strawberry almond muffins

DSCF3847This is off-season, but that’s what I get for archiving a bunch of half-finished posts. Well, you get what you get, readers! (All two of you. Hi.) To be honest, I feel like these muffins were too moist. Maybe I should have baked them a little past set. I mostly needed to find something to use up my overripe strawberries with, so found this recipe. Will probably try something else next year. (Or buy fewer baskets of strawberries…)

first attempt – liege waffles

DSC_6434These liege waffles were a huge pain in the butt. I had to buy special ingredients (Belgian pearl sugar), it took forever (3 days?) and to be honest I don’t think they came out that well. During our Portland trip a few months ago, we went to Off the Waffle for our last breakfast and damnnnn that waffle was amazing – I was inspired. But alas, my first attempt at liege waffles yielded something much denser and all-around not as mouth watering. Yes, they were still okay – it’s hard for sugared bread to be disliked, but with Off the Waffle fresh in my mind… I just couldn’t love these.

But I mean, I made them for a birthday brunch for a group of friends and they were a hit anyway. Maybe my standards are too high. But you know, maybe not.
