The best waffles...EVER (quite possibly!)

What have we been up to since the last post? Camping trip, working on the homebirth book for my midwife, sewing, more stamping with that cute Upsy Daisy set, and this morning? Waffles!!

I LOVE this recipe! I got it from a Taste of Home mini recipe book that the grocery store was selling at the check-out a month or two ago. It had "kid" recipes, which I figure probably have universal appeal, so I bought it. This little book has *tons* of good things inside, but my favorite is WAFFLES. This morning as I made my millionth batch of waffles since buying the book, I figured I should share my recipe with everyone who likes waffles but doesn't care for the effort of *making* breakfast in the mornings! Here goes!

Cottage Cheese Waffles

1 cup cottage cheese, undrained
6 eggs
1/4 cup oil (I use olive, but vegetable oil would be fine too)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt

In a blender, combine the cottage cheese, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Cover and process until well combined. Add flour and salt; process until smooth. Bake in your waffle iron...Voila!

Seriously...does it get any easier? I love that I can do the whole thing in my blender...not even a dirty bowl when I'm done and not a dirty spoon or even a scoop needed! This is my idea of waffle heaven, and then look at all the protein in these puppies!

Alright, I'll move on from my waffle post will have some stamping pictures! Maybe I'll get my film developed from camping (I misplaced my digital camera that weekend!) & can show you my grubby, happy cherubs! :O)
