This months challenge was ‘May Showers’… in Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Graduation Parties and any gathering that might be revolved around brunch! When I think of brunch, the first thing that comes to mind is the amazing waffle bar that my mother likes to make for special gatherings! She brings out the waffle iron and lays out quite the spread of toppings from fruit, nuts, whipped cream, chocolate chips, etc! It’s like a sundae on a waffle! So, for this month’s challenge I decided to spice up our normal waffles……and top mine with my 2 favorites; greek yogurt and strawberries! I hope you enjoy!
