I know this isn’t an unique concept but… I love weekends. For my family and me weekends mean lazy mornings spent cuddling in bed, warm cups of tea cradled between hands, reading books, chatting about our week, sharing secrets, tickles, giggles and love… followed by a yummy brunch, usually consisting of pancakes or waffles.
A few months ago this all changed for 2 reasons.
1. The Hubs started working weekends (such a bummer) and though I consider myself quite skilled in the kitchen, mama just can’t master pancakes and whenever I try using the waffle maker a huge mess ensues.
2. I started a weight loss program and since have been eating a paleo/clean eating diet and the pancakes and waffles we used to eat just didn’t fit into that program.
Every weekend my kiddos have been asking mama to make waffles and every weekend I’ve been avoiding the situation making something else instead. I finally decided it was time to change all of that and work on developing a REALLY DELICIOUS paleo waffle recipe.
Around the same time as I made this decision I got my hands on a fabulous Breville No Mess Waffle Maker… and let me tell you friends… It lives up to it’s name! Not only does it make a perfect waffle EVERY SINGLE TIME, it’s also mess free! I don’t know how they do it! I think the bottom plate of the grill may be a bit deeper, and there is also a “moat” around the outer edge of the waffle maker for extra batter to spill into, where the excess batter cooks into waffle bits that can easily be brushed away. You can also set the “doneness” of your waffle and the waffle maker beeps to let you know that your waffle is done! Genius! A waffle maker that makes waffles that even I can’t screw up!
What I do know is that the Breville No Mess Waffle Maker has this mama making waffles, and my kiddos couldn’t be happier. They’re also over the moon about my new waffle recipe, and if it’s approved by them and approved by me, that means you’re going to love it too!
