I love using the waffle maker and I was up yesterday while everyone was asleep. This is my favourite time to be creative in the kitchen, it's my other zen time. My first one happens in the afternoon when I sit down with my mega Zentime Zalad, I will post it one day. I rocks my world and not a day goes by without it.
We are big on no grains, sugar or dairy around here. Not perfect all the time but perfect is just as harmful as all out not caring!! I love re creating the things in life that my family enjoy so that they don't feel like they are missing out on anything. I have been eating healthy all of my adult life so none of the normal things even look like tempting me. But I love to see them happy so I do my best to get things right, some I win some I lose but hey, life's like that.
