More Waffles...???

I love waffles....
always have.

I've posted about them several times because, to moi,
they aren't only tasty.....



they are pretty.....
worthy of many many photos.... 

aren't they so fun ! 



My mama didn't make waffles thru the week when I was a child 
but we had them almost every Saturday morning.


I won the BEST waffle iron a few years back....
and I've used it for waaay more than waffles.





My blogging buddy, RUE, loves waffles, too...
and she kindly allowed me to steal photos of her pretty waffles...


 I just LUV her waffle maker...
the design is so pretty.


Oh, Rue, this looks just like a stack of beautiful flowers...

YUM...


.....don't they look sooo good.
"Thanks, Rue."

Some of you may remember her original blog from several years ago...
MY PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY LIFE.


We like fresh strawberries with ours, too, Rue.

When you go by to see her pretty blog, you'll find out that
SHE is also pretty...looks a lot like one of my favorite actors,
VIVIAN LEIGH...
OOO...
and please tell her bj said HEY.



I think my favorite of all waffles are
PECAN WAFFLES...
One of my best friend's mom always made them for us when I spent the night.
I can still see Mrs. Reed, in her 50's apron, asking,
"how many can you eat, Jean?" I always wanted to say,"25" but
settled for 1.
xoxoxo

I didn't have enuf sense back then to ask for her recipe...
I just assumed she'd be there to make them for us
FOREVER....
*heavy sigh
She passed away years ago...
and just last year,
my friend, her daughter,
lost her fight with cancer.

OOO...
and don't be a FROZEN WAFFLE SNOB...


They are totally delicious and my freezer is NEVER without a box of them.
Have you ever warmed one and then added plain ole CREAM CHEESE...
just knocks your socks off...

Tweak it Tues.

  6. BJ, we have a waffle iron, and I drag it out now and then for a special treat. For some reason they taste better than a pancake, even though they are from the same batter! ;-)

  11. I don't even remember the last time I ate a waffle, but you're making me hungry for them! I need to track down a new waffle maker. I like them with butter and syrup. And they better be crispy. Nothing worse than a soggy waffle. :-) Yours look delicious!

  22. Well, I do love me some waffles and yes, I do frozen ones too BUT while we were visiting in Florida a couple of weeks ago, we made our own Belgian waffles in one of those cool irons that swivel...they were SO GOOD! You can make waffles our of some stuff that isn't even supposed to be made into a waffle...I saw a whole website with nothing but weird stuff...but looked delish!!

  23. We had waffles every Saturday when I was growing up also. It was just a ritual. We still love waffles and a couple of years ago I bought one of those that you flip over and love it. The pecan waffles sound delicious - will give them a try.

  24. Your waffles look really delicious. Mr.Z. eats the Eggo frozen waffles usually every morning except when I fix breakfast ... which is not very often. I will eat them with jelly or jam, but too soggy with syrup. Enjoyed your pictures.

  25. Homemade waffles sound wonderful . . . I used to make them when my children were young but not for years.
    Maybe it us time.
    This inspired me!
    Happy Easter bj . . ,

  26. Now I'm starving! LOVE waffles and yes, my favorite are pecan. :) You have a lovely waffle iron. I have one like Rue's, the heart shape. So fun anytime but really great for special occasions.

    Hey, speaking of Eggo, you need to try the "Extra Fluffy" ~ I think that's right. Excellent!!

    Have a wonderful Wednesday ~

  27. Yep, my waffles come in the same box as the ones in the last photos. Haha. I have never made them from scratch and haven't bought a box in a few years but we did enjoy them at our Daughter's home this winter. And we use real maple syrup on them. Yum. I was tempted to buy some yesterday but walked on by the cooler. Too much fat and sugar with all the yummy toppings on them. We have to behave. :( Enjoy!
