  1. I made half a recipe and wish I had made more! I liked the strong hint of lemon and the texture was fluffy. I sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar or spread with strawberry thyme butter. Both were good! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
  2. What a wonderful waffle. I love lemon flavor so this was right up my alley!! I made 1/4 of the recipe, using just 1 egg, and it worked out perfectly for one serving. It has a nice subtle lemon flavor. I added some butter and sprinkled on some powdered sugar for a great morning treat. Thanks for sharing the recipe BK. Made for PRMR tag game.
  3. Great waffles! the lemon was light but present. i served them with whipped cream and lingon berry jam which brought out the lemon. I made a half recipe which made not quite 8 squares on a traditional 4 square waffle maker. Made for CQ4
  4. These were great! I loved the lemon flavor, very different from the usual vanilla waffles. I only wish I had a better, more authentic waffle iron instead of my electric Elmo one! Thanks! Made for CQ '17

I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
