Easy {Cinnamon Sugar} Waffles

We love breakfast foods and these Easy {Cinnamon Sugar} Waffles are at the top of our list. Since we rarely have time in the mornings for a big breakfast (who does?) we try to do Sunday night breakfast each week. I rotate several recipes on our breakfast menu each month but pancakes and waffles are…

A Weekly Menu November

Week’s Menu #5 ~ November 9-13

We’ve been eating lots of good food around here lately despite my lapse in posting a weekly menu. There’s been some take-out pizza and good leftovers for “on your own” suppers for those extra busy days. You might’ve noticed I took a little trip with a friend last week.

Week’s Menu #1: September 10-17

When Pie Happens

Monday morning rolls around and so begins the self-torture.  I step on the scale to confirm what my jeans already know. Too much eating plus too little activity equals too tight jeans. I turn over the worn out leaf again and vow that carbs and sugar will never pass through my lips again. Then pie…
