Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey by Laurie Dotson

Hello Waffles, Mama’s here to eat you up!!

Oh, how I love the smell of waffles cooking in the griddle.   I enjoy spreading the cold butter and watching it melt, in each crispy, square crevasse .  I’m one to devour my first waffle and then taking my sweet time with the second.  Melted butter with warm honey and cinnimon or fresh maple syrup. ~ Oh Lord, help this girl! She a bit delirious with Joy!   Not everyone likes their waffles like I do.  So, I allow my family to choose their own toppings ~ buffet-style.  We like syrup,  jams, fruits, cinnamon and powdered sugar, toasted nuts, and, if I want to splurge and become queen for a day. I put out the whipped cream and chocolate chips.  Lordy, Lordy, Lordy!  A whole lot of goodness all over the house!  🙂

PS.  I have a secret!   My waffles are healthy waffles… don’t tell!

Get in my belly!

Get in my belly!

Psalm 30:5   New English Translation (NET)

 For his anger lasts only a brief moment, and his good favor restores one’s life.  One may experience sorrow during the night, but joy arrives in the morning.
