Blueberry Ricotta Waffles | Fabtastic Eats Hi July 1st. You got here rather quickly. Let’s slow down shall we? I’m not quite ready for labor day and all things pumpkin quite yet. Pump those breaks.

Are you loving every single aspect of Summer as much as I am? I expect that you totally are. Except for the crazy lady at Target the other day. She was going on and on about how she LOVES THE RAIN! Like, she actually said “I look forward to rain, and I just cant get enough of it.” Oomph. Like I said, crazy lady.

Blueberry Ricotta Waffles | Fabtastic Eats The days out here are SO much longer than on the east coast. That aspect has been blowing us away. It’s bright out by 4:30 every morning, and it stays that way until about 10:30 every night. Like legitimately bright. Kids are out playing so late because the sun is freaking still out! It’s insane. But a good insane, I love it.

Blueberry Ricotta Waffles | Fabtastic Eats Waffles! Blueberries. Oh my word, I just cannot stop eating fresh blueberries. Breakfast, lunch, and a late night snack all include them in one form or the other. Daily. Usually in their purest, perfection. I wicked love them. And these waffles? I wicked love them too!

Blueberry Ricotta Waffles | Fabtastic Eats They’re soft, but not soggy, not at all. They’re almost cake-like with fresh blueberries, a hint of orange (zest!), and drizzled with real maple syrup, (bonus points if you have blueberry maple syrup!)..brunch perfection! Add a side of bacon, hash-browns, maybe an egg or two..and don’t forget your Mimosa(s)!! 😉

    Michigan sits on the west side of the time zone, so it stays light out reallllly late here too. Like after I go to bed late. It’s awesome and pathetic at the same time. I love ricotta in pancakes, so I have to imagine these waffles are perfection!

      hahah it is awesome. Its usually bright out when I go to bed too, and always in the morning, I hardly ever see dark anymore! 😉 The ricotta is definitely a great addition!

    These waffles would be breakfast perfection even without the hash browns, bacon, or eggs! (Though the mimosa sounds good!) I have never made waffles with ricotta and it sounds delicious!
