you guys, I think this is my favorite batch of ep's EVER! Thanks for nominating my scones!
What made this batch extra special was the personal stories connected to each recipe..Thanks so much for the EP nomination, this was a fab 'birthday' surprise for Panfusine, the FB foodie blog which turned 1 yesterday.
I'll take the Vaffler, if it is still available. Sounds really yummy!

Oh, thanks for taking my orphan vaffler, cookinginvictoria! I really hope you like them. :) And, if you wind up having to use a regular waffle iron instead of a heart waffler, I'd be quite interested to hear how they turn out.

I'm really looking forward to making this, fiveandspice. I think this will be part of our family's Mother's Day breakfast. However, I do not have a heart-shaped waffler. :( I will try it in our regular Belgian waffle maker. I also have a Pizzelle iron, and I was thinking of using that too, for a few vaffles just to see if it would work. Let me know if you have any further thoughts. Thanks!

I truly don't know how they'll turn out in a Belgian waffle maker, since I've never tried. A heart waffler makes somewhat thinner waffles, with less deep indentations. But, it's a good batter with good flavor, so hopefully it will work out. It would definitely be interesting to try it with the pizzelle iron too, they might turn out a bit like the Norwegian cookie called krumkake. Happy mother's day celebration to you!!!

Hi fiveandspice, just wanted to let you know how much my family enjoyed the Vafflers! I did use the Belgian waffle iron, and they turned out great. They had a nice height and were absolutely delicious. (If your recipe doesn't get chosen as an EP, I will post my full report as a comment underneath your original recipe.) Oh, and I did briefly try the pizzelle iron, but I must confess that that was a failed experiment. The Vafflers did not crisp up at all. I guess it is safe to say that the Vaffler batter is not a cookie batter! Anyway, thanks again for a delicious recipe.

I'm so happy you and your family liked them! Thank you very much for letting me know. And, I'm glad to know they work in a Belgian waffle iron. And, though waffle batter doesn't work as cookie batter - I suppose we should have suspected as much from the start - let me know if you ever want the recipe for the Norwegian version of pizelles (a much thicker batter than the waffle batter) - they're tasty too! :)
Are drbab's Magical, Marvelous, Memorable Cookies still up for grabs? I would love to make them. I already have pretzels in the cupboard -- one of my six year old daughter's favorite foods!
Meant to say too that this is a really marvelous batch of EP candidates. There are so many recipes here that I am planning to try. Thank you again so much for the finalist nod. I feel so ecstatic -- I have to keep pinching myself!
Sorry, aargersi snagged them just before you! If you do make them, please add your notes in the recipe's comments section. The only recipe still up for grabs is Vaffler - Norwegian Heart Waffles (which could probably be made in any kind of waffle maker, heart-shaped or otherwise).
I am making them right now! New neighbors moving in across the street so I thought fresh cookies would be a nice welcome! ps I ate some of the dough. That part of of the directions is completely unreasonable :-)

Sinfully Divine 'Lehiyam' truffles--please (hope they are still available)
Smoked tea caramels please! I just bought some smoked alder salt and these sound intriguing.

Thanks for choosing my caramels, Burnt! I suspected they'd be an "orphan," and now I know they are in good hands!
Well, you took the Soy Saucy chicken I had my eye on, so it was the least I could do! ;-) I got the smoked alder salt when I met Amanda last weekend at the new Whole Foods in Rockville. Got some other salts too. Amazing store!

If it's not spoken for I would love to test the 21 Years of Carrot Cake!

I'm flattered! If gluten free isn't your gig, this recipe can be easily made with half whole wheat and half bakers flour. I hope you enjoy!

I'll test the Spinach Gnocchi, please!

Ohhhh, I love mussels! I'll take "YaYa's Mussels with Fresh Fennel, Sausage, and Tomatoes". Yum!
