To be honest, until a few years ago, or more precisely until I met my husband, for me the words ‘breakfast’ and ‘waffles’ just did not belong together. You see in Germany you eat waffles like you eat cake. In the afternoon with coffee or tea on a Sunday. Then along came David and this weird idea to have waffles for breakfast. Being that I am usually starving by the time that he gets up, plus I am always game to try something new, I fairly quickly agreed. Ever since we have had breakfast waffles whenever the mood strikes us.

After not having had waffles in a while, we both agreed that this should be our start into 2016. And so we had breakfast waffles on New Year’s Day. Of course, I took a few pictures. Then it occurred to me that while I had posted photos these waffles on social media before, I actually have never shared David’s special recipe before. Because, you know, he is the master of these tasty and crunchy, never soggy beauties. David usually has his with butter, powdered sugar and freshly pressed lemon juice, whereas I will have them with maple syrup (Trader Joe’s Grade B is my favorite!). But why not try something different and have them with some fresh fruit or, like I used to in Germany, simply with some yummy jam.

Guten Appetit!

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.

While they are deciding, make even more art.”

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!
