Sweet potato casserole

I was going for an Indian theme and then my sister and nephew twisted me to make the sweet potato casserole for them. Also, thank God for sisters, halfway through cooking, we experienced a power cut and none of the food was ready. We considered pizza but with no entertainment at ours, we quickly shifted base to my sister’s house that is down the road from ours.

In the kitchen lately …

One of the things I wanted to do before I turn 30 was to get a few dessert dishes that I include to my repertoire of dishes.

Poached pear (with a dollop of ice cream – NOT home made 😦 )

Red wine poached pears

Made using this recipe. As I don’t like mine too sweet, I always adjust the amount of sugar.


Sweet potato casserole

Made using this recipe. Again, I also reduce the amount of sugar in both recipes.
