Makin' Waffles

July 25, 2010

Nothing better than breakfast for dinner. Zoe asked to help make the waffles and she looked mighty cute doing it. She mixed everything and dumped in all the ingredients. If you look close you can see her tan lines on her little biceps, lots of time in the sun this summer.
I'm so excited I got to take these pictures. I couple weeks ago, I won a new scrapbooking line, from Lily Bee, called Domestic Bliss. These pictures will be perfect for that. You can see the collection here.

Finally, here's my crafty share.
It's that time of year when all the craft companies come out with their new products. In preparation for that, I'm trying to use up my stuff from last season and scraps. I made this little mini book to house some of my favorite pictures of Zoe from this summer. It's 4"x4" and it's bound with staples in the middle and Japanese washi (paper) tape.

I haven't finished the project simply because of lack of time + lack of a color ink cartridge (it ran out).
I know I keep saying that but truly life is just crowded right now.

I will do my best to keep the blog up for the rest of summer, but no promises ok? :)

Before I go, I wanted to share an amazing new recipe.
Yesterday while we were out and about, we stopped at a local fruit stand to get some fresh strawberries, we got some strawberries, but the blackberries looked divine, so we grabbed some of those too.
I had never cooked with blackberries before but after digging through recipes online, we decided to make our traditional apple crisp but with blackberries. It was delicious!

So here's my adjusted recipe. (Original apple crisp recipe by Betty Crocker)
Blackberry-Apple Crisp
Base:
2 medium apples (peeled and sliced)
3-4 cups fresh blackberries

Topping:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cooking oats
1/3 cup butter (softened)
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg

Vanilla ice cream, on the side.

1. layer apples and blackberries in a greased 9X13 pan
2. mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. cut in softened butter, until mix is crumbly.
3. Spread topping over the fruit.
4. cook at 350 for 30 minutes.
5. enjoy!

Have a great week!

XOXO,
Holly & Co.
