Classic Mini Waffles #SecretRecipeClub

src_waffles
Waffles are one of my favorite things to eat. I always order them over pancakes or French Toast when I’m at breakfast or brunch. The reason is that I can’t make them at home. I don’t have a waffle iron, let alone a waffle recipe or mix.

That’s why I was excited for this month’s Secret Recipe Club pair-up with Rebekah from Making Miracles. Rebekah had not one, but two recipes for waffles! I chose to go with her “Classic Waffles” because Not only does this recipe whip up in a jiffy, but it is a tried and true “Family Favorite” from Rebekah’s family.

This recipe also gave me an excuse to use my parents’ “Circus Waffle Iron” to make some mini-waffles. Because of that, I halved the recipe and still was able to get around 12 mini waffles from it.

Check out Making Miracles for more about Rebekah’s family, food, and memories and the Secret Recipe Linkup below to so who else participated in this month’s reveal.

The Persimmon Tree® Tea Company: White Guava

Dry Leaves

Tasting Notes The first smell I get when about to sip this tea reminds me of trail mix with dried, juicy fruit. The taste itself is more mild and clean. The taste opens with guava and then leads into the white peony. The aftertaste is a mix of

Single Origin Teas: Candied Chestnut

Packaging

Tasting Notes The dry leaves smell of rum and sugared nuts (think of those roasted nut stands in Asia). The smell of the brewed tea is of roasted nuts and smokiness with a hit of sweetness at the end. The liquor is a light amber. The sip starts

Banoffee Danger Pie #SecretRecipeClub

Banoffee Pie is one of my favorite desserts. It's a simple combination of bananas and toffee that together taste, as a whole, more than their parts. I've only seen a few banoffee "in the wild", and whenever I see it I snatch it up. That's why when
