Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup
This is awesome! It's been simmering all day (well, 5 hours on high) and just finished about 1/2 hour ago. Here are my modifications: I doubled the recipe, used 3 cups of chicken broth and 3 cups water, added about 6 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder to round out the 'chickeny' flavor, used onion powder instead of onions (onions aren't my favorite), and pan fried the bacon myself (I didn't want to use the store bought bacon bits). About 10 mins after adding the half and half, I also added about 5 oz of the reduced-fat 2% milk Velveeta (per the authors suggestion!) and it turned out AMAZEBALLS! I ladled myself a bowl and garnished it with shredded medium cheddar and sliced green onions. My fiancé was walking out the door and I told him (the guy in the profile pic is my fiancé) to take a taste. His reaction was 'Oh MAN that is delicious. I don't think we'll have any left to share!' Keep in mind I doubled the recipe lol. This dish is a winner, winner, chicken dinner and I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

Classic Waffles
I have been looking for a grat waffle recipe for some time. I own the Kitchenaid proline waffle iron and many of them either turn out too thin and crispy or too soft. These came out just right. Crunchy exterior with a soft middle. Tip: Be sure to use a cooling rack or the waffle will get soggy underneath. Another tip: an easy way to reheat a waffle is just to use the waffle iron again for about 15 seconds. It reheats great if you are making for a large group and need to make ahead. Better than using the oven which will dry them out. Great stuff!

Wonderful Waffles
Excellent texture and overall a superb waffle. I am pretty picky and these are good. I would probably only use two eggs next time and-like many suggestions--I liked a little extra flavor (strawberries for me and choc chips for my sons) Great recipe.
