Golden Waffles

5 Mar

This weekend my mother in law came to town from Atlanta. I had the chance to spend some time with her and the Mr. which is always fun. We spent time with family and Pop (Bryan’s grandfather) who was recently in the hospital in the Intensive Care Unit for about two weeks. He was out and about with us walking around which was a great feeling. This morning I woke up extra early and decided to make breakfast. On the menu…. WAFFLES!! Oh and also eggs, turkey bacon and turkey sausage. 🙂 One of my favorite breakfast foods is waffles. I love going to Brunch and having Belgian Waffles with strawberries and lots of whipped cream. Waffles are also great as a dessert with ice cream or even just plain. Yes, waffles are awesome!! I would have loved a waffle ice cream sandwich this morning but I figured syrup will do for breakfast. 🙂 Try out this recipe for some delicious waffles and eat them whatever way you would like. Enjoy!!! 🙂

French Toast Crunch

12 Dec

Good Morning Loves! Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a great weekend because of course we are now back to our regularly scheduled program. I don’t know about y’all but Mondays are usually  a drag. It’s the first day after the weekend and day 1 of 5 of the work week for most. Who really would like Monday?! Come on guys!! lol. Even though it is Monday, just like every other day, breakfast is a must! I know we all have heard over and over again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast gives you fuel and energy you need to get you through the day. So y’all know we need breakfast on a Monday morning. Now unfortunately, I don’t wake up in time to cook breakfast in the morning. I can barely get out of the bed, soooooo breakfast for me this morning will consist of yogurt and a grapefruit. Saturday morning I did get a chance to make some delicious French Toast Crunch. This recipe is a simple quick weekend breakfast that can be prepared or you can even make it during the week if you are unlike me and have a extra 20 minutes to spare. 🙂
