We had a slightly annoying trip to the mall this weekend, but it was all made worthwhile because we bought a wafflemaker! Oh what a lovely bit of marvelous. I think we're going to eat waffles every sunday morning now while we watch Charles Osgood's magazine-style show.

For the first batch, we just used the recipe that came with the wafflemaker, but now I want to know all the recipes. Blueberry waffles. Chocolate chip waffles. So if anyone has a cool recipe for waffles or an idea for toppings or whatever (I'm thinking of trying warmed-up honey), let me know.

waffling, or waughling
Maple syrup is good; it's thin enough to warm through on the fresh waffle. Mind you, put it on immediately before eating or it will simply disappear, and, with repeated dressings, you may finish up eating a 120% syrup, 80% waffle mixture, which I know will appeal to your appetite. Don't, please, over-warm up the honey. If you must, stand the jar in warm water for a few minutes, but too much heat destroys umpteen of its best qualities, rather like boiling Scotch. And why are you not a four hundred pound fartbag, by the way?

And here was I thinking you were on an exclusive diet of raw meat and waffles. I should add that I'm listening to Tannhauser and not playing any video games, 'cos I can't be arsed with them - it's the age gap thing.

Roger's golden syrup and brown sugar and/or maple syrup cooked in a pan with lavender/mint tea reduction.

Wholey fucking gods it's good. You need to make the tea fresh with lavender flowers and fresh mint, reduce this to a dark tea base.

then cook the syrups in a pan on fairly high heat, not to carmel stage but close, then add the reduced tea to it. It's beyond good and you can keep the mix in a bottle or whatever for about a week or so in the fridge.

It's thick and ooohhhh so gooood.

If you mix it with balsamic vinegar and just a touch of sesame oil and good olive oil it makes an excellent dressing too. I usually add herbs to that though.

You make me want to cook good things again :)

Wow, that does sound amazing!

Latest thought: I could mash up a banana really well and stir that into the batter with some nuts.

Use ground almonds and reduce the flour. And really ripe nana's

I think there's one that uses cornflour too and makes them taste like cornbread...

That could be good. Like replace half the flour with corn meal?

I think so...I gotta find that recipe thing I had before and send it to you.

pumpkin waffles
My personal favorite. My aunt makes apple and pear butter and I put that on top. http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=96 that is the link I got my recipe from.

did you see the segment on dada? it really made me want to go see the exhibition, but i didn't catch the museum it was at.


in my pancakes and waffles, i always use about a 1/2 TBSP. of vanilla. it adds a fuller taste and a lovely smell whilst you're cooking. when i was small, my dad would add peppermint extract at the holidays. it sounds gross, but it was actually pretty good. just don't use syrup at that point, use powdered sugar instead.

i'm making more bath stuff this week--this time it's salts & sugar scrubs!

Oooh, vanilla sounds goooooood. And I have some really good vanilla someone brought me back from Mexico.

The Dada exhibit is at the National Gallery in DC (http://www.nga.gov/exhibitions/dadainfo.shtm). K. and I were jazzed by that piece too. Bonus: it made me pull Greil Marcus's "Lipstick Traces" off the bookshelf.

bananna walnut is good. and easy...all you do is put little pieces of bannanas and chopped up walnuts in the waffle batter :)
