Take for example, National Waffle Day on August 24th. (You know, we adventure girls will be celebrating all things waffles here at our office!)
The Hotel Saugatuck in Saugatuck, Michigan, created a delicious Lemon Ricotta Waffle with Mascarpone and Bueberries recipe for us, and that they’re offering their hotel guests to mark the delicious holiday.
