I wouldn’t trade this crazy traveling lifestyle I live for anything. In the last few years, I’ve added over 20 countries to my passport but I think I just had my busiest travel season yet. After spending three weeks cruising Antarctica exploring places like South Georgia Island, The Falkland Islands and meeting some of the cutest sea lion pups and penguins ever, I was home all of 5 hours before heading to Park City, Utah for a well deserved family ski trip. It was time for vacation with my favorite boys! Upon returning from there, I promptly boarded a plane bound for The Big Apple – so basically, my life is a constant crazy whirlwind.

While I enjoy every minute of this hectic life, I do find myself craving the normalcy of home from time to time, especially whipping up delicious meals for my boys. It’s hard to believe, but I actually miss cooking when I travel. And what is more normal and satisfying than a family-friendly Sunday brunch?

But of course, we can’t go getting too normal around here. This isn’t Stepford after all and we’re a family that likes to color outside of the lines. I like to think that my recipe for Homemade Grapefruit Waffles using Sweet Scarletts is just the right amount of outside the lines to stay family friendly. I know what you might be thinking, “Grapefruit in a waffle?!?” But surprisingly grapefruit adds just the right amount of sweet citrus flavor without being all in your face about it, forgive the pun.

If you do need just a bit more sweetness, I suggest a smidgeon of honey drizzled on top with added fresh grapefruit.

[yumprint-recipe id=’36’]Tip: I like to lay the waffles out on a cooling rack instead of stacking them up as they finish. This keeps them perfectly crispy until you’re ready to enjoy them. I also recommend making extra of these and storing them in the freezer for busy weekday mornings or crazy travel days.

  1. I’ve never thought of combining grapefruit with waffles before! That seems awesome. They’re both awesome breakfast foods so I’m sure they would taste fabulous!
