    My low carb, keto Everything Chaffle has all the delicious tastiness of a bagel with cream cheese and everything seasoning, but has only 4 net carbs!

    But wait… what exactly is a chaffle? A chaffle is a CHeese wAFFLE! Yup! A waffle with cheese. But it gets better. The most basic chaffle is just egg and mozzarella cheese. Can you believe it contains no flour, no wheat flour at all, that is loaded with carbs? Wh-aaaat?!?!

    So, let’s see… it is low carb and perfect for keto dieters. It has no wheat flour, so it is gluten free. And it contains no meat so it is vegetarian. Win! Win!… and Win!

    Can you tell I am a little excited about this concoction? A chaffle is delicious on its own plus an amazing little base for all kinds of delicious goodness.

    Are you ready for something new to sip on this summer?  My Coconut Sunrise will surprise you with every sip.

    I love layered cocktails like the Lava Flow and stacked drinks like the B-52.  So, I thought I would create my own lightly boozy drink that would have definite layers.  You might think making these types of drinks is hard, but I promise you it is not hard at all.

    This year I want to start Valentine’s Day off right with a special treat for breakfast. Sweetheart Scones are just the right amount of sweet to start a sweet day.  As a bonus, both the yeast and the hint of vanilla makes the kitchen smell absolutely heavenly as Sweetheart Scones rise and then as they bake.

    Recipe Notes

    •  Always salt the cooking water for the spaghetti. Without salting the cooking water, the pasta will taste flat and require salt later in the cooking of this dish.
    •  Check the pasta package as to the cooking times for the particular brand you are using. Cook the pasta about 1 to 2 minutes less than the minimum time stated on the package.
    •  Frozen green peas are excellent in this dish and an economical alternative to fresh peas.
    •  Although, this dish is using mostly pantry and kitchen staples, the best flavor comes from using the best ingredients. If available, always use the best grade and best tasting olive oil. Also, if available, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is preferred for it’s intensely salty-nutty flavor, but parmesan cheese is good too.
    VARIATIONS & SUBSTITUTIONS
    •  Substitutions for the green (English) peas: Fresh parsley or chives. Sugar Snap Peas – roll cut the sugar snap peas into 1/3” pieces. Cooked asparagus tips. Cooked and shelled edamame.
    •  Add any one of the following: 2 tablespoons finely diced cooked ham or pancetta. 2 tablespoons crumbled bacon.
    •  Garnish with garlic and butter flavored crushed croutons or toasted walnuts.
