Chinese 5 Spice Sweet Potato Paleo Waffles

I wanted waffle plates for my Cuisine Art Panini Press/Griddle for years.  I mean years.  I registered for them for my wedding and like the majority of our registry, it was never bought or gifted.

5 years later it's Christmas 2016 and my husband is telling me not to open any packages from Amazon.

Well, this happened...

Hilarity Aside. I was thrilled to finally get my waffle plates!
