“We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.” – Leslie Knope from the show Parks and Recreation. This is really about the truest quote that I have seen recently. Work is important, yes but friends and well… food are the true zest of life. My friends and family are my backbone and support me in every decision (good or bad) that I have made. The perfect combination is a brunch or a breakfast with those people I care so much about. Today, I made my boyfriend some waffles and thought of this quote. I hope you all enjoy work but remember what should come first: Friends and Waffles!

- 3 eggs (separated)
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup vegetable oil – for a healthier alternative, use applesauce
- 2 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- Dash of cinnamon
Beat egg whites with an electic mixer. Add sugar and beat until the mixture has stiff peaks.
Beat egg yolks in a separate bowl with milk and oil.
Combine flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in egg whites.
Add ¾ cup mixture to the preheated waffle iron to cook per manufacturer directions
Tip: to keep warm until serving, place on a baking sheet in an oven set to a very low temperature. I used 170 degrees Fahrenheit
