookie. Can you think of anything better? Right now, I can’t. But give me a second… Nope. Still cant. Presenting a healthier version of the famous Great American Cookie Cake. This one is whole-grain, gluten-free, and high in fiber. But don’t let those adjectives scare you away; the recipe has the stamp […]

The Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie

I am 25 years old today! Someone suggested I should take the day off from blogging. But that’d be no fun. You know what would be fun? Sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes in the whole wide world What if I told you that in less than ten minutes, you can make this: What […]
