None Better Waffles

I have to admit my waffle failure. I received a waffle iron early in my marriage, and I fondly remembered my mother making waffles on a special occasion or random weekend breakfast. Excited, I told my husband I would be making waffles for breakfast. With great anticipation I made them…and made an enormous mess. The … Continue reading

Puff Ball Do-Nuts

From Mrs Ervin Eilers, today we have Puff Ball Do-nuts. They sound a bit like donut holes to me. Yum! I have not tested this recipe and rarely use hot oil for cooking. If you decide to try it, use caution with the oil or fat that you use. Maybe even use a donut fryer, … Continue reading
