CHOCOLATE COVERED KATIE :: AN INTERVIEW WITH THE LOVELY KATIE HIGGINS

Welcome to my Q+A with Katie Higgins — aka Chocolate Covered Katie!  I love and have loved Chocolate Covered Katie for years and for a whirl of reasons.  She’s adorable and likable, gorgeous and brilliant!

She’s been featured on Dr. Oz, CNN, The Today Show and The Huffington Post for her popular blog which receives over 6 million views a month!

Like me — her favorite food is chocolate and believes in eating it every single day.  But she crafts these delicious treats so they pack a nutritional punch and are easier on our waistlines too!

fb1I mean, who woulda thunk?  Black beans based brownies?  She thinks of all these tricks that appease me for being chocolate based and nutrient dense — but my kids love her because they’re obsessed with her deliciously sweet innovations.

Oh, – and her photography is phenom.  (Food porn, for real!)  Ansel Adams is to nature and Herb Ritts is to portraits as Chocolate Covered Katie is to all things yum!  She captivates the best and has you salivating in a nanosecond.

Women’s Health has called her “The Next Nigella Lawson” and Shape Magazine said, “There’s no greater anything-can-be-healthy evidence than the recipes Katie features on her blog.”

I just wish she had a YouTube channel or her own television show.

Until then, you can read my Q&A with her below and buy her incredible cookbook HERE!  Your kids (and your small waistlines) will thank you!
