Katie is a genius.

You know how you can read a blog, see something utterly delicious and be like “I AM gonna make that!” and then never get around to it?

Well, that happened to me with Katie’s Carrot Cake Sandwich. Except for the fact that I ended the insanity today, and I made it. I, and probably you, too, have been missing out. It is so0o0o good! LyKe 4 rEaLz.

If you do tha damn thing right, this is not diet food!

Recipe: Serves 1

1 large carrot

1/4 cup raisins

3 tbsp whipped cream cheese

1/4 cup walnuts & almonds

a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg, ginger, ) and cinnamon

2 slices whole grain bread

1. Blend the raisins with the cream cheese, set aside in the fridge.

2. Blend carrots with the spices, set aside in the fridge.

3. Blend the nuts.

4. Take two slices of bread and microwave them for 5-10 seconds. Spread the creamed raisins over the bread. Then spread a layer of spiced carrots. Then sprinkle on the nuts. Enjoy!

I think one of the reasons that people often don’t make blogger’s recipes is because there are so many. It is helpful if they know that a recipe is a sure-fire delicious success. No one wants to make something and have it be ‘Meh, its okay.’ So, in order to facilitate reader participation, I have labeled which of my recipes are my favorites. I have also taken down all the recipes that I want to revamp to be perfect. You may notice that I took down several bran based muffin recipes. This is because yesterday I discovered THE PERFECT BRAN MUFFIN base. You can use this batter to make any flavor bran muffin. And they will be perfect. I will post that recipe soon… :)

  1. I probably have hundreds beyond hundreds of recipes that I’ve either starred, bookmarked, or saved onto my computer from blogs and other recipes pages. It’s gonna take an entire lifetime to make all those! Honestly, I don’t even remember which ones I actually saved..lol.

  2. oh wow, that is something I would definitely re-create in my kitchen. I love all the blog recipes. I try to find ones that I make gluten free as well.

  3. Oh Lauren, you are the sweetest!! But I think you are the genius: how does your sandwich look so pretty? Mine always look like something thrown onto a plate in a big mess lol!

    And creamed raisins??? Oh my goodness, now you’re really talkin!

  4. You know what, this makes it a lot easier for me because recently I’ve just been feeling… uninspired to make anything. So I’ll definitely check out your new list! :)

  5. I have sooo many recipes I’ve “meant” to try, but time just gets away from me! That looks really good!

  6. Healthy or not, these look freakin’ ridiculous. Yuuuum.
