I am not one for cooking fancy breakfasts. Most of the time the boys are stuck with cereal or oatmeal. Every once in a while though, I will do something nice for them and cook them something special for breakfast. These strawberry Belgian waffles are the perfect breakfast treat and are great now that strawberry prices are coming back down again here in Florida!
