French Toast Waffles

This fine Sunday morning I decided to make “French Toast Waffles”.  This idea came to me last week on one of my morning walks.  I enjoy taking a four mile walk with my dog, Remington, several days a week and that is where I do most of my thinking and contemplating.  It is my most peaceful time of day and I couldn’t live without it.  It’s my happy time, my me time.  Plus, Remington has so much fun and that is super important to me.

As I was walking the other day, I wondered what it would be like if I made waffles in my waffle maker and then dipped them in an egg, milk, and vanilla mixture and put them on my griddle to make French Toast out of them. This was a great idea!  I made my waffles from a box mix, added about a teaspoon of vanilla (because, let’s face it, a little vanilla adds a lot of flavor), and a little kosher salt.  I add kosher salt to all my baking.  Just a pinch, that’s all.   After the French toast waffles were done, I put cut up strawberries on top, sprinkled powdered sugar over the waffles, and drizzled maple syrup over the top.  My family loved them, they were really flavorful, so yummy!  Happy Sunday everyone!

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
