I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Ham 'n Cheese Waffles

This is a tasty brunch waffle. The recipe makes 19 so you can eat some now and freeze some to pop in the toaster for a quick breakfast later.  If you don't want to make so many the recipe may be divided in half.


1 cup whole wheat flour
1  1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 tbsps sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp chili powder  

4 eggs
3 cups buttermilk (or soured milk)
1/2 cup melted butter
1  1/2 cups chopped ham
1  1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix together the milk and melted butter. (If you don't have buttermilk simply add a tsp of vinegar to your milk)  Add eggs and milk/butter to a well in the center of the flour.  The batter will be a bit lumpy. Add the ham and cheese and stir together.

Preheat your waffle iron and prepare with cooking spray (just once, not each time you pour the batter in).

Put about 1/3 cup batter in each waffle form.  Check your soup ladle for this.  Mine was exactly the size I needed.

Close the waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes, remove and continue until all the batter is used.

Serve with maple syrup or sweet chili sauce.

Or both : - )

Spread any leftover waffles in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and put in the freezer for 1 hour.  Remove and place them in a ziplok bag, removing as much air as possible (use a straw).  Label and you're good to go!

Note:  I saw this trick on Pinterest for cleaning your waffle iron.  When finished place 2 wet paper towels on the iron and close for a minute or 2.  It makes the wipe up easier.  Easier still would be if I had a waffle iron with removable griddles but I digress!
