Hi Tammy,
I think your waffles look delicious. I had a huge failure with a waffle maker I bought recently, the batter stuck into it. My old waffle maker stopped working, so now I'm looking for a new one (the old one was 15 years old). What waffle maker do you use? It seems to work beautifully with this batter, and I would be eager to get one that comes recommended...
Thanks for your help!

We have a GE brand waffle/sandwich maker that we got at WalMart in 2002. I can't seem to find that same one online. It's a thicker one, but not the thickest I've seen. (Joshua says there is a waffle maker at Costco that makes 1" thick waffles!) It only makes 2 squares at a time (so, rather slow for large crowds) but does work well.

The kind of batter does make a difference, though. I have had horrible disasters with waffle batter sticking everywhere! :P The waffle recipes I have online -- I specifically say if I need to spray the waffle iron with oil first, or if they cook perfectly with no additional oil sprayed on... :)

hmmm...pizza THREE times in one week? My kids (teens) are so wanting to come to YOUR house :) Excellent menu by the way and I need to check out the baked apple oatmeal ... (psst...got sidetracked with the match question!)

Okay, so that does seem a little excessive! ;) But our company on Friday is different from our company on Saturday, and company always loves pizza... :) Also, I am not planning leftovers of the pizzas, so it's really less pizza than it sounds like. ;)

Who says you can't eat it more? = ) Nice menu!
