(Oh – how we love multi-purpose appliances that take up less counter and cabinet space!) My husband Jack and I were extremely impressed with the De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill. It is a well-constructed, heavy-duty home appliance that is easy to use, heats up fast, cooks evenly, and has easy-to-use dials for ultimate control. The De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill was really designed with flexibility in mind. The extra wide 9”x15” cooking surface allows you to make multiple dishes for a large family or while entertaining a crowd. The embedded heating elements in each cooking plate ensure even cooking, and you can control the cooking temperature and time of each side of the grill individually with the Digital Control LED panel with timer. The lid has a floating hinge that accommodates any height food you might be cooking without crushing it – or you can lock the lid at any height above your food – which is great for melting cheese or broiling food from the top. You can mix and match the interchangeable plates – contact grill, Panini press, full grill, full griddle and half grill/half griddle or even waffle mode.

The De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill comes with a two grill plates, two griddle plates, two waffle plates, plus a spatula & measuring cup. This is a great appliance for any kitchen!

3 cups fresh or frozen whole cranberries
Zest from half an orange
2 10-ounce bottles cranberry juice, not cocktail
1¼ cups granulated sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
2½ cups eggnog
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 eggs, separated
Make the syrup by placing all ingredients into a sauce pan and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and using a blender or emersion blender, puree until smooth. Keep on low heat until ready to serve. If making a day ahead, the mixture will congeal like cranberry sauce. Simply reheat and puree again. May need to dilute with a little more cranberry juice if too thick.
For pancakes, in a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, mix eggnog, vanilla and melted butter. Beat egg yolks into this mixture but separate the whites into a small bowl.
With a hand mixer, beat egg whites to soft peaks.
Mix the eggnog mixture into the flour mixture until smooth then gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
On our De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill, we set front and back plates to 300 degrees F. Once hot, we lightly sprayed the griddle with pan spray then cooked six pancakes at a time. We cooked the remaining batter in two more batches yielding 18 pancakes. On your stove or cooktop, use medium low to medium heat.
Serve hot with the cranberry syrup.
