Homemade Belgian Waffles – Fluffy Consistency

I’m calling these homemade Belgian waffles ‘mock buttermilk’ waffles because the goat milk and goat yoghurt bring the tangy flavour that mimics buttermilk. There is no actual buttermilk in these waffles.

You’ll find the texture reminiscent of a pancake; light and billowy. They practically melt in your mouth, which is why these are Hubs’ favourite waffle variation by far! If you substitute the regular flour for a gluten free one, this recipe makes awesome gluten free waffles too (that’s how I make them for Hubs)!

Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls – Gluten Free!

Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls is a recipe that’s near and dear to my heart. I grew up watching my grandmother make chicken soup every week but sadly I didn’t attempt to make it myself until long after she was gone. What I wouldn’t give now to ask her a few questions about all her ‘recipes’! The fact is though, my grandmother never wrote down a recipe; she cooked by intuition; a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
