    Mmmm!! I really really liked this, the flavour was very good. I just made half the amount and I ate it all myself, I am embarrassed to say, but hey it was good so why not. I can't really describe the flavour, just that is was lovely and sweet and very tasty. I will be making this again, I haven't used a lot of sweet potatoes in the past, but I will rectify that now. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.

<p>6/6/11- We bought another old house in Michigan at the end of January, with more room, but still with a small kitchen - lol! I did spend three months renovating the kitchen and it is very retro. It is bigger than the hobbit house kitchen, but still small. I also finished another degree - this time in small business and am now currently working full time on my small mobile art&nbsp;business. I sometimes miss working with the elderly as a mental health therapist, but for the time being I am doing what I had always wanted to do for many years. Plus I am enjoying fixing up my new old house.</p> <p>1/1/11 - Just a quick update on my profie, considering its been a few years since I updated. I still love to cook and we are currently looking for a new house, preferably another old house, but one with a larger kitchen. I have recently had some GI issues which are causing me to look differently at food. In the next few months you will start to see me post some new recipes that will be good, healthy and appropriate to those who suffer from digestive problems and IBS.</p> <p>I live in Michigan at this time, but have lived in several different states and countries. I like to cook and have recently been striving to cook healthy. I am an artist and therapist by profession. I enjoy walking, reading and making cards. I am also presently working on another degree to add to my collection of two bachelors and two masters degrees. The latest challenge is an online degree in small business management. <br /><br />I believe I probably cook in one of the smallest kitchens around. We live in an official bungalow, is even listed on the national registry. However, bungalow must mean very small, we nicknamed our house the hobbit house. The kitchen is equipped with a 1929 mini stove, limited pot space on the stove. We recently got a new refrigerator - almost standard size, except shorter - the old coil on the outside one died. I have so little room, I store the majority of my cooking items and can goods in the basement. My challenge is to be the best chef I can, despite my cooking environment. Some day I will have my dream kitchen, in the meantime, it is a snap to reach from the sink, to the stove, to the frig.! <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/Copyofsoybean.jpg border=0 alt=tag /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/5249/bookmarkmagnetswapapr20vs1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/MayFlowerssticker.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/peacefulnightdove/memdaych.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/signature5.gif border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/bilby-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group07kiwi.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_24074.png border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Erica-1-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/cws3.png border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /></a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/9dcd2f11.png border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /></a><a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/cookbook.php?bookid=220958><img src=http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/beveragetagcookbook1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /></a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/Purple-Swap-AM-Banner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png border=0 alt=Made /> <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picwJT0Wr-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/CookbookParticipation.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/pic5BTaSK-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i497.photobucket.com/albums/rr336/jess4freedom/Zaar%20banners/saltpepper_amtag.jpg border=0 alt=Salt /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_127226.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <object width=400 height=300 data=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=src value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> <br /></a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/4th%20of%20July/4811_126789.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /></a><a href=http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view?t=spoiledpetswap09partbanner.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/spoiledpetswap09partbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/ParticipationBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i1010.photobucket.com/albums/af225/z_fbp/ZaarFBPwk16.jpg alt=/ /></a><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/cookbookswap.jpg border=0 alt=/ /></p>
