Valentine's Day Heart Waffles

Since moving to Japan, I've had to get a little creative when it comes to Holiday treats. As you may have seen from my kitchen post, I do not currently have an oven.

I've since acquired a tiny toaster oven (think Easy Bake!) but any holiday treats requiring baking are usually put on the back burner. Literally.

When I started seeing all the fun waffles on Pinterest, I knew I was on to something! We *love* breakfast at our house and especially waffles. While I was laying in bed last night I thought it would be fun to make strawberry waffles in the morning. Then it hit me that with a few simple cuts, we could make them into hearts for Valentine's Day.

After making these this morning, my husband turned to me and said, Oh, this is something you saw on Pinterest, right? (Can you see how it's changed my life??) I told him that I'd thought of it while falling asleep last night. He said this was "totally Pinterest-worthy", so here it is!

All I did was cut a small V shape in the top center and then shave the rounded edges off the bottom half.

For this one, I didn't add quite enough batter to fill the waffle iron, so I didn't really have to trim the bottom half. I just added the V cut at the top.

We added strawberries into the batter and made a simple strawberry syrup on the stove top. The only thing we were missing was some yummy whipped cream on top! Next time, right?

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day!!
