I’m not about to tell you these waffles will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island. Or warm you up on a cold morning.


Tropical Island = warm, vacation, toes in some sand, sun on your face.

Yes, I live in Texas. I know it’s warmer here than other parts of the country. But it is not warm yet. Warm = 90*.

Now that we’ve established that. These waffles are what I imagine you might eat should you find yourself on a warm tropical island.

Coconut Waffles

1 and 1/4 cup AP flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 T granulated sugar
1 T baking powder
Heavy pinch kosher salt

1 can coconut milk
3 eggs
3 T melted butter
3 T melted coconut oil

3/4 to 1 cup coconut flakes

mix dry
mix wet

fold in coconut flakes

Top with toasted coconut & tropical fruits.

Where did my time off go?

oh, yeah I spent a lot of time with this guy.


Off Thursday. Off Friday. Off Saturday.

Back to work today for a short 7 hour day. 7 hours at work seemed so short after working 10-14 hours each day last week.

The past week has been full of carbs, carbs and more carbs.

Coconut cake. Coconut Pumpkin bread. Coconut pie. Pumpkin pie. Sweet potatoes. Mashed potatoes. Sweet potato orange cups. Rolls. Bread. Cookies.

And then Today at work the boss said “Do you want pizza?”

Ugh… not really. But Pizza I got, and came home with the leftovers.


I need a salad.

I big bowl of everything green.
