Easy Solutions

The eggnog waffles are delicious, but adding buttered pecans and warm maple syrup make them beyond delectable.

Also, my grandmother always made a sampler of whatever she was preparing, and I'm no different. So, for your test waffle, if you're looking for a brown, crisp waffle, turn the waffle iron to the highest setting and cook an additional 30 seconds.
