I’ve been searching for the perfect first Red Velvet post and by George I think I’ve found it…SCORE!
Scouring the web about a week ago, I landed on my good friend, Jennifer’s Blog, JG Runs the Kitchen and low and behold she had a recipe for Red Velvet Waffles. I literally died and went to food heaven, because if you’ve ever eaten her cooking you know she’s a BEAST in the kitchen. Too late fellas, she’s already boo-ed up with “The Beau”, but I digressed. I suddenly felt inspired; I’ve never made waffles from scratch. I’m a Bisquick man myself, but I decided to give the recipe a try with my own twist. The end result was Double-Dipped Fried Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles with a Pecan Honey Cream Cheese Butter.
This started off as a meal for 3 people at the Creative Hostel where I reside whenever I’m working in Miami. By the end of the night 7 people had consumed every bite of my food. My friends and I were up to 3AM discussing our dreams, obstacles, the journey and defining our dash. Will Smith’s video about Mindset Wisdom provided the perfect background for our conversation. Its a must see…and I’ll leave it at that.
I sit in awe when I look at the talent that surrounds me. We all encourage each other, but most of all hold each other accountable to our dreams. Stepping out on faith is difficult but you have to start somewhere. Have you taken your first step…
