Good morning sweet friends & how about daylight savings time? Does anyone else hate it as much as me? I kid my family and tell them I’m holding out until the day our non-brilliant political jokesters decide there really isn’t a point to all of this madness. Other than confusing children and babies. Irritating young mothers and teachers and making the rest of us that lived in a time when there was no daylight savings–become belligerent with wishing for such a time. But until that day, here we are. Hating to get out of bed, but the only thing that helps is knowing “brunch” sounds good. Waffles sound good. Give me more waffles!
Many years ago we gave our Boo a Texas waffle iron that he had been wanting. Until then we really had never been a “waffle iron” owning family. Hence, never having made waffles from scratch. So we went searching for waffle recipes and I remember his first attempt like it was yesterday. We anxiously took a bite out of the first waffle and both of us gagged and spit it out. It tasted horrible!!!
Learning to make waffles
His comment…”well the iron is new, maybe I need to make a couple of ’em to get the “new” out of it.” Sure.
So three awful waffles later, we knew something else was amok. He thought back and re-read the recipe. He had added baking soda in place of baking powder. One big ‘ol TABLESPOON of it! We both died laughing and were sad at the wasting of ingredients going in the trash, but he started over. MUCH BETTER after that. We still laugh every time we pull the waffle iron out.
Needless to say, we’ve perfected our favorite recipe and our waffle making skills along the way. This recipe really is our favorite! It’s one that I tweaked from an Allrecipes one. Not just for breakfast recipe– go crazy!
Give Me More Waffles
What I love about this recipe is they are crunchy on the outer edges, soft on the inside with buttery perfection! Seriously the best!
I love to top mine with fresh fruit and flavored syrups vs regular syrup cause I like different. Not that regular syrup won’t be great, it’s just that life is short and I’m hardly bland! Why not go crazy with syrup people?
Either way, I hope you try these out and tell me how much you L❤︎VE ’em! K?

The great thing about waffles is you can have them for any meal, top them with whatever you want and these are perfect for just that! Chicken and waffles for dinner? Yes, please!
Now we just need to replace the waffle iron in the near future (I think it’s on its last leg)! So give me Texas waffles or any shape waffles! Just give me more waffles!!! (Let me know how you like them!)
