Notes: What a perfect start to a Sunday! This was a yummy treat. The waffles were crispy and soft and the syrup was really good. The cream cheese I think finished it off perfectly. Yet another week down on my project, and we are creeping up on a month! Im still motivated and have been dreaming of drawers filled with spices. So far the outlook is very positive, and I still have a TON of great ideas both thought up and in the works.
