Karl’s Blueberry Waffles

Since I learned to make pancakes from scratch, I no longer have any commercial pancake  mix in the house. I had adapted a Martha Stewart pancake recipe—less sugar for diabetics—and I went on to adapt a waffle recipe—which turned out to be very close to Martha Stewart’s recipe (again lower sugar). Now, I decided to take it one step further by adding some dried blueberries for Jan’s Mother’s Day breakfast.

Jan’s Red, White, and Blueberries

Jan made the dessert for our Fourth of July weekend dinner. It of course had to be patriotically themed, but the recipes in the newspaper were all full of sugar. The kids are on the Atkins diet so sugar. The berries themselves are suspect, but she did not have to add extra sugar the whipped cream.

Karl’s Blueberry Bran Muffins

Adapted from a Fiber One recipe

Miriam and Chris have gone off carbohydrates and gave us some Fiber One cereal. Earlier this week, Jan looked up a recipe for muffins and I adapted it to our tastes. While I am not a fan of bran, they were actually pretty good. Today, I had some blueberries starting to go bad on the counter and I thought blueberry muffins!

Jan’s Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Jan is still on a blended food diet, so she has been making a lot of smoothies. The blueberries help a lot in disguising the dark green of the kale, so today’s smoothie looked quite presentable and tasty.  Jan thought it was delicious.

Jan’s Red, White, and Blueberries

This is one of those more of a technique than a recipe. We have friends coming over for a last minute BBQ. Jan decided to make this as a Fourth of July dessert.

Karl’s Banana Oat Muffins with Pecans and Blueberries

Several months ago Cook’s Illustrated had a oat muffin recipe. I made it very closely to the recipe and my household was very disappointed in it. While it was a tasty oat cupcake, it was not a “muffin!” Cook’s illustrated did, however, have some good techniques for enhancing the oat flavor by toasting the raw oats and then grinding them into flour.
