Oh, good! I thought my machine was weird or broken or something! It would work to make two in a rowand mix them. Sometimes I'm a real cheapskate!

I just tried using a Kcup for a second cup of coffee and it's pretty weak, maybe if I made two in a row and mixed them? How do you do it TooSweet?

I also found some disks that you can use to reuse the Kcups with your own coffee - you cut the top out of the cup, empty the grounds, let it dry out, fill it with your own coffee and force the disk in - when you put the Kcup back in the machine, just line up the original hole in the bottom and you're good to go!

Just made these crackers - BuuuYah! I used a cup of sunflower seeds at 5 grams of carbs per cup and got 44 crackers for .11 grams per cracker! Of course, all cracker sizes are not equal, so I'll take that into consideration! Thanks, Gary!

Hi Alex.  I absolutely love LOVE my Keurig Machine the Hubs bought me as a gift.  I drink coffee all the time so it pays for me to have one.  Yes It is cheaper to make a full pot but I end up throwing away most of it most of the time.....not saving a thing there...LOL  You can shop around for the best price on the k-cups so many folks have them now.  Plus if you want to save you can get the filter to use your own grounds.  If you are a person that goes out and gets a Dunkins or Starbucks on a regular basis it makes since to get one of these.  You will save so much compaired to getting just one coffee from those places.  ;D

I do love my Keurig - I got it on ebay used, so the price wasn't bad.  It's the big one.  And I love making coffee with it.  I even have the gizmos that let me use my own coffee, but I love the ButterToffee and Hazelnut flavors. I'm just too cheap to buy it at +50 a pop - let's say I'm "thrifty" - so you know I never get coffee at DD or SBucks or any of those places! Kcups give my family something to buy me for Christmas! Sometimes Kohl's gives me a 30% coupon and has the coffee on sale, too, so I can splurge.

I enjoy my Kcups - but the coffee is expensive as well as the machine.  Each Kcup of coffee is 50 or more.  I often open a Kcup and add it to a regular pot of coffee for a whole pot of flavored coffee instead of one cup.  i.e. 2 scoops regular coffee, 1 Kcup = 12 cups flavored coffee.  But it's great for a quick cup of decaf in the evening or if someone comes over and I don't have coffee made. I look for the coffee on sale, but even then it's pricey. Look at the price of 18 Kcups and decide for yourself. Someone said they get more than one cup of coffee out of a Kcup, but it comes out as colored water at my house after the first one.

I use egg whites all the time unless I'm trying to increase my fat intake.

I buy mine from Amazon. Much less expensive if you order enough for free shipping and it comes pretty fast.

Thank you, Tony! I've enjoyed reading the posts. Very caring people here.

If I have 50 posts by the time the new cookbook comes out, can it be my free book?
