Savory Waffles – The Possibilities are Endless

Is your waffle iron suffering from neglect?  A lot of us have acquired a waffle iron on a whim (or perhaps a hand-me-down from someone else who acquired one on a whim), but we don’t actually make waffles very often. Savory waffles are a great way to make more regular use of a waffle iron and to add a little flair to your presentation at lunch and dinner.

Soups & Stews

And the Bases are Loaded…Salmon & Corn Chowder

We have really covered the soup bases this week!  First up was the vegetable soup over the weekend; then, it was all celery, all the time.  Tonight, I made a salmon & corn chowder, complete with a little creole seasoning kick to get everyone’s attention. And truth be told, our tour of soups isn’t quite over yet….stay tuned for tomorrow’s post!
