Vegan Waffles:
2 cups flour
3 TB sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
2 cups soymilk
4 TB melted margarine/ earth balance butter
1 tsp vanilla

Sift dry ingredients into bowl.  Add soymilk and melted butter and vanilla.  Whisk until smooth.  We add blueberries- you can add anything else now, folding it in.  Then pour into the waffle-maker.  Ours takes about a cup of the mixture.

Vegan Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat or white flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups soymilk
1 TBS maple syrup
1 TBS vinegar
blueberries (optional)

Stir together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in mixing bowl.  We sometimes add a dash of cinnamon here too. Then add soymilk, maple syrup, and vinegar, (sometimes 1 tsp. vanilla extract too) stirring only until bumps are gone.  Using a heated lightly oiled or nonstick skillet/griddle, pour batter for pancakes until bubbles form and then flip (same as any pancakes) :)  They're good!

Balsamic Roasted Potatoes
 7 medium potatoes, cubed and unpeeled
half an onion, sliced in 1/4 inch strips
2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
4 tsp. olive oil
thyme, sage and basil
salt
pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Put potatoes, onions, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and herbs in a bowl and toss.  With the herbs, I just put a few dashes of crushed sage, a few sprigs of thyme and a few leaves of basil in.  Then put in a large roasting pan.  Put in oven for 35 minutes, taking out every 10 minutes to stir.  Finally just put in a dish, sprinkle on salt and pepper, and serve! :)
