You’re in for a treat (in more ways than one).
My friend Kelly, home cook and party-planner extraordinaire, is guest posting today—and if I’m we’re lucky, she’ll give us more recipes and posts down the road!
Once you’re finished drooling, make sure to check out my favorite waffle maker on Amazon (I’ve been using it for nearly ten years and have zero complaints), and then try some of my other waffle recipes:
These fruit and cream waffles can be an easy weekend breakfast or a quick, yummy weeknight meal!
I have always had a passion for food and that passion fueled my creative cooking.
As a kid, as well as today, I love recipes that have pictures! I’m not the biggest fan of cookbooks without pictures, and I guess it’s my right brain tendency, to need visuals.
I still have the “American Recipe” cards I ordered when I was about 10 years old! Each card displays a pretty picture of the finished products.
But, these days I follow recipes less and less. I still enjoy perusing the recipes and noticing how some recipes pair different ingredients together.
I like to experiment with foods on my own now more than ever and I often use recipes as guides and add my own flair.
I have also started slowly developing my own repertoire of recipes.
When I am not cooking, I am enjoying home life with my beautiful little family.
My husband, Steve, loves most of my culinary creations, and our beautiful daughter, Delainie, will hopefully soon get to explore them for herself.
I had a career before our daughter blessed our lives, but she was born with several special needs and my new calling is to be home with her.
I love to spend time cooking in the kitchen while she watches in her highchair.
I often put on my own little cooking shows when it’s just the two of us in the kitchen.
I hope you enjoy some of the recipes I share with you; feel free to add your individual flair!
Easy weekend breakfast or quick weeknight meal—have it your way!
- Bisquick or other biscuit/waffle mix (NOT the just add water kind)
- 2 egg whites (whipped ’til slightly stiff peaks form)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg (your preference)
- Non-stick Spray
- 1 bag frozen peaches or blueberries
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoon vanilla (divided)
- 2 tablespoon sugar (divided 1/2 tablespoon and 1-1/2 tablespoon)
This is a breakfast meal we made when we did not have time to make our "famous" from scratch waffles, but wanted the same taste. Adding the stiffened egg whites helps to get that "from scratch" feeling. It makes these waffles lighter and crispier than the result you get when you just follow the package directions. It's just a simple addition and sometimes that's what we want most in the kitchen, simplicity, especially before we have had a full cup of coffee!
