If you thought your waffle maker could just make plain old waffles, think again! Get creative with theseeight waffle maker recipes.

Do you have a spacious kitchen with loads of space for formal dishes and every appliance you could think of, or do you have a closet-sized kitchen with barely enough room for a microwave and coffee pot? I live in San Francisco, and “spacious” is not a word you usually think of when you are referring to houses here. We are packed in like sardines, and we have to make the most of every square foot. Our kitchen isn’t too bad after we remodeled it a few years ago, but space is still a luxury. Every dish and appliance in our house really needs to earn its keep.

Except for the waffle maker.

Fun ideas! I just said to my husband that we haven’t eaten enough waffles this year. I am remedying that by hosting a waffle brunch with friends this weekend. We are going to put that waffle maker to work!
