Sweet Potato Swedish Pancackes - the BEST!

We like Swedish pancakes, we like sweet potatos. Why not put them together?

Sweet Potato Pancakes in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: make mashed sweet potatos.

Step 2: begin to make swedish pancakes but reduce the recipe by a little bit of flour and instead use the leftovers from your mashed sweet potatoes.


People Involved: 

Mashed Sweet Potatoes With Cinnamon and Curry

This is a pretty simple recipe:

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • Dash of cinnamon (to taste)
  • Dash of curry (to taste)
  • Dash of salt

Peel and cube the sweet potato and then boil the sweet potato for 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain away the water, add butter and potato to a mixing bowl and smash and blend as you would regular mashed potatoes. This serves as a side dish for 2 to 3 people.

People Involved: 

Slow Cooked Beef Soup with Bay Leaves and Red Wine


  • 1 cup beef bullion
  • Peel a couple of potatoes and cube them
  • Peel carrots and make them bite sized as well
  • Add a couple of chopped hunks of celery
  • Dredge the beef "stew meat" in flour/salt/pepper and sear it in a hot frying pan
  • Pour on chopped tomatoes
  • Cubed onion
  • Garlic
  • Salt/pepper
  • Bay leaves, oregano, taragon, cilantro?
  • Red wine

Pour it all in the crock pot, with veggies on bottom, and cook for 2-4 hours until the meat is really tender.

People Involved: 

Oven Roasted Garlic (to combine with cheese and smear on toasted bread or crackers)

Start with:

  • 4 garlic heads
  • 2 ounces of olive oil
  • 12 ounces of water (approximately)

Cut the tops off the garlic heads so you can see the cloves and brush the olive oil across the heads of garlic. Place the heads in a shallow casserole dish and fill with water 1 inch deep. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes - until the garlic is soft and lightly browned.

To eat: remove the garlic with a knife and spread it on a bit of toast or cracker. Delicious when combined with some soft cheeses.
