I've actually made this recipe a few times before, pre-blog. It's not that it's so incredibly good, although it is tasty, but it's just a good way to use up the seedless raspberry jam that I always have left after Christmas. It does have an odd appearance due to the pink sauce. If you don't like sweetness in your savory dishes, you won't like this. I actually ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning and it was very good reheated too.

I really enjoy the Cooking Light Annuals. They don't have a lot of pictures and they can be a bit difficult to deal with, since they're organized by month but they do come with several good indexes to help you find recipes.

Blast From The Past: Out-of-This-World Waffles from just last week. I made another batch for my husband yesterday and used a cup of whole wheat flour in place of one cup of the AP flour. I ran out of AP flour but I think they were even better with the whole wheat flour. They were more flavorful. Next time, I'll add the ww flour and cut back on the oil a bit.

Question of the Day: Do you ever eat leftovers for breakfast?

I loooove leftovers for breakfast. Sometimes cold, sometimes hot.

Only if it's something that be mixed with scrambled eggs, such as leftover potatoes. I'm not very adventurous at breakfast.

Yes my family will eat leftovers anytime of day. I am really really trying to reduce waste this year!! I also like the cooking light series of cookbooks. In my cooking light annual recipes 1999 there is a similar recipe called raspberry-balsamic glazed chicken- YUM!

Only pizza and that has been awhile. I usually save leftovers for lunch or dinner. Breakfast, during the week, is usually the same thing all week and quick to make and go.

I'm not a big fan of leftovers. I get bored easily and can't eat the same thing more than two times in a row.

As for eating them for breakfast - never have. I always bring leftovers from dinner for lunch the next day.

Ah yes, cold pizza is the best leftover breakfast. I do usually save leftovers for lunch but sometimes I'll eat them for breakfast if I have something else planned for lunch.
