Every Sunday for the last six months I have used a recipe in the cookbook for dinner. That is my most hectic day with church and family. Anyway, the recipes are great. We try a different country every week. My kids LOVE the Norwegian pancakes the best. The Finnish waffles are wonderful too. All of the recipes can be made in about thirty minutes--including cooking time. It is great. Most of the recipes are from northern and western Europe. But there are Chinese and Chilean recipes too. We try to find where an ancestor lived and try those recipes first.Pancake Day is fun too!
This book is TINY physically, which ends up being a good advantage. I gave it to my bro who bought some stupidly overpriced waffle maker, so I wanted to buy him 4 waffle books as a joke...well he took this book pretty seriously and thought this was an awesome gift and called me up about how awesome the recipes were from this book. There are tons of good recipes that fit in...wait for it... YOUR BACK POCKET.Imagine this scenario: You're in your mid twenties, a software engineer, and you're at another of those "mingling" parties with your work "friends", when suddenly one of them says "anybody want to see my waffle maker?" You immediately get to ONE UP everybody in the crowd (it's also at your own apartment party), so a wide grin spreads across your face. Whoever starts talking, you don't care, because as soon as they do....you pounce by starting on a loud wise-guy-accented drone: "Well look what we have here *pulls waffle booklet out of back pocket with two fingers, extra slyly*, could this be a RECIPE BOOKLET for that waffle maker? Step aside ladies, get me these ingredients, and let's get em waffles going!".My brother hasn't told me yet if this has happened, but I'm betting it will.Also the physical binding of the booklet is rather sturdy. My estimation for the lifespan of this book ranges between 50-150 years if maintained and oiled properly. The paper is of good quality stock with a smooth finish, indicating it has not been recycled and has a high alum content (so hippies beware), and the plastic cover is surely resistant to batter splatter, while still maintaining a great photo cover of pixellated text and foodstuffs.
okay most would say "wow-I paid 7 bucks for this little thing"-but the size makes it perfect for keeping right there without being in the way-and having in your pocket when you go shopping for ingredients.And remember-you are paying for information and content-not size. It has most recipe's in it and you can glean a lot of ideas for other creative recipes from it. My only complaint would be -maybe a better description of some of the items-as in what they look and taste like-or maybe a drwing. I am familiar with most different kinds of pancakes and waffles,but some just give the name, ingredients and methodology to make it without telling what the end product should be-so you don't know if you got it right or if it is something that you would like.Also with that you could be thinking that you are making something that you had had that had the same name, but will be totally different. BUT I still give this five stars and well worth the price just in the contents
I love this book so much that I got several copies as gifts! I've only made a few of the recipes, but they have been wonderful.Sunday breakfast was the one meal that my family really made a big deal about and pancakes and waffles were my absolute favorite things. I love that these recipes are so homey, but also something new... just simple variations that most people can easily do with what is in their kitchen.The one drawback is the the book is very small, which means no pictures and limited text. I wish there was a bit more description so I would know whether my pancakes are supposed to turn out thick or thin, hearty or fluffy.
Bought for a friend I visited who made waffles for breakfast one morning. This looked like a book that has recipes that make waffles for any meal!
