Buttermilk waffles with strawberry syrup

Celebrate your squad with a Galentine's Day brunch

By Jane Hudson

Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, introduced us to the idea of “Galentine’s Day” in the show “Parks and Recreation,” and we just love the idea of taking a day to celebrate your best girl friends.

An easy, chic brunch is the perfect get-together. Serve it up yourself, or ask each of your friends to bring a dish.


What to serve:

An easy quiche


  • • 2 cups milk

  • • 4 eggs

  • • 3/4 cup biscuit baking mix

  • • 1/4 cup of butter, softened

  • • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • • 1 10 ounce package chopped frozen broccoli, thawed and drained, or substitute fresh spinach

  • • 1 cup cubed cooked ham

  • • 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 10 inch quiche dish.

In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, baking mix, butter and parmesan cheese. Batter will be lumpy. Stir in broccoli or spinach, ham and Cheddar cheese. Pour into prepared quiche dish.

Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, until eggs are set and top is golden brown.




Buttermilk waffles with strawberry syrup

If you’re going to do Galentine’s Day Leslie Knope-style, you’ve just got to have waffles. Yield: 4 waffles Prep Time: 45 min Cook Time: 5 min


For the waffles:

  • • 3 large eggs, separated

  • • 2 cups buttermilk, divided

  • • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • • 2 Tablespoons sugar

  • • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

For the syrup:

  • • 3 cups hulled, diced strawberries

  • • 3/4 cup sugar

  • • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Equipment: Waffle maker


Make the waffles:

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks with 1 cup of buttermilk.

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the eggs, stirring just until combined.

Add the remaining 1 cup buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla extract to the bowl, stirring just until combined. (The batter will be lumpy.)

Add the egg whites to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat the egg whites at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter then cover the batter and allow it to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. While the batter rests, make the strawberry syrup. (Recipe follows.)

When ready to serve, preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s directions and lightly grease it with cooking spray. Pour a portion of the batter into the heated waffle iron and cook the waffle to your desired doneness. Top the waffles with strawberry syrup and serve immediately.

Make the syrup:

In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce it to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries are soft and the liquids have thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.

Transfer the syrup to a serving bowl and set it aside to cool slightly. The syrup will thicken as it cools. (Optional: If you prefer a thinner syrup, strain the cooked mixture through a mesh sieve to remove larger pieces of strawberry.)


Fresh fruit skewers with vanilla-honey yogurt dip


  • • 10 long wooden skewers, cut in half

  • • Assorted fruit

  • • 2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt (if using plain, add 1 tsp. vanilla)

  • • 1/4 cup honey

  • • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a medium bowl, stir together yogurt, honey and cinnamon. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, if you have it. Thread fruit onto skewers and serve with yogurt dip.


A light and classy cocktail

This Campari cocktail uses blood oranges which gives it a beautiful color, perfect for Galentine’s Day!

Sicilian 75


  • • 1 oz. fresh blood orange juice, plus slice for garnish

  • • 1 oz. gin

  • • 1/2 oz. simple syrup

  • • 1/4 oz. Campari

  • • 2 oz. dry champagne


Combine juice, gin, syrup and Campari in an ice-filled shaker. Shake and strain into a flute. Top with champagne and garnish with orange slice. Makes one cocktail.
