How to say “waffles” in Spanish

Mexico and South America are the top destinations for American travelers because they’re so close. So if you’re in a Spanish speaking country and you’re in the mood for some good waffles (by the way, let me know if you find a Waffle House, that would be sweet!) it’s easy to order some up.

The amazing great tasting Waffle House!

To say it in Spanish you’ll say waffles, but pronounce it differently and it should sound like wah-flehs or wah-flays depending on how you read my writing. Now that’s the easiest way and almost everybody should understand you.

If you want to get all technical you can use the actual Spanish word for waffles which is gofre and sounds like go-freh or “go-fray“. To take it a step further and order some Belgium waffles you can say waffles de Bélgica or gofres de Bélgica. Saying French toast in Spanish is another story…

How to boil eggs (for Easter)

Boiled Easter Eggs

Decorating Easter eggs can be fun, but the first step is getting them ready. Boiling an egg is as simply as ABC. Here are the steps:

  1. Get the eggs out of the carton and ready for action.
  2. Place your desired number of eggs into a pot that you’ll use on the stove top.
  3. Now you need to add water, make sure to add enough to cover all of the eggs.
  4. Bring the water to boil without covering the pot (this will help avoid the eggs from cracking.)
  5. Egg boiling tips – Now if you want your egg softly boil, you need to boil it only for 5 minutes. But if you want it hard boiled, you need to boil it for 5-10 minutes. I usually go to 7 minutes.
  6. After boiling the eggs, remove the excess water from the pot and run cool water on top of the just boiled to cool down the eggs before you start to decorate or peel them.
