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.

  1. 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.

  2. These look so amazing! I’m currently staying with my in-laws and my waffle maker is buried somewhere in the basement, but I’m totally trying this recipe once my hubby and I get our own place! They sound absolutely delicious and I think they’d be great with blueberries on top. 🙂

  3. Sometimes you just have to ramble off some contents of the mind! I mean, I found it pretty fascinating that a guy was eating a whole chicken with his hands on the subway.
    Also, I want these waffles!!! And yes, the photos are beautiful 🙂

  4. Gorgeous photos Davida! Loving these waffles with the buckwheat/coconut and lemon flavoring! But you forgot something major – shipping me a couple of these – Get to it girrl! 🙂

  5. A part of me wants to tell you that you should give us the oatmeal recipe soon! Another BIG part of me wants to tell you those waffles look great, and I need to find myself some buckwheat, and another BIG part of me wants to tell you that you are so awesome! Your posts are always so loveable! Your personality shines through! Keep it up!

  6. I totally agree with you , these pictures came out great! I have been on a huge chocolate chip waffle kick since we have been staying over at a hotel for work lately, but I bet these homemade waffles blow those out of the water

  7. Yum! I love the mix of buckwheat and coconut flour, I am sure these would go over quite well in my house!
    A part of me wants to tell you that I wish I could eat oatmeal three meals a day, but then I would feel bad for my husband 🙂

    1. I feel ya Cara!!! I totally could too.

      We should grab the buckwheat pancakes from Sadie’s sometime!

  8. 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..

  9. Please tell me you put your phone on silent and took a picture of the guy eating the chicken. Please say you did this (because I would have).

  10. 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.
