Raised Yeast Waffles
Baby kitchen gal!
About this Cook
I cook for my picky best friend (husband!), my wild and crazy toddler girl and someday, for my sweet little baby boy! Oh, and myself I guess! Sometimes I feel like a short order cook, sometimes I feel like a pro at a five star restaurant...but I ALWAYS feel like the kitchen is my favorite place to be! What can I say, I'm a kitchen gal!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Piccata. There is nothing I cook that makes my husband smile as much as piccata!
My favorite family cooking traditions

Fluffy Pancakes
These were fantastic! Very light and out, they will suck up your syrup very fast, don't put too much on thinking you need's INSIDE the pancake! Mmmmmmm....threw some bananas on these and have been smiling ever since. VERY GOOD.

Spicy Black Bean Soup
This soup was INSANE. SO good...I can't say enough good about it! I was out of dry beans so I ended up using two cans of black beans and two cans of black eyed peas in it. AWESOME. I also used andouille sausage instead of just regular ham...the subtle heat this added was out of this world. I HIGHLY recommend getting your hands on some good andouille for this recipe. My two year old and three year old gobbled it right up (but they eat a lot of spicy food) and my husband couldn't stop talking about it and he is normally way "souped out" by this time of the year. OH! Also, I added about a third cup of rice...which was very good and left out the carrots. Also I sauteed the onions, celery, garlic, etc in the bottom of the pan in butter before adding the rest of the stuff. This soup was unbelievable. Seriously, make it. NOW!

I did a really half-assed job of cooking this caramel...I just had WAY too much going on at once, two sick toddlers, a huge meal to cook at the same time, etc....and it came out WONDERFULLY anyway! I highly, highly recommend this recipe. Caramel I've made in the past has tasted yummy, but never had the smooth consistency I was looking for. This is nice and hard, silky smooth and DELICIOUS!
