Perfect Crispy Soft Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe (With Coffee Syrup!)

You guys it's been forever since I've blogged. And the first time I post in almost a month it's ANOTHER recipe post. I don't feel bad though. 
I mean, I should feel bad but I don't. Maybe I feel bad that I don't feel bad? Whatever!

Dudes, I love you, which is why I'm sharing this recipe with you before outfits, or DIY's or whatever. It's that good. I've spent almost a year perfecting it and you seriously, really, actually can't tell these waffles are gluten-free. 

This recipe needs to be out in the world. 

Plus, can we talk to a second about coffee syrup? For the love of all that is holy, go hit up Sweet & Cute and buy some of this stuff. If you love coffee even a quarter as much as I do you'll be hooked. And no, she's totally not paying me to say this you guys, it's that good. 

Tina, the owner, says that Sweet & Cute is a a small female-owned biz that uses all natural ingredients to crate delicious treats. She also strives to minimize her impact on the environment with glass bottles, eco-friendly packaging and local ingredients wherever possible. 

So like, you can buy it and feel good about buying from a small business. Awesomesauce.

Perfect Crispy Soft Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe (With Coffee Syrup!)

3.5 cups all purpose gluten-free baking flour mix (I use Bob's Red Mill 1:1 gluten-free flour)
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar or sweetener
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups of milk
8 eggs (I know woah right? You use a metric ton of eggs cooking gluten-free don't freak!)
3 tsp vanilla

Oh, and you'll want to have some Sweet & Cute Coffee Syrup

1. Heat up your waffle iron and grease it with a little buttah. I mean it, real butter for cooking with can't be beat. Yeah it's a little less healthy but dude, when you start noticing the flavors of the oil you use to cook with you'll see what I mean!

...I should probably get off my buttery high horse and give you the rest of the recipe though.

2. Mix your ingredients, making sure that everything is super, super well mixed. 

3. Cook each waffle for a bout three minutes and then serve with coffee syrup. 

4. Stuff in face like a crazed madwoman.

5. Thank me. 

And seriously you guys don't skip the coffee syrup. This changed my game in terms of breakfast foods. Now I can have coffee flavored things with my coffee. Mic drop.

Gluten-Free Sweet Cream Cheese Danish Recipe

That's right.


You heard me.

I made four different versions of this amazing breakfast treat and all four were glorious. Today I'm going to give you the basic recipe for these gluten-free danishes and then some ideas on how to customize them for your family. 

Gluten-Free Danish Recipe (OMG!)

For the crust:
2 eggs
2 Tbsp oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 package of Bob's Red Mill Pizza Crust Mix.
For the cream cheese filling:
1 package of cream cheese
2 Tbsp of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the toppings:
fruit of your choice

How to make them, because this is what you really want to know!

1. Prepare the pizza dough as directed on the package, but add vanilla extract and cinnamon. While it rises, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and cover your baking sheet with parchment paper.

You can totally also just grease your pan, but I've found that with gluten-free baking parchment paper works wonders.

2. Separate your dough into six balls (notice one is missing in the pictures? That's because I ate it before the pictures were taken! #shameless). Mold each ball into a small pizza-crust-like circle.

Gently press the centers so that there's enough of an indent to make sure your toppings don't escape when they get warm.

3. In a mixing bowl, beat your cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until smooth. Fill the centers of your crusts with the cream cheese.

4. Now here comes the part where you get crazy and choose your fruit. I topped these with raspberries, blackberries, chopped pineapple and apples. Just top your cream cheese filled crusts with whatever combo you like.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, and with as with all gluten-free pastries LET THEM SETTLE if you don't want them to crumble before your eyes. 

6. Eat them and let your taste buds rejoice.

And if you're looking for some more delicious ideas for gluten-free breakfasts, check out a few of my other recipes!

Summer Favorite: Off the Shoulder Tops

Happy Monday! Can you see how stupid excited I am that summer is almost heeeeeeeeeeeere you guys! 

Who else is looking forward to warm Summer nights relaxing on the porch with a glass of wine? 

I'm in love this summer with off-the-shoulder tops. They're the perfect blend of sexy and sweet when combined with ruffles. (And the bare shoulders are super nice for getting rid of shoulder tan lines)

This is seriously my favorite trend of the summer.

