  6. I went to Jennifer Chandler's website and got a recipe for Pumpkin Gratin with Sundried Tomatoes which I would never have thought of, but I love to try new things, so I printed it out to file away with some other fall favorites. I also got a recipe for Bananas Foster Waffles which I CAN NOT WAIT to try!!!
