I've Died and Gone to Waffle House!

Close your eyes and imagine yourself eating breakfast in bed...a warm waffle drenched in Earth Balance and maple syrup, a mug of hot coffee, the newspaper, and a loved one. OK, now open them so you can read about these awesome waffles! In my dream, the waffles I would be eating in bed are these Cinnamon Pecan Waffles! These are from Bianca of Vegan Crunk's upcoming cookbook, "Cookin' Crunk." I get to be a tester for her awesome new Southern cookbook...which is perfect because I love Southern food! hooray! This waffle recipe is first up for the testing challenge. These waffles are so wonderful! A bit more "buttery" tasting than any vegan waffles I've had before, such as the ones I drool over from Vegan With A Vengeance. They are also pretty pecan-laden. Or pee-kan if you are really from the South. They are just like the really tasty but really awful-for-you version at Waffle House. Which I will tell you unashamed that I loved that greasy spoon place as an omni. So thanks Bianca for bringing me back, but in a much kinder, healthier way!

Happy New Year! Love the visualization! Breakfast in bed sounds completely awesome.

And Cinnamon Pecan Waffles! Oh my gosh. What a great breakfast to start off 2009. I absolutely love pecans in pancakes, but for some reason I have never thought about baking them into waffles.
