Oh hey hi there! Every year at this time I become a bad, bad blogger. Work gets super crazy, ski season is at it’s peak, and this year my husband-to-be got nominated for a DGA award, and I made my very first trip out to LA! Basically, something has to give, and it’s the blog. Even though things are a little cray around here, we (aka me) are definitely still cooking up a storm, and eating lots too! (And that’s definitely both of us!!)
A while ago I whipped up these waffles (because my awesome Mom got me this amazing Stovetop Belgian Waffle Maker for Christmas!) and they are light and fluffy, rich and wintery, and perfect for a chilly weekend brunch! And, since I’m still on my wedding “diet”, I kept these waffles extra healthy with some Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Flour, apple sauce and flax meal, and drizzled a little agave nectar on them. I’d pretty much give anything to be in bed right now, with a tray of these waffles, some tea and watching some of the Good Wife (aka, my latest obsession), but since the weekend is still a few days away, I guess I’ll just have to reminisce about them with you!
So, real talk, I made these waffles way back in January (right after I raided the Anthropologie clearance sale) while I was on vacation and I ate them almost every single day (and of course since I was skiing every day I was starving for them in the mornings!) Joe is not much a breakfast person, so I had them all to myself. Yum!
I originally thought about turning these into a dessert (ya know, with some ice cream and whipped cream on top. Wowsers.) but let’s be honest here – I have a wedding dress to fit into in 100 days. I can make these into a dessert after! Right now, I will keep them as a healthy and filling weekend treat. Have you started thinking about the warmer weather yet? I sure have! And not just for my wedding either! I’ve started working out in the mornings again – and this year of better eating choices has really paid off – I’m about 10 pounds lighter than I was at this time last year! (Just 10 more to go….)Even though I haven’t been posting as much, there are lot’s of (healthy!) recipes to come – and I hope you have been enjoying the food and ski pics – there are more to come!
