Sweet Potato Souffle: Thanksgiving Countdown #5

I adore sweet potatoes.  I love them roasted, candied, whipped, and just plain old baked.  And they are so amazingly good for you!  Chuck full of vitamin A and fiber.  I personally think no Thanksgiving table is complete without them. So I love to find new ways to prepare this delicious veggie. This recipe is […]

I […]

Swedish Pancakes….kinda

November 7, 2011


This recipe is the one the kids always choose for their “birthday breakfast.”  I think they look more forward to this than birthday cake!
