Pecan Waffles with Honey Butter

If you don't have a waffle iron, it's time to buy one. Waffles are so quick, easy, and versatile, your weekends will be forever changed for the better. You substitute the chopped pecans for chocolate chips, blueberries, chopped ham or bacon, or any number of other things. They're also good plain with just the standard butter and syrup, or berries and cream, whatever floats your boat.
