SWEET
Nothing sweet that caught my eye this week, I’m afraid.

SAVOURY

1. I’ve recently discovered my unconditional love for sweet potatos, so: Sweet Potato Gratin

2. I’m also a big fan of butternut squash: Butternut Squash Stew (should probably make the most of winter vegetables)

3. Peas. Of course we can’t not talk peas, when we’re talking about vegetables that I like. Here’s an amazing sounding recipe for Green Pea Pesto Ravioli (they’re sooo pretty too!)

4. This one reminds me a tiny bit of these Huevos Rancheros of closetcooking. The only thing in common being salsa and egg, but surely kidney beans and avocado could only make these waffles even better? Savoury Cornmeal and Chives Waffles with Salsa and Eggs

THE WAFFLE HOUSE, St. Albans

The Waffle House is exactly what its name suggests: a house where you can get all sorts of waffles, savoury or sweet, healthy or indulgent and furthermore something that you can’t get from the name: a place where you can get the most delicious milkshakes that you will have ever tasted.

To many people savoury waffles don’t exactly sound nice, but to me, it’s like with crêpes, it’s just a fairly neutral base that becomes amazing with the delicious ingredients that you eat them with, savoury OR sweet. And even the critics in our little group had to agree in the end, that the savoury waffle that I ordered (Hummous and Avocado: fresh organic hummous, tahini, olive oil, layered with wild rocket, sun-dried tomatoes, drizzeled with a sweet chili and balsamic dressing and topped with an avocado fan) was absolutely delicious.

But of course the sweet ones are, as expected, absolutely incredible too! If you get a chance, you need to try the Banoffee Waffle (fresh sliced bananas smothered with home-made toffee and sprinkled with flaked chocolate) and if you’re not too calorie-conscious: order some icecream to go with it.

The location is very nicely picked, right next to a little stream with a mill, prices are very reasonable and the little queue that you are likely to face is well worth it. In other words: definitely give it a go :)
