Celebrate National Waffle Day and Dove Cameron's 'Born Ready' Single with Ghost-Spider Waffles

Here's a 'Marvel Rising'-inspired recipe that combines two of our favorite things!

Dove Cameron - Born Ready

Two important things are happening/happened today. First, Dove Cameron dropped her latest single, "Born Ready," the theme song for this fall's animated full-feature release, "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors!" (If you haven't listened to it 100x already, what kind of stan are you? Go do it now! I'll be right here waiting for you.) Second, it's National Waffle Day - a day honoring warm, fluffy perfection. We couldn't think of a better way to bring joy to this summer Friday than making Ghost-Spider Waffles marrying our love of waffles, Dove (the Gwen Stacy of our hearts), and Marvel Rising!

The talented Jenn Fujikawa (@justjenn) is back with another "Marvel Rising"-inspired recipe for us! We recommend making these Ghost-Spider Waffles with "Born Ready" on repeat!
