It was a lazy Saturday. The boys had gone from place to place the day before so I told them they could sleep in. The first one up was the Imaginative One. So I asked him what he wanted for breakfast – waffles or pancakes. He decided waffles sounded delicious.
From February 2014 – August 2014, I tried to use blogger as my platform for my cooking blog. I still have some recipes on there that I haven’t transferred to this blog. Snickerdoodle waffles is one of those recipes. So when the Imaginative One decided on waffles for breakfast, I decided to make those waffles.
When Hubby woke up, I was making the waffles. He thought I was making French toast or French toast sticks because of the cinnamon smell. Hubby will eat cereal for breakfast. The exception to that rule is if I have already made the breakfast for him before he was up. So he ate a couple of the waffles for breakfast. He loved them so did both the Wee One and the Imaginative One.
They all had maple syrup with their waffles while I used fresh butter from our favorite dairy. Yum!
Oh and the Imaginative One told me that the blog is like my own personal cookbook. That is exactly the goal of this blog.

Today’s memorable blog post is from when my father-in-law died in 2013. I was participating in a group called Elf for Health during the Christmas season. We were given daily challenges to complete. Right after he died, the challenge was to share something you were good at. Mine was about the importance of taking pictures. To date, this is one of my favorite blog posts.
