Welcome Linda. Jump right in and don't be shy. We were all exactly where you are now once. This is a great place to learn. And we are ALL still learning, believe me.

I'll go find the waffle recipe to share. BRB.

Looking for a waffle iron, any suggestions? Won't be something I use a lot. Have some good coupons for Kohls that expire tomorrow.

This was posted by Jillybean on the 80/15/5 thread:


1/4 cup skim ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 packets Splenda

Of course, I used whole milk ricotta, not skim, and I used stevia instead of Splenda. The recipe is actually for waffles, but I don't own a waffle iron, and other comments on the recipe said they'd used the same recipe for pancakes, so that's what I did. The directions said to beat the eggs for a minute on high to make them nice and fluffy before adding the other ingredients, but I didn't do that - I just whisked everything together by hand.


I did cook them in a waffle iron and slathered them with butter and a drizzle of SF maple syrup. Yum!! I sprayed the iron and it's about 8x4 (2 squares) and it made 3 regular size squares and a smallish one.

I think I bought my waffle iron at Walmart, super cheap. Usually around Christmas everybody starts carrying them and advertising them.

Sandy thank you so much! I'm so glad I bought that ricotta now!!
I've got to sub into that 80/15/5 thread - I've peeked and I think it's interesting, too.

I saw my aunt put out her mother's old waffle iron for a garage sale and snapped it up. It's so old and I've tried several times to remove the years of oily build-up but... we just operate it in the garage! I really love that waffle iron because it makes the thin crisp waffles.

I have another waffle iron given to me probably 20 years ago from my dad - it was from Williams-Sonoma and it's a Belgian waffler. I obviously need two waffle irons because I haven't made any waffles since before June 4.

Is this for the whole recipe Judy?

Hmmm, the problem with getting a waffle iron is, I probably will seldom use it and another thing to store. I did see a stovetop iron one, that would fit in a drawer, thought about that, it did get high reviews??? Got to use these Kohl' coupons on something

Just had a tall mug of hot chocolate and one of the muffins right out of the oven. I replaced 1/4 c of the 1 1/2 cups of almond flour with 1/4 c of almond bran. Tasted a little more branny or whole grain type of texture, which I like, but kind of masked the pumpkin flavor some. I wouldn't order the almond bran for this, but since I have it, will prob make them this way for more fiber, etc. I did like the added pecans, I added 3/4 cup chopped pecans, think 1/2 cup would be plenty, but 3/4 cup jumped out of the bag, so in they went.

The hot chocolate I made just like my old standby which was 2-3 heaping tea spoons of sugar, 1 heaping tea spoon of cocoa, add a couple of splashes of HWC and stir well, put in microwave for 15-20 seconds, take out, stir really well, maybe nuke a little longer, then add whole milk to top of cup and heat until hot.
This I made using Swerve and unsweet almond vanilla flavored milk. Not quite as rich tasting as my old standby but quite good. Will be good this winter on a cold night.

Yes, sorry - for the whole recipe.

I know what you mean about not needing a waffle iron often.

I actually have a stovetop iron one, too. They are a little labor intensive, flipping it over and whatnot. You know where else waffle irons can live? The garage.

Sandy, that is what DD did, but she does use hers frequently, makes waffle batter up ahead and makes waffles several times a week for the kids. If it gets to sticking, or whatever, she just tosses it and gets a new one.

Well thank you and THANK YOU! I'll add 1/2 cup pecans on my next pumpkin muffin batch.

And I am so excited to be able to drink real hot chocolate this winter!! Thank you so much for this. I think I'll probably use Hood milk rather than almond milk - but I'll have both so I can have fun tasting and trying.

Judy, this would have been even better with more cream and less milk but I was getting short on calories for the day

I'm so glad to see a hot chocolate recipe. That is something I miss in the evenings. Thanks Buffy. I have some chopped up pecans ready for my next muffins too.

Let's see what about November's Thankful Losers

Happy Halloween everyone!
Up very early today, woke up about 2 hours ago and haven't been able to get back to sleep, maybe in a little while, then it really will be time to get up. Had 2 nights of wonderful, easy to get to sleep, slept well, then last night, couldn't get to sleep and then woke up 4 hours later. Frustrating.

Got my big, big, big bag of Swerve all put into smaller containers and into the freezer.

Last night I went by DGS's house to see his costume. Tonight I am going to the 2 little ones house to see them off to go trick or treating. Won't get to see little Oliver but told them to be sure and send pictures. Wow, he is almost 2 years old.

No doubt! I was going for alliteration, but I lean far more toward thankful than nimble!

Way To Go Buffy!
Carolyn hope your appointment goes well. What test are you having to fast for? I guess I missed that somewhere.
I spent 4 & 1/2 hours in town after work today - totally unbelievable! I kept meeting people & chatting, and seeing people I knew... My usual duration of town is 1 hour! And that totally exhausted me. PTL! I'm getting so much better! (Poor puppy... was in the crate that much longer)!
Have a great day you guys

Just checking in, gained 2.2 today. But still figuring all this out. So I will just keep reading. Lots of good stuff on here to read. I need some healings in my body and know this is how to do it. So won't give up. I love the positive words on here.

You is a HIPPIE girl!

My DIL grew up with true hippie parents, she said she was always so embarrassed by her birthday cake as a kid, it was always some whole grain, healthy kind of cake her mom had made. But, she taught her well, when DGS came along, that little mommy knew how to feed him and feed him right. She is a great mommy and her parent's great as well.
