well, i’m back from the dead.

turns out that not having access to a kitchen is kind of frustrating. who knew? not having the opportunity to come up with creative new recipes has definitely been frustrating. i personally find that surviving on take-out is really unsatisfying. i also feel like i never get enough flavor!

cue this recipe from the weekend at the parent’s house.

spicy pumpkin waffles


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 of a cup of agave syrup
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
  • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • Vegetable oil for brushing waffle iron

preheat waffle iron.

sift together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, and spices.

whisk eggs in a large bowl until blended, then whisk in milk, buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter until smooth. whisk in dry ingredients just until smooth.

brush waffle iron lightly with oil and spoon batter (about 2 cups for four 4-inch Belgian waffles) into waffle iron, spreading quickly. cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.

transfer waffles to rack in oven to keep warm and crisp. make more waffles in same manner. enjoy with some pure maple syrup and fruit!

“It’s an empowering idea. The entire goliath of the food industry is ultimately driven and determined by the choices we make as the waiter gets impatient for our order or in the practicalities and whimsies of what we load into our shopping carts or farmers’ market bags.” - Jonathan Safran Foer ..............................................................
