An easy and quick waffle recipe, sure to please everyone! I try and make batches to freeze; 20 will fit into a large ziplock (of the size that my waffle maker does them- yours may be different).


2 eggs
3/4 cup of milk
2 tbsp oil
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt


In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until thick, add milk and oil. Add the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the center of the hot waffle plate. Cook following directions of your waffle iron. Yields 6 waffles on my iron.

Mosaic Dip

This is a Moxie's restaurant copycat recipe. It is SO good!! Hubby and I are both huge fans of this dip and order it whenever we have a date at Moxie's, so we decided to try making it at home!

The Shopping List:
1 tomato, chopped up (or a half a container cherry tomatoes)
2 garlic cloves, crushed (I use jarred)
1/4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups mushrooms, finely chopped
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup goat cheese (or a bit more if you LOVE it the way we do!)

Mix the tomatoes, garlic, onion and pinch of salt in a small baking dish (8x8 or a bit smaller). Make sure you finely chop each ingredient. That's your first layer. Set aside.

Add the olive oil to a frying pan and cook mushrooms about 5-10 minutes or until tender. Add the soy sauce. Turn off your stove and add the cream cheese.

Spread the mushroom mixture on top of the tomato mixture. Top with the goat cheese (crumble on top)

Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for about 15 minute. Remove and serve with warm naan bread or pita.

Makes 2-4 servings
