Save Money With Waffle Pizzas!

This is a favorite kid's meal at my house, and it is so easy and inexpensive to make I love it too! You can make waffle pizzas with frozen waffles or homemade waffles, some tomato slices, cheese and olives.

Just cook the waffle as you would normally, then line a broiler rack with foil.

Next, arrange the waffles on the foil and add sliced tomato, some mozzarella cheese and black olives, sliced. Sprikle lightly with seasonings such as basil, oregano and pepper.

Cook the waffle pizzas under the broiler for about 3 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy the smiles you get!

Homemade Waffle Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, separated
1 1/4 cups milk
2 Tbs. melted butter

Preheat waffle iron.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt in bowl.
Make a well in center and add the egg yolk and milk
Mix ingredients, then stir in butter
Finally, whisk egg white in a separate bowl, then add to flour mixture

Pour into waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes with lid closed until waffles are light brown.

Makes about 12 waffles.

I would have never thought to make something like this with waffles. Now you got me curious and I am going to have to try it :)

Hi Stacie!

My kids do love these. I find that big square shaped waffles usually work best, and using fresh slices of cherry tomatoes and slices of mozzarella cheese as opposed to tomato or spaghetti sauces work best!

Hope you and your family enjoy!
I've never tried that. English muffins, bagels, tortillas yep, but waffles? What a great idea :)

I never thought about waffle pizzas. We like to buy the cheapest store bought pizza and dress it up with good ingredients at home.

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…
