Yorkshire Pudding

One of the best memories I have of eating at my grandmother's house is Yorkshire Pudding. We would have it with roast beef and mashed potatoes.

I have tried for years to find a way to make them like she did, big and fluffy. I only recently discovered this recipe and it works every time. The secret is to let the batter sit for at least half an hour to give it time to rise.

They are great with leftover gravy drizzled over them (or my children seem to think maple syrup on them is pretty tasty as well.)

Chicken Hurry

I have never been sure why this dish is called Chicken Hurry, it might be because it is so quick and easy to make. At any rate it is a tasty meal, all my children will eat it, and it is easy to warm up the leftovers for later (plus I will show in another post how to make the leftovers into a completely different, and yummy, meal.)

To add a little bit of variety and balance to the meal it is probably best to serve some vegetables with it as well.

My kids love waffles, I love waffles, my husband not so much. I often serve these as a treat after weekend swimming lessons for lunch. They like them with strawberry sauce and whip cream, but usually they get them with plain old margarine and syrup.

This is another recipe from my mother-in-law, but I add a touch of vanilla for a bit more flavor.
