Waffles are a great way to begin the day. The best waffles are the homemade ones. They are quite simple to make, and all you need are a few common ingredients and of course a waffle iron. The toppings can be simple like maple syrup to fancy such as fruit and nuts.

As a practicing vegan/vegetarian, I subscribe to this email alert called Vegan Cuts, to subscribe click here. This is similar to the Groupon coupons promotion, but features weekly vegan deals.
Recently, while checking my email, one of these deals popped up in my inbox. Vegan cuts had sent me a coupon for a case of discounted raw vegan chocolate. That is, chocolate that has been uncooked and therefore left in its highest enzymatic rich state.
This raw vegan chocolate bargain included 12 bars for less than 30 bucks. This may seem a bit pricey, but when consider that all bars are organic, vegan ingredients (which are sometimes hard to source from given lack of supply in demand). Organic food is a niche market. Therefore prices are more expensive than conventionally produced food.
We all know that beer has a bit of a kick. We know that adding soda to hard liquor has some kick. Reality is, drinking in excess has some kick. I am personally a beer fan…yet can only do so much Michelob Ultra. So, I often strive to find something new, exciting and delicious to tap into on a random night on the town…or a random night at home.
I love to make meatloaf, but my kids prefer I take a different approach with my ground beef. They love a dish I threw together one night out of desperation because I had used up most of our weekly groceries. The meal was a hit and now I find myself being asked to prepare it quite often.
Many of us have sought out those “fat free” recipes. Sadly, our searches are often frivolous and the options we happen to locate, lack flavor, creativity or aren’t fat free at all. Often times, as an alternative we opt for the low fat recipes…as the portion of fat they may have, isn’t going to impact your waistline or that scale like the Doritos or cheesecake, we may prefer to sub in.
I for one, am always seeking new recipes or options for a low fat (fat free) or low calorie meal or snack. This has not always been the easiest feat, but recently in my search, I came across a recipe that conquered all of the things I had been seeking: flavor and health: banana muffins.
The cold weather might be dragging you down a little. If you’re missing summer, check out this recipe that’s sure to bring it back during breakfast.

7floz/200ml tepid water
7floz/200ml tepid beer

I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year when I crave comfort foods. Images of creamy mashed potatoes, hot, yet filling soups and the tastiest staple: good old Macaroni and Cheese.
I love coming home after a long day and curling up with a good book and a hot bowl of fork twirling, cheesy noodles. I love topping this dish with breadcrumbs to give it body.
“Have you ever had a tea egg?” I asked her. I could only chuckle at her reply.
