Valentine Breakfast {The World's Best Waffles}

Valentines.... it's all about love. How do you show some one you love them? We all have our special ways. In our house my husband is more analytical and sweet. I am more sentimental and creative.

One of the things he will do for me on the weekend is cook breakfast.....very sweet!
We own a vintage waffle maker that we have used since we were married. He has a special recipe he uses that I will share with you. He tells me the key is the butter. (that is no surprise!) Buttering the waffle iron thoroughly and when you take them off butter them while they are hot.

I love when we are in the kitchen together. When the waffles came out I decided to get creative and practice for Valentine's Day. I used a vintage cookie cutter to make my heart shapes.

Telling someone you love them by cooking for them is real love in my book! For me, I also show love by how it is presented.

A beautiful plate...A carved garnish...whatever you choose to put your special mark on the meal.

This happened to be the perfect plate for this breakfast. The strawberry hearts add that little sumptin'sumptin'

I will do this again on Valentine's. You see we both celebrate Valentine's Day and then I celebrate his birthday. Ain't that special! He is a Valentine baby...

Delicious Valentine's Day's best!

2 cups all purpose flour
1tsp salt
4tsp baking powder

Oh you really know how to torture a person, the waffles look so good I can almost taste them. Oh yum. We don't have a waffle iron but have been thinking of getting one. The toaster waffles just don't cut it. We eat pancakes alot per my requests. I'll never be skinny but I'll sure die well fed. Thks for the great recipe, that will help inspire us to get a waffle iron. Maybe I'll keep an eye out at the thrift store for one, ones we've seen are kinda pricey for us.
