Perfect Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Years!

We were lucky enough to visit with some of our closest friends, eat great food, like these Brown Butter Brookies and play a few games. Then we returned home to find one my recipes was published in Foodie: Game Day Eats Edition! How awesome is that!

On another note way back in September  Colt threw out our 15 year old waffle iron when all the waffles kept sticking and his patients grew thin, no matter how well he greased it and we were blessed with a new waffle iron for Christmas. I can't believe we haven't had a waffle until now! It feels like forever! 

What a perfect excuse to update the pictures for the blog and indulge in these perfect waffles. I can't tell you how much I've missed these. So light and crisp, perfect to smoother in strawberries and whip cream. The perfect start to any morning.

  5. Hi Serena. These waffles look absolutely wonderful! I have been thinking about making/eating waffles lately, too. It must be something with the weather or January or needing some comfort food after the sadness of having to put away the Christmas decorations. Anyway, thanks for sharing this great looking recipe. I am going to use it tomorrow! I like to make breakfast for dinner on Sunday evenings.

  6. These look wonderful! =)
    I love fancy waffles and pancakes for Breakfast ( or any time )!

  7. These waffles are GORG, Serena! I'm sharing your post on my Facebook page! Oh, and tell me how sad it is that I have to tell you that I'm sharing because I KNOW you'll never see the share in your newsfeed.... UGH.

  8. Your recipe says 1 tablespoon baking POWDER then says 1/2 Teaspoon baking POWDER. Is one baking soda? Which one?

    1. Hi Karen, Its both! Its 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. Sorry for the confusion, I use a program that makes my recipes internet compatible and it had to be written that way! Thanks, Serena

  9. The recipe that is whitener below the pictures is missing the step of whipping the egg whites.
