Sounds like a wonderful recipe for sweet potatoes for the holidays - and I know your 2nd recipe very well.  They are known  here as funeral potatoes here.  Because it's an quick & easy dish that feeds lots of people at large gatherings such as funeral lol.  I'm going to definitely try the sweet potatoe one this year.  Thanks!

I got one for ya...actually I have several, but we'll start with this one...:

Candied Sweet Potatoes (the skin kiddies love this one...)

3-5 (more if your feeding an army) fresh sweet potatoes - peeled and cut into chunks
Small bag of brown sugar
Half a stick of butter
1/4 cup of apple juice
Tap water

1-2 Bags of marshmellows

In a medium to large sauce pan melt butter.  When melted, add sweet potatoes, brown sugar, apple juice, and enough tap water to almost cover sweet potatoes (amount of brown sugar will depend on amount of potatoes and size of pan...adjust accordingly).  Cook this mixture down until potatoes are soft, but not mushy.

Put sweet potatoe mixture into a GLASS baking pan (don't grease or otherwise coat pan prior to adding this mixture).  Cover thoroughly with marshmellows and bake at 375 until marshmellows are golden brown.

Enjoy!!!

Liz my thoughts were.. HOLY SH#T that sounds SOOO freaking GOOD!!! I can't wait to make it!!!

Now we are on the topic...One of my fave dishes to bring to parties is...Sweet potato hummus. It's very tangy and is a nice alternative to regular hummus!

Sweet Potato Hummus

1 pound sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 large lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 teaspoons brown sugar
Zest of one orange
1 tablespoon tahini*
Pita slices, toasted, or bagel chips
1 teaspoon crumbled feta cheese
1 teaspoon toasted pistachios

* Tahini is a thick paste made of ground sesame seeds that can be purchased already prepared from many supermarkets and specialty stores.

Bake or microwave sweet potatoes until fully cooked. Allow the potatoes to cool, then remove the skins and discard them, retaining the flesh.

Toast the cumin seeds on low heat, then crush by hand. (Seeds can be crushed by using a mortar and pestle or by smashing between a saucepan and cutting board.)

Add seeds and sweet potato to the food processor together with the lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, olive oil, brown sugar, orange zest and tahini. Blend until smooth and creamy (you may want to add more salt or sugar depending on the sweetness of the potatoes).

Serve hummus with toasted pita or bagel chips. Sprinkle with feta and toasted pistachios.

Enjoy!

I know I was shocked when I asked what the great potatoes were that my niece brought for our Thanksgiving dinner and everyone - including the hubands all said - funeral potatoes.  She was pregnant at the time and was suffering from morning sickness, so her husband had actually made them for her - sweet guy.  I guess I had lived in Vegas for too long or just didn't go to any funerals lol.  They all looked at me like I was weird for not knowing what they were called.  I liked them so much I looked up the recipe on the internet and they were indeed called funeral potatoes!

Thanks for sharing all of your recipes. I only have my favorite baked macaroni and cheese with bacon.
It is simple

by a small boxer of macaroni
By a block of Velveeta cheese
by a pack of bacon

Cook your macaroni until done then drain and set in a baking dish(long)

while you macaroni is getting done and draining(towards the draining part) In a big bowl put your block of cheese and milk about a cup full in the microwave. Heat until the cheese is very soft.(IT WILL HAVE A BURNT LOOK IF YOU COOK TO LONG JUST REMOVE BURNT PART OFF TOP) But cook in micro at lease until soft.
Then place the cheese in baking dish with macaroni stir in well  UNTIL all macaroni is covered or almost. Don't worry if you have any chunky not so melted parts they will melt in the next part.
Then take a pack of bacon and put strips long ways across the dish then when you do that cover all exposed macaroni parts with more bacon. (MAKE A BACON BLANKET ON TOP OF THE MACARONI is the best way to put it)
Ok then put in a pre heated over at 450 and cook for about twenty to thirty min or until bacon is done. It wont be crispy because you are cooking it in the oven.
ITS GOOD TRY IT
I am sorry if this is confusing. Let me know if you try it or not.
