Crispy Gluten Free Waffles - Perfect for Freezing




We've been making waffles from 'scratch' for some time now simply because they are so incredibly delicious and better than anything you can get from a box. And best of all, after you've cooked the waffles, you can freeze them and pop them into a toaster on busy school mornings.

To make them gluten free, we simply substituted GF flour for regular and used a basic waffle recipe from The Joy of Cooking.

The blueberry syrup that adorns the waffles was made, by Mom, by combining a simple syrup (water and sugar) with a small container of blueberries, and then straining.

Here's the waffle recipe:

Sift together:

1 3/4 cups gluten free flour
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar


In a separate small bowl combine:

3 egg yolks (reserve the egg whites, you'll fold them in later)

6 Tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Extras:

Add in a small handful of your favorite nuts, or chocolate chips, or dried fruit


Stir together the wet and dry ingredients. Then whisk the egg whites until stiff, and gently fold into the batter.

Ladle batter gently onto the waffle iron, cook until crispy.

Any leftover cooked waffles can be frozen and popped into a toaster for a wonderful busy morning breakfast.

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.




Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
