Waffles are a mainstay in our home. We love them. I grew up with waffles. The smell brings back memories of country music and Saturday mornings. My mother made great waffles! I used her recipe for years and I have to say old waffle irons did a better job at baking the waffles. I love crispy waffles, while my wife loves them tender and soft. Over the years I have learned some great tricks to making waffles and our family eats them all the time. I gave up my mothers recipe, which used for it's core ingredients white flour, crisco, and whipped eggs whites. I have no problem with the eggs, but the white flour and crisco had to go. The crisco I am sure gave them a wonderful texture, but I have no problem with that now.

There's no substitution for great Barbecue Sauce! That's a lesson I learned quickly while living in Texas a few years back.
Perhaps one of the greatest states for Barbecue, I came to realize that just as important as the meat, smoke, and wood, the right Barbecue sauce can make all the difference. That "right sauce" can also vary from place to place, and even person the person.

Some things come along unexpectedly in life. Things that just happen, out of the blue. We can't simply try to forget the problem and hope that takes care of it. We can all come up with excuses as to why we can't store food. Some honestly just want to do things their own way and not follow the advice of anyone who actually has knowledge and experience.

One of the most important parts of Food Storage is rotation. While many of us are focused on long term events when we purchase our food storage supplies, we always seem to forget the importance of constantly rotating our current stash in to our everyday cooking and baking.
