We had these with our supper (dinner for many of you) tonight. They are so so easy and delicious. We often eat them for dessert.
- Wash and peel a couple of big sweet potatoes. Cut in slices/chunks as shown.
- Heat an iron skillet over medium heat, add a couple Tablespoonfuls of coconut oil or olive oil.
- Add potaotes and drizzle honey on top. I may use 1/4 cup honey. Adjust this amount for the sweetness you like.
- Pour about 1/2 cup water over the honey.
- Cover and cook about 15 minutes or until potaotes are soft as you like and liquid is absorbed.
We had these potatoes with meatloaf (which was frozen earlier and baked a short while before starting the remainder of the meal), cornbread, beans (canned ones tonight), and roasted cabbage. I like the slight burned taste when I cook this cabbage under the broiler.
- Cut 1/2 cabbage head in small pieces. See photo. Toss with a couple tablespoonfuls of sesmae oil. You can also use olive oil, but I think the sesmae oil gives it a nice taste.
- Put cabbage in a single layer and put under the broiler. Broil about 5 minutes. Turn/toss the cabbage with a spatula and broil about 4 or 5 more minutes.
- Watch closely, however, I like a little charring around the edges. .
I had almost forgotten how good plain toasted almonds were-no salt, no oil, nothing else. In fact, I am munching on some and drinking my herb tea as I type this post. Of course, I like the raw ones also, but there is something special about the taste and crunch of toasted ones.
1, Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Spread the almonds out in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
3. Toast until golden brown and aromatic, about 15-20 minutes.
4. I then store mine in a jar with a tight-fitting lid on the countertop for quick snacking.
I don’t know if you are able to tell clearly or not, but the second picture is after the almonds are toasted. Also, you can always dip them in melted chocolate and let cool for a sweet treat.

Finding raw peanuts might be the hardest part of this little snack. I get raw peanuts at a local country grocery store close to my house. Preheat the oven to 450, and when it reaches that temperature turn it off and put the peanuts in. Peanuts can be in a single layer or more. When they get cool, they will be ready to shell and eat. Growing up we called these “parched peanut.” Hope you enjoy them.

MICROWAVE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
This little recipe can be dangerous. Why? Because now you are only five minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
* 4 Tbsp. S.R. flour
* 3 Tbsp. sugar
* 1 Tbsp. cocoa
* 1 egg
* 3 Tbsp. milk
* 3 Tbsp. oil
* 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips (optional)
* A small splash of vanilla extract
- Add dry ingredients to a large coffee mug and mix well.
- Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
- Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
- Add the chocolate chips (if using them) and vanilla extract, mix again.
- Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 2 ½ -3 minutes on high. Microwave temps vary.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed. Allow it to cool a little, then tip out onto a plate. It’s great served warm with ice cream or cool whip.
This can serve 2 if you feel like sharing. Oh so good!
