Pumpkin Waffles

I meant to write this post last night but instead I watched another episode of Lark Rise to Candleford with my daughter.

Have you watched any of this delightful BBC series?  It’s my one weakness (watch and you’ll understand!)

We are on Season Two and loving every minute of it.  We laugh, smile and sigh together and sometimes there may even be a tear or two!  We both have a crush on Fisher.  Check it out if you haven’t.  We are getting it through Netflix. I believe Season Four is current on BBC.  Each day it is “Hurry and get your homework done so we can watch another episode!”  Love it!

Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin, apples, cinnamon and fall – they just all go together.  In fact, all the baking and cooking I’ve been doing this last week seems to involve apples or pumpkin and cinnamon.

This weekend I made a batch of these pumpkin cookies with maple frosting to send to Utah to the boys.  Clark also requested a batch of sour cream apple bars so of course I made some.  Then there were the delicious apple strudel muffins for Muffin Monday.

We also enjoyed some pumpkin waffles with buttermilk syrup for breakfast this last week.  They are the perfect fall breakfast (or dinner!)

Fall has definitely arrived here in Portland. The mornings are cool and the trees are turning colors. I LOVE this time of year – definitely my favorite.

What says Fall better than pumpkin? My friend Jane has raved to me about her pumpkin waffles for years. I finally got her to give me the recipe this last week!

Pumpkin Waffles

I made them for Sunday breakfast this week and they were so yummy. I am not a big pumpkin fan but I liked these waffles. They are perfect paired with buttermilk syrup or cinnamon syrup.

I think I would like anything that was covered in buttermilk syrup or cinnamon syrup!

Beware: they are rich!

Pop them on a Halloween plate and you’ve got the perfect Halloween morning breakfast or dinner. Fill up the tummies of those little mummies before you send them out!

    Your Fall recipes all sound so good and comforting. You mentioned the series your watching. I am surprised that I haven’t even heard of this one. I’ve watched (own) Jane Austin movies and Cranford, among others but “Lark Rise to Candleford” is now on my “must watch soon” list. Thanks for mentioning it. I love 1800’s era movies. Hope you’re week is going great so far.

    “Lark Rise to Candleford” looks so good! I love historical shows, and this one looks so full of drama. Your recipes, as usual, sound amazing and cozy. But really, I am so inspired by your close relationship with your teenage daughter. I love love love that you’ve found something the two of you can bond and connect over. It gives me an idea of what I can look forward to with my daughter someday!

    Thanks for letting us know about Lark Rise to Candleford. It is a great series. I am half way through the first season and really enjoying it. Now, I am off to make your sour cream apple bars for the kid’s after school treat.

    We have been enjoying Lark Rise here at our home. In fact we missed watching The Amazing Race so we could finish watching episodes of Season 3 on YouTube. Hope you continue enjoying Lark Rise!

    So… I’m not the ONLY person who loves that series?! I have to go on a blog-strike occasionally to prove what’s really important in my life – so good for YOU that you can share some time with your daughter while she is still with you this year. I lose my last son in three weeks to the mission field, and I’m trying to be positive. Great post!

    Thanks for the Provo restaurant/dessert list! By the way, The Chocolate has a website now, and a blog. I noticed on their blog, they give a shout-out to a new restaurant, Cafe Paesan, from founders of Cafe Rio, which serves fresh made Italian food. That’s going to be a stop on my trip! Thanks for the helpful Provo tips.
