Over the weekend, one morning my husband made traditional waffles for 4 kids (had an extra one spending the night) because none of them have gluten sensitivities.
I don’t do as well with gluten as the kids do. Smelling those waffles though….made me naturally want waffles too. So I found 2 1/2 overly ripe bananas, walnuts, and used Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-to-1 flour and made the most delicious vegan and gluten-free waffles!! Only 3 ingredients! Even my son wanted a second serving!
Makes 1 waffle:
2 1/2 overly ripe bananas
1/2 cup – 3/4 cup of Bobs Red Mill gluten free 1-to-1 flour
1-2 tablespoons of lightly crushed walnuts
Mash the bananas with a fork until smooth.
Add the gluten-free flour (amount depends on how big your bananas are). The goal is to have it thicker than traditional waffle batter. Mix well
Add walnuts to taste.
Cook in your waffle maker until done. They may still be a little doughy in the center, but it’s okay because the banana has a softer consistency. You can overcook it a little, or lightly toast your waffle once it’s finished cooking in the waffle maker so you have it be firmer in the center.
When we all first arrived in Vegas, we had a checklist of things we wanted to do and places we wanted to visit.
One of the places we HAD to go to, was the Mandarin Bar up on the 23rd floor with sweeping views of the strip. Funny thing is we were fortunate enough to meet the GM of the Mandarin from another sexy city. He asked us when we were going to visit the Vegas location, and when we arrived, he surprised us with a beautiful bottle of Perrier Jouet Brut! Love meeting kind (and handsome) strangers who know how to treat women with kindness and class. Warmest thanks Greg!
Now we can’t wait to bring all our nice (and gorgeous) friends to HIS HOTEL for our annual girl’s trip next year.
Where is your next girl’s trip going to be?
When you’re in Vegas you need to go to a show – at least one. The only trouble is picking one because of all the choices.
A newer show in town that’s fun for the whole family (and it’s not easy to find truly “family friendly” shows) is at the Linq. Magician Mat Franco (you may remember him as the winner of America’s Got Talent), was awesome!! Vegas has a tawdry side so this show was a breath of fresh air!
He picked our friendly bachelorette, Rosalie, to assist with one of the tricks on stage. And afterwards we were all invited backstage to meet him, because he said we were fun in the audience and he noticed how much fun we were having while he was on stage. He was so kind, and humble and down to earth.
Fun Fact: he and his girlfriend have the sweetest, tiniest, 18 year old dog.
I forgot to have someone take photos of my cute dress, but it’s on sale right now at asos.com and it was comfortable and has built in bra cups so you can go braless and still be fully supported. 😉
What are your favorite shows in Vegas?
The girls and I went to an event hosted by my friend, Lisa Song, super entrepreneur and realtor. She held an open house for some of the top realtors from around the world at a $29 million penthouse with 360 degree views of Las Vegas in Palms Place.
Gorgeous, gorgeous property. Alcohol infused cupcakes from Sin City Cupcakes. Showgirls. Champagne. It was quite the event!
Hope you are having a fabulous day!
