So I have a question.
Are you a pancake or a waffle person?
I am both! But if I had to choose between the two, I’ll go with waffles. I love the slight crunchiness of the waffles.
I wish I had a pretty picture to share in this post and when I do, I’ll definitely do an update but until then, these pictures will do. This is a family recipe that we’ve been trying ever since I joined my husband’s family. This is a fantastic buttermilk waffles recipe; the waffles are so tasty that I just can’t get enough of them.
These waffles are wonderful with fresh fruits, whipped cream, peanut butter, nutella, or just plain with a little bit of syrup which I love. I just love that unique flavor of freshly cooked waffles. Sometimes I put chocolate chips in them, like in the picture. The kids love it that way! Well, who am I kidding. I love it that way, too!
Basic Buttermilk Waffles
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons soft shortening
- Heat your waffle iron and you may want to grease it by spraying cooking spray or buttering it so the waffles don’t stick. You only need to spray for the first batch.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until lightly frothy.
- In a separate bowl, sift together soda, flour baking powder, and salt.
- Add half the buttermilk to the eggs, then half the dry ingredients, then ALL the shortening.
- Then add the remaining buttermilk and dry ingredients and mix until batter looks somewhat lumpy.
- Pour about 3/4 cup batter onto the waffle iron evenly. Follow the waffle iron directions and cook the waffles to your liking. I like mine a little crunchy so I leave it in the iron a little bit longer.
*You can add chocolate chips to the batter if you’d like. Top the waffles with your favorite waffle toppings. Enjoy!
This is something I like to make for lunch or for light dinner when I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I love all kinds of pasta or spaghetti but I do love simple pasta dishes without sauce. So this is what I often make! [click to continue…]
This is a great simple recipe for lunch, especially for those who are trying to eat healthy but don’t want to give up all the yummy flavors. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh veggies. It’s refreshing but also tasty as well. [click to continue…]
I’ve got a little habit now that I’ve been blogging for years. I tend to take pictures of everything I cook. And I get really frustrated sometimes because I really like the recipe but it’s not really photogenic or for some reason, the pictures don’t turn out as good as it tastes so I end up not posting it on my blog.

I am so excited for Halloween! My boys are going to be Mario and Luigi! We got the costumes all ready to go and I just can’t wait to see them in overalls and those cute hats! What are your plans for Halloween?
Today, I’d like to share a pretty good Korean recipe that you can make at home very easily. And if you have a pressure cooker, the meat will be so tender and it will literally melt in your mouth. But if you don’t have a pressure cooker, this traditional method will work, too. But the meat may not be as tender as you’d like. [click to continue…]
Good morning everyone!
I know I have been a terrible blogger lately. I can’t seem to be able to find time to sit down in front of my desktop anymore! But I am going to try and manage my time better so I can keep up with this blog that I love so much. [click to continue…]
Good afternoon, everyone!
I know I have been a slacker. I’ve been so busy with my two little boys! But I am going to try my best and update this blog as often as possible. How have you all been? My five year old started kindergarten this year and he’s loving every minute of it! I’ve been spending more time alone with my two year old, which has been nice. [click to continue…]
