Sweet Potato Pie II
This is an excellent pie. Very sweet, but that's the nature of sweet potatoes! Don't cut corners and add the eggs all at once as this ruins the fluffy texture. I will definitely make this pie again.

Cake Balls
These are very sweet! Make them bite size. The recipe works well up to dipping the balls. There is definitely a learning curve to this part of the recipe. As others have said freeze the balls before dipping. I found the bark too difficult to work with and instead melted 1/2 bag of baking chips with 2tbsp vegetable shortening and just rolled the balls in the bowl. These are definitely at their best when refrigerated. Don't think of these as cake because they are really like a truffle or little desert you might buy from those magazines at Christmastime.

Five Minute Ice Cream
This is one of my favorite recipes! It reminds me of the scoop of homemade ice cream I used to get from my favorite cafe back when I lived in Chicago. Ever since I found this recipe I've been trying different flavors. So far peach and apple are my favorites (if you try apple you need to up the cream or it will be grainy). Some people mentioned that it doesn't freeze very well but I've also noticed that these are the same people that are substituting other dairy products for the cream. Don't! Cream freezes differently and anything other than cream will give you those ice crystals. If you want it creamier just add more cream. I usually add 3/4 to 1 cup cream per 10 ounces frozen fruit. (you have to use frozen fruit for this to work!) Different fruits will give different consistencies so it's all about experimenting. Also, I can't see this working with a blender as it would take too long to get everything to mix and ruin the texture. If you get a milkshake or smoothie consistency you've done something wrong. I always freeze this several hours before eating as it is more like soft serve right out of the food processor.
