|I wish I had a better picture of these but I was about to have a husband/toddler mutiny if I didn't get breakfast on the table this particular morning.|
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 t baking soda
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/4 t salt
- 2 T pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup shredded carrot (about one medium carrot)
- 1/3 cup coconut milk (plain unsweetened, or vanilla sweetened depending on what I have on hand)
- 1 T vegetable oil
- 1 t vanilla extract
Combine all your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add shredded carrot to dry ingredients. Add all wet ingredients to dry and stir to combine.
Pre-heat your waffle iron and grease very well with oil of choice. Once your waffle iron is hot add half your batter into the middle, close the lid, and (if you have an iron like me) wait for the little light to change from red to green signaling your waffle is done. Re-grease your iron before pouring second half of the batter in.
I never add anything to these waffles as they have a bit of sweetness and a lot of flavor on their own but feel free to top them however you like!
|See...sometimes they turn out like this.|
|Orrrrr like this...sorry for the blur. But seriously, still DELICIOUS.|

- The House 6 Creations End of Summer Sale is still going on. I decided the sale will officially end at midnight, pacific, on October 31, 2014. At which time, any un-sold items will return to their original prices.
- I've been able to expand the selection of items available through the Etsy store. As time goes on I will probably phase out selling things directly through Facebook and everything will be posted on Etsy. Facebook will still be the best way to stay up to date on what's going on with the store as far as new items, sales, etc. So, make sure you "like" House 6 Creations on Facebook as well as on Etsy.
- There are now several ready made changing pad covers available through Etsy.
- Large and small essential oil zippered pouches.
- I sold several of the carseat canopies I had available but there are still 2 and I have more in the sewing que.
- Soon there will be more wet bags ready for purchase but I love this blue chevron despite the fact that chevron is quite possibly the biggest pain in the but to work with.
- Baby/toddler infinity scarves make great gifts and more are coming!
- Creating custom items for customers is still one of my favorite things so don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for something in particular or if you see an item you like but want it in a different fabric. I will do my best to create something just how you want it!
Last weekend I made a big fabric shopping trip and I'm only about 1/3 of the way through all the fabric I bought to make things out of. I'm cutting, sewing, taking pictures, and posting it all as fast as toddler nap time will allow.
|Soooo didn't manage to take a picture of the raspberry until we were half way through a jar. Whoopsie|
|Strawberry ready for the water bath!|
|See...just a little too smooth and blended. Lesson learned for next time.|
|Fact: I have a jam problem. Well, it's really only a problem if we run out.|

- my foundation. It's the foundation for all things dance as far as I'm concerned.
- peace of mind. During a class no matter how hard a combination is or how much I'm sucking because I haven't been in a class in years my mind is totally clear. It's the only time I am able to completely shut out the rest of my life. I forgot it was like this and it's incredible.
- work. HARD work.
- ballet. Non-dancers may not understand that but there's nothing quite like a good ballet class. There's nothing that can get you back in "ballet shape" other than, you guessed it, ballet.
- a part of me. No matter how beat up my body is I will always have the desire take a class and work as hard as I can to dance to the best of my ability on that day.
