There are some things in life you just HAVE to do.
If you find a dress at Anthropologie worth loving, and it’s on sale for $30 plus it fits you perfectly, you have to buy it. If you’re feeling down in the dumps, and you’re wearing sunglasses instead of make-up then you should get pizza and breadsticks for lunch. You should eat it with your BFF who won’t judge your lack of mascara.
If your sister is in town, and you just bought strawberries at the farmer’s market, then you have to make her waffles with berries and whipped cream. Let’s drink coffee too. We’ll pretend it’s warmth is tricking our bodies into thinking it’s not 90 out.
These waffles are frat boys. They are beer for breakfast. But mostly, the beer has a way of making these so light! The bubbles get all up in the batter making these similar to these yeast waffles, but without the wait. Mix it up, get waffle-y, no big deal.

- Make a well in the dry ingredients. Slowly pour wet ingredients into the well, whisking until smooth and barely any lumps remain.
