Mom's Light Waffles

A few month ago my Mom made waffles for my nephew.  He stood by her and curiously watched her.  Finally when she asked him if he was ready to eat, he exclaimed, "WOW Grandma, I thought waffles only came from a box!!" So cute!!  It is kind of a tradition my mom has started to make the grandkids waffles for breakfast when they visit her house.  My girls kept on her until she made them and we were all happy she did. She said this is a recipe that my grandma always made. They were light and delicious!! We had no leftovers!!
Mom's Light Waffles
2 eggs (separate the whites and yolks)
2 cups milk
4 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine 2 egg yolks and rest of the ingredients except; egg whites.
Beat 2 egg whites until they peak.  Fold into the other mixture.
Cook according to your waffle maker directions.
We served them with Buttermilk Syrup. Light and delicious!!
Thanks to my sweet Mom!!


  1. Mmmmm I love waffles. I haven't made them in a long time because I am trying to cut back on carbs to get my body alkaline.

  2. I've never made homemade waffles, bet they're great! Love the added beaten egg whites:@)

  3. That is similar to the recipe I use for waffles. The beaten egg whites make all the difference.

  4. What a fun tradition to begin! I always liked waffles so much better than pancakes. There were all those little squares to fill with butter and syrup. :-)

  5. If I made these waffles I wouldn't have leftovers either Tiffanee! They look delicious!

  6. These even look light in your pictures. Never would have thought to beat the egg whites separately on my own. Yum!

  7. What a lovely tradition, Tiffanee. My grandkids don't get to visit often so now I have Bellegem Waffle Mix sent to them every few months from Williams-Sonoma. My son-in-law is the waffle maker when I'm not around and he just loves it!!! (I also sent them a new waffle maker just to be sure)

    Please thank your mom for sharing this recipe. Now I want waffles and ice cream!!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
