As a huge fan of sushi, I find it appalling that I've never made my own. But I decided to be brave and try out this recipe in hopes that more people would be brave and try to make it, even if it isn't the real thing. This recipe is healthy and tasty, although quite difficult

    Add fruits of your choice on top in rows, keeping them close together. Starting with the side with the most filling, roll the waffle into itself, being careful to keep the filling and cream cheese on the inside.
