Baking Tips

If you’re using frozen waffles, you’ll want them to thawed enough to where you can mold them into a taco shape, when placing the waffles on the muffin tin.

How to Defrost Frozen Waffles

You can thaw frozen waffles by placing them in the fridge overnight, or leaving them on the counter for 10-15 minutes before you need them.

To defrost the waffles quickly, you can place them in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, and adding 30 second increments until thawed to your preference.

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
