Rainbow Waffles To Brighten Up Your Dreary Day


Rainbow Waffles

Rainbow Waffles



I cannot tell a lie I am a fan of rainbow colored almost anything! Meal ideas can be difficult for us busy people during the week. You can’t always cook new different things. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of color to add a some of pizazz to old recipes. I am also not above including edible glitter or some dust to these bad boys. I found this idea on tablespoon.com and I had to share it because rainbow waffles are something the world should have been doing long ago! I bet waffle maker sales will sky rocket now!



2 cups organic pancake mix
2 eggs
1 cup organic skim or low-fat milk (non-dairy substitutes are fine too)
organic food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
whipped cream (for “clouds if you want them)
Lucky Charms (for the “treasure but not a necessity)



1. In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick, eggs and milk until smooth.

2. Divide the batter into six portions, around 1/3 cup each, giving a little extra to the bowls for the red and orange colors.

3. Use gel food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) to color each bowl of batter to your desired vibrancy. Whisk in food coloring until evenly blended.

4.Transfer each color of batter to its own piping bag and cut off the tips (careful not to spill the batter). You can use a spoon for each color if you dont have piping bags, just be very careful.

5. Carefully pour each color into a heated circle waffle maker to make your “rainbow”, starting with red, then orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.

6. Remove, and repeat with remaining batter. Cut each waffle in half.

7. Serve with whipped cream for “clouds” and Lucky Charms as the “treasure” at the end of the rainbow you can also serve it a bowl of fruit or any desired cereal.

The Only Acceptable Use I Have For A Rake





I am not generally a fan of yard work. I don’t mind keeping up the garden or starting it but the hard raking and digging isn’t always my cup of tea. I especially despise rakes! We are not friends and more often than not I hurt myself or someone else when using one. I found this amazing idea for old rakes at WebEcoist.com!
I have a ton of jewelry I’ve acquired/made over the years and although I have a huge jewelry chest that is quite well organized you can always use more organization, I feel. The image above displays perfectly and simply how an old rake can be quickly transitioned into a jewelry organizer, however I would go one step further and instead of using just a string for your earrings (some earrings may not stay on well) I would say find old mesh or tulle you have around the house. Cut it to fit the area of the rake and either clue or tie it to the rake. This way you can fit more earrings and keep them attached more securely. I cannot wait to get home and take apart all of the rakes we have at home for this exact purpose….maybe it will get me out of yard work this year!!
