Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! In honor of the holiday, I'm sharing a contemporary update on what happens to be one of my favorite nostalgic foods.I've said before that some of the best sandwiches evoke memories, and this recipe goes back when I was maybe 7 or 8, and my mom fixed me some waffles before realizing we were out of syrup. She improvised to make this sandwich, and "peanut butter and jelly waffles" soon became one of my favorite meals. Like the nonwaffly version, this PB&J is very easy to make and can inspire countless variations: almond instead of peanut butter, different flavors of waffles or even waffles from scratch, honey in place of jelly, Elvis-style with bananas, and on and on.
This time I used Eggo cinnamon waffles, which I highly recommend. The only requirement for this breakfast or lunch sandwich — and what sets it apart from a traditional PB&J — is using hot, toasted waffles, which melt the peanut butter in just the right warm and comfy way. To see my recipe, keep reading.
Even if you don't have leftover eggnog from the holidays, this recipe from PrettyGirlsCook makes us want to run down to the store and buy some for waffles! Hangover cure, anybody?Eggnog waffles are perfect to make with any leftover eggnog.
It's easy to roll out the sugar cookie dough and toss on some sprinkles for a quick Valentine's Day treat. While a cookie may taste delicious, it can be the downfall to a healthy diet.

Instead of tempting yourself with the usual suspects, consider showing your sweetheart or your girlfriends how much you care about them and their health with these simple and easy Valentine shaped dishes. They're sure to win their hearts over.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who loves a quick blueberry sauce. So does member girlA, who uses hers to top savory dinner dishes — as well as vegan waffles the next morning.
The other night I made Field Roast with Blueberry Sauce and had some leftover sauce. That called for morning waffles. This is a healthy, hearty waffle that will stick to the ribs. I highly recommend doubling the recipe if feeding more than 2 people–as it is, it only makes about 4-6 small waffles. It’s a simple recipe where everything just goes in the blender and you're ready to go!
