Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? I personally conclude that that depends on what is considered “good”. If french fries are the item to be evaluated, then I say too much of those scrumptious greasy potatoes are not beneficial in any way. So, what do I mean?
I believe that pumpkin is an extremely valuable ingredient to have on hand, since it has great versatility in countless recipes and it is not possible to have too much pumpkin. I have not encountered a pumpkin recipe that I dislike. Now, someone may counter that opinion. This is usually in part to their dislike of the pumpkin flavor, like my husband. I still have not succeeded in having him sample my pumpkin concoctions due to how “picky” he is (That is how I phrase it. I feel he is missing out on the finer things in life). So, I say to all of those out there who indulge in pumpkin, I am about to excite your palate.
Here is the first of a 3 part recipe collection on pumpkin waffles. This first recipe is an all natural, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pumpkin Waffle recipe that is absolutely mouthwatering. For those gluten and dairy intolerant, you will not be disappointed, but ecstatic about a moist recipe that is sure to fulfill! (The next recipe will be dairy-free, and the last recipe will contain gluten and dairy)
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pumpkin Waffles
