Oh bummer!  I have a super cheapy from a drug store.  I think it was like $12 and it's been working fine for over 10 years.

haha I might look next payday for one. I'm sure my family is sick of having toast or pancakes for when I do a traditional hot breakfast. Waffles are soooo good.

I agree!  Waffles are far superior to pancakes!  Dh disagrees...

I know that DH would love it if I made waffles. There was one time when we were so broke a few years ago that we had to live off of pancakes for 5 days and he wouldn't touch pancakes for over a year after that. lol

I would looooove to have a ton of homemade waffles in my freezer. I don't have a waffle maker, though, and the only ones I've found that are Teflon-free are cast iron, which makes crispy waffles, not big light fluffy ones. greensad.gif I have a couple of bags of pancakes, but waffles would be soo much better!

 

And I forgot to list the most important thing I have in my freezer - cookie dough! When I make a batch of dough, I scoop it all out into individual cookie balls, then freeze it. That way you can make a few at a time without having to deal with all the effort. Except we totally eat all the frozen dough before we ever think of baking them.....so good though!

I'd love to buy a waffle iron but DH and I agreed I shouldn't have one or else I'd probably eat waffles on nearly a daily basis. lol.gif When I lived in the dorms in college, I was exposed to life with a waffle maker in the cafeteria every morning with their super delicious waffle mix... and well, you get the picture. No turning back once I have a waffle iron in my life. LOL

lol.gif I probably would too, only raw cookie dough makes me queasy later. ~no bueno~ But that is a good idea. I should totally do that, so if the kids ever randomly get a hankering for a cookie, I can throw 2 balls in the oven.

I wonder if it's the eggs? I don't usually use eggs, I use 1 Tbsp ground flax seed +3 Tbsp water for each egg. DH actually likes them better that way.

I think it is the raw egg in the dough. Thank you for the egg substitute. :)
