Green Chili and Cheese Cornbread Waffles with Raspberry Preserves

Let’s get all springy and Mother’s Day-y today. Brunch eats, breakfast in bed eats, sweet and savory eats, topped with fruity goodness and gorgeous spring flowers. Uh-huh.

So, Mother’s Day is coming. And guess what? It’s my very first one as a mother. Still feels totally weird typing that out, but I’m pretty pumped about it. I always thought that I would want to be treated like a princess on Mother’s Day, in my PJs taking a day off. But, I think I would actually prefer spending the day with my little bambino. My family. My heartbeat. Ya know?

I’m having visions of the perfect MORNING off having coffee brought to me after I sleep in, then heading to the Pike Place flower festival and just walking around seeing the sights. (Ahem… husband, are you reading?)

In the spirit of Mother’s Day this year, I’m sharing a very special waffle recipe from my favorite new mother and best friend. Her baby turned 1 month old the other day! We’ve been friends for…. sheesh…. forever, and she has made a version of these cheddar cornmeal waffles for me numerous times over the years. Now, I’m making them for her. With green chiles added and topped with raspberry preserves. Happy Mother’s Day, my friend.

For some reason, Mother’s Day eats just mean brunch to me. Right? Doesn’t it just seem like it HAS to be brunch? For this Mom-day inspired brunch, I topped savory waffles with Bonne Maman raspberry preserves. Bonne Maman is absolutely delicious, and made from simple, wholesome ingredients that I would find in my kitchen. No high fructose corn syrup or additives. I love that the preserves are Non-GMO verified, and are as close to homemade as you can buy in the grocery store.
