carrot cake and disco balls


if you follow my tweets or follow me on facebook you’d know that i made carrot cake waffles for my guests today for breakfast.

i found this recipe via this pin the other day. i’m constantly looking for  new and unique breakfast recipes and this one looked like a winner. i was right.

i did make some adjustments to the recipe. i just used my basic waffle mix recipe and just added the cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and carrots . i left out the raisins because, as in my experience, most people don’t like them. i didn’t follow the original recipe because i like my go to waffle mix recipe and there is no way i’m beating eggs whites at 5 am.

no harm done though. as you can see the results were wonderful. see all that grated carrot goodness? they tasted great!

i also adjusted the maple nut cream cheese by adding a little sugar to it. it just needed a touch more sweetness.

topped with maple syrup these waffles are a winner!

and don’t you love my new tablecloth!? i found it here.

and in completely random news i decide to participate in the #discomania virtual blogger party via decor8. you can read all about the details here. it sounded like fun and i was disappointed i missed the #stripedmania party.

so i laid on my dining room floor with some mini disco balls i had in the shoppe and snapped a self portrait.

i thought it turned out kind of nice. eventually my picture will be pinned here, but that has yet to happen. but, when you do see it, please keep repining it! my face has never been pinned before! if you’re a blogger, you can submit your picture via this flickr group.

have a great weekend everyone!!

will you be trying out this recipe and/or participating in #discomania.

    Michael – I adore the new tablecloth. It is very similar to one I bought in Mexico City at the Ciudadela. I adore your waffle photos, the setting, the plate, the lighting, and of course the syrup dripping over all that goodness. I particularly love your smile and self-portrait. You are an artist through and through.


    So so yummy looking waffles…and you’re such a cutie!
