Raspberry Chocolate White Chocolate Whole Wheat Waffles

I’m still playing a bit of catch-up here with blog posts, so these waffles are from a few weeks back, but I can still remember how delicious they were! My Weekend Boyfriend (also more commonly known as Kevin – he finally has a name!) was here, and we wanted something yummy for breakfast but didn’t want to go out. Towards the end of last summer, I picked a quart of raspberries from my Grandfather’s garden and froze them, so I still had some of those left over, and decided to use those in the waffles. Kevin, notorious for his outrageous sweet tooth, requested chocolate in the waffles too, so chocolate it was! We added white and dark chocolate chips both in the batter and on top, and made a simple butter maple syrup that we drizzled over them — SO GOOD! The recipe I used was for fluffy whole wheat waffles — a little bit of fiber and health to offset the copious amounts of butter and sugar we also used. As much as we love the occasional sugary treat, it is so important to enjoy high sugar foods in moderation. After all, no one wants to develop oral health problems like tooth decay or gum disease as a result of overindulging. Correspondingly, it is also vital that you arrange a checkup with a Dentist in Valencia or a dentist in your area at least once every six months. Besides, looking after your teeth is essential if you want to be able to enjoy delicious foods like these waffles.


Banana Belgian Waffles Topped Two Ways

This past weekend, I decided it was time to bust out the waffle maker again. It’s such a wonderful appliance — I mean, I can’t think of another machine that turns out perfectly cooked and oh-so-delicious breakfast treats in 2.5 minutes. Can you? So Sunday morning, after a run and some ridiculously awful tennis with AW, we whipped up some banana waffles and bacon (bacon is AW’s domain, I prefer to leave the room when it’s cooking so I don’t spend the rest of the day smelling like cured meat). I had the idea to top the waffles with a couple of different flavor combos, that ended up both being really delicious. (more…)
