Fresh peaches scream summer.
Slap them on waffles with some vanilla yogurt… now you’re talking.
Did I mention these waffles were healthy?
Hello all, how is everyone doing? I hope everyone is having a great summer! It’s been a while since my last post – took a little time off blogging and have been enjoying the gorgeous summer weather. Truth be told that I haven’t actually made too much in the past month – the kitchen has just been so hot that baking has been the last thing on my mind. Cannot believe that summer is pretty well half over already- its almost mid august! Crazy talk. To fill you in on what I’ve been up to lately: I recently went on a mini vacation with C to the Okanagan. It was our first time visiting BC’s wine country and we absolutely loved every minute of it. Though the trip was only a few days long, it was a great getaway from the everyday fast-paced city life of Vancouver – miss it already.
We stayed at Eden House, a charming Bed & Breakfast in Kaleden, BC. This was our first time staying at a B&B and our hosts Sandy & Matt, along with their three well-behaved dogs, completely exceeded our expectations. They treated us like family and we couldn’t have been more impressed and thrilled to have met them – we will definitely go back to Eden House for our next trip to the Okanagan! For more information, check out my full review on tripadvisor or the Eden House website. Since it was our first time visiting the Okanagan, we wanted to cover as much ground as we could it the short amount of time that we had. Matt was very knowledgeable and had suggested a number of different wineries worth checking out.
We spent a whole day winery-hopping and hit a total of 6 altogether: Gehringer Brother’s, Silver Sage, Nk’ Mip Cellars, Dessert Hills, Wild Goose, and Liquidity. The high-lite of the winery hopping was hands-down the lunch at Nk’ Mip Cellars – it was amazing. Seriously… best lunch ever.
So how do waffles tie into all of this? Well, turns out that Matt and Sandy make some killer waffles. According to Sandy, its the almond milk that makes them so fluffy. So here is my version of Eden House’s fluffy waffles.
After looking up a few recipes, this was the recipe that I tweaked.
