My new best friend...the Oster Waffle Maker

A couple of months ago I got my first hand look and taste of homemade waffles and ever since then I've been lusting after my very own waffle maker. I've looked around but since I'm on a spending freeze this year I convinced myself I didn't need to buy another small appliance. However, this weekend, we went to Target in Buffalo and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this Oster waffle maker for only US$20!! Cheap!! I HAD to buy it!

I used it the very next day and was so happy when my waffles came out perfectly. I used the Krusteux Buttermilk Pancake Mix from Costco and followed the instructions for waffles. They were crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. They were just as good as my friend's homemade waffle batter.

Isn't it so cute?

My first attempt at homemade waffles.
Today I tried the Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Pancake Mix and they turned out even light and fluffy. After trying my friend's homemade waffles and two mixes, I think I will stick to the ease and convenience of the store bought mixes.


  1. When you have the opportunity you might want to give yeasted waffles a try. Your waffles look gorgeous.

  2. WELL HI THERE STRANGER! It seems utterly ridiculous that I haven't been around! Forgive me! :) Your post makes me want to cheat on my diet. lol

    awesome waffles!! :)

  3. It's would be handy if i have got one waffle maker like your at home too..can make something different rather than pancake most of the time..
