Waffles are one of my favorite things to eat. I always order them over pancakes or French Toast when I’m at breakfast or brunch. The reason is that I can’t make them at home. I don’t have a waffle iron, let alone a waffle recipe or mix.
That’s why I was excited for this month’s Secret Recipe Club pair-up with Rebekah from Making Miracles. Rebekah had not one, but two recipes for waffles! I chose to go with her “Classic Waffles” because Not only does this recipe whip up in a jiffy, but it is a tried and true “Family Favorite” from Rebekah’s family.
This recipe also gave me an excuse to use my parents’ “Circus Waffle Iron” to make some mini-waffles. Because of that, I halved the recipe and still was able to get around 12 mini waffles from it.
Check out Making Miracles for more about Rebekah’s family, food, and memories and the Secret Recipe Linkup below to so who else participated in this month’s reveal.
For Today’s Tuesday Tea, I have a great giveaway, brought to you by the wonderful folks at MarketSpice in Washington state.
A little bit about MarketSpice:
- The history of MarketSpice can be traced back to a small tea and spice shop established in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in 1911, where they are still located. (How did I miss them during my Seattle trip?)
- They offer nearly 200 teas, continually developing new blends which are made daily in small batches.
- MarketSpice Cinnamon Orange Tea is their “Signature” blend of black tea with spices and flavorings, though it also comes in different tea bases now.
- In addition to teas, MarketSpice has a large assortment of spices as well as their own candle line, honeys, cookies, hot chocolate blends, chocolates, drink mixes, sauces, and mints.
I’ve also received some great looking teas from them to taste and share with you. Unfortunately I’ve only had the chance to try one so far (Knockout Tea), but it was quite delicious! I’ll be sure to report back with my thoughts on all of them, including: Winter Spice, Sunset in Seattle, White Chocolate Mocha, Market Chai, Knockout, Jamaican Fruit, Pike Place Market Anniversary, Egg Nog, Emerald Surprise, and Jingle Bell.

Ready for Drinking
The first smell I get when about to sip this tea reminds me of trail mix with dried, juicy fruit. The taste itself is more mild and clean. The taste opens with guava and then leads into the white peony. The aftertaste is a mix of strawberry and guava bouncing back and forth and finishing with strawberry.
Flavors: Guava, Strawberry
White Guava tea brews a light infusion with a beautiful, rich scent and a delicate tropical flavor. It comprises an exotic blend of white peony loose-leaf tea leaves, strawberries, ginger, and natural flavors, and as with all of our white teas, White Guava tea prepares nicely both hot and iced.
