Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream are as delicious as it sounds. Crisp on the outside, soft and warm on the inside. Top with toasted pecans and you’re in heaven!
Ahh finally! As of last Thursday and after a long 12 hours of traveling (NY -> PA -> Phoenix -> Payson), I finally made to my new home in sunny Arizona. Woohoo! This was probably THE longest trip I’ve ever done and oddly enough I was WIRED by the time the flight landed. My friend Monica (who you may hear more frequently) came to pick me up from the airport and throughout the 1 and 1/2 hour drive from Phoenix to Payson I could not shut up. For the life of me I cannot recall what I was talking about; I think my brain was half asleep while the other half was blabbering nonsense but I do remember feeling an enormous amount of excitement when I saw cacti for the first time alongside of the road. And the stars in the sky, OH MY GAWD!
Remember going to the planetarium in grade school? Remember seeing the stars not only above your head but also toward the horizon where it appeared as though the stars were next to you? That’s exactly what I saw while gazing out the passenger window driving North in the mountains toward Payson. Not sure if it may be from less air pollution or if Arizona is geographically closer to the sky (that’s a serious wild guess right there) but the stars were intensely bright and appeared much closer. Nothing I’ve ever seen before!
Now that I’ve shared my first Arizona evening experience with you, I’d like to shift gears on this recipe created before I left New York.
If there is one breakfast I’ve been dying to make at home, it was waffles. For years I’ve always wanted a waffle maker but never got around to getting one. Well, KitchenAid graciously provided me with theirs and I was stoked to try it! Being that time was limited in creating new recipes before leaving NY, this waffle maker came in handy.
Without further ado, hop on over to the KitchenAid Blog where I share with you the recipe and how tasty this breakfast (or dessert, if you will) truly is!
