Cherry Sauce

2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) pitted cherries (10-ounce package)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


2 cups white whole-wheat flour (see Note)
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups low-fat or nonfat buttermilk
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


To prepare cherry sauce: Combine cherries, water, honey, cornstarch, lemon juice and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Set aside.
To prepare waffles: Preheat oven to 200°F; place a large baking sheet on the center rack.
Whisk whole-wheat flour (see Measuring Tip), cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Lightly beat eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk, oil and vanilla; whisk until well blended. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.
Preheat a Belgian-style waffle iron. Lightly coat it with cooking spray. Add enough batter to cover about two-thirds of the surface (about 2/3 cup); distribute evenly with a spatula. Close and cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the waffles to the baking sheet to keep warm until ready to serve; do not stack. Repeat with the remaining batter, using more cooking spray as needed. Warm the cherry sauce over medium heat until hot and bubbling; serve with the waffles.

Cornmeal adds appealing texture to these waffles and hot cherry sauce is a tasty, nutrient-rich alternative to maple syrup. Any fine cornmeal works in the recipe. If you want to use whole-grain cornmeal, look for finely ground cornmeal labeled “whole-grain” or “stone-ground” in the natural-foods section of the supermarket or at natural-foods stores.

For pimples: Garlic is well known antibiotic treatment for pimples and acne. Dilute some lemon juice with water and dab on pimples to kill germs, cool inflammation and improve blood circulation. Apply the grated apple mixed with a little honey to get rid of pimples. Or you can even dab a small amount of toothpaste (paste, not gel) on pimples before bed; this helps dry out the pimples.