I loved this top so much that I bought tons of similar ones this year so you'll probably be seeing them a lot around here. 

This one is from Old Navy last year, but they sell a super similar one this yearI also found an identical one from 7 for All Mankind, and I love this white one from Roxy with lace trim, or this yellow one from XOXO is calling my name like woah. That color yellow is amazing for summer!

What do you guys think about this trend, love it or hate it?

Five Minute DIY Trendy Choker Graphic T-Shirt: Make Your Own!

I've been seeing these cute choker tees everywhere this spring. My favorite was probably this one from American Eagle ("ain't no thing" stole my heart with that color pink)

It's a cute and weird combo of a turtleneck, halter top and necklace. Plus, it skirts the line between being sexy and still not showing everything off.

You're lookin' at my DIY version of a choker t-shirt! (And the back end of my friend's vintage Impala)

Fun face about me: I LOATHE crew neck t-shirts. I hate hate hate feeling like there's something tight around my neck. Which is fine because usually that neckline makes me look like a linebacker anyways. But it does mean I can't buy a lot of the really cute slogan and graphic tees out there.

This phases of the moon tee from Target was the perfect shirt to test this DIY on! I love the graphic and the shirt fit perfectly. And I'm stoked with how well it turned out! 

Want to make your own? Here's what you'll need:

Fold your shirt down the center, and lay flat. Cut starting at your center fold and cut up to the very edge of the collar. 

Fold out your shirt again and make sure it's even! Then carefully cut around the edge of the collar.

Congrats! You're done, and now you have your own custom choker tee!

Boom! Now that you've made your choker t-shirt go rock it in real life. And wasn't it so easy?

I was going to put on a super awesome outfit but ended up just shooting in leggings and tennis shoes because that's what I had on. And you know what? It totally works! This tee is now in my regular rotation I am loving it!

I scored this purse, wallet and tablet sleeve for $23 for all 3. That's right. Under $25 for THREE Coach pieces, courtesy of the Southern Idaho Goodwill, one of my fav places to shop.

So, what did you all find this week?

4 Pieces You Need to Transition Your Wardrobe to Spring and a GIVEAWAY with JORD watches!

This Spring in Idaho has been crazy weather wise.

Idaho is famous for it's "Hold my beer, I can do this" attitude towards the challenge of fitting all four seasons into a single day, and spring is always a time I struggle to figure out what the heck I'll be wearing for the next 12 hours.

Today I'm sharing my favs with you guys! And as a bonus because you all are so awesome, I'm teaming up with JORD watches to give away a hefty gift card to one lucky reader!

(Head's up: If you're in this for the gift card first scroll to the bottom and then come back and read my tips)

1. Crocheted cardigan.

This is a must this spring season for me. It's still freaking cold here sometimes and I need something to throw on over my boring tank tops to make it look like I tried.

2. Floppy hat.

I didn't think I'd still be wearing my floppy hat after this winter, but boy howdy was I wrong, It transitioned nicely into the spring and is the perfect piece to use when it's raining outside and I don't want to mess up my hair.

I have a black straw one I expect to be using all summer long as well.

3. Arm candy.

How. Cool. Is. This. Watch?

Jord makes some gorgeous wooden watches that are as light as air and absolutely decadent to wear. I forgot I had mine on 99% of the time because I could barely feel it!

This beauty is the Frankie 35 series in in Dark Sandlewood and Mint. It comes in a multitude of other colors too, but if you want to just check out their line of women's watches you can do that too.

This is seriously the perfect Mother's Day gift if you're still slacking and don't know what to get the mom in your life. Trust me, she'll love it.

4. Flared jeans.

I'm seeing flared jeans everywhere this spring and I'm so glad this trend is back.

For real, I have a huge butt, and the flared jeans trend is my saving grace for making it look smile while I still look chic. This pair is from the Gap (thrifted of course!) but you can find these in almost any store for Spring 2017.

So now you're just waiting for the giveaway, right? Like, Jessica GIMMIE MY CHANCE TO WIN! I hear you.

I'm teaming up with JORD Watches to give one lucky reader a $100 gift card to their online store. But what's better is that EVERY SINGLE PERSON who enters gets their own $25 gift card, just for taking the time to enter the giveaway (and being a reader of Domestic Bliss Squared, thanks guys!)

*Giveaway ends on Mother's Day (5.14.17)*
