This waffle recipe is not good. it is all chunky and horrible. plus they need more ingredients in the waffles. they are all dry and yuck. hopefully when you try these they aren't that way but personally me and my friend don't like this website or the sweet potato pecan waffles.

Although we don't like to admit it, there are times when you need to eat something other than waffles. Here you can find a link to Amazon which is a great place to buy your first or your new waffle maker. Then you have other sites that also offer great recipes and we like to visit them sometimes when we are in a mood for something other that waffles. Which is not very often :). Enjoy!
