today was my husbands birthday and as customary for any birthday holder he got to choose what he wanted for dinner. Of course I was scared he would pick Meatloaf, I can't stand it. I have tried every fancy recipe or super simple and I just don't like it. But thankfully he chose Eggs Benedict and Waffles. So I decided that I must find a savory waffle to make. Searching on-line I found a great one from Williams-Sonoma, only to find out I already had the cookbook, Williams Sonoma Breakfast, Eggs Benedict on Savory Waffles
It was fantastic, the waffle had Gruyere, mashed potatoes and chives. The house still smells heavenly. I cooked them normally until very crispy and then topped it with thin sliced black forest ham, then added the eggs and the hollandaise. A little green onion and it was done. It was so good, I will make this again for sure.
and then for his cake, he wanted a German Chocolate Cake. There isn't anything very exciting about decorating it, no fancy tips to use or shaping it into a bunny. I used a wonderful recipe from David Lebovitz, this German Chocolate cake was so moist and delicious. Buttermilk is used in the cake batter and gives it a great tangy taste. David is a master at chocolate and desserts, you have to try it
