Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This is the dish my kids request every year for thanksgiving. I back off on the sugar a little sometimes since there are marshmallows, but always add a 1/4 stick of butter to help the flavor, otherwise it tastes a little too sickening sweet. And if you're not getting much fat from other places in your meal, the butter fat helps you absorb all that great Vitamin A in the sweet potato! I use canned sweet potatoes if I'm short on time, which does add sugar to the dish, so back off on sugar if using canned!

Flan I

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Not bad, but all these Flan recipes with sweetened condensed milk are TOO SWEET! If you are satisfied by the sweetness of the caramel sauce (which is all sugar) and prefer the custard taste of a TRADITIONAL flan recipe, skip this one and continue searching for the recipes with just sugar, milk, eggs, salt, and vanilla. There are a few out there, and they are much more satisfying with more variety of flavor, not just sweet.

Taco in a Bag

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Our Girl Scout troop makes these when we camp. We call them "Walking Tacos" - they are portable and great for camping. My 8 yr old and 10 yr old love them because they can add their own condiments. We also use chopped onion and guacamole. At home I pile this on top of a bowl of spinach or romaine for a taco salad.
