Sweet Potato & CoConut Milk Waffles
It's totally that time of year for sleeping in past the alarm, stoking the wood stove and heating up the waffle iron. I recently inherited by Grandparent's Nordic Ware Belgian Waffler and it's become an almost daily mid-morning ritual. Nothing holds you over on a long cold day like a waffle. But don't take my word for it. Try it for yourself.
