Waffles Everywhere

In our home, if it is Sunday, it is Waffle Day.

This tradition has happend pretty much ever since I received a waffle maker for Christmas last year. It's great for a lazy Sunday morning and is such an easy make for when we have guests.

For just Jason & I, we are pretty satisfied with my basic waffle recipe with chocolate chips. However, every now and then or if we have guests, I like to mix it up and make it a little fancier.



These are our St. Patty's day Mint chocolate chip waffles.

My basic waffle recipe that I work from is from Fat Free Vegan Blog. I love Susan's recipes and the versatality that almost all of them have. I've been using her recipes for years and she has never let me down!

When it is just Jason & I for breakfast this is the recipe I follow:

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Waffles (serves 2):
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup almond milk (can subsitite soy or any other dairy free milk)
1/2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of mint extract
1 Tablespoon agave nectar or sweetner of choice (we used a packet of truvia)
A few drops of green food coloring (if you need it..it was St patricks day so it felt appropriate)
Handful of chocolate chips (use how much you would like..we like a lot.)

Heat up your waffle iron. Mix dry ingredients through salt together in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix milk, vinegar, extract, coloring(if using), and sweetener. Add wet to dry and mix. Mix in chocolate chips until just combined. Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray and use about 1/3 c of mix per waffle. Cook until done. Serve!

I've also experimented with Carrot Cake Waffles:



These were perfect around Easter time or really any time!
Add grated carrot to original recipe, substitute the mint extract with vanilla extract, and do not add chocolate chips. This was delicious and I'm sure would be even better with a cream cheese drizzle!

I've also made a Brownie Batter Waffle:



With this, you would substitute the mint extract with vanilla extract and add cocoa powder to the dry mix. These were definitely delicious and we felt like we were eating dessert for breakfast!

I've also made Almond Joy waffles using almond extract instead of vanilla and adding shredded coconut!
Waffles are so versatile and I love coming up with new creations in the morning.They make any morning seem extravagant even when you're sitting in your own living room!

OMG I want to eat all of these waffles!! The almond joy one sounds like pure decadence. Almond, coconut and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations and it sounds like the perfect waffle flavor. Great ideas! I also love the St. Paddy's day one :)

Why do you have baking powder listed twice in the ingredients?

You will love the way you can use the light, medium or dark shade settings to be able to get your waffles in the right way. If you love your waffles in a particular way then you will get them just the way you like them when you make them in the Calphalon HE400WM No Peek Belgian Waffle Maker.

This 5-quart model will help you make casseroles, soup,
and roasts easily. I highly recommend the Crock-Pot Cook Carry Countdown Slow Cooker as a great slow cooker that any
household would be grateful to have. cup of organic beef juice (grease-extracted), preferably left-over from cooking a roast or prime rib.

One minor drawback is that the radiator does get quite hot.
It is a lovely room but it gets very cold in the winter.
Are you thinking about building or remodeling your home but want to do
it in an environmentally friendly way.

It was an aerosol can of either Barbasol or Colgate. Cleaning cartridges should be
replaced every month or two (though we may
be up to six weeks), which can make you a bit expensive for some people.
On the back of the card that comes with the razor, it states that
you should, "Change the cartridge when empty holes start to appear in the gel reservoir".

Go for a cheap air compressor for your workshop - Go
to different shops to compare prices before buying air compressor.
Probably it is not as easy as if dirt bike
games, but it is by all odds something that may
be done in your yard. Tires are often inflated by the use of air compressors, and
certain tools, like nail guns, are also fed by compressed air.

However, with the movie Zombieland, it was an entirely different
approach to dealing with zombie apocalypse. In fact the term zombie came from the region and refers
to persons who have undergone such a mind altering experience.
People will be taking Darwin's Theory to the next level and may even slay you just for supplies.

An electric toothbrush is motorized and usually battery-operated with a charger that sits on the bathroom counter.
Unscrew the toothbrush from the base, and rinse both pieces thoroughly, inside and out.

It will also tell you when it is time to change your brushing direction and all the other things that those
LCD's used to do. Do it little by little and cautiously because the bleach might get accidentally on your clothing or nearly anything that is bordering you. This is now Steve Ballmer's Microsoft, and it seems quite different from the giant built by Bill Gates.

The only problem I see with this Braun Series 7 is that it is quite expensive
for most. It has the ability to tilt and pivot for great close shave.

When you use the air, to say, inflate a tire it comes out of the air tank.
If you spray a product into the core, it is necessary to first drill a tiny hole into the top of the
plastic heater box under the hood. Several strain controls can be operated with all brands of compressors and can come with visible contacts, enough room for wiring with numerous openings and holes.
