Can we talk about waffles for a second? Second to the egg, the waffle is probably my favorite breakfast food. Last year for my birthday, my sister bought me a waffle maker and I've broken it out a few times and have managed to make some pretty okay waffles. But this morning, I made yeasted waffles and it's like my whole world was turned upside-down.

We are talking waffle perfection people. The perfect mix of crunchy and soft – a touch of sweetness, but not cloying in any way. Yeasted waffles? I love you. Recipe found via an extensive internet search at Orangette. While they do require a touch of forethought, they are still pretty low hassle and the flavor payoff is huge. HUGE!
