When I am not busy taking care of my two energetic little boys, or working on an interior design project~ I play in the kitchen! For the last 15 years, I have been juxtaposing new flavors and ideas; it’s finally time to document my recipes...

I believe in fresh & affordable meals.

Whole Wheat Almond Waffles

I love the aroma of my kitchen in the morning with these waffles on the iron. My kids eat them like candy.
2 eggs
1 3/4 milk or almond milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup veg oil (you can sub applesauce, but i think waffles need the oil to be their best- if you must sub, try 1/4 cup applesauce 1/4 cup oil)
2 tsp. honey
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract

Put all ingredients in bowl. Use mixer for 2 minutes on high speed. Spray waffle iron with pam, and pour away.


Strawberry butter- 2 tablespoons strawberry jam & 2 tablespoons butter.
Top it off with fresh berries, yogurt, flax, nuts, whatev!

Makes apx. 8 large waffles. Freeze what you don't use and pop in toaster when you want to enjoy again!

What can eggs do for you???
1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent macular degeneraton due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources.
2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.
3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.
7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person's lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.
8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.
10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.
