Sweet Potato and Apple Cobbler

This recipe from Southern Living provides a tasty and unique use for apples and sweet potatoes. There are several liberties that can be taken with the ingredients (I used half of the called for refrigerated pie crust, none of the orange juice and much less of the sugar, for example). A dollop of freshly whipped cream really brings this one home!


Sweet Potato Mousse and Maple Praline Sauce

You’ll have your guests saying “Sweet potato is in this? No way!” You can have fun responding, “yes, way”. Cream cheese adds to the decadence of this mousse. The maple praline sauce sends it over the top. A little whipped cream and crumbled graham crackers and you’ve got yourself a party.
