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!!!
So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)
You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….
Hey Yall! How was your Halloween? It was suppose to rain but it held off until later…ended up being a perfect night. We were those people who left the bowl of candy…along with a note that stated the honor code ” take 2 leave some for others.” We came home and the bowl was empty….as expected I suppose. We had a nice dinner out and went to a friends firepit….great night. So different than Halloween’s of years past. Our kiddos both had plans…so it all worked out well:)
This recipe is a perfect way to spend a cozy fall morning with a cup of hot joe. I may or may not be slightly or definitely addicted to Amazon Prime. Do you have that problem? I have had Amazon Prime for about 2 years now so it’s not like it’s anything new…. but occasionally I will go on there to buy like batteries or pencils ….whatever I need and then something pops up on my screen and I click on it and I’m like yeah I totally want that even though I wasn’t originally shopping for it I totally need that.
