I love to bake. When I was first married I baked almost everyday. I was a mini-Martha Stewart in training. The downside of the baking was weight gain. As much as I enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen, my husband only liked lemon pound cake and chocolate chip cookies. Since variety is the spice of life I baked all sorts of confections and ate most of them too. Ahem.
I have more will power now and have learned to give my goodies as gifts. A win, win for everyone! The teachers at my son's school look forward to the holidays because I am known for my baking.
Well, the baking has begun. Last week I had the opportunity to check out the relaunch of the iVillage food website. I saw these sweet potato biscuits and knew that I had to make them. I love that on the site I am able to see the recipes on my laptop in kitchen view - no printing out of recipes, I just set up my laptop and cook away. Wonderful.

Anyhow, I tried the sweet potato biscuits and they came out okay. My little helper is really enjoying this cooking thing and I learned something too. Although these biscuits don't rise much because of the sweet potato, mine really didn't rise at all. I guess that is what I get for using expired baking powder. Can you believe that Walmart was out of baking powder today? And as much as I like baking I refused to go out shopping again today!
Anyhow, the biscuits taste great and the next time I make them I will probably add more brown sugar to the recipe. I think the biscuits should be so a tad bit sweeter. For the full recipe check out iVillage.
