If you’ve noticed that I’ve not been posting as frequently as before, you are right! A good portion of my kitchen stuff is in boxes and we’ve been working on a few little renovation projects on our new house =). It’s messy now, but I know it will be worth it in the end. I made these waffles a few days before I packed up my waffle iron. It had been a while since I’d made waffles but wouldn’t you know that as soon as I packed it up, I had all sorts of waffle recipes floating around in my head ;). I love the combination of honey and rye. You don’t get a strong flavor from the rye flour – more of a subtle nuttiness. If you think you don’t like rye, it might be the caraway seeds that rye flour is often paired with that you don’t like. Rye + honey = delicious! Leftovers freeze and reheat really well too. Give them a try. Enjoy!
