Waffles II
Super easy and the family loved them! I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of sugar as other reviewers mentioned. Thanks for the recipe this is the one I will continue to use when the kids want waffles!

Sausage Gravy III
Thank you Bonnie! My search for the perfect sausage gravy is over. I used butter instead of margarine I read somewhere that a reviewer used evaporated milk and water. I decided to try that and it took me back, this was the taste I searched countless recipes for!! Thanks again:-)

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Amazing! I made this for my husband to celebrate Valentines Day as it combines two of his favorite things, white chocolate and cheesecake. It was a hit, he loved it and I'm sure I will be making this often. I melted the chocolate in the microwave which was easy. I also microwaved some strawberry jam and used that as opposed to the Raspberry. 5 stars thanks for the recipe!
