Roasted Japanese Sweet Potatoes with Miso Scallion Butter

The Japanese Sweet, which may also be referred to as a Japanese yam, an Oriental, Kotobuki, Satsuma Imo, or Satsumaimo, is a variety of potato that is common in Japan and is now grown in the U.S. as well as many other regions of the world. Japanese sweet potatoes have a dark reddish-brown to rose-colored exterior skin with a creamy white to pale yellow inner flesh. They have a slightly nutty flavor, with hints of chestnut and a drier, starchier texture than other sweet potato varieties. 
These Roasted Japanese Sweet Potatoes with Miso Scallion Butter has a sweet umami taste.

Bacon Wrapped Pickles

I know it sounds crazy, but if you love pickles, you will love these Bacon Wrapped Pickles. They are quick and easy to make and will surprise your guests! You can experiment with different dipping sauces. This one has a spicy ranch sauce, but I think some sort of spicy hot cheese sauce would also be good.

Hot Fudge Brownie Pudding

This Hot Fudge Brownie Pudding is rather decadent. It's crisp on the top and has a gooey pudding in the bottom. It's very similar to the Hot Fudge Pie I make for the holidays. You can take it over the top by adding a scoop of ice cream.

Triple-Citrus Pound Cake

I made this Triple-Citrus Pound Cake because we just moved to a new house that has huge orange and grapefruit trees in the backyard. It's a delicious and easy cake to make.

Gooden Granola

Granola, that breakfast food of oats, nuts and other crunchy ingredients, has a mixed reputation. It is often seen a healthy, comforting and—literally and figuratively-crunchy. The breakfast equivalent of a pair of Birkenstocks. Just as Birkenstocks have shed their hippy image and are now right on trend for fashion and comfort, some granola—especially home-made—is now known simply for being delicious. Carl Parke’s (the head of the Gooden School) granola is just that—richly flavored with spices like ginger and allspice, slightly sweet with brown sugar and honey and delightfully nutty with four kinds of nuts and seeds. This is granola at its best, as good at breakfast as it is at any time of the day or night.
