Nostalgia and Fun Through Waffles

Jul 7th, 2014 | By | Category: Blog

Partway through this past semester I brought my family’s waffle iron to school. I was living in a suite with some friends, and we used the iron to make sweet and savory waffles for snacks and meals. Having the waffle iron reminded me of the times my parents had made waffles when we had relatives over, during relaxing weekend mornings, or for special occasions. It was also exciting to experiment with different types of waffles. We made waffles with a variety of ingredients including rice flour, anise extract, pumpkin, and almonds. The waffle iron meals and snacks showed me how nostalgic food can be, and how much room for experimentation cooking has. Everything we made was a waffle, but they all varied so much. The waffle iron was also a good addition since it gave us numerous opportunities to hang out and cook together, an example of how great food is for bringing people together.
