Weekend Waffles

As a working mom, I don’t always have the time on weekdays to cook Pickle an elaborate breakfast. I try to make up for that on the weekends by cooking things I know that she will love, and that require a bit more effort than opening a yogurt container or pouring a bowl of cereal.

Waffles are a family favorite, and this is an interesting twist to a typical waffle. We have a belgian waffle maker, and this recipe will make four large belgian waffles. They also freeze decently, and can be thrown in the microwave or toaster over to reheat on a school morning.
