I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Country Supper Waffles

This recipe is from the fabulous book, Retro Breakfast. It's full of pancake, waffle, biscuit and egg recipes that remind me of the greasy spoon diners I love so much. The recipe makes enough waffles for 4 people, but we always make it for 2, and then freeze the rest -- they reheat well in the toaster.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup melted butter, margarine, or oil
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. In separate bowl, combine egg yolks and milk until well blended.
  2. With electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Pour egg/milk mixture into flour and beat just enough to moisten.
  3. Stir in slightly cooled melted butter. Fold in egg whites, leaving little clumps of the white.
  4. Pour into waffle iron and bake to perfection!
