CSN Stores Product Review - Waffle Maker

Thanks to the fabulous people at CSN Stores, I have a new waffle maker!  Not just any waffle maker, mind you, a Belgian Waffle Maker.  Oooooh!  Aaaaah!
  Cuisinart - WAF-100 - 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker
I travel a lot for work and most of the hotels that I stay at have Belgian waffles at breakfast.  In Texas, they even have waffle makers in the shape of Texas!  It's true.  Anyways, I enjoy the waffles when I travel, but then when I return home, I'm sadly without any waffles...until now! 

This Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Maker is wonderful!  It makes four 1-inch deep Belgian waffles and has a five setting browning control, so I never have to worry about how long to cook my waffles.  Plus, there is an audible alert for when it is heated up and when the waffles are ready to eat.  It is just so easy to use! 
The only issue that I’m having with it is that I don’t know how much batter to use (so really that is user error not a complaint about the product).  I’m worried about it leaking out the sides if I put too much, so I’ve ended up with round waffles. Oh well, I’ll figure it out eventually and even though they may not look normal, they sure do taste good!
Thanks again, CSN Stores for letting me do this product review!  My weekend breakfasts will now be more enjoyable.

Hello? Anyone Home?

Hello there!  Just in case you've forgotten me, I'm Sara, this is my blog, and yes, I am still alive.


(Please don’t mind my hair, it was very windy outside today!)

Over the past month and a half that I've been absent, I've been rather busy, so my excuse is totally legit…I haven’t just been lazy about blogging.  Well, ok, maybe I have been a little lazy, but for the most part I’ve been in busy.  Anyway, since I’ve last blogged:

  1. It snowed!  That’s right for the 2nd time in 2011, Prescott, AZ got snow.  It was absolutely terrible!  I live in Arizona for a reason and snow is not one of them!


2.  Four of my past five weekends were spent in Reno, Hawaii, San Diego, Valencia, Ontario, Orange County and back to San Diego all for work.  I barely saw Jeremy and Diesel.  In fact, it's quite possible that they temporarily forgot what I looked like.  But oh yea, Hawaii was awesome.

3.  Jeremy has been busy with physical therapy with his knee and he's on his way to recovery.  He’s actually a bit ahead of schedule and is working out hard.


4.  Diesel took Obedience Class and contrary to popular belief…he passed!!  Yay!  Though we did get banished from one class...yea, let’s not talk about that one.


Yea, good boy, Diesel…chew on your certificate.

That’s about all that’s new and exciting, but do stay tuned!  I’ve got some new books to review and my CSN Stores product review will be posted soon!
