we had the most delicious dinner the other night. we bought some pumpkin gnocchi at the italian deli by our house and were trying to figure out the sauce that would best complement it. one of the blogs i follow had a recipe for great pumpkin pasta and it was delicious. we obviously used the gnocchi instead of pasta and hot italian sausage instead of mild but oh man, it was totally decadent and delicious. kiko said it was worth at least $20! i need to learn how to make some good pictures of the food i make.
yesterday morning i made sweet potato pancakes:
SWEET POTATO PANCAKES
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour (use graham flour for a nice taste!)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk (or more)
Mix sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl with egg. Stir in the flour and add the baking powder.
Add up to 1/3 cup of milk, stirring. Stir in 1 tbsp butter.
The mixture should have the consistency of thick, lumpy sauce like an "instant" pancake mix
Place a non-stick or heavy iron skillet over medium heat on top of the stove and add 1/2 tsp butter.
Spoon batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles rise to the surface of the pancakes and break. Approx. 1 to 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, flip the pancakes and cook another 2 minutes.
Remove pancakes from the skillet and keep warm on a covered plate in the oven. Freezes Well!
i got it of this site for healthy toddler food. i doubled the recipe and added cinnamon, nutmeg and a little vanilla and used a gluten free pancake mix instead of flour. they are super delicious!
