  1. Absolutely delicious sweet potatoe recipe! Never fails! I've made it probably 20 times. Excellent cookbook too!
  2. This is my new favorite way to eat sweet potato casserole! It's incredible.
  3. This is our favorite way to eat sweet potatoes. It ALWAYS turns out, and is even better with Grand Marnier instead of sherry! Love it, love it, love it.
  4. I have had this twice before because my mother has this cookbook. It is absolutely delicious. It is my favorite sweet potato recipe. Glad to see it on here because I don't have the cookbook!


56, an Army brat who has lived in 20 different locations [born in germany, went to kindergarten in japan] including new york city, palo alto CA, maine, georgia, chicago, after growing up in small-town kansas... have some fabulous recipes from well-traveled army people... recently started adding just a splash of bourbon or brandy to real maple syrup - and it really gives french toast or pancakes a special, more sophisticated flavor... a friend jokes that bourbon is my new "secret ingredient" that i'll be adding to everything - it's not true but i'm telling you - you should try it! it's really very good [for adults, anyway] sugarpea's apple pancake recipe is a deadringer for Walker Brothers Pancake House in north shore Chicago - i've searchd for this for 34 years - and it's easy as well as To Die For!!! the Dutch Baby pancake is a huge seller there too - with the same gooey comfort-food but elegant batter... also if you search for lettuce wrap - the 2 recipes for PF Chang's come up... this is also SO GOOD, truly a memorable entree... for cookbooks: With a Jug of Wine, More Recipes With a Jug of Wine were written by the San Francisco Chronicle food writer decades ago - and most everything in them is superb - and i learned a lot as a new cook, young wife, from reading through them in the late 1970s... i got a [very French] sense of food as a way of life
