Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This is my new favorite candied sweet potatoes recipe! It was a hit on both Thanksgiving and Christmas. The first time I made it, the nutmeg was very overpowering. I will be omitting it from now on, but I do suggest reducing the amount by at least half. It was hard to taste the sweet potato over it. I also used brown sugar instead of plain white sugar. I did tweak the recipe a bit. In the end, I transferred the potatoes to a casserole dish and topped with mini marshmallows and finely chopped pecans, and placed in a heated oven (350 is OK, no more than 400) until the marshmallows were gooey. The kids even loved it, and they aren't sweet potato fans. :)

Whoopie Pies VII

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
Awful. The cookies had almost no flavor, and if you do not let the batter sit and "thicken" before baking, the cookies spread out while baking and become huge and paper-thin. The filling was too greasy, and called for too much vanilla. My kids definitely did not like this recipe, and I will not be making it again.
