These waffles have the best secret ingredient!!Take a lesson from Leslie Knope and enjoy some delicious waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner! While I've created many varieties-pumpkin, apple spice, blueberry-there is a secret ingredient that makes all the waffles I cook light and fluffy. It's buttermilk. If you can't find buttermilk, you can substitute regular milk (or even almond or coconut for a dairy free version). Just omit the 1/4 tsp baking soda in the recipe below. This recipe makes 8 waffles. It's easy to double if you need more.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs separated
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon sugar (I prefer the raw cane kind)
2 tablespoons melted butter

1. You'll need three bowls. In the largest, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sugar and yolks go in the second. Egg whites go in the last.
2. Use a mixer to whip up the egg whites

Cut down the calories, but not the flavor! Fried crispy eggplant covered in tomato sauce and slathered with cheese is the ultimate comfort food, but it's not exactly good for you. Although I love to order Eggplant Parmesan in a restaurant, I rarely do because I know how much oil and cheese goes into making this fabulous dish--an enormous amount of fat that I would have to run 100 miles to work off - and I am NOT a runner. If I just have ruined your day with the knowledge that this fabulous dish is known to be heavy on the fat and the calories, cheer up, because there's a solution! I've been making this recipe for "skinny" eggplant Parmesan ever since I was in college and, although it actually never magically made me skinny, it sure didn't add to the problem. I got to have my cake and eat it too, so to speak. Crispy eggplant slathered in sauce and cheese is comforting and delicious; you'd never know it was baked and not fried.

Bring a touch of England to the breakfast table!This English muffin bread is a crowd pleaser in my house and the perfect breakfast for chilly mornings or for a simple snack. It's easy and quick to make, even though it calls for quick rise yeast. Anytime I see "yeast" on the ingredient list, I start to shy away thinking it will be too hard. I tend to lean towards "no fail" quick bread recipes, but I recently got my courage up to buy a pack of quick rise yeast and try my hand at making this delicious recipe. It was a hit of course! Unlike regular quick breads, this bread was dense enough to be toasted, which was amazing. Drizzled with a bit of honey or jam was all I really needed, but it was also the perfect compliment to the hearty breakfast I was making. My family has been asking when I'll be making this again!

A cheesy apple a day keeps the doctor away! My son is in one of those stages where all he wants for lunch is quesadillas. I had to get creative. I started to experiment with different fruits, vegetables, proteins and nuts and I found this recipe to be the winner. I realized that the crunch of this quesadilla coming from the apples was what was making my son devour the whole thing. Filled with tender, baby kale, and roasted turkey, this quick lunch made it complete and me feel great he was getting a good dose of vitamins his growing 4 year-old body-needs. Make sure you use a very crunchy apple and very tender greens, the flavors will blend very well with the cheese melt and the already seasoned turkey breast.Read More »from Add a Fall Twist to Your Quesadilla with Apple, Baby Kale and Turkey!

A new, delicious way to make your chicken tonight!At home we eat lots of chicken. So I try to look for different ways to make it. I found out about these chicken rolls a little bit ago and it didn't seem hard so I gave it a try with my own ingredient combination and a sauce. The result is very nice and what I like the most is that it is different! I usually buy the frozen chicken breast cutlets, they will help in cooking these rolls so not to have a big chicken breast to work with. It is best if you thaw them because they will absorb the flavors better, and you can let it sit with seasonings before cooking. Kids might not be into the sun dried tomatoes easily, but I keep offering because otherwise how are we going to teach them try new flavors? They have slowly agreed to try new foods and they have liked some of them. The cilantro sauce will help combine the flavors together in this dish!

Perfect for a school lunch or family dinner!There's nothing my daughter loves more than pasta with cheese sauce but like any mom I like to try to make her favorite foods more healthy and nutritious. This pasta sauce is so creamy and delicious it will become a family favorite fast!Read More »from Better Than Alfredo! Guilt-Free Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta
1/2 pound uncooked pasta or 4 cups cooked pasta
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup butternut squash puree
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Butternut squash puree can be found at most major grocery stores. You can also make it home by simply roasting a butternut squash that has been cut in half and seeds discarded. Place the squash face down in a baking dish and roast for 45 minutes until tender in 425°F oven. Remove the squash by scooping it out of the skin with a spoon and place it in a food processor or blender to puree or place in a bowl and mash with a fork until smooth.

Everything is better with bacon! Believe it or not, the Brussels sprout is a beloved little veggie in my house. My daughter's favorite way to eat them is simply roasted with olive oil and a pinch of salt - no steamy mushy sprouts going on here! When we want to jazz this tiny green cabbage up for a twist on the classic, I simply add just a touch of brown sugar and a sprinkling of bacon. It's in the way the sugar is added to the dish with a splash of water to create a glaze that delivers a slight sweetness. No need for a sugar bomb to spice these up! Slightly sweet with a bite of savory bacon makes this Brussels sprout dish a favorite twist on the classic!
3 slices of bacon
1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
