Candied Sweet Potatoes
This was quick and easy and good. I chop the sweet potatoes (with the skin still on) into 2" thick circles, and then cut the circles in half, before boiling them in an enormous stockpot-- this makes the boiling time really fast. After they are boiled, the skin practically falls off, which saves you the effort of peeling them beforehand. Based on the reviews, I reduced the butter and sugar all the way down to 1/4 cup margarine and 1/2 cup brown sugar. The Thanksgiving guests said it was perfect that way, but no one had a super sweet tooth. Personally, I will try 1/2 cup margarine and maybe 3/4 cup sugar next time as I felt the reduced version was too healthy and not decadent enough. :) Although chunks are good, the potatoes should still be mashed a little bit while you stir them into the sauce. If you have too big chunks the butter/sugar will not penetrate the center of the chunk. Did anyone notice that this recipe is very similar to making rice krispie treats-- except you don't add sugar when making rice krispie treats? ***Update*** I've made this every year for Thanksgiving, and it is always a hit. Definitely go with 1/2 cup salted butter (NOT margarine!) and 3/4 cup brown sugar.

Coconut Ice Cream
Ack!! Did anyone else notice that there is NO SUGAR in this recipe? I didn't until it was too late. Maybe the other reviewers found coconut cream that was pre-sweetened but my can was not. The ice cream came out foul-tasting and extremely icy.

Golden Rum Cake
I didn't cook the rum in the glaze as suggested by others, thinking that I like the taste of rum, and whoa, this was like drinking directly from the bottle. Recipe needs a lot of tweaking. The glaze shouldn't require that much butter considering the yellow cake is pretty flavorful by itself.
