Foodie Friday: Waffles!

It's Foodie Friday! Foodie Friday is my weekly feature that gives you a window into my kitchen. I love to cook, I love to eat, I love to read cookbooks, and I love to inspire people to give vegan food a chance. Thus, Foodie Friday was whipped up and baked to perfection.
I know, I know, I said that I was going to talk about waffles last week. But here's the thing, I got invited to taco night at a friend's house last Friday, and who am I to turn that down? Nobody, that's who! Especially because this friend is the one who gave me the waffle iron that made the waffles possible. So off I went with my bags of veggie burger crumbles and soy cheese, leaving my beautiful waffle creations behind to soak up their syrup. But never you fear, because skipping a week gave me the chance to make even more waffles, so really, everyone wins. The lesson? Don't skip taco night (and the opportunity to spend time with friends), the waffles will understand.

Maple-pecan waffles from 1,000 Vegan Recipes, topped with pecans and maple syrup.

Pumpkin waffles from 1,000 Vegan Recipes, topped with dried cranberries and ginger syrup. These were my favorite of the four recipes that I tried.

Lemon-kissed blueberry waffles from 1,000 Vegan Recipes, topped with fresh blueberries and maple syrup (plus some Lightlife Smart Links veggie sausages). These stuck to my waffle iron no matter what I did. I'm still scraping blueberry residue out of that thing.

Naked vegan waffles from, topped with fresh strawberries and maple syrup. These were the heartiest of the bunch because they're made with whole wheat flour, but they were no less delicious than the others.

You've just shown me all the delicious things I swore I wouldn't eat for lent.

Oh my goodness! Those look SO good. I love blueberries and will definitely have to give those lemon-kissed blueberry waffles a try, it's great that they're vegan too :)

Those look amazing. I would have to find a woman to do that for me, however, because I don't have the patience.

I want to be out and gone when it's breakfast time, and if I eat waffles, it's normally because it's quick. :)
