Cinnamon Roll Waffles

I saw this on Pinterest a long time ago and this morning, I really wanted some! Luckily I bought a couple of the cinnamon roll (tubes) a couple of weeks ago. It's so easy, there's really no need for instructions! I used 2 rolls (may have been too much for the 4 of us lol)

After I opened the rolls, I broke it apart and got 8 pieces. 
Perfect! I have a four section waffle maker. 

I spread butter on one side and waited to spread butter on the opposite side until I was ready to throw it on the waffle iron. 

It really takes less than 2 minutes. I burnt some at first because I waited for my iron's "ready" light indicator. When I only put it in for about 1 minute, it was perfect!

The rolls came with icing... I squeezed some after removing it off the iron. 

It was soOoOOo good! The best part was how easy it was!

Cherry Tomato Sauce

I grew up eating this. I'm not sure what it's called so I will just call it "Cherry Tomato Sauce" since it's mainly cherry tomatoes cooked down to a thick sauce with herbs & chili peppers. I like to eat it with pork chops (or any meat!).

My mom was nice enough to come by with cherry tomatoes from her garden and showed me how to make it. I'm a visual person, plus her instructions are usually frustrating to me (add a little bit of salt, cook until it's ready...) HOW DO I KNOW ITS READY?!?!? Haha


Cherry tomatoes (about a one gallon zip lock bag)
Cilantro (about a quarter cup) 
Mint leaves (about 3-4)
1/2 - 1 tbsp fried garlic
1-3 Fresh chili peppers (optional but mandatory for me)
1 tsp chicken flavor bouillon powder
Salt to taste 


Slice tomatoes 
Cook on high for about 10 mins

Add minced cilantro, mint, peppers, fried garlic, chicken bouillon & salt

Remove from heat. 

Add additional herbs to taste. 

I actually don't add peppers because my husband doesn't eat as spicy so I add it to my own portions at dinner. I always have a stash of chili peppers in my freezer... again, from my mom.  :)

Panko Fried Zucchinis

When I saw this post, I drooled. I love everything fried and since it's a veggie, it's healthier right? Okay, just let me think that. 


2 Zucchinis
1 cup Panko crust
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
2 eggs, beaten


Heat oil in a pan on medium heat

Mix Panko and Parmesan in a bowl & set aside

Cut Zucchinis into thin slices

In batches, dip Zucchinis in flour, eggs, Panko mix and fry on both sides until golden brown. That's it.
