You know what one of the benefits of getting married is? New kitchen gadgets!!!!!!!! Oh yea, and gaining a lifelong partner to share the joys of life and family and all that jazz. But seriously, so many gifts. It's like Christmas times a gazillion. So the next few posts will be of me trying out all of the new goodies. Like our waffle iron:

- 1 c. flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 c. milk
- 1/2 tbs. melted butter
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tbs. sugar
- 1 egg, separated
- Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Beat whites until stiff; set aside.
- Add egg yok, butter and milk to the dry ingredents an dmix thoroughly.
- Stir 1/4 of the egg white into the batter to lighten it and gently fold in the remaining egg white.
- Bake according to directions for waffle baker.
- Coconut, nuts, or chocolate chips can be sprinkled over top before baking. I chose to have slices of bananas and milk chocolate chips top one of my waffles, and strawberry sauce topped the other. Strawberry sauce was made by reducing down 1/4 c. strawberries, 1/8 c. water, 3tbs sugar, and 1 tsp orange liquor in a sauce pan over medium-low heat.
