Here on our little hillside, in WV, we try to live a simple life. One where we can try to make the best decisions in regards to what we feed our family, and where we source our foods. We try to make green decision that are not only good for our family but for our community and planet as well. There is no place I would rather raise a family, than these WV hills! So I guess it is our responsibility to preserve them, and our heritage.

Blueberry waffles

We love waffles.  They are easy to make.  You can also make larger batches and freeze them to make your own toaster waffles.   What easier breakfast is there for the kiddos?  Plus you control the ingredients, so that is way better than giving your child the store bought kind packed with preservatives and unpronounceable ingredients.  Plus if you do a fruit waffle and if you add butter to the batter, you can cut them in strips and use for a fast breakfast to go.   This also makes a great toddler finger food. 

Waffle batter
1 3/4 cups flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries or other favorite optional

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl,  lightly wisk eggs, add milk, oil, butter, and vanilla to the  eggs.  Stir wet mixture into dry.  Cook till done on a regular or Belgium waffle maker.  

This recipe makes the better frozen waffle.  I have a different recipe for very light airy waffles, but the seem to be better fresh.   Hope to post it later.  Hope ya'll are doing good!
