Not sure I see the connection. I heard pancakes and french toast, and now waffles?


Maple syrup versus the dutch 'stroopwafels'. I know it is being translated as Caramel Cookie Waffles, but it is about the taste of the syrup inside. Nothing beats the stroopwafel taste imho.

But of course you may - although just being a meshuggene is better - anyone call you a shiksa - give me a call and I'll sort them out!!!

Probably been there 10 or 12 times. :) Samples are free!

There is a new outlet at Great World City. Hoping it will do well here but not sure -- certanly head and shoulders above Haagen Dasz which is a made up name from Pillsbury. I received a scholarship from Ben Cohen in college, believe me they are real people.

I swear I posted this already, where did it go?

I love stroopwafels too. Having layover-ed at Schiphol a dozen times and have eaten my fair share. Not sure they can be used the same ways as maple syrup though: do you ever use them to glaze a ham? Sweeten your coffee? Drizzle over warm Brioche Bread pudding?

The syrup inside a stroopwafel is wonderful, but is it maple? It is caramel, isn't it?

I'm thinking cooking is not among your many talents (grilling does not count...) [-X

I also think this is perhaps the silliest argument in the whole wide world. :)

If breakfast at Denny's is American, then let me say that I loved it! Greasy or whatever, its yummy to indulge in once in a while.

Ah yes! The diner breakfast. I know it quite fondly.

I'm definitely carrying around an extra 5 lbs of past indescretions.

All I can tell you is, in this country, you have to make your own. Nobody can do it right.

If anyone answers Denny's, it's pistols at dawn.


Sapph,

You must have missed this warning. This is where you and I diverge... :shooting:

I had a huge omlette filled with onions, peppers, jalapenos, and some chopped thai basil for diner last night.

I wonder where that subconscious craving came from...

Aww Ma'am Viceroy, you and I cannot walk on separate paths now! In my defence I'll mention that we were on the road for like 5 hours, driving on the National Highway 1 in California. Starved and thirsty, Denny's was pretty good at that time. My weakness - hash browns! =P~

Give her a break -- I've resorted to Denny's in similar circumstances. I mean, how bad could it possible be?

The differene is, I hate it even more after every time. :P
