Raised Waffles

My genius team realized how easy (and amazing) it was to pull together a waffle bar at work. Some people brought batter, some brought waffle irons, some brought toppings, and they served fresh waffles all morning.

The batter for these yeast-based waffles rises on the counter overnight – in the morning, just beat in the eggs and baking soda, and cook on the waffle iron.

These waffles are light, fluffy, crispy, and delicious.

Grilled Pizza

I made this pizza at dusk one 4th of July. Just as the pizzas came off the grill, fireworks lit up the sky on the horizon. Rather than miss the show or let the pizza get cold, we ate it standing up on the edge of the porch.

This pizza really isn’t as complicated as it appears from the detailed instructions. If you’re trying this with a gas grill, light only one side of the grill and cook the pizza on the other side.
