Easy Waffle Recipe from Growing Up Gabel @thegabels #recipe

My kids love waffles for breakfast and I love an easy waffle recipe.  This waffle recipe fits the bill as it is quick, easy and makes great waffles. Make extra waffles and freeze for a quick breakfast later.  Serve waffles with maple or homemade buttermilk syrup.  If you have[…]

I love making homemade soup for dinner. It makes a filling, inexpensive dinner especially when paired with homemade bread and a tossed salad.  This my second recipe for minestrone soup. The first one used meatballs, but this one uses Italian sausage.  I have to say, I love them[…]

So technically, these are mini-muffins because they are baked in a mini-muffin pan, but they taste just like pumpkin donut holes.  My kids ate this entire batch in one morning.  These are seriously addicting and delicious.  I only have 24 min-muffin cups, but had batter left over so[…]

I bought an ice cream maker about four years ago off of Craigslist.  The first time I attempted ice cream, I ended up with scrambled eggs in it.  There are a few ways to make ice cream and the best results come from making a custard first and[…]

Welcome fall with this pumpkin pie baked oatmeal! Pumpkin is combined with fall inspired spices and then baked for a delicious baked oatmeal breakfast. Oatmeal is a really hard sell as a breakfast dish around here.  We all love it in breakfast cookies  but as a solitary breakfast dish…[…]

I have a “go to” brownie recipe, that every single person in my family LOVES. They ask for brownies for their birthday just to eat them! But the recipe is a bit high end. It requires melting unsweetened chocolate (which I rarely have on hand) and letting it[…]

  I like my waffles crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and my favorite waffle recipe produces just those kind of waffles! But when your 5 year old asks for waffles for breakfast and you have leftover cottage cheese in the fridge… you have to[…]
