It's a Beautiful (Waffle) Morning


One of my favorite "groovin' oldies" songs, It's a Beautiful Morning by The Rascals, perfectly expresses my feelings today. And there is nothing that gets my groove on like a beautiful Oklahoma morning with a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast. To further brighten my day, the Rose of Sharon bush has finally started blooming. Who needs fireworks when nature provides such dazzling displays?

On to the kitchen--armed with about 15,000 recipes I've bookmarked the past few days to make for the Fourth of July weekend, I decided to pump up my energy with a crispy Whole Grain Waffle by What A Dish!.


These waffles meet my strict standards for crispiness, which is surprising, because applesauce is subbed for part of the oil. Plus they are wholesome and nutritious with flax seed, whole wheat flour, and oatmeal; and Hubby, who shies away from anything labeled "healthy", loves them! The grains lend a nutty, sweet flavor that just adds to the crunchy appeal of these waffles.



Happy Fourth of July!

  1. I'm in awe of your waffles! I love waffles sooooo much...I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a used waffle iron as we don't have one.

  3. My chickies love waffles. Their momma is not so much on hardly any breakfast foods, so they don't get 'em often. Poor things. LOL

  7. The waffles look good. ;) I love all the buttah- that's how I do it! Is that a hibiscus?
