from Scratch…

Lately I have gotten into the habit of using my bisques mix when whipping up a batch of waffles, usually to save on time, either because have slept waaaaay and I have to hurry and get breakfast on the table before it’s lunchtime, or we are about to be late to church. Last Sat. morning convinced me that the extra 5 minutes it takes to make waffles from scratch is more than worth it. Instead of the usual gulping down of the dry/ bland bisquickies with a glass of milk and half a bottle of syrup…the waffles were moist and tasted good even without butter and syrup. Fresh strawberries and whip cream didn’t seem to hurth though. David and I just couldn’t stop " mmmm-ing " over them. . In fact I was impressed enough that I haven’t forgotten (and it’s Thursday) how much I want share this recipe with you:
