Waffles

Waffles

Believe it or not, this recipe does not contain quinoa!

I have been making waffles for years.  Although they take a bit more time and prep than making pancakes, I can’t resist the crisp exterior and delicious, fluffy interior of a waffle.  Since they take a bit more work to prepare, I find that we only make them a few times a year, but once I have my mind set on waffles, there is no stopping me!

Candied Pecans

Maple glazed pecans in a blue dish

I was able to make it to Costco this past weekend.  I haven’t been since before Christmas (October to be completely truthful), and my full cart and bill proved my poor Costco attendance.   I don’t buy everything at Costco, but the one thing I love to stock up on while I am there are almonds and pecans.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies*

Cookies cooling on a cookie rack

*and Peanut Butter

I cannot be the only one that has more than a few bananas in their freezer.  You know what happens; you buy bananas with the best of intentions, and then, by the end of the week, you find you have a couple of bananas that are definitely over ripe sitting on your counter.  Maybe you have even encountered a fruit fly or two.  Seriously, where do these things come from!  So, you do what everyone else does, and throw the bananas in the freezer with thoughts of banana bread and muffins as you shut the freezer door.

Salted Caramel Butter Cookies

Salted Caramel Butter Cookie

I felt the urge to bake this weekend.  I guess it is my version of cabin fever.  Now that spring is right around the corner I have a burning desire to whip up sweet treats.  Or maybe it is because Christmas is so far in my rear-view mirror that I can justify baking again?

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Cookies on a present

With the holiday season in full swing, it is time to think about Christmas baking. I know a lot of people have already started….but the problem I have with starting early, is that Jamie and I raid the freezer of our sweet treats, and we end up having to bake twice as much!

Doughnut Pudding

Bread Pudding made with Doughnuts

This is a title that grabs you and makes you want to read more 😉

We have been making numerous trips to Havelock and Campbellford this summer to deal with Dad’s Estate.  Not exactly how we had planned to spend our summer, but it has allowed us to see Cherie, Dwayne and Sam more than we normally do over the summer.  So that is a definite plus!

Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

My favourite muffin to make is Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip. I have been making this muffin for years. I change it up from time to time, omitting the chocolate chips for fruit, but let’s admit it, we all want that little bit of chocolate in our muffin to make it feel like a bit of a treat 😉
