My husband calls me ‘Breakfast Princess‘ and although that sounds like a cute pet name, he’s really referring to the fact that I make breakfast for dinner about 3 times a week. Sometimes I make a quick healthy version of breakfast and other times I go all out. Many nights we have puffy Belgian waffles, and that’s what inspired this cake!

The idea came to me after I’d made a batch of Cabin Waffles, and my 8-inch cake pans were sitting on the counter right beside them. I noticed the pans were just a little larger than the waffles, and so the Belgian Waffle Cake experiment began. I whipped up some maple syrup cake batter and baked the waffles in three cake layers. I was surprised at how evenly the cakes baked. The waffles placed in the centers of the pans discourage crowning, so no leveling is required!

Dickens of a Christmas 2016 Franklin TN

DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS
Franklin TN – Dec. 10 – 11 2016
http://bit.ly/2faW0YWDickensFranklin

Dickens of a Christmas Franklin TN

Join us for the largest Christmas festival in Middle Tennessee! Step back in time with the Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County when Dickens of a Christmas returns to Franklin’s Main Street December 10-11, 2016.

Sponsored this year by Nissan, the 32nd annual free street festival will recreate the time of Charles Dickens using historic downtown Franklin’s Victorian architecture as the backdrop. Some 200 musicians, dancers and characters will fill the streets, including several from Charles Dickens’s stories. Expect to see and interact with the nefarious Fagin from Oliver Twist; Jacob Marley, Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim Cratchit with his parents from A Christmas Carol; and of course, a Victorian Father and Mother Christmas with treats for children.

As more attention is turned toward downtown Franklin in both the local and national press, we encourage festival goers to dress in Victorian costume and to add to the ambiance as they stroll the streets.

This year’s event will reprise a crowd favorite from last year: it WILL snow at Dickens of a Christmas! Come decked out in holiday style to capture that perfect family picture.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

-Favorite Victorian-era activities will return, including sugar plums and roasted chestnuts being sold on the street. Other food vendors will offer heartier old English fare.
-A variety of musical and dance performances will take place at 4th and Main, 2nd and Main, 1st and Main and at the Xfinity Stage on the Public Square. Aaron Shust will lead the Town Sing at 4 p.m. on Saturday the 10th
-Horse-drawn carriage rides on 3rd Ave North, sponsored by Beacon Capital Management, a petting zoo for children and live artisan demonstrations on 3rd Ave South, and more than 100 vendors offering holiday arts and crafts will line Main Street from Second to Fifth Avenues.
-A Victorian-themed Stilt Walker and Unicyclist roaming main street sponsored by The Heritage at Brentwood
-Each day will conclude with a town sing of classic Christmas carols.

Dickens of a Christmas will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 10, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 11. The event is free and open to the public; some attractions will involve a small fee.

Dickens of a Christmas Off site parking and shuttles will ONLY be available on Saturday, 12/10. Pick up locations include Church of the City (828 Murfreesboro Road) and Harlinsdale Farm (239 Franklin Road). The cost is $1/ each way and the shuttles will run 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Producing Dickens of a Christmas is just one of the many activities of The Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County. Since 1967 the non-profit group has been dedicated to protecting and preserving Williamson County’s historic, architectural and geographic resources; in short, saving the places that matter.

NBJ Reports Biscuit Love is headed to Franklin

NBJ Reports Biscuit Love is headed to Franklin

Biscuit Love, the former food-truck-turned-Gulch hotspot, plans to open soon in an historic mansion in downtown Franklin.

Bud Carman, the co-owner of the mansion, said he is under contract to sell the building to Fresh Capital, the real estate arm of local restaurant giant Fresh Hospitality. Biscuit Love, a Fresh Hospitality brand, will operate in the building, Carman said. The mansion is located at 132 Third Ave. S.

Carman did not disclose a purchase price, though the building was reportedly listed for sale at $2.5 million, according to The Tennessean.

Because she hasn’t yet signed a lease for the space, Biscuit Love co-owner Sarah Worley declined to elaborate on the project, but she said the expansion is “definitely on the table.”

Worley said she is currently focused on opening her second brick-and-mortar location in Hillsboro Village. Plans to open a third location in Franklin show Fresh Hospitality’s power to grow brands quickly.

“Being able to reach different segments of the market is an important thing,” Worley said. “We’ve been really lucky with our store in the Gulch to be attractive to people who don’t live here … so that’s changed what we do dramatically. I’m really looking forward to the Hillsboro store and getting back to serving Nashvillians again.”

The Gulch location has proven particularly popular with tourists, with lines often stretching outside.

Worley said the toughest part about the growth has been managing the exponential growth in employees.

“We went from Karl [her husband] and I and one full-time employee and a couple of part-time employees [operating the food truck] to where we employ 61 people now. .. That’s definitely a growing challenge … [and] definitely a new skill-set,” Worley said.

Fresh Hospitality, which helps operate about 20 concepts, with 150 locations all across the country, has recently been expanding its Middle Tennessee reach away from Nashville. In May, the company purchased land in Cool Springs.

The Factory Franklin TN
The Factory at Franklin is a one-of-a-kind retail and entertainment complex listed in the National Register of Historic Places and in near proximity to the nationally-recognized Main Street of Franklin, Tennessee. Its restaurants and storefronts present distinct and varied offerings showcasing local culture and artisan goods. Three unique venues, totaling 30,000 square feet and also available for private use, host an increasing number of concerts, plays, and other entertainment events throughout the year.

The Factory was built in 1929 and served as the home of Dortch Stove Works, Magic Chef, and later the Jamison Bedding Company.  Recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, the campus was purchased and renovated by local developer Calvin Lehew in 1996, preserving many of The Factory’s original features and architectural details in a new mixed-use design.
Another change in ownership in 2012 led to a renewed vision and a mission-driven approach to revitalizing the property. The Factory at Franklin is on its way to becoming an interactive cultural destination for excellence in the performance and visual arts, dining, and retail experience.
