Pumpkin Pie Waffles November 17, 2011

Jamie says:  The countdown begins. Seven days until Thanksgiving! Do you have your holiday breakfast in  mind yet? How about that pumpkin pie recipe? Even if you do, does it take under 5 minutes to make? Is it relatively healthy? Consider making Pumpkin Pie Waffles instead. They are absolutely delicious.
