Waffles II
I made these last Saturday morning as an on-the-fly decision and was pleasantly surprised. I usually make a yeast waffle, but didn't plan ahead Friday night, so I needed something that would be ready quickly to feed a whole gaggle of hungry kids. I tripled this recipe but used almond milk (my kids are lactose-intolerant so I use almond milk in 90% of my baking) and naturally white whole wheat flour instead without adjusting the recipe proportions at all. That was probably a mistake. :) I ended up putting in a bit of vanilla extract and some more milk at the end to thin out the batter a little bit right before putting them into the waffle-maker and add some flavor. That was my second mistake. My family ended up referring to these as the "lack-luster waffles" but I wholeheartedly believe that was due to using sub-par vegetable oil left over from a fish-fry (at least it hadn't been used :P), not adjusting the proportions of my ingredients when using the whole wheat flour, and messing with the batter after folding in the peaked egg whites. That's why I still rated the recipe 4 stars.

Lentils with Tomatoes
This recipe was kid-approved, and totally delicious! I didn't have green-peppers, so I omitted them, but added minced garlic into the oil before sauteing the onions. I also doubled the recipe and used fresh tomatoes from my garden (generic tomatoes like for slicing and several Black Prince Grape tomatoes that were super sweet) that I didn't bother to seed or peel. The result was absolutely the best easy dish I've ever cooked with lentils! Top it off with a bit of Sriracha for a nice savory, spicy dish! And, since I served it over brown rice, the cook-times lined up perfectly. One word of advice: be sparing with the salt if you don't like salty foods. I find that lentils can easily get way too salty for my personal taste, if you're not careful.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens
I made this dish with Yukon Gold Potatoes (all I had available), and since it was for a 4th of July party, I increased the serving size to 6. Other than that, the only thing I did different was cook the potatoes in a glass baking dish because I don't have any ceramic dishes. This recipe came out great! One thing I did notice was, by tripling the recipe, the end result was a little oily. I would recommend using a little less butter if making great quantities of this recipe.
