Cinnamon Roll Waffles Cinnamon Roll Waffles I’ve had a tough time forgetting about those Cinnamon Roll Pancakes that I posted a few weeks ago. So much so that I started wondering what else I could do to replicate the Cinnamon Roll. “Why not waffles, too?” I thought. I experimented… but it was a flop. I went with a buttermilk waffle… plain, with no cinnamon filling added. I drizzled the cinnamon-sugar filling on top. I figured… why not? My ideal cinnamon roll always has cream cheese icing, so a cream cheese icing drizzle was in order too. Lots of cream cheese icing, please. I could hardly wait to take a bite… to see if this whole Cinnamon Roll Waffle thing worked out. That’s about all I could eat.

Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch If french fries and onion rings ever got married and had a baby, I think it would be something like this…a potato ring. You have a light and crispy outer coating with a soft potato and caramelized onion center…why? Because we can I guess, who knows…but it’s kind of fun, right?! My boyfriend and his friends have this thing where every super bowl they have a “Deep-Fry Fest” where, well they deep fry everything; so if you’re anything like my boyfriend you now have another “Deep Fry Fest” recipe to use! Two things I can’t stress enough is: 1) the importance of having the potatoes completely coated; no holes please, or the mashed potatoes will pour out of the holes once they hit the oil. 2) the importance of the rings being frozen solid before entering the oil…it just helps with the frying, that’s all. Finally, since ranch is pretty much good with anything it only seemed natural to pair these savory, fried treats with a quick and easy homemade ranch sauce. Directions: 1.

Avocado Hummus This avocado hummus is delicious. And I know I say that a lot, but I really rilly like this one. It’s a good one! In other related news, why are avocados so expensive? I get that they’re delicious, buttery, fatty (in a healthy way!) No but really… I like to consider myself a pretty good “ripe” fruit picker, but avocados sort of make me nervous, because sometimes they’re perfectly ripe, yet their exterior is still a little green. I sometimes put my pride on the side and I enlist the produce guy to help. This avocado hummus is exactly what it sounds like: avocado and hummus totally making out, getting married and making a child. I went the traditional hummus route. Can we also just discuss how delicious tahini is?!
