Happy Sunday! I've dubbed this week unofficially "strawberry week". We got the most beautiful, flavorful, and aromatic strawberries at a roadside stand last Saturday. Since then, it's been all strawberries all the time.
I've added strawberries to all kinds of meals--rice & beans, roasted potatoes, roasted veggies, even tacos. Yes, even tacos.
But, oh my stars...they made amazing waffles....such amazing waffles.
Well, I've got another strawberry one for ya here....strawberry kombucha.
Kombucha. My new favorite beverage. Have you tried it? The wonderfully vinegary, fermented, flavored drink full of bubbles, live bacteria, and microscopic yeast.
Doesn't that description just sound appetizing? ;)
Well, years ago, I'd have quickly turned up my nose at even the thought of kombucha....and grabbed a Diet Coke with some Snackwell's instead.
So glad I've matured....at least in a few foodie ways.
This was the first time I'd actually used a 1 for 1 gluten free flour blend, one which is brand new on the market. I was pleasantly surprised at both the flavor and the texture of the blend. It was very much like regular flour! I'd honestly avoided these gluten free blends for many years. I'd heard too many cooking horror stories about the flavor and texture being "off". But, I was pleasantly surprised. It's opened up a new world for me recipe wise.
A world I'll be sharing with you very very soon. I'll keep this one short and sweet...so much quicker to get to these fabulous strawberry-rific waffles.
What's your favorite strawberry recipe? Do you have a recipe you'd like me to either remake (to become either gluten or grain free) or to create in general? Leave me a comment and let me know what kind of waffles you'd like to see!!
