Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes
I had Sweet Potato Pancakes recently at a Bed & Breakfast and wanted to try making them on my own. Mine didn't come out as fluffy as those we had before, but I think it's because my sweet potatoes didn't cook soft enough (which I discovered all too late for compensating). I had better luck with using the microwave for about 9 minutes than I did with boiling the sweet potatoes for 15-20 minutes. I had hoped to make several batches of this recipe so I could use up the 2.5 lbs of sweet potatoes I had, but one batch turned out to be so many pancakes that I didn't keep going. Since we do Weight Watchers, I needed to know how many pieces would be in 1 serving... I measured them onto the griddle using a Tablespoon and ended up with 41 small pancakes! So each serving is basically about 5 pancakes if there are 8 servings according to the recipe. I added 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and subbed 1/2 c. Oat Bran in for 1/2 c. of the flour. It took way more than 25 min for me to make these though... more like 2 hrs from start (boiling water) to finish. I usually have a steep learning curve with recipes though, so hopefully next time will be quicker. I plan to freeze the remainder of my batch.

Instant Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
I LOVE these cookies! They've been my favorite for 15-20 years!! If they come out too gooey from not cooking them the right amount of time, just eat them with a spoon!
