I can’t believe it’s June already. Maybe it’s because after a small and glorious spurt of sunshine, we’ve been back to grey cloudy skies for the last few weeks, so all of my summer anticipation disappeared. My grand plans to BBQ the bejeezus out of everything had to grind to a halt, since if I can’t BBQ it in a tank top, I don’t want to BBQ it at all. (Kidding. I’ll settle for a t shirt).

sticky toffee date waffles

I’ve been working my way through Smitten Kitchen’s new cookbook, and one of the recipes that immediately caught my eye were these sticky toffee waffles.

Somehow I blinked and I missed the rest of 2017. I moved houses, and the act of transporting my various worldly possessions from point A to point B mysteriously ate up all of November and December.

Um, yeah, if I shove it in there..” It’s taken me a while to get settled, but I’ve definitely started testing out the oven and the stove and I’m delighted to report that I’ve already burned a pan and produced an inedible brick of dough that was supposed to be bread, which means I’m trying hard enough.

pumpkin waffles

I have a not-so-secret, deep-set, bordering-on-the-obsessive love for pumpkin. Yes, I know it’s unoriginal, and that half of the country is also obsessed with pumpkins (mostly the female half). But I don’t care. I love how pumpkin spices up so well to make it taste exactly like fall. I love how it keeps things moist and gives baked goods this nice warm orange colour. I love that it gives me something to look forwards to when the sun decides it’s done with us and it’ll see us next year (thanks, Pacific Northwest).
