Shape Matters

Waffle makers - we now own three of them.  My folks gave us one years ago that they got as a white elephant gift.  (Oddly enough there was a wedding card inside for my cousin as it was a wedding gift to her.). It makes waffle sticks.
Friends of ours gave us one that is similar to a fancy hotel model that flips, but it was thin and rectangle.  Thinking of the properties of liquids and how they pour rectangles aren't exactly the shape needed for waffles.
For Christmas - Andy gave the family a gift - a round hotel style waffle maker!  Every time I stay at a hotel with breakfast provided, I make waffles in their fancy waffle maker.  Now we can do it at home.  Better yet this recipe was on Pinterest and we gave it a try.  Andy made them and wow they were so good.  Well worth any effort necessary to make them. Can't wait to have them again.
