Pumpkin Waffles National Maple Syrup Day

This past weekend, my daughter, Leigh, wanted to make something a little bit different for breakfast. She found this recipe for Pumpkin Waffles (which I tweaked slightly) from Cooking Light. This is a great recipe for Christmas morning, and it is also idea for today which is National Maple Syrup Day! Enjoy and happy Tuesday!

Recipe Testing and Judging: Cheddar Waffles with Applewood Bacon Butter


Okay, so no recipe today. Sorry! I am on a busy, tight work deadline recipe testing and judging for Cheesechampionsonline.com recipe contest for Safeway Cheese USA. The winner receives a “5-Day/5-Night Culinary Boot Camp” at The Culinary Institute. It’s an awesome project, shopping, recipe testing, evaluating and photographing some incredible entries that are as creative as delicious. I made these Cheddar Waffles with Applewood Bacon Butter this morning. Yesterday it was Apple Pepperjack Cornbread with Spicy Maple Glaze (yum!). Tonight it’s Crispy Fig & Prosciutto Pizza with Feta and Walnuts. I will let you know the winning recipe when I’m done.

Pecan Waffles


For breakfast this weekend, I am making Pecan Waffles. My daughter, Leigh, is away at camp, and I miss her so much! She is the one in the family always wanting to make waffles. She pulls out the waffle iron and makes the batter on her own (she even made them on live television). I don’t always use the powdered sugar and butter, but maple syrup is almost all you need with this delicious recipe (and Leigh wouldn’t have it any other way). 

Mother’s Day Brunch Idea: Organic Blueberry Waffle Pancakes


This is what I want Mother’s Day morning for breakfast. Who wouldn’t? I found this great, new, cool pan by Nordicware (see below) that is so fun and simple to use. Simply make your favorite pancake batter and spoon 2 tablespoons into each silver dollar indention, and that’s it. I love this Low-Fat Organic Pancake Waffle recipe, but if I’m in a rush, I highly recommend Whole Food’s Organic Buttermilk Pancake Mix. These are awesome, and they are as good as they look!
