Candied Yams

This past Thanksgiving as I was assigning everyone their dishes, we realized nobody had sweet potato.

Now, I have never eaten a bite of sweet potato, much less ever made them.
I figured everyone would want the "traditional" dish with the mini marshmallows...so I googled it and came up with this recipe.

I ended up doubling it as there are many, many of us.
Um, in the interest of full disclosure, I didn't know until I opened the can and placed them in the dish. I looked at them, thought about it, looked again....and decided to brave the store the day before Thanksgiving.

Imagine my surprise to find next to nobody in the store! Psyched!

I made them, they got eaten by most all...but it still wasn't eaten by me.

Maybe one year I will brave it.

Ingredients:
1 (29 oz) can sweet potato
¼ Cup butter, cut into pieces
½ Cup brown sugar
1 ½ Cups miniature marshmallows


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Place sweet potato in medium baking dish
3. Place butter cubes all over the potato
4. Sprinkle with brown sugar
5. Top with miniature marshmallows
6. Bake 25 minutes

Chocolate Filled Crescents

I forget what I needed multiple packs of crescent rolls for, probably some party type food, but I stocked up at BJ's.

As is the general refrigerator rule, eventually the remaining tubes of rolls found there way to the very back, deepest depths of the fridge.

Washing the shelves, I found them. Hm. What now?
A quick Google search brought me to this Pillsbury recipe.

Everything on hand? Check!

Score!

 Ingredients:

1 Can crescent dinner rolls
½ Cup mini chocolate chips
Powdered Sugar

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350
2. Separate dough into 8 triangles
3. Place tablespoon of chocolate chips on wide end of each triangle
4. Roll up, starting at widest end to smallest point
5. Place on ungreased cookie sheet
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown
7. Sprinkle with powdered sugar
