We love making waffles on the weekend. Jon almost always puts butter and syrup on his, but this time we made a ton of fruit to go on top.
I like making extra waffles, but since there are just two of us, I usually make smaller batches. Here is a quick recipe for some yummy oatmeal waffles.
- 1 cup Bisquick
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 3 Tbs melted butter
- Bit of cinnamon
Pour into waffle maker and cook until ready! We made 4 waffles on our waffle maker. Enjoy!
This week we went to Blue Star Cafeteria. We drank our coffee, and I was jealous of his cheese grits. (But he’s the best so he shared with me.)
SuBruNo (Sunday-Brunch-Nothing) is something that the girl and I came up with because we’ve made a focused effort to only do the following on Sundays: Sunday stuff (like church), Brunch (because breakfast is our favorite meal) and Nothing (because that’s what Sundays are for).
This past weekend we tried out a new brunch spot with one of our close friends down at the Austin Ale House in downtown Austin. It had a cool vibe and was not too busy which we liked. The coffee was good, the service was prompt and their brunch was nice so all-in-all I would have to say it was a solid brunch adventure. I had the steak & eggs since they didn’t have eggs benedict and the girl had their free-range scramble which looked delicious.
Now, all we have to decide is where to this Sunday?
We got there a bit early so we took a nice stroll around the block.
I like a simple menu with not too many choices.
Cool light fixture.
Steak & eggs plus french fries. Tasty.
Two best friends.
I am on an ongoing journey to find a muffin recipe that makes those big muffins with the big fat tops on them. I read somewhere that the secret was using yogurt, or something like that to give your muffin some oomph when its baking. I used a recipe similar to this, and added some lemon zest and poppy seeds.
One of the best parts of making muffins or cupcakes is putting the little cupcake liners in the pan. Instantly makes me feel like I am in the kitchen with my ma.
This batter is super thick. I imagine you could maybe put it in a loaf pan and make bread too.
The recipe said it makes 12 muffins. I checked multiple times. So I made only 12 (overflowing) muffins.
I skipped a glaze on top, since its mostly sugar, and we are trying to be a little healthy here.
And here is the huge muffin! Perfect for our Sunday brunch. I don’t think it is my perfect muffin recipe yet, but by george, it sure has a glorious top on it.
