Spring-Green Saag

This dish did not want to look pretty. I tried! Can you take my word that it tastes 1000 times better than it looks? If not, you’ll just have to make it for yourself, to see! Above: saag, easy veggie salad, and Polenta for One. (Side-note: I love raw pine nuts. They are like candy!) Here’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

Breakfast Polenta

Tired of Oatmeal? Yes, the question is ridiculous. How could anyone tire of oatmeal, with its infinite flavor possibilities? For endless oatmeal inspiration, see: My Oatmeal Recipes. Sometimes, however,  it’s good to have variety. And it’s always good to have polenta! Brekkie Polenta (Serves 1) 1/3 cup dry cornmeal (40g) (I use whole-grain) 1 cup […]

Carrot Cake in a Bowl

Girl-Scout Fudge Babies

Also known as… Samoas Fudge Babies! No, not the spicy Indian potato thing. That’s a samosa. This is a samoa. You don’t want to get the two confused! Awhile back, I posted a recipe for Raw Thin-Mint Brownies. In that post, I vowed to someday try making raw samoas, my favorite girl-scout cookies as a […]

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen hot chocolate. It seems every time I mention my love for New York City, someone will ask, “Have you been to Serendipity? Have you had their frozen hot chocolate? It’s life-changing!” What’s a healthy-eating vegan, who’s never been to Serendipity, to do? Make my own frozen hot chocolate, of course! Frozen Hot Chocolate  (Makes […]

Yumlicious Lentil Curry

You’re shocked, right? No chocolate, and no sprinkles today! You might not know it from my recent posts, but I promise I don’t sit around all day eating chocolatey desserts… Today I’ve decided to break the “desserts-only” streak, on which I’ve been for the past month or so, with a savory recipe featuring one of […]

The Chocolate Cake-Batter Milkshake

Recently, I met a new friend, named Erika. This girl did not believe healthy food can taste naughty. She hadn’t yet heard of the CC Diet philosophy. Naturally, I felt it was my duty to introduce her. But for Erika’s grave situation, a plain cake-batter shake just wouldn’t suffice. I needed to bring out the […]

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Yesterday morning, I spied a very brown banana hanging out on the kitchen counter. My first thought was: Score! I can make… Banana Pancakes for One. But then I got an even better idea. Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Adapted from: Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal 1/2 cup rolled oats (50 g) a litle over 1/16th tsp salt a […]

Spinach Ice Cream??

Spinach Ice Cream? The spinach will be our little secret; I swear you cannot taste it at all! It’s an ice-cream version of a recipe posted a few weeks ago. This recipe: Mint-Chocolate Milkshake. (That shake is one of my fave recipes on the whole blog!) Finally the weather’s getting warmer. When I discovered that the […]

“Irish Soda” Oatmeal Cake

Oatmeal Cake… for One! It’s like eating a giant oatmeal cookie, all by yourself! You might worry that oatmeal cake won’t keep you full like a big bowl of hot oats, but guess what: This cake is so dense and so filling! For Thanksgiving, I posted this recipe: Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal. Afterwards, I made a […]
