Valentine’s Fromage Frais Waffles

  Happy Valentine’s Day… To be honest, I’m actually not much of a Valentine’s Day fan. Having grown up in Germany when it wasn’t yet a thing over there I can still happily do without the rather commercial fuss.  But I decided to use today’s date as an excuse for a breakfast of heart-shaped waffles in […]

Belgian Waffles

Recently I went to Belgium for a few days, first I went to Bruges and then to Antwerp. I really liked both cities, for different reasons.

Buttermilk Waffles with Cherries & Cream

For today’s receipe I’m combining something from my recent American memories with my not quite so recent German childhood memories: When I grew up in Germany, waffles were a special treat – a very popular one I might add. You could be sure that someone would have a waffle stall at any church or school fair […]
