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. I want to hear more about the guy eating the whole chicken. You can’t just dangle that in front of us and not elaborate. RUDE!

  2. 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.

    1. A part of me wants to tell you that I think you’re awesome and I wish I could share my bodum with you!

  3. 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!!

  4. Hahahaha you’re soooo modest. Love it. And I love you because I consistently do my best to read your blog on my iPhone. The pictures are still beautiful on here as well. Glad you posted the waffles.

    1. Mostly I’m happy to hear it’s working on your iphone because THM refuses to work on my phone or iPad….it’s been so frustrating!

  5. I love lemon flavored edibles. This recipe is perfect because I have some chia seeds I need to use up!

  6. Girl these pictures are so fab! I have to tell you that there’s this thing called the Dixie Stampede which is a dinner show and they give you food and no utensils so you have to eat it all with your hands and so I’ve eaten half a chicken with my hands. Me and the guy at Subway could be bffs.

  7. Keep the lemon recipes coming! A part of me wants to tell you that yesterday was a rare crappy day for me, but I still think something magical is just around the corner 🙂

  8. 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…

  9. I love your photographs Davida! They always make me want to eat my computer monitor! 😉

    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!
