Cinnamon Nutmeg Whole Wheat Waffles

Its a snowy bright day here in Southwest Ohio, after one snowstorm we got 3 more inches of the white stuff last nite. So I wanted to make something warm and fuzzy for breakfast so came these waffles. 
I am trying to continue with trying, and I admit trying to just use whole wheat flour.  It is hard but I am making progress.

Cinnamon Nutmeg Whole Wheat Waffles

Makes 6 waffles (In my waffle iron)

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour ( I used white whole wheat )
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups milk (I used skim )

Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugar together in a large bowl. 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla, egg, milk and vegetable oil.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, stirring until just combined. 

Cook the waffles as your machine tells you to do.

Don't panic when you think the batter is too thin, trust me it works !!

Here it is all brown and cinnamony and nutmegy goodness.
They were so good I made a batch for the freezer, while the iron was hot and ready to go !!
So much better and cheaper than the store !!
Hope you enjoy !!

Chocolate Rolo Cookies, Made with a Cakemix !!!!

Well its Christmas Cookie time here, time to try out some new recipes.  If I can get help from a cake mix I take it !! I made Andes Mint Cookies last year and they were a hit, so I decided to test out these Chocolate Rolo Cookies.
This seems to be the standard recipe floating about out in cyber space so I will share it.
1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
 about 30 Rolo candies UNWRAPPED
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together the cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil.  Using a tablespoon measure scoop out a ball of dough.  Slightly flatten the dough in your hand and wrap a Rolo candy in the center.  Roll the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and place on wire racks to cool. Makes about 30 cookies.

There you have it ooie gooey carmel and chocolate love.
Who wouldn't like to get these on a tray of homemade cookies for the holidays !!!
Hope you try them !!
Happy Holidays !!!
