Cookbooks: Will It Waffle + Giveaway

Wil It Waffle

I first discovered Daniel Shumski and his waffle project in early 2010. He was on a mission to waffle everything that could waffle and as an devoted waffler myself, I took an interest. I watched the blog for awhile, before sending him a quick note, asking if he might be interested in a quick guest post featuring my waffle iron collection and a few of my waffle thoughts. He was and publishing this.

Last fall, Daniel published a book called Will it Waffle that contains more than fifty wonderful things you can waffle beyond a ladle of batter. It makes me long to leap up, pull out one of my two remaining waffle irons (an old vintage model and the Calphalon Belgium version – I gave the other old chrome model to my sister) and start cooking.

This book features ways to use your waffle iron for every meal of the day. There’s waffled french toast, sausage and hash browns for breakfast, gridded grilled cheese for lunch, waffled chicken parm for dinner, as well as salad toppers, side dishes, and desserts. If you happen to have a partner who objects to your waffle maker collection, this book will help you justify their presence in delicious fashion.

(If you’re in the market for a waffle iron, The Sweethome recently updated their recommendations. They don’t rank my Calphalon model very highly, but it has served me well over the last seven years. That said, it came to me as a review unit back in my Slashfood days, and when it eventually breaks, I’ll probably replace it with a less expensive Belgium maker.)

    My fave waffles right now are cornmeal waffles. And once, in the process of cleaning out the fridge, a room mate and I discovered they go really well with Indian food.

    I just discovered the concept of cooking things other than waffles in my waffle iron, after watching a video posted on facebook. LOVE the cinnamon rolls made this way! Can’t wait to try more recipes 🙂

    On July 24th last year (Pioneer Day here in Utah) I held the First Annual Waffle Fest in my backyard. I had two kinds of waffles and every topping we could think of from fruit to Nutella and plenty of buttermilk and maple syrup and whipped cream. I invited the neighborhood and family members and I ended up feeding about 60 people. It was so much fun, we’ll be doing it again this year! I love using my waffle iron at least once a week and this book would really give me great ideas!

    I love to make waffles to enjoy on a lazy Sunday morning. I always make extra so we can pop them in the freezer to toast up on busier weekdays.

    I made falafel waffles for the first time yesterday, and I was shocked on how easy it was to make a complete meal. I just threw some chickpeas, herbs, flour and seasoning into my food processor, gave it a whirl, smeared it into my waffle machine and, in less than 5 minutes, I had food. This is life-changing for my lunch game, I can’t even explain.

    I’m a new comer to this genius Will It Waffle idea!! Myself and my mother in law and sister in law live in separate states (myself in FL). We all have discovered this together and have been more than overly excited to try new recipes. Quick and fast breakfast omletes are my favorite. I’m thankful that my children can join in and help. We would love to try the recipes in this book.

    waffles – we have 4 irons around the house, I think we like them – my hardest part is putting only enough batter on the iron – the overflow is just so messy, but I still haven’t learned that enough is enough
