2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
Secret ingredient #1: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Secret ingredient #2: 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon


This recipe will make about 10-12 waffles. The perfect amount to impress any roommates that straggle in, or to feast on if you’ve pulled an all-nighter. 

1) Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. I like it really hot.  I know, I know. That’s what she said.  Now would be a good time to make sure you push the iron far enough back on the counter to avoid any burns through accidental contact of your hands...or other areas

2) In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar, and I do mean sift.  Don’t just throw it all in the bowl. You have to give it a little attention. Mix it up a little.  Don’t just set it aside.

3) In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Here’s my trick. If your girl’s still sleeping, separate the eggs first.  Whip the egg whites like they’ve been naughty until soft peaks form.  Stir in the milk, yolks, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix together until combined, but don’t overdo it.  Too much attention and they’ll come out tough instead of crisp and slightly chewy.  

4) Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Don’t get burned.  Cook the waffles until golden. Refrain from getting distracted with extra-culinary activities.

5) Serve before she or the waffles get cold.

In Catching Liam, Jillian’s style is all about comfort.  Even when she’s out for the night, she needs her wedges to be comfortable while looking hot.  You’re more likely to catch her sporting a t-shirt and skinny jeans than dresses to class.  And she’s a little sentimental (MeMa’s dish towels not pictured.)
