👩🏻🍳 Tamara Talks (About Waffles)
The first known waffle recipe was written in the 14th century by a young French husband to his young wife. His recipe included beating some eggs with salt and wine, flour was to be added, and the mixture was to be poured into an iron that cooked on both sides. He did not include leavening in the recipe, but did have variations that included placing cheese between two layers of waffle batter (savory waffles even back then!)...
Fast forward several centuries, and waffles became a favorite sweet breakfast treat with powdered sugar, maple syrup, fruit, etc. In recent years, though, waffles have evolved to include both sweet and savory ingredients, and a variety of grains and leavening methods.
I am writing to you today from Charlotte, NC. while visiting and helping to care for my new grandson Carter James Andersen (born July 7) and my 2 year-old grandson Cade Christian Andersen. 🙂 Developing, testing, and photographing new recipes is a bit out of the question right now, so it's a great time to gather some awesome waffle recipes from a few of my food blogging friends!

If you don't currently own a waffle iron, I highly recommend consider purchasing one... and now, a very busy 2 year-old needs some Gramma loves. 😀
