I made waffles!

I've made crème brûlée. I've made a German chocolate cake from scratch. I've made some culinarily challenging things in the fifteen-plus years that I've been cooking.

However, I had never made waffles prior to today. I got a waffle maker last year for Christmas, but have put off using it because I thought we were going to be moving into a house, and then we didn't, and so I decided today to unpack it and use it.

I used the recipe weetanya posted a little while back (I'd link to it, but I can't find it in your previous entries. I did look.) I was a little nervous, because it called for beating the egg whites into firm peaks, and I've had bad luck with that sort of thing before.

Well, I did it, by George. Those eggs peaked, baby, and did they ever! The waffles were delicious, and I have to give major props to my excellent Cuisinart WMR-CA waffle maker. I was fully expecting to have a sacrificial first waffle, but no - first to last, all were perfectly golden brown. Not a burnt one in the lot. Recipe made nine waffles.

I'm quite pleased with myself. The eggs actually did what they were supposed to do. Perhaps it was a holiday gift from a good Christmas spirit, but in any case, I'm happy.

Food porn!

You're going to be the reason I get fat. I keep reading your posts and going, "Uh, that sounds good. Time to raid the kitchen."

*grins* Glad to be of service. If you move this direction, maybe you'll be close enough to come for a visit where I can cook for you two. :)

Should I rename the journal Banshee's Food pr0n? :)
