yummy waffles!
 Guitar enjoying brownie/cookie samples at HEB while me and chat shop for waffles ingredients!
 Since we hadn't eaten anything yet, we made cheesy waffles with chicken tenders to start off the day!
 Chat in her cute apron she brought over "I don't want to get paulina's shirt dirty!" although.. the apron didn't cover most of it!
 toasted shredded coconut!
 the waffle recipe we used contains yeast to make it nice and airy and crispy on the outside and dense on the inside
 lukewarm milk to wake the yeast babies up!
 macerating strawberries! chat was confused when I said macerate lol
 chat taking a break to drink some sweet tea from sonic happy hour
 panda was being lazy all day
 we went to choo choo for sushi while waiting for the batter to rise
 I made another chicken and cheesy waffle for papa
 it doubled in size!
 perfect waffles!

 this one had nutella, strawberries, bananas, and cookies and cream icecream!

 this one had condensed milk, bananas, shredded coconut, and buttered pecan icecream!

so yum! we had a blast making these! :)

Coconut heaven homemade Macaroons!

I followed the recipe on joy of baking

The recipe required beating egg whites, sugar, and salt over a double boiler, which is just heating it up in a heat proof bowl over simmering water

The product is smooth and creamy

doesn't really look appetizing yet huh? lol

used an icecream scooper to make even rounds
Well I baked it for the amount of time the recipe called for, but it didn't have that classic golden gleam which true macaroons need! so I but it under a broiler and gave it a little tan :)
