Chicken Pot Pie IX
I've made this recipe twice and love how easy it is to customize. I've made it with both shredded, cooked rotisserie chicken and raw breast meat. I prefer the rotisserie chicken since 1) it's readily available at the grocery store and easy to shred and 2) adds a richer flavor. I boiled the chicken with the veggies in chicken broth (2 cups water and 2 bouillon cubes). For the veggies, I used a mix from Costco that has corn, carrots, peas and green beans. I also added a medium, diced yukon gold potato. Rather than cook the meat/veggies and gravy in separate pans, I combined everything together into one saucepan. This includes the butter, onion (I used minced onion), and seasonings. I also doubled the amount of pepper, added a 1/4 tsp of poultry seasoning, and a 1/4 tsp of garlic salt. Lastly, I love to make mini pies using my muffin tin and ramekins since it's an easy way to help with portion control.

Liege Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar
I'm sure this recipe is great, but I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. The result was a very grainy and yeasty tasting waffle. While the pearl sugar does sweeten the waffles, I'm not a fan of how they came out with whole wheat flour. I'll update my review the next time I make it. :)

Pumpkin Spice Latte
As much as I wanted to love this, I couldn't give it 5 stars. I think it's a great start though! I combined the milk, pumpkin, sugar and vanilla in a large jar and shook it for about a minute to make it frothy. I then placed the uncovered jar in the microwave for about a minute to heat the mix (beware, the foam will quickly expand in volume!). Since I don't have an espresso machine, I brewed some very strong coffee, and added it to the heated milk/pumpkin mix. I then garnished with a little whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice. It was decent, but lacked something as it wasn't very rich. Maybe this would be better if you use cream or something a bit richer. I also think it could use more pumpkin! :)
