carrot juice waffles

I am always honored when asked to write a guest post on another website. When Cara asked me, I was beside myself giddy, as she has not only become a good friend, I look up to her as an extremely talented and creative blogger. We met while participating in last year’s Vegan MoFo, and our friendship has grown over long emails and chats, our mutual love of cooking, and Wheel of Fortune.

One of my many favorite aspects of Cara’s website is her “People You Should Know” series. On Fridays, she features her favorites from around the web, and I am happy to be among them. A favorite aspect because the talents are varied and vast – and the people are all just like Cara – quality personalities who are lots of fun.

I created a recipe especially for Cara, and I used fresh juice…

I know, I know, I keep meaning to talk about my new juicer. Soon, I promise. It’s not even new anymore. I love it so.

Cara loves her waffles, so creating a new waffle recipe was what I kept coming back to. I make a recipe several times before posting it, so we were enjoying waffles many ways for a while – sweet, savory, as a sandwich… all of them good!


Please go visit my dear friend Cara, and see what I made for her.

Happy Friday everyone!

Holy wow those look incredible. What happened to your old juicer??? Did I miss that post? I knew she had a name!

nothing happened to the old girl, I still drag her out for juicing beets every now and then. I wanted an upgrade to a juicer that would effectively juice greens, including wheat-grass (effective meaning… it actually makes juice out of greens!). 😉 I have a post half written… I need to finish it. HAPPY FRIDAY Heather – hope you guys have a great weekend and I hope Jason is tip top shape soon! XO

This makes me want to dust off my juicer AND get out my new waffle maker. WOW, how creative!


10 spabettie April 20, 2012 at 10:22 am

thanks, Averie – definitely one of those multiple step recipes, but I think it’s worth it!

I am so, so happy that you introduced me to Fork and Beans/Cara as reading her “About” page and food philosophy has led me to believe that I should stalk her in a completely non-creepy way. Love it!


12 spabettie April 20, 2012 at 10:19 am

isn’t Cara wonderful? you will love her more and more as you get to know her – stalk away!


13 Cara April 20, 2012 at 11:41 pm

I prefer my stalkers to be creepy and have windowless white vans. Work on that, will you, Abby??? :)


14 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) April 20, 2012 at 8:39 am

Oh my gosh these are beautiful! I made a sweet bread with carrot juice that we really liked. I bet we would love these! I’m definitely heading over to check Cara’s blog out! Thank you for sharing her feature!

I hope you have a great weekend! Something tells me it will be busy for you, but really good! xoxo


15 spabettie April 20, 2012 at 10:19 am

I made a carrot bread once, too… I think I only used the pulp, though, can’t recall… you will love Cara – she is so fun and creative! and YEESSSS… we have a busy weekend and it is supposed to be SEVENTY degrees, yay! first thing in the morning I am helping my brother move (I know, the irony…) and then we go change the locks on our place!


16 Nikki FYC April 20, 2012 at 8:47 am

I’m pretty sure these are the most beautiful waffles I’ve ever seen. Heading over to Fork and Beans now to get the full story.


17 spabettie April 20, 2012 at 10:17 am

thank you, Nikki! and you will love it over there at Cara’s… 😀

Genius Strikes Again, story at eleven…


19 spabettie April 20, 2012 at 10:14 am

YOU are! 😀


20 beti April 20, 2012 at 2:16 pm

now this is an interesting breakfast, I’m trying to change the breakfast that I always eat (oatmeal or cereal) since it has become pretty boring, these waffles seem like a pretty good begining!


21 spabettie April 21, 2012 at 7:49 am

these are definitely not boring 😀


22 jobo April 20, 2012 at 2:56 pm

I love that you just whipped these up on the fly…seriously, how on earth do you do it? these look divine, yet again!!


23 spabettie April 21, 2012 at 7:49 am

weee! I don’t really know sometimes, inspiration hits in the most tasty ways!


24 Kim - Liv Life April 20, 2012 at 8:25 pm

The color of these beauties is simply wonderful! Wonder if I could get them past my not-so-carrot-loving teens!


25 spabettie April 21, 2012 at 7:45 am

I bet you could!? SO many parents have told me their kids love my spinach pancakes (bright green), so… I figure these may be the same?


26 Mom Foodie April 21, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I love the bright orange color!


27 spabettie April 21, 2012 at 7:44 pm

thanks – I love when the natural colors end up so vibrant! :)
