Recipe: Waffles

We never had a waffle maker growing up. I know, my mom obviously did not love us. Obviously. When I got married, I registered for a waffle maker because I was determined to show my family I loved them by making them waffles.

I used baking mix for awhile and then I grew tired of buying it. I found some great pancake recipes that I love. I have a recent addition to the rotation of a brown sugar oatmeal one that is to die for, but I will post that later. Hahaha, hate me, yet?

Today, I am offering you the waffle recipe I found that is ridiculously easy and makes great waffles, every time. If you do not have the wheat flour, you can substitute in all unbleached, but really, why do you not have wheat flour?


  • 1 c. unbleached flour
  • 1 c. wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbls. sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 oz butter, melted
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • cinnamon to taste

In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk.

In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk gently until combined. Add in a dash or two of cinnamon if you are feeling fancy.

Let sit a couple minutes, then cook the batter using a waffle iron.

From yesterday:

Nothing says “Top o’ the mornin’!” like your four year old barfing in your doorway at 4 am. It was that kind of day here.

Luckily, Gideon was only sick the once and after a day of convalescing in front of the TV, he is quite recovered. I only hope the rest of us have escaped the germs.

The exciting incident also led me to scrub the floor, we have laminate in most of the house, from our bedroom to the bathroom. I figured while I was on my hands and knees I should finish the job and now I have clean floors. I hate cleaning the floors, but they do look nice.

It continues to be a zoo at my house. Who knew two large dogs and two boys had the ability to sound like the entire wild Africa section of the zoo? Sometimes, I think I live in the ape house. Not the monkey house, mind you, because monkeys have TAILS.

So here is wishing you a barf free week. May your floors be clean and your sleep uninterrupted.

p.s. We are now a barf free zone.
