Aunt Jemima Waffles

 There’s nothing like hot waffles for breakfast… that soft, chewy confection with the crispy, crunchy edges drenched in butter and syrup, has always been a classic favorite of mine.  And Aunt Jemima makes it so easy a kid can do it.

Making Breakfast

 This weekend Noah made his own breakfast with just the push of a button.  Now that’s convenient!

These days, however, the waffle has branched out.  If you stroll the internet, you’ll find waffles topped with fruit, cream cheese, peanut butter, and even chocolate!  Waffles also make a great bread substitute for your bacon, egg, & cheese sandwich, breakfast casserole recipes, and more!  Recently I bought some Aunt Jemima Homestyle Waffles, and they inspired me to think outside the box (literally)  and create a recipe especially for this fall season.

friday favorites

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s linky party.  It’s so great to see all the back to school and fall content that everyone is starting to put out!  This week I’m featuring a few apple recipes.  I think of apple as the fruit of the fall season, so I’m sure you will see more apple stuff here in the coming months.  Wink!

Also, if you are in to giveaways, my 5-hour Energy Giveaway is still open, and the prize includes a $25 GC.  I’ve also got some fun giveaways coming up, including something great for all the coffee lovers out there, so stay tuned!

And lastly, I’d love to get your feedback on some of my latest posts.  I’ve been working on a lot of fun content for back to school, football season, and fall, so please  subscribe to my RSS feed or follow along on Blog Lovin’ to catch all the latest updates.  In particular, I’d love to check out the posts I did on All Day Beauty with Neutrogena and my Smooth Summer with Gillette Flexball.  I had a lot of fun creating these, and I think they turned out well.  I’d love to get your comments!

Easy Apple Pie Ice Cream

Nothing says summer quite like ice cream. As a kid we used to make homemade ice cream every couple weeks from Memorial Day and Labor Day, but the process of filling and cranking the ice cream maker was arduous. While I would love to continue the homemade ice cream tradition with my own kids, cranking the machine for 4 hours is just not practical. Instead, we’ve found a much simpler way to create delicious flavored ice cream while still going about our summer activities. I’ll usually whip up the concoction just before we head out to the park or the pool, so that by the time we get home we can relax on the porch and indulge.

This recipe is super easy and leaves much room for variation. My favorite ice cream flavor we’ve tried is by far the all-American apple pie. We’ve tried other flavorings and all have been great (including some adventures with chocolate and peanut butter) but apple pie stands out as the crowd favorite in my home.
