Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are serious comfort food! Back in high school, I took a summer job one year at a vet’s office and was initially very excited about it. Someone actually wanted to pay me to play with puppies?! Hello, dream job! Or so I thought… Working in the back room on […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Mini Muffins

As I hinted in my Chocolate Guinness Brownies post, there are probably quite a few things about me that, even in seven years of blogging, have never come up and might surprise some people! For instance, I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned on here how much I love to dance—any kind of dancing; I love […]

Copycat Juice Generation Acai Smoothie Bowls

When I visited my younger sister a few weeks ago in New York City, she insisted on taking me to a healthy fast-food place called Juice Generation for their famous acai smoothie bowls she claimed were “the best things ever!” I found this proclamation to be really funny, and if you knew my sister you would […]

Cheezy Baked Polenta Fries

The Ultimate Non-Fast-Food Meal: Cook up some of my favorite Portobello Mushroom Burgers and serve with grilled onion rings on the side. Maybe grill slices of zucchini or red peppers while you’re at it. And, of course, you will want fries with that, right? Today’s Polenta Fries photos and recipe are courtesy of a talented […]

Healthy Makeover: Entenmann’s Chocolate Covered Mini Donuts

Just 35 calories each… including the frosting! Entenmann’s Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts have been on my “healthy makeover” list for a long time. Growing up, they were always one of my favorite junk foods, and on more than one occasion I tried to sneak them into my mother’s grocery cart when she wasn’t looking. Sadly, those store-bought […]

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries So many funny, awkward, or crazy things have happened to me since moving. I could fill three notebooks with stories of situations in which I’ve found myself–situations with friends, situations with guys, or sometimes even with strangers… and I wish I could figure out a way to write them all here without […]

Oatmeal Almond Butter Cookies

Almond Butter Cookies! The summer after our first year back from college, my best friends and I took a road trip to Austin, Texas. If you’ve ever been on a road trip with friends, you know that stocking the car with an ample variety of snack foods is of the utmost importance. We made a […]

Cookies & Cream Pudding Pops

Growing up, my sister and I went through a phase where we decided it would be completely fantastic to own a pickup truck. We hatched this brilliant (or so we thought) idea on an uncomfortably-humid Philadelphia summer’s day, and our logic was that the back of the truck could be filled with water, turning it into […]

Tiramisu Pancakes

Thank you to everyone who likes The Chocolate-Covered Katie Facebook Page. On Saturday, it reached 100,000 facebook likes, and I can’t even find words for how much your support means to me. THANK YOU!! There will be a giant “thank you” giveaway up next week. But today I want to show my appreciation with Tiramisu Pancakes. High […]

The Pink Energizer Smoothie

Last week, I did something I was never able to do while living in Texas: Pack a bag, hop on a train, and find myself in New York City less than 3 hours later. I spent the week in New York, the weekend in Philadelphia, and was back in my own apartment by Monday morning. […]

Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Pudding Cups

For more than half of my fourth grade existence, I went through a phase where I was completely obsessed with Jello pudding cups. Every day, I’d find a different flavor packed into my lunchbox—anything from chocolate, to butterscotch, to cheesecake, to classic vanilla. I loved them all. Today’s recipe reminds me of those Jello pudding […]

Peanut Butter Rice Pudding

Creamy, peanut buttery comfort food. High in both fiber and protein, peanut butter rice pudding is one of those easy desserts that can be made with just a few ingredients, no blender, and no difficult cooking techniques. It’s super easy to customize if you’re craving, say, chocolate chip peanut butter rice pudding. Now why would […]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

Hello from Upstate New York, where I’m currently up to my ears in chocolate eggs, chocolate candy, and chocolate bunnies (never a bad situation in which to find oneself). With a very large and very Italian extended family, food is always plentiful when we get together. On Saturday morning, figuring it’d be a good idea […]

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Dip

My mornings used to look like this: Drag myself out of bed before sunrise, grab a quick snack while lacing up my sneakers, then rush out the door—rain or sun or snow—to run 7 or 8 miles. My mornings now look like this: Wake up and lazily contemplate getting out of bed for a while […]
