My all-time favorite way to eat a waffle. Maple-covered blueberries. Bacon bacon bacon. Bananas. And cream. Make your own waffles or toast up the frozen Belgian version to save time. Regardless, this is the best breakfast (or dessert) you'll eat in a week.
A quick note about the life of a food photographer: sometimes the most glorious recipes turn into terrible images when the lighting is low.
I'm afraid the photos in this post are of that nature. Not quite as I'd imagined. And not really doing this idea justice. When I pulled the photos into Lightroom, I realized all-too-late that my shutterspeed had been too low. And my lack of patience for putting camera on tripod meant all sorts of bizarre detail had been lost to shaky hands.
Note to self: use a tripod.
'Nother note to self: when you're really, really excited to dive into waffles. Really, really use a tripod.
Note to you: don't let these scary photos fool you. These waffles is the stuff of dreams.
