Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
delicious. I would cut down the sugar a little bit nexttime. Sweet potatoes don't need to be over powered by adding so much sugar. Boiling the potatoes helped cut time, I quartered the potatoes and left the skin on so they wouldn't get too mushy. Another trick that will help, when mixing the butter and brown sugar, DO NOT USE YOUR HANDS! This causes the butter to become warm and won't produce the crumble texture you are looking for. Keep the butter in the fridge until you are ready to use it. I also put my fork ( or pastry blender) in the fridge to keep it cool until ready to use.

This was very tasty! I only give it three stars because its not very authentic (soy sauce was very dominant not something I associate with greek food) but dont get me wrong it is DELICIOUS and it comes out juicy and tender and the marinade is great. I did notice that you need a longer cooking time than 8 or 10 minutes. But that may be due to the fact that I cut my cubes a little bigger. Also after getting home from the store I noticed I didn't have any skewers, so I just popped the meat on the grill and sauteed the green peppers and onions. overall very good.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
This meatloaf is really quite delicious. Though I did add more seasonings (worsteshire sauce,paprika,soy sauce) and I did use less milk and breadcrumbs instead of crackers. I omitted the ginger I just didn't think it would work with the ground beef. I think that the brown sugar and ketchup, basically bbq sauce but a perfectly measured one :) should go on top so it doesn't get lost in all the juices as the meatloaf cooks. I love garlic , so I add a few cloves into the meat. It does caramelize well and you won't get that ugly sticky burnt top if you use enough ketchup. This is the only way I do meatloaf now. You can change it up but the recipe itself is great! YUMMY!
