Whither Eggo Waffles?

Kellogg's announced a shortage today in the supply of its Eggo Waffle. The company promises on its web site that, "Eggo is working around the clock to bring everyone's favorite waffles back to store shelves as quickly as possible. We hope to regain full distribution of Eggo products by the middle of 2010." 2010?! This might not be big news for some, but for others, who rely on a steady supply of frozen waffles and Nutella to get their kids off to school, this sounds a little worrisome. If you are such a person, fear not: the freezer aisle still holds frozen waffles from Van's Natural Foods, which come in healthy organic, wheat-free and hearty-oats versions. There are in-house organic waffles sold by Jewel, Dominick's and Whole Foods. But the truth is, these other waffles don't toast to the same golden hue. And the kids pining away for Eggos say the pictures on boxes of other waffles just don't look as appetizing.

Here's a tip a friend w/ frozen waffle addict kids gave me recently - try and find this stuff batter blaster which is organic instant pancake-waffle mix in a can. You just spray it on the pan, which the kids love. They really like them although I still prefer mine from scratch. Nice to give them something yummy and hot on these cold mornings!

When Brewers and Chefs Meet: A Love Story

By Brandy Gonsoulin

Jesse Valenciana knew what he wanted his mole-inspired stout to taste like, but he was a cook and home brewer, not a professional brewmaster. The co-founder of ManBQue, the local men's grilling and social club, and recent author needed a...
