How to Roast Vegetables in the Slow Cooker

Some things in life are too good to be true. That daily email informing me I’ve won the $100 million Swiss lotto? Too good to be true.   Annoying Infomercial Guy who excitedly informs you there’s a way to make money while you sleep? And if you call in the next ten minutes, he’ll reveal […]

Pecan Pie Cookie Dough Balls

Side note: Yes, I’ve gone back to the old blog header. This change isn’t permanent. Currently I’m working with a web designer the most patient person in the world to completely overhaul the site’s layout, making it much more user-friendly (including a print option for the recipes). Hopefully it will all be completed soon. New […]

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

Can you guess my favorite food? Macaroni and cheese. Okay maybe it’s my second favorite, after chocolate. But seriously, if you served me vegan macaroni and cheese every night for dinner, you’d never hear me complain. Not once. It is my #1 comfort food of choice, and many of my childhood holiday dinners went something […]

German Chocolate Cake for One

Double-layer chocolate cake, with gooey caramel-coconut-pecan frosting in each and every decadent bite. The cake part is just my recipe for […]

5 Minute Microwave Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles you can make in minutes… They can even be made in the microwave. For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that preparing homemade truffles is difficult and time-consuming. Plus, most recipes call for heavy cream, which I can’t eat as a vegan. But there are ways to make them using canned coconut milk, […]

Healthy Apple Crumble Recipe

Healthy Apple Crumble! A little-known fact about me: I love apple crumble so much that I sometimes choose it over chocolate. I’ve been known to choose it over dinner, too. It all started during my freshman year of high school, one night before the prom, when my group of friends ate at a place called at […]

Pumpkin Frosting Shots

The only thing better than a chocolate cupcake topped with homemade […]

Crock Pot Oatmeal

Lately, my favorite breakfast is a giant bowl of creamy crock pot oatmeal, hot from the slow cooker. It brings back memories of visiting my grandparents’ house as a young girl. Grandpa believed steel-cut oats were the healthiest food you could eat, and he’d get up every morning at 5 AM to make sure that […]

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Oh yes, crustless pumpkin pie! This crustless pumpkin pie recipe is crazy. You could actually eat the entire 8 servings of pie and still consume less fat and fewer calories than if you ate just one slice of many traditional pies!!! Not that I’d recommend eating an entire pie in one serving… But this crustless […]

How to make your own White Chocolate Chips

White chocolate is not really chocolate. Just like tomatoes aren’t really vegetables. Lentils aren’t really beans. Koalas aren’t really bears… Life’s confusing, isn’t it? Sometimes people are surprised to find not a single white chocolate recipe on this entire chocolate-covered blog. White chocolate has just never been my favorite thing… because I want it to taste […]
