BENNNNNN. You said I love you to TWO women! What the hell fudge? You’re not suppose to do that, mister. Sure, I believe that you can be in love with two people at the same time, when you’re in paradise on dates with super hot women in places you will probably never travel to again. Love is really easy on vacation. Love is way harder when you’re buying a house together or dealing with a death in the family or when putting up with her on her period. But hey, who needs reality. Reality shows are way better anyways.

So let’s start off with the elephant in the room: Ben telling not just one, but two ladies that he loves them. Here’s some things we need to mill over.

  1. Did the producers make him do that since he wasn’t stirring up enough drama?
  2. Or is he actually in love with two women and really means it?
  3. Also, do you feel like they set Kayla up on the lamest date in hopes of Ben dumping her?

These are all things worth thinking about. I know this is mean to say, but it was nice to see Kayla have some sort of emotion other than laughing. Even while searching for Ben while walking into her own demise, she was still laughing. What are you laughing about, Kayla?! You’re just walking!! Then Ben dumped her ass. That quiets a person up real quick like. I did feel bad for Kayla in the end, though. Seeing someone cry is sad.

But let’s talk about less sad stuff, like the fantasy suite. Do you think they do it in the fantasy suite? He can’t do it with all the women, can he? Lauren did say, let’s “be us…do us.” Interesting choice of words, Lauren. I dig it. You go girl. And how far apart do you think these fantasy dates are, time wise? And what do the girls do the rest of the time? Do they just hang out with the producers? I was wonder if these dates are in the order that they are shown. I mean, JoJo went last and she definitely was the tannest. Meaning she’s been waiting for a date the longest. This is the sh*t that goes on in my head while I watch.

I can’t wait for the last episode because I actually like both girls. Lauren is adorbs and JoJo is adorbs with big ole’ boobies and absolutely adorable swimsuits. What’s not to like about these two women. Who do you think it’s going to be? And are you super pumped to watch Olivia’s mouth on the women tell all?!

OMG, the baby sea turtles. I can’t even.

Vanilla Bean Lemon Curd Waffles

5 from 2 reviews

  • Yield: 1 1/4 cup 1x



For the lemon curd

  • 4 large lemons, zested and juiced (the zest should be about 1/8 cup and the juice a little over 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup ghee or butter
  • 1 vanilla bean, cut in half and seeds scraped out
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the waffles

For garnishing


  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix together.
  2. Put the sugar mixture, lemon juice, egg yolks, and ghee in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan and stir until combined. Turn on heat to medium-low heat and use a whisk to whisk constantly until the mixture melts and the begins to thickens, about 10-12 minutes. Yes, you need to whisk the entire time. The lemon curd will continue to thicken as it cools.
  3. Pour lemon curd into a jar or glass bowl. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly against the curd so it is airtight. Cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator. Again, the curd will thicken up after it is completely cooled.
  4. Make waffles.
  5. Spread lemon curd on waffles, top with maple syrup and fresh berries.

    OK, so while it IS sad to see someone cry, I feel like there were no actual tears coming out of Caila’s eyes while she was “crying.” It just made me even more convinced she is a robot (she totally is a robot). Your post the other day that people are filling your comment section with sh*tty hateful things in 2016 while you’re already going through a hard time made me sad, so I just wanted to comment for the first time after being a longtime reader that I think you’re just generally awesome and your recipes are some of my family’s all-time favorites. Oh and one more bachelor-related thing – you should read Sharleen’s (from Juan P’s season) recaps – She was one of my all-time favorites and her perspective as a former contestant as to what is/isn’t staged by producers is a great read.

    1. juli says:

      riiiiight? she’s an odd ball. i guess we are all odd in our own way, hers being the robot way. and thanks for the recommendation, definitely going to read that now!!

    2. Heather R says:

      This is exactly my thought! I saw NO tears coming out of her eyes in the car, and while I felt like she had “emotion” I think it was “this is the emotion I am supposed to show, but I just can’t muster up the tears.” I have a fear she will be the next Bachelorette… I am not sure I could watch her all season.

    Lemon curd makes everything better. Seriously. And let’s not rule out eating it by the spoonful straight out of the jar!

  3. Courtney says:

    This is probably a really dumb question but do you only use the seeds from the vanilla bean? It seems really obvious I just want to double check. Also, I’ve never commented on your website before but am a huge fan and need to tell you your spaghetti squash pizza bake is the best thing that has ever happened in my life.

    1. juli says:

      yes, just the seeds! Once you scrape the seeds out, you can toss the pod! i’ve actually put the pod in my coconut sugar or maple sugar in the past to make it more fragrant and vanilla-y!

  4. Chantal says:

    Hi Juli, this recipe is making me look at waffle irons online! Got a recommend for a model you like?

    1. juli says:

      honestly, I got mine at a thrift store a while ago, it’s nothing fancy. so i would just say whatever shape you like, go with that one! it’s not like waffle irons get used every single day, so they last pretty well no matter the quality.

      1. chantal says:

        Thanks Juli!

  5. Chelsea@RunningWithaWhisk says:

    I totally read your recaps every week so that I feel like I know what’s going on even when I miss the show. It sounds like craziness! These waffles are amazing! They are seriously perfect for spring and look like Easter!

  6. Natacha says:

    Can you replace the maple sugar with anything? Just because I am craving that delicious lemon curd and I have no maple sugar in the house 🙂

    1. juli says:

      coconut sugar, but it will change the color of the lemon curd

  7. Becca says:

    These waffles are AMAZING! Lemon and waffles are oddly two things I have been craving! 🙂

  8. Cassie Tran says:

    Hahaha, I never watch The Bachelor, but I bet the drama is just unreal! Poor Kayla! Aside from that, these waffles look absolutely delicious. I think the lemon curd recipe has the best result of texture!

  9. Veronica says:

    Hi! my son is allergic to all nuts, and sunflower/pumpkin seeds. Can I make a butter out of hemp hearts and use this in the waffle recipe? (Do you think hemp heart butter might work in place of nut/seed butter, in some of your other recipes?)

    Also, do you happen to know where I can find a Teflon free waffle iron?


    1. juli says:

      i have absolutely no clue about the hemp hearts. none. and i’m sure you could find one on amazon!

  10. Erica says:

    GAAHHH Lauren all the way!! I feel like Ben told Lauren he’s been falling in love with her for a while and then the producers were like…what the heck you can’t ACTUALLY tell her you’re in love with her…better tell another girl the same thing to even the playing field. I mean, JoJo is ADORBS but to me, it has been sooooo obvious that Ben has been mesmerized by Lauren since the beginning. (However, I am biased because I know Lauren but STILL) I am usually totally not into the Bach but I watched this season because of Lauren and OMG it’s like crack. I seriously am like YES YES YES it’s Mondayyyyyyy! Anyway…#priorities.

    Oh an also I’m like 99.9% sure that the fantasy suite dates happen three days in a row. And DO THEY DO IT!? That’s like the biggest question ever. It would kill me if they did. That’s so messed up.

    Oh and double also… lemon curd is also crack soooo, thanks for feeding the addict.
