Lemon Frosted Waffle Cookies

I wanted to make something special for a little family get-together that my parents were having for July 4th, so I came up with this:

Stacey's Lemon Waffle Cookie Ingredients
1/2 c unsalted butter, organic (1 stick)
1/4 c granulated sugar, organic
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp lemon juice
2 eggs, organic
1c unbleached white flour, organic
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbs whole milk, organic
1/4c turbinado sugar, organic

Stacey's Lemon Vanilla Frosting Ingredients
2 tbs unsalted butter, organic
1 cup powdered sugar (maybe more)
1 tbs whole milk, organic
1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tbs lemon juice + citric acid powder
Pinch salt

For the waffles:
Melt the butter until soft.  Mix with the granulated sugar, sea salt, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla.  Then mix in the flour and baking powder.  Once combined, add the milk.  Mixture should be thick.  Begin heating the waffle iron.  I'm pretty sure I have an older version of this one, which I LOVE, but mine came from Costco.  Put the waffle batter in the fridge while you wait for the iron to heat.

Once hot, mix the turbinado sugar into the batter.  Using a scooper, spoon about 2-3 tbs of batter into each quarter, close the lid and rotate.  You can also make big giant cookies if you want, but I liked small ones.  I cooked mine on heat setting 4, for 2 minutes each.

Remove cookies from waffle iron.  I like to use rubber ended tongs.  Once cool, you can frost them, spreading a little frosting in each hole.

For the frosting:
Melt the butter.  Mix in the powdered sugar and salt.  It should be like a paste.  Then add the lemon juice and mix. Then mix in the milk and vanilla bean paste.  If it tastes like it needs more acidity, add some citric acid powder, a tiny bit at a time, like 1/8 tsp, since it's pretty powerful.  Add more powdered sugar or milk to make the consistency you prefer.  I like for it to be about the consistency of whipped cream cheese.

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

White Chocolate Love Bars

More hearts for my Valentine's Day assortment... Stacey's White Chocolate Love Bars Ingredients : 16 oz Chocolates El Rey White Chocolate Discos 64% Guittard Dark Chocolate couverture 1 oz bar mold I'm using a 16 cavity bar mold that has one ounce bars.  I think I got mine from Tomric.com ( candy bar mold ). First I tempered some dark chocolate for the decorations. I use the seeding method and a microwave to temper my chocolate.  I put my couverture in a pyrex bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with my favorite rubber spatula (the 1 piece ones are the best), until it's about 100F, using my trusty  temperature gun .  Then I add my seeding chocolate and stir until it reaches 90F, removing the seed chocolate afterward. The other thing about tempering chocolate is that you can't really make only one or two ounces - you need to do at least 4-5 ounces or it won't come out right.  So, I made these while I was making something else.  But, yo

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

My son (currently 2 years old) loves pancakes.  Protein, not so much.  I tried to get a bit more protein in his carbs. Ingredients  (organic, if possible) 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 eggs 1 cup cottage cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tbs milk butter, oil or oil spray Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and then fold into dry ingredients mixing as little as possible (keeps the pancakes tender). Heat a pan and grease with butter. My son likes small pancakes (so I use about 1-2 teaspoons at a time), but you can make full size pancakes if you wish. It usually takes a minute or two before you can turn them over, or you can look for small bubbles at the edges of the pancakes before flipping. Remove when golden brown. If you want to substitute white flour, you'll have to add more flour (maybe 3-4 extra tablespoons) unless you like thin pancakes. Also, I usually make a big batch o
