White beans, Yankee beans, Boston beans, navy beans, lima beans, kidney beans, cannellini, and fazolia beans. Wow! So many different types of beans! Does it happen to you sometimes that you get to the store and, after looking at the huge selection of beans, you just pick one because it looks like the one you remember from the recipe picture? And then you are leaving the store wondering if you chose the right one? Used to happen to me all the time! Well, that was before I started using the Notes app on my iPhone 🙂
The word “waffle”, as we know it today, first appeared in English language in a 1725 printing of Court Cookery, by Robert Smith (according to the Wikipedia article). Did you know that there are more than 10 different types of waffles? Well, let’s start with this recipe. It is based on the Belgian style of waffle, the most popular one here in North America.
