My New Favorite Ingredient

Well, my most favorite ingredient now is the greek yogurt by Yoplait.  Yes folks, it's good stuff.  It's fat free, smooth and blends well with pretty much anything you would use butter for.  I use it for mac n cheese sauce, I use it for waffles...the list is endless.

I made us buckwheat waffles on Monday and they turned out pretty tasty.  Didn't have the brains to take a photo, so I'll just post the recipe.  You got to try them!

Buckwheat Waffles (I guess you could do pancakes too...)
(The original recipe I found on the internet was adapted from the Pancake Handbook)
This is perfect for 2 people, as stated in the recipe, and I agree.  Fed me and hubby just right...

1/2 C Buckwheat flour
1/2 C all purpose flour  (if I'd had any handy, I would have used whole wheat)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 to 2 tsp sugar substitute - I used Truvia
2 egg whites, whipped
1 container Yoplait greek plain yogurt
1/2 to 1 C water

blend all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  In a smaller bowl, blend all the wet ingredients, using half the water.  Add to the dry ingredients and enough water to make a good batter.  Cook on a hot waffle iron until done.  Serve hot with fresh strawberries and whipped cream...yum!
