they took 8 hours.
I have this great cookbook, it is my secret weapon. It is called “How to Cook Everything”. And truly, it tells you how to cook everything. From beans to pizza dough to shrimp to lamb to curry to lentils to waffles. Really everything.
Goodbye, Betty Crocker and your indespensible cream of mushroom soup. Goodbye, Better Homes and Gardens and your handy tabbed dividers. Goodbye, Laurel’s Kitchen and your sanctimonious meatlessness. There’s a new book in town!
In the interest of honesty, this affair of mine is not so new. I have been sneaking around with this cookbook for a couple of years now. A rice and beans recipe here, a pasta dough recipe there, but today… I can no longer deny the importance of this book in my life. I can’t pretend that this is some passing fancy.
Today this book gave me waffles. Waffles that took 8 hours to bring to fruition. The best waffles I have ever made. (to be fair, I need to tell you that 7.75 hours were spent letting the waffle sponge rest and grow). But, without a doubt, the best waffles.
Truly, this is cookbook love.
