Pumpkin Waffles!! I cannot write the name of this recipe without at least two of these: !! I also cannot make this recipe without doubling it—thus the mountain of pumpkin waffles featured today. Why make a mountain of waffles? Because they keep in the fridge for a week and in the freezer for far longer—and if you’re […]
