Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Frosting

Don’t you wish the more food you ate the skinnier you would get? Wouldn’t that be fabulous? Seriously FAB-U-LOUS.

Spring Has Sprung

Spring time is a great time to get back in the kitchen. And Spring is all about brunches and spring-y recipes. Your head might still be in a kitchen fog from being held hostage  in your house during during this past long and erratic winter, so I am here to point you in the right direction for some springtime […]

Chicken and Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese & Giveaway

Macaroni and cheese, an old favorite in these parts. I don’t think two words go together better than “cheese” and “macaroni.” I’m pretty sure mac and cheese is one of the first things I learned how to cook as a kid. Now, I am not talking about the microwave, powdered-cheese variety, I’m talking about the […]

Buffalo Chicken Eggo Bites

I hope you guys aren’t sick of waffles yet, I know I’m not. These are really really good y’all. And probably one of the simplest things I have ever created using a bunch of shortcuts. But you know what? Shortcuts are totally fine. When you are entertaining, you don’t want to be in the kitchen […]

Eggo Strawberry Shortcake

Was it wrong that I had these for breakfast? I mean, there are 2 Eggo® Nutri-Grain Waffles in there…and fruit….and  dairy. That equals a balanced meal. Aside for being beautiful photos(yes, I’m tooting my own horn), these super easy strawberry shortcakes are a cinch to make. No biscuit making, which cuts out ohhhhh, about a […]

Summer Salad with Eggo Croutons & Giveaway

If it were up to me, I would have salad every night for dinner. It doesn’t happen often since my kids don’t like salad. So when I ship them off to friends houses, I always make a nice salad full of fruit, and some protein. Strawberries and blueberries are both in season right now, take […]

Churro Eggo Dippers

When I think of amusement park food, one of the first things that pops into my head is the Churro! Have you had them? The are crispy fried dough sticks covered in cinnamon sugar. Their kinda ridiculously good. As a Chief Waffle Officer, when I saw the Eggo® French Toast Waffles, I knew I had […]
