For so long, I lived in hot places, where I didn't want to use my oven. Now, I'm going to have to struggle through winter without a grill.

Breakfast Pies
This was a success all around. I initially made it as written, but it can be easily modified to meet the needs of an individual family. I can see using hot sausage, turkey sausage, or vegetarian if the need called for it. I didn't use the turkey baster egg trick, but I have a bowl with a pour spout that made adding the eggs simple and mess free. I had to get out the rolling pin to get the biscuits big enough to line my cups, and my prep time was probably closer to 30 minutes.

Chicken In Basil Cream
Delicious sauce!! Hit with husband and preschooler! Only modification was I used seasoned bread crumbs, just because that is what I had. Definitely adding this to the permanent file, it was fast, easy, and delicious.

Chocolate Waffles I
This was a hit in my house. I made one variation, adding 1 additional tablespoon of cocoa powder, and found them plenty chocolately enough. I didn't make the sauce, choosing instead to use powdered sugar and whipped cream. My 5 year old liked them quite a bit, and my husband described them as "good" which is pretty high praise. Mine were not crispy on the outside, but the texture was not unpleasant at all. I used an inverted belgian waffle maker, and got 4 1/2 waffles. I also did not have the difficulty with sticking that others described, but I do have a nonstick surface on my waffle maker and I used cooking spray. While this recipe did not "knock my socks off" it is a good solid recipe that is going to become a regular part of our family menu.
