Raspberry Waffles

Raspberry Waffles

Valentine’s Day is all about my loves… my husband, two beautiful children, and food.  Let’s put a pause on all the red dyes and hard candies and spoil ourselves (oh… and our special someone too) with a gorgeous, satisfying, and I-can’t-stop-myself-from-eating breakfast.  I made a couple batches of these Raspberry Waffles, ya know, just to make sure they taste as good the tenth time as they did the first.  Spoil alert: They did.       Okay, let me talk about my food crushes.  I absolutely ADORE fresh fruit and breakfast foods.  I’ve been known to flirt with muffins behind my waffle’s back, but my new Belgian waffle iron has only magnified my infatuation with waffles.  I just use some olive oil in my Misto Olive Oil Sprayer and pour on some of my favorite batters like my Multigrain Waffles or my Banana Waffles.   I usually double my batch and refrigerate the leftovers just so I can make fresh waffles for a few mornings in a row.     I have discovered a few must have ingredients in order to make waffles, muffins, and other baked goods light and fluffy while sneaking in some solid nutrients.  The first is whole wheat pastry flour.   It prevents your whole wheat items from turning into dense bricks!  It has all the benefits of whole wheat, but keeps everything light and fluffy.  Also, you must invest in a bag of Flaxseed Meal and Chia Seeds.  They are power grains packed with protein, fiber, and Omega-3s and you won’t even be able to taste them!  Like I said, I’m all about sneaking health into tasty things and...
Mini Cobblers and Gender Reveal Recipe!

Mini Cobblers and Gender Reveal Recipe!

I’ve been brainstorming and researching on some fun gender reveal recipes.  However, most used dye (yuck!) and lots of sugar (I always can live with a little sugar) and made mostly from a box (yeah… that’s not going to work for me). So, I produced these little babies to help me reveal what gender my little baby is.       I love my CorningWare especially my little ramekins.  They bake evenly, are really sturdy, and clean easily.  They conveniently come in a pack of 4 on Amazon and very reasonably priced.  Definitely worth having a few on hand for fun recipes such as these mini cobblers!  Oh, you still want to know the sex of our baby?       Well, last night I had a vivid dream.  In my dream, I was with my husband having the ultrasound and the sonographer announced ‘it’s a girl!’  My husband and I headed to the ultrasound this morning both confident we were having another baby girl.  I couldn’t wait to share these mini raspberry cobblers announcing we were having a girl!       The sonographer clarified one more time whether or not we wanted to know the gender.  While my husband and I held hands, we assured her we wanted to know.  We were anticipating an ‘it’s a girl!’ but instead we heard ‘it’s a boy!’  As much as I loved those mini raspberry cobblers, the blueberry mini cobblers get the spotlight today.  We’re having a boy mid August!  We’re very excited and incredibly blessed that he appears healthy and strong.  Now… I seriously need your help with names!  We’ve got...
