Single-Serving Peanut Butter Cookies

Helloooo Chocolate Sprinkles! Many of you had the same query about the Dark Chocolate Brownie Batter Dip. “What am I supposed to dip in it?” Really, you can dip anything: bananas, strawberries, graham crackers, pancakes, your fingers… you can even mix it into oatmeal or ice cream! Or you can get really, really naughty and […]

Chocolate-Cherry Bomb Oatmeal

Attack of the Chocolate! I said I was going to bombard you with dessert recipes. And what better way to begin the attack than with a chocolate-cherry bomb? Another Crazy Oatmeal Recipe! You can find all my crazy oatmeal recipes here: All things Oatmeal. I’m also working on tagging my oatmeal posts. This recipe was […]

Coconut Chai Milkshakes

Thick. Luxurious. Coconut A few years ago, after drinking a coconut chai shake at Bonobos, I created my own version of the delicious spicy-sweet shake. I’m re-posting an updated version of the recipe today, because the old one was a little hard to follow. Put on a lei, close your eyes, and pretend you’re lounging under a […]

Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes

Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes. Your guests’ tastebuds will think they’ve died and gone to a tropical paradise. You don’t have to tell anyone that such a beautiful and delicious breakfast is actually healthy! What they don’t know won’t hurt them. Their fatness rivals the Blueberry Pie Pancakes. And I didn’t try to shape the top one […]

Pineapple Floats

With Coconut Ice Cream. I’m practicing for when I move to Hawaii. My friends used to love hanging out at my house when we were younger, probably because my mom was the best hostess. She’d always be prepared for guests with freshly-baked cookies, brownies, or even English muffin pizzas. Come summertime, one of her favorite treats to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Blueberry Pie Pancakes

Pleasantly Plump. One might use these words to describe the blueberries I recently purchased at Whole Foods. I’m always excited when summer rolls around and organic blueberries no longer cost an arm and a leg. And a pinky toe. Sadly, the lower prices don’t last forever, and I therefore make it my mission to eat […]

Snickerdoodle Pancakes

Good morning, Snickerdoodles! Do you like snickerdoodle cookies? They’re not my favorite, because they don’t have chocolate! But my mom adores snickerdoodles. So, for Mothers’ Day, I decided to get creative with her breakfast. Apparently, the name “snickerdoodle” comes from a German word for “snail noodles” (a type of pastry). Yummy? 😕 Snickerdoodle Pancakes (makes […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pancakes

Chock full of hearty oats and melty chocolate chips, you’ll feel like you are eating cookie dough for breakfast! Hmm. The same can be said for my Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal. I guess I just really like chocolate for breakfast. No, I didn’t really top my pancakes—the ones I actually ate—with chocolate syrup. But I’d cooked a […]

Strawberry Shortcake for One

Hi, my name is Kate. I was born in London, I have long brown hair, and I have a younger sister. Sadly, no prince charming… yet. Despite the similarities between Kate Middleton and myself, I must confess I’ve not been keeping up with the royal wedding at all. In fact, I didn’t even realize it […]

Dessert Loaves and Doughnuts

A tale of two baking pans… I discovered that if you cook the Single-Lady Cupcake in a mini-loaf pan, you can transform a cupcake into a dessert loaf… for one, of course! Yay! It’s a true Banana Bread for One. (Not that banana bread for more than one is ever a bad thing…) My other […]

The Carrot Cake Milkshake

Health Food = Rabbit Food Normally this is exactly the kind of stereotype I try to dispel on my blog. But today, I’m embracing it full-force: A carrot cake milkshake! A double carrot cake milkshake, as I topped it with my 5-Minute Single Serving Carrot Cake in a Mug recipe. Two carrot cakes are better than one. Carrot […]

Peanut Butter Frozen Hot Chocolate

For most of the year, here in Texas, the weather is… weird. 80 degrees one day, 20 degrees the next. Sunny one minute, hail storm the next. They have a saying about Texas: If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. However, when it turns to summer, you can count on our weather to […]
