Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

Sunday, June 8, 2014


In my opinion, summer officially starts with the first u-pick strawberries of the year. And with the first strawberries, some version of strawberry shortcake is always quick to follow. This summer we kicked it off with strawberry shortcake waffles the morning after our u-pick adventure. But to be honest, the waffles are really just a vehicle to get the sweet, juicy berries and cream into your mouth.

Home sweet home. There is something about the first pancakes on the deck on a sunny summer morning that makes a new place feel like home.

Cinnamon Rolls

In my family, we always have these cinnamon rolls at least twice a year - on Christmas morning and on Santa Lucia Day. I love to warm the iced cinnamon rolls in the oven right before serving them so that the icing melts into the rolls, making a gooey cinnamon treat!
