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.

Women are Highly Esteemed in the Eyes of This Man

I enter the sanctuary of Our Lady of Peace Church and my eyes adjust to the dimmed lights as the only illumination comes from candles on the altar and their glowing reflection in the monstrance holding the Blessed Sacrament.
My friend and I had come to join the Mary and Martha’s quarterly meeting which started with an hour of Adoration.
I took my seat in one of the pews, knelt, and surreptitiously glanced around the sanctuary. In the gloaming, I could see thirty other women kneeling like sentinels in silent prayer. 
Over the course of the hour, we would remain in contemplative silence.
As I slipped in and out of my prayers and wandering thoughts, I considered how pleased God must be when he sees us gathered in the simple and divine act of Adoration.
But in fact, women are highly esteemed in God’s sight not matter where we are. 
We only look at the life of Jesus Christ to understand how dearly he cherishes every woman.
In the Gospel of Saint John, a group of men bring a woman caught i…

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…

If you are tired of the guilt trip you usually feel at church, here’s a different perspective

I am counting the days until I fly to Fort Lauderdale to see Mom for Christmas. Yes, I speak with her every day, sometimes twice a day. But as you know, phone calls just aren’t the same as being with someone you love. I look forward to seeing Mom’s smile, to holding her hand, to going for a drive along the beach with her. Spending time in the presence of someone we love enriches our relationship with them.
I believe the love I feel for Mom, is a sliver of what God feels for each of us. I believe God longs to share that love with us. Which is why we are called to spend time in God’s presence daily. We experience God’s presence when we meet him in our prayers, in church, and hopefully in one another. If I could make one wish for each of us, it would be that at some point during the next four weeks of Advent we would experience how much Jesus loves us.



The Best Christmas

During my morning devotions, I read these two verses of Psalm 117:
Praise theLord,all you nations;
extol him, all you peop…
