Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I couldn’t let the holiday pass without one last red velvet recipe. I’m a little obsessed! 🙂  Actually, I had this crazy idea pop into my head, and I decided to go with it.  I’m thinking I’m actually pretty crazy at this point, but we’ll see how this goes and how I am doing at the end of this week! 🙂

You see, last year around this time on Rachael Ray’s talk show, she had waffle week.  I remember watching, and remember wanting to make every single recipe.  But then time went by, and I didn’t try a single one of those waffle recipes.  So imagine my surprise – and excitement! – when I saw that waffle week is back.  And when I saw that the first recipe she was doing was red velvet waffles, I had this idea come to me.  Of course I wanted to make the red velvet waffles, (obsessed), but what if I basically cooked along with Rachael during waffle week?  What if I made all of those waffle recipes the same day that she makes them, and then post them the next day?  Yeah, crazy, right?

Well, I’m doing it.  I’ve bought all of the ingredients, although I don’t have the recipes yet, since they aren’t posted on the website until after the show airs.  So I’m really flying by the seat of my pants here.  It’s exciting, though – and I’m super excited to make every single one of these waffle recipes this week!

Up first, Red Velvet.  Perfect, considering today is Valentine’s Day.  I know it’s a little to late for you to whip these up for your valentine for breakfast, but believe me – these would be delicious any day of the year.  And not just for breakfast.  My husband and I ate these up so fast – there were no words while we were eating.  And we both basically licked our plates clean.  And then both declared that we’d eat that cream cheese drizzle on regular waffles.  Or pancakes.  Or straight from the bowl.  Seriously – SO good.

My hints for this one – make sure you don’t over-fill your waffle maker.  I made quite a mess, and spent a good part of the afternoon scrubbing off red batter from every nook of my waffle maker.  On the show, Rachael mixed her berries with liquor, but I simply sugared mine.  And I couldn’t find a pomegrante, so we just went with strawberries and raspberries.

I’m so excited to see how the week turns out – if this first recipe is any indication, we are all in for a big treat this week!!

  28. No words while eating is always a good thing. These sound heavenly and I love the berry topping!

  29. Dani says:

    Red velvet cake mix from a box is not culinary artistry. I really like this idea, but I’ll be coming up with my own waffle recipe. This is why I dislike Rachel Ray in general.

  30. PureX says:

    I’ve been eyeballing these waffles for some time now… Need make them!

  31. Kasey Spickard says:

    I had to double the cream cheese in the drizzle recipe as it was too thin/runny and added extra powdered sugar. I’d say half the milk in the recipe. Overall, delicious!
