Perfectly nice waffles (spontaneous waffles)
Sometimes, I know, its hard to plan ahead. You wake up in the morning and youre craving waffles. Right now. Right away. At times like these, its good to have a reliable quick and easy waffle recipe on hand.

1 cup flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
cup + 2 Tbsp. milk
2 Tbsp. light sour cream
2 Tbsp. butter
time 15 minutes
serves 2
Preheat the waffle iron (lightly grease it with cooking oil). Melt the butter, then let it cool for at least ten minutes. Meanwhile, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl and stir it all together. Add the egg, pour in the milk, toss in the sour cream, and stir well. Finally, mix in the cooled melted butter. At this point, your waffle maker should be good to go. Ladle the batter into the waffle grids and cook for 3-5 minutes.

Strawberry sauce
Because in my book, waffles aren't waffles if they're served with anything besides strawberries.

2 cups strawberries, frozen is fine
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. sugar

3 easy ways to liven up your waffle batter...

Substitute half the white flour with wheat flour (my favorite waffle). 
Add tsp. vanilla extract to the batter
Add 1 tsp. ground cinnamon to the batter

In a small saucepan, add all the ingredients and cook over medium heat. Stir it up, cover, and cook for five minutes or so, until the mixture is bubbly and the strawberries are soft. Break up the strawberries with a spoon, taste and add more sugar if desired. Serve over waffles, with plenty of fresh whipped cream.
