Cornmeal Waffles

Pretend you don't know that this is a child's plate purchased at IKEA.

We have a tradition in our family to have Breakfast for Dinner on Friday nights. It's easy, it's different, and it gives us a chance to enjoy some breakfast favorites that we don't have time for in the morning.

This past weekend we tried these Blender Cornmeal Waffles. They're super easy - just toss all the ingredients in the blender, blend, and bake 'em off in your waffle iron! These freeze really well, so you can double the batch, cook them all, then keep some in the freezer for those busy mornings!

Note: We make a triple batch of this for our family of 5, so we do it in a bowl and then use our immersion blender to mix.

Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

This bread was one of the first things I pinned on Pinterest, and my husband and I have been drooling over it for months. Finally, today was the day. The problem with Pinterest is that it's just beautiful pictures, so you never know how the recipes will turn out. But this bread tasted amazing, and an actual quote from my husband this morning? "I love it when something I make turns out exactly like the pictures." Crispy on the top, soft in the middle, sticky on the bottom. Can't beat that!

We didn't change the recipe at all, so head on over to Joy the Baker and check out her tutorial on this bread.

We may or may not have been using Our Best Bites' Buttermilk Caramel Syrup for something else in our brunch, and accidentally spooned extra onto our plates to sop up with this bread. Yum!
