Lemon Buckwheat Waffles

February 20, 2014

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 ย 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.

    a part of me wants to tell you that I had lemon pound cake on Monday and now I’m kind of understanding the lemon obsession thing. Not bad at all…

    I love your photographs Davida! They always make me want to eat my computer monitor! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have had no experience with buckwheat flour before. I always tend to use almond or coconut flour, but I’m thinking I should really branch out because these waffles look fabulous!

    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.

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    Before even reading this I was going to say that I love your photos! Always improving ๐Ÿ™‚ 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..

    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).

    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.
