I've waffled before, I'll waffle again.

A few weeks ago I spotted NEW Gluten Free Bisquick on the dreaded bottom shelf of our local grocer. I'm SO glad I saw it!

Last night I made homemade belgian waffles following the recipe on the back of the box. I added 2 Tablespoons of pecan meal for some flavor and BOY oh BOY were they delicious! My family raved over them and has definitely put them on the "make these again" list!

The pecan meal made them bake a bit browner in the waffle iron but the consistency was fantastic and the flavor was delish!

The box offers recipes for pancakes, waffles and biscuits along with some side panel recipes for pizza crust, chicken and dumplings and chicken nuggets so this box would be a good one to have in the family pantry!

Again, I add my "safety tip" that you should check to see whether or not YOU can tolerate the PPB that are allowed in any foods that are produced with a GF label.

I also recently received a cook book I can't WAIT to try out, You Wont Believe it's Gluten-Free by Roben Ryberg. I always "read" my cookbooks before I try anything. With tabs in hand I mark pages of recipies that look interesting then can flip to the tabs when I'm feeling creative.

If you're anything like me, you have 6 or 7 different gluten free flours in the pantry without the slightest clue of what to do with them. In my desperate search for some sort of normalcy in baking I wound up with some I can't even pronounce! This book makes sense (and use) of them all!

I'll be sure to post recipe successes (and failures) here soon!
