A make-ahead mousse that couldn't be easier to make.

Chaffles are low-carb waffles, but they can be used in so many ways. You can change the texture by adding some almond or coconut flour, turn them into sandwiches, modify them into a dessert, change the flavor by using different cheese, etc. This is a basic chaffle, and it's delicious for breakfast with a pat of butter and drizzle of sugar-free syrup.

Instant Pot® Quinoa

Rating: 5 stars 3
Perfect fluffy quinoa. One shot in the Instant Pot®!

Microwave Scrambled Eggs

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
Scrambled eggs have long been a staple for most breakfasts, and most people add assorted ingredients to make their eggs extra fluffy, but this recipe is your basic scrambled eggs with just salt and pepper. If you want to add anything, add butter. Unlike milk, which will dilute the flavor and cause rubbery eggs, butter will make them creamy. Don't want to microwave them? Cook them on the stovetop over medium heat.

Simple Grilled Hot Wings

Rating: 5 stars 2
Very simple hot, hot wings for grilling. Marinate your chicken in a simple hot sauce and grill up while basting those spicy wings with more of that sauce so that none goes to waste!

Basic Air Fryer Hot Dogs

Rating: 4.5 stars 65
Perfectly crisp hot dogs and toasted buns can be made in minutes with the help of your air fryer. Add any toppings you please.

Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Rating: 4.5 stars 29
Two ingredients and less than 5 minutes to a delicious chocolate candy shell for ice cream. After trying recipe after recipe that turned out either rock hard or thick gummy hard shells - I thought to read the ingredient list on a bottle of the store stuff and came up with this! You can use any oil that has NO flavor or has a flavor compatible with chocolate and your ice cream - canola or soybean work ok here, but the coconut oil sends the flavor over the top and makes it a tad crunchier! Drizzle on top of your favorite ice cream!

Microwave Quesadilla

Rating: 5 stars 2
Microwave quesadillas are a quick budget snack for dorm living.
