Awesome deal on the waffle maker! Husband has been wanting one but we really don’t have room for another appliance or the money to spend. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for a good one at yard sales. If I see a good deal I think I could find a place to store it! 🙂

How funny! I just discovered this awesome blog today and I have a lightly used waffle maker I am getting rid of. It’s a good one but I can’t use it anymore since going gluten free. Would love to send it to you if you’d like it. Email me if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org

Ann P –
Just wanted to let you know that several members of my family are gluten free and I have been gluten free off and on and you definitely don’t have to give up waffles to go gluten free. I personally find keeping my favorite foods in my life makes the gluten free diet way easier. Pamela’s and Maninis are my favorite GF mixes and I eat waffles, muffins, homemade bread, cookies, cakes, etc. Anyway, good luck!
