Go ahead and put this one on the dessert table. It was very good, but wow, it was sweet. I could have skipped the pumpkin pie (but I’d already baked it, so we ate it, too!).

Recipe source: How to Grill by Steven Raichlen, for the burgers, and, for the sweet potato sticks

BP is my grill guy, and the burgers were his project. He did a great job. They had good flavor, and they were done just perfect. The slice of pancetta and white cheddar cheese really finished it off well. Nice job, BP.

The baked sweet potato sticks were good (although, I love almost anything with sweet potatoes), but I could have left them in the oven longer so they would have been crispier. However, we had guests for supper and I didn’t want to keep them waiting.

I should mention that my mom also contributed to this meal. (She was one of the supper guests.) BP loves her scalloped pineapple, and he requested it when she asked if she could bring anything. It was especially delicious this time, and we all enjoyed that.

34. sweet potato cheesecake bars

leave a comment »

Recipe source: Simple & Delicious, March/April 2010

If I tell you these bars had granola and sweet potatoes in them, you’d think they were healthy, right? Yeah, then I added butter and sugar and chocolate.

They were delicious. Although you can’t tell in the photo, these had three layers: a cake crust, a cream cheese layer and then a granola/white chocolate topping. Three layers of deliciousness.

These tasty little cheesecake bars were a hit with both our friends and the folks at the office (though, those folks’ll eat just about anything).
