There are moments and places that make you feel good – if you let them in…

Today 3 strangers accidently ‘coincided’ in the library.  

Some books fell – we laughed – ok giggled – and the librarian rolled her eyes and scolded us grown ups who were setting a baaad example for the kids… 

We were caught!  And somehow a wonderful conversation – shared guilt perhaps - evolved.

The topic - after all Thanksgiving is in the air - was sweet potato pudding!

3 women – 3 wonderful mouth watering recipes...

And now we share them with you!

While you bake check out my favorite sweet potato pie song – written by James Taylor and sung here by Ray Charles…

Oh Lord, I feel fine today
Walking on cloud nine today…”  hear more


1)    Sweet potatoes, evaporated milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, marshmallows…
Combine first 5 ingredients, place in baking pan.  Cover with Marshmallows.  
Bake at 350 degrees F for about ½ hour or until toothpick comes out clean

2)    Sweet potatoes, cornflakes, walnuts, pecans, butter
Whip potatoes, put into baking pan.
Melt butter and mix in cornflakes, walnuts and pecans.
Fill pan with half way with potatoes and half with cornflake mixture.
Bake at 350 same as above

3)    This is the ‘Paleo’ version
Sweet potatoes
4 eggs
Cinnamon and nutmeg
Blend all and pour into greased pan
Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 F

These ladies started out by baking raw sweet potatoes but hey, canned anyone?   

And don’t ask me for exact amounts please! 

That librarian was giving us the evil eye…
