Great Easy Waffles

Cooking Mom 4

"This recipe has been handed down in my family and has become a favorite. If you have leftover waffles, they are great to freeze and then toast at a later time. I usually make a double recipe and then have plenty of leftovers for the kids to have for breakfast before school."
