Have y’all seen those commercials in which a family looses their internet service and are besides themselves?

They aimlessly thumb through the yellow pages hoping to find a restaurant review; they spy on their neighbors to stay entertained; and even resort to talking to the family cat – and answering back for it!

Every time my daughter and I have happened on those commercials, we have had a good guffaw – at least, that was until it happened to us.

But, it wasn’t just our internet – it was our power!

In the last week, power outages (yes, outages, as in more than once) have been happening on the regular here in our neck of the woods of North-ish Georgia.

And, we are those oddballs that sit around trying to read in candle light only to give up on it and spy through our windows to see who’s coming and going, which turns into a long winded back and forth conversation with our dogs! Gosh, if our dogs could speak, they’d probably write a book about living with the Charles Chicks!

Speaking of things happening on the regular…

I cannot seem to walk away from waffles…

Whether I am making them from scratch or bringing frozen ones home and using them in new ways, waffles have my heart!

Recently (on a non-power-outage night), when my daughter and I were at our local Walmart, we happened to see that an old favorite of ours, Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Whole wheat waffles (in the Breakfast aisle in the Frozen Foods section) had had a make-over!

Since we had had dinner already (for us the best way to grocery shop is on a full belly), I opted to make us some Fruity Waffle Cups with Vanilla Cardamom Coconut Cream for dessert using Kellogg’s® Eggo® Waffles. I got them super soft by zapping them in the microwave for 30 seconds and then fitted them into a muffin pan and baked them for about 15 minutes to get them crispy.

After those waffle cups had cooled down, I filled them with some cardamom and vanilla spiked whipped coconut cream and a plethora of fruits like mangoes, kiwi, raspberries, blueberries and blackberriesSince we had had dinner already (for us the best way to grocery shop is on a full belly), I opted to make us some Fruity Waffle Cups with Vanilla Cardamom Coconut Cream for dessert using Kellogg’s® Eggo® Waffles.

By the way, have you ever had whipped coconut cream? If you haven’t, it’s definitely worth a try. And it’s super easy to make – all you need is a can of coconut cream (not coconut milk though the full fat one will work too but the cream works best) any spice and sweetener of your choice, and an electric mixer. Not only is it delicious in these Fruity Waffle Cups, but it goes well with your favorite Waffles!

  1. These fruity waffle cups are so clever Shashi – love hearing Eggo waffles have no artificial colors and flavors. Wonderful! What a beautiful use for them too. I would love these for breakfast or dessert. Sorry to hear about your power outages. I would like to see you girls chatting with the pups. We have also had power outages but from wind. Lots of wind is knocking down trees and power lines. The weather has been so unpredictable. Today it is supposed to be in the 60’s and then this weekend, just in time for Jonathan to come home on spring break from Bham, it will be back down to frigid temps in the teens. Welcome to New England. The only thing predictable about the weather is the unpredictability. Ha ha. Looking forward to SPRING!!! Have a beautiful week. XOXO

  2. Power outages are the worst. Particularly if you have a full freezer, and the outage lasts long enough that everything thaws. 🙁 Anyway, who doesn’t like waffles? Neat idea to use them as the base for this terrific dish. Thanks!

  3. Oh, these waffle cups look very cute – I like this idea, Shashi! Very good way to utilize (some) of those packages you bought (Wait, and you even weren’t hungry. I’m afraid to imagine what would have happened if you were haha) 🙂 Besides, there’s cardamom in here so I’m completely hooked:) And I’ve never tried coconut cream, and it sounds amazing. I’ve got to try it too.

  4. What a fun idea to turn waffles into cups! I love that! And then adding in the coconut cream and fresh fruit? This just reminds me that spring is around the corner. This would be perfect for a spring brunch…or spring dessert…or spring snack…or, well, spring anything. 🙂 I’ll have to grab some Eggos and fruit on my next Walmart trip!

    Funny that you mention power outages. We just lost our power last week for like 4-5 hours, and it was the first time that had happened in years. Kinda hard to work from home when the power is out. Fortunately, it was daytime so it wasn’t dark, but still. You don’t realize how many things in your house use electricity until you lose power! Hopefully things are settling down there in the north(ish) Georgia woods. Happy Thursday to the Charles Chicks (love that nickname)!
