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!

I think, I told you in one of my past posts, that I have removed sugar and flour from my diet.  Well, I’m still doing it, the best I can. There are the occasional chocolate chip cookies, pizza slices or dinner at a friends, who does eat sugar and flour.  I’m not going to complain about a gracious cook or a delicious meal. No sirree!  But at the Dotson home, this is what we’re doing.  So try this great “Take and Go” breakfast bar.
