easy oatmeal waffles for two

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.

Mix together:

  • 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!

sourdough/ week eight

This week’s bread was oatmeal bread. The recipe made two loaves, and we decided to make both, and give one away. Unfortunately, while in the dough proof, one loaf stuck really badly to some plastic wrap, and the dough deflated some after I tried to gently remove it. So we graciously gave away the round, attractive loaf, and kept its less attractive, but still tasty, twin for ourselves.

I would also like to add that this bread was ginormous. Together, the breads took up an entire sheet tray.

my very own cookies

I’m not sure it technically counts, since I just modified an existing recipe, but I have been telling everyone who will listen that I made my own cookie recipe. I am very good at following recipes, but I am not always as good at knowing what will taste good together, and what ratio they should go together at. But I took my best guess, and they turned out so good! I used this recipe, did a couple minor tweaks, and subbed in some oatmeal for some flour, and added butterscotch chips for chocolate. It has actually been cooler, wetter weather around here, and something about butterscotch and oatmeal seemed appropriate for the season!butterscotch1 butterscotch2Have you ever made up your own recipe? I feel like I need to have at least a couple of my very own recipes, so I can pass them along when I am a grandma.
