Hey there! Thanks for all your sweet words…yall are the best. I have decided to get back to basics with this little blog. I think in recent years I have become more concerned with putting content out there and less concerned with the quality of the content. I started this blog to catalogue recipes and ideas for my kids….so that someday when they are off living their life outside of this home…they will have all my recipes and thoughts at their finger tips. I am getting back to that mission. I may post less….but my hope is that when I do decide to post…that you may find it helpful and interesting too. Like I said a few weeks back….blogging has really changed in the past few years. I can admit that I was more concerned with “pinning” and sharing rather than concerned with what I posted was actually worth sharing. Thanks for sticking with me…and hopefully you will continue to pop in to see what I am up to:)
Hey yall….well if you were following along this weekend on instagram you know that my weekend was full of puppy goodness. We had a ball with Chloe this weekend! We picked her up on Friday around noon….Stella came with us too. Our friend Trisha from Forest Glen Goldens was thrilled to see Stella and have her romp with Stella’s pop, Solei and her mama Savannah. Chloe has been such a fun addition—and puppy breath is heavenly;)
If you could only take 3 chocolate bars on a deserted island for a whole year….what would you take? Mine would be 100 grand, Whatchamacallit and something toffee (that is my answer today….I have been known to be wishy-washy on this subject…) Anywho, I needed to take a dessert to our basketball team dinner a few weeks back and these one bowl toffee blondies were perfect.
Winter arrived here this weekend….and I loved it! I’m weird like that I guess….I like to get all bundled up and go out for a walk…when it’s zero outside. I wouldn’t be happy living in a place that doesn’t have a winter….mind you by the end of February….I am ready for Spring…but I do love a really cold frosty day. Hubs bought me a new parka for Christmas….highly recommend this one from Eddie Bauer if you are looking for one. He bought me a NorthFace…but I ended up taking it back for this one…I liked the style of it a bit more…and just a warm. Here is a warm and toasty homemade waffle to make on these bitter cold mornings….super easy…promise:)
Friends…family…folks….step away from the bisquick. You do NOT need it!! It is filled with not-so-great stuff and making your own waffle or pancake mix takes like 2 seconds…seriously and for real. I know that my dad is now throwing things at his computer because I was basically raised on Bisquick….it’s fine in a pinch….but this recipe makes a light, airy and preservative FREE waffle…yummo! Sorry dad…this is better!!!
