Will It Waffle?: 53 Irresistible and Unexpected Recipes to Make in a Waffle Iron (Will It...?) Cover Image

Published: Workman Publishing Company - August 26th, 2014

How many great ideas begin with a nagging thought in the middle of the night that should disappear by morning, but doesn t? For Daniel Shumski, it was: "Will it waffle?" Hundreds of hours, countless messes, and 53 perfected recipes later, that answer is a resounding: Yes, it will! Steak? Yes! Pizza? Yes! Apple pie? Emphatically yes. And that s the beauty of being a waffle iron chef waffling food other than waffles is not just a novelty but an innovation that leads to a great end product, all while giving the cook the bonus pleasure of doing something cool, fun, and vaguely nerdy (or giving a reluctant eater your child, say a great reason to dig in). Waffled bacon reaches perfect crispness without burned edges, cooks super fast in the two-sided heat source, and leaves behind just the right amount of fat to waffle some eggs. Waffled Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Pressed Potato and Cheese Pierogi, and Waffled Meatballs all end up with dimples just right for trapping their delicious sauces. A waffle iron turns leftover mac n cheese into Revitalized Macaroni and Cheese, which is like a decadent version of a grilled cheese sandwich with its golden, buttery, slightly crisp exterior and soft, melty, cheesy interior."

Esther Earl Day

Esther Earl was John Green's muse for writing The Fault In Our Stars, and her birthday falls on 8/3. The following is from her foundation's website (This Star Won't Go Out):

Before her death, author and friend John Green told Esther that he and his brother Hank wanted to celebrate her birthday as long as there were vlogbrothers videos, and that the videos on that day could be about whatever she chose. After some reflection, Esther decided she wanted it to be a day to celebrate love for family and friends. So, since 2010, August 3rd or Esther Day has become a holiday that reminds us to verbalize our love for friends and family, the important people in our lives who we might not remember to say “I love you” to very often.

Both Phoenix Books locations will be handing out paper stars to anyone who wants to celebrate. Participants can write a message of love on these stars and are encouraged to take photos with their stars and post to social media outlets with the #EstherDay marker.
