Lemon Buckwheat Waffles

A part of me wants to talk about how I have writer’s block, but that’s boring.

A part of me wants to talk about my love of lemon, but that’s old news.

A part of me wants to talk about how I saw a man on the Subway eating a whole chicken with his hands, but that’s irrelevant.

A part of me wants to talk about how I’m kind of obsessed with these pictures, but that goes against my modest nature (ahem sarcasm)

A part of me wants to talk about how I attempted to photograph my latest oatmeal recipe before eating anything and the wicked witch of the west came out to play, but today we’re talking waffles.

A part of me wants to talk about how I wished you guys had voted for the oatmeal instead of the waffles in my Facebook and Twitter poll because I actually have something to write about the oatmeal, but you didn’t.

A part of me wants to talk about how I  would rather be watching The Real World right now, but….so shameful.

A part of me wants to talk about how awesome these Lemon Buckwheat Waffles are, but instead I talked about absolutely nothing.

    Part of me what’s to have a massive rant right now about something which correlates directly with our upcoming post….

    But I can chillax and calm my nerves over these waffles…so glad you posted this OVER oatmeal because I have the damn waffle maker here! Seeing as you’ve hyped up the lemon flavouring, I may aswell test it out too.

    Before even reading this I was going to say that I love your photos! Always improving :) These obvi look amazing and I for one am glad you posted the waffles because I don’t like oatmeal…… I’m weird I know. Also a man ate a whole chicken?? How disturbing. Or maybe it would’ve just made me hungry..

Your posts are always so loveable! Your personality shines through! Keep it up!

    These pictures… literally, I saw the preview pic in my bloglovin’ feed and I thought to myself “I need to remember to tell her in my comment how amazing her photography is,” I swear I’m not just saying that because you mentioned it (although I laughed when you did, great minds?). And I feel you on writer’s block lately. Oof.

    Those photos are incredible!!! The boys like waffles – I really should make them more often. Breakfast tends to get the short stick here since on weekdays everyone gets up at different times and eats on their own. On the weekends Chris is usually the breakfast maker which works for me!!

    Every part of me wants to tell you I legit laughed out loud at the mental image of the man eating chicken. Every part of me wants to tell you this post was adorable, and EVERY part of me NEEDS these waffles. YUM.

  7. says

    Oh lord…I just gagged a little about the story with the man and the chicken….BLEH! That’s just nasty. I don’t do meat on the bone…ESPECIALLY not on a flippin Subway!
    Anyway, these look amazing! Im a huge lemon lover too. The lemon and blueberry combo is one of my favorites!!

    Um… the guy eating chicken with his bare hands is ALL I want to talk about. I hate your damn waffles now – WHERE IS THIS MAN. BRING HIM TO ME.

    Arman says you guys are road tripping to Alberta? Why didn’t you tell me? Why do you hate me?

    Lemons all day err’ day! They really never get old. Writer’s block has been the death of me lately. I think every post I write is abut nothing but then it some how turns into a weird, irrelevant smorgasbord that gets me to the recipe in some form or another. Whatever works, yo!

  10. says

    *raising hand* Um, I would very much like to hear more about the whole chicken-eating weirdo on the subway, please. On another note, I just found your blog and so far really like it. I will be perusing to try and find more healthy recipe ideas. Nice to meet ya!

  11. says

    OMG I’m cracking up right now… just because of what you texted me about this post. But I really want to make these, I’m just terrible at making waffles. I’ll just have to wait to come to Toronto so you can make Ang and I waffles for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    Even though you talked about nothing, this was one of my favourite posts yet!! You talked about so much while talking about nothing at all- AWESOME!

    So awesome, that I want to make these immediately, but alas, no waffle iron. I really must just bite the bullet on that one!

    Hi Davida! This is beyond odd….no wonder I couldn’t keep up with your posts :( so sorry! For some reason, my feedly isn’t showing your recent posts and I just resolved it by adding the current feed/link again, it must have happened after you had a new site design. Yummmm, that’s some yummy looking waffles – I love a bit of tangy flavors from the waffles! I love the photos!

  14. says

    Part of me wants to tell you that I love your FREAKIN FACE!! Another part of me wants to tell you that I don’t even like lemon, but I’m pretty sure you could talk me into one of these sugar dusted waffles. Part of me wants to know more about the chicken fingers man. Part of me wants to tell you that I’m sorry for getting so far behind in your posts. Part of me thinks you should know that I’m leaving you a good sized broccoli bomb right now instead of taking a nap. Part of me wants you to take pity on me and mail me cookies. ;)
