Pumpkin Waffles


Pumpkin Waffles

Wow - can you believe that today is the last day of September?  I hardly know where the month went.  I don't have kids in school any more but it sure seems like time is going faster!  Does it feel the same way for you?  Next up is October and I hope to be making some fall recipes so let's end this month with a seasonal ingredient breakfast item - pumpkin waffles.

Do you remember last week when a bunch of us bloggers celebrated Julie's birthday from This Gal Cooks?  We all made a dish with pumpkin - mine was a Pumpkin Turkey Chili.  There were many yummy recipes and this one particularly caught my eye from Lisa at Cooking With Curls.  I would have never thought of pumpkin waffles so I'm sure glad Lisa did.  Below is my recipe since I had to tweak it based on what I had in the house but be sure to click on the link above to see the original.

These were the lightest and fluffiest waffles I have ever had.  And our company this weekend thought so too.  Be sure to put this one on your to-do list!

  7. Deb, you and I could be great friends...if we lived in the same town! We obviously have very similar tastes. Could you imagine the dinner parties that we could have? :)
