Waffatopia Joins Media Farmers Market Line-Up!

Belgian Waffles at the Market!

Waffatopia waffles with fillingSyrup? Not here! At Waffatopia™, these specialty Belgian sugar waffles are made from scratch in their artisan kitchen by owners Brian and Andrea Polizzi, who first experienced this centuries-old street treat in Brussels. These special waffles, made from dough (and not poured batter), delight the senses with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and caramelized Belgian Pearl Sugar, which is imported from Europe. Take home either the Classic, or the Sweet Surrender Waffle stuffed with chocolate.  Waffles are individually baked, wrapped and ready to enjoy with simple heating for breakfast or a special treat with family. They also make a wonderfully unique “foodie” gift.  Learn more at or

Basil Lemon Smoothie

basil 7.17.13With abundant basil in season, and hot days as well, try sweet basil and tart lemon mixed together in a cold smoothie for a quick cool-down! Here’s an easy recipe from Food Network’s website.

Sweet Basil Smoothie
1 1/4 cups plain yogurt
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups Lemon Simple Syrup
(recipe follows)
1 cup ice

In a blender, combine the yogurt, basil, Lemon Simple Syrup, and ice. Blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into frosted glasses and serve immediately.

Lemon Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and lemon zest over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Take the pan off the heat and allow the syrup to cool, about 20 minutes. Strain before using.

Yield: 4 (6-ounce) servings

P.S. Hillside Farm reminded us that basil flowers are as edible as the leaves, so if your stalk is topped with little basil flowers, include those, too!
