And in the Morning, I'm Makin' WAFFLES!

True story:  the first time I can remember wanting a KitchenAid stand mixer was when I was about 12.  My sister and I used to watch the Frugal Gourmet and I wanted to BE Martha Stewart, and they both had stand mixers so I SHOULD TOO!

For my birthday last year, the BF surprised (shocked, awed) me with MY VERY OWN STAND MIXER.  I was so stinkin' excited, and I still get a little tinge of joy every time I look at it.  Knowing how much I loved my new mixer, my mama got me the KitchenAid Best-Loved Recipes cookbook for Christmas last year.  Another true story:  I hadn't used it until Sunday, when I whipped up the Crispy Waffles.

Final true story:  I wish these waffles had been a little easier to whip up.  They required a washing of my mixer bowl mid-preparation, and I like to avoid that process at all costs.  However, when my waffles ended up looking like this:

My whining over mid-prep clean-up ceased.  Amazing waffles, peeps.  UH-MA-ZING.

Wait!  One more true story!  My love for all things shoe-related doesn't extend exclusively to uber expensive beauties.



Go figure.


  1. How do you eat all of this yummy food and stay so skinny? Oh yea, your Monday thru Friday diet : )

  2. Those shoes you can afford! LOL!!

  3. yum, waffles! looks delish. i rekindled my love for them about a year ago but i've never made them myself. i buy the frozen ones at the grocery store...ha! i really want the kitchen aid mixer! i had one on our registry but then deleted it b/c i wasn't sure i'd use it. they are so pretty - kitchen eye candy.
