Sweet Potatoes Recipe

A fantastic recipe for sweet potato. Enjoy!
2 1/4 lb Sweet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 ds Pepper
2 cup of Milk
1 ds Cinnamon
3 tablespoon of Brown sugar
1/4 cup of Raisiins
3 tablespoon of melted butter
Mash sweet potatoes by putting through a sieve or beating in an electric
beater or using a potato masher or food mill.
Add milk gradually (if you add it too fast it splashes and is hard to mix in).
Mix in the remaining ingredients. Put in buttered casserole. Heat through
(bake in slow oven 250 degrees F.) for 20-30 minutes, or in microwave).
Cover top with marshmallows. Return to oven until marshmallows are
slightly melted and a bit brown. (If the oven is too hot, the marshmallows
will disappear!) This step cannot be done in the microwave.

Coleslaw Recipe

A great coleslaw recipe!
1 cabbage
1 tablespoon of Lemon juice
1 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1/2 cup of onion, diced very fine
Cut the core out of the cabbage and cut it into pieces. My mother likes to
cut it into big pieces; I like to cut it into little pieces. I think she
wants to make certain that nobody will accuse her of having used a food
processor. Mix the pepper and lemon juice and onion in with the cabbage.
Add the mayonnaise, mix well and refrigerate.
Vary the amount of mayonnaise according to how much you are worried about calories.
Vary the amount of onion if you do or don't like raw onion.
