Menu – Ham with Sweet Potato and Apple Dish

Print Friendly


To frost your cake quickly, sprinkle chocolate chips on top of it as soon as you bring it out of the oven. Once the chocolate chips melt, gently spread. Dusting with powdered sugar is another quick and less expensive topping for a cake.

It’s always hard to get to those little nooks and crannies on small kitchen appliances and dishes when you are cleaning. Here are 3 brushes I keep on hand to make these items easier to clean – a baby bottle brush, nipple brush or cake decorating tip brush and a toothbrush. You may not need all of these but pick a couple of the ones you think you will use the most.

There are days when I am brain dead while cooking and I can’t remember if I have salted something or not. It this happens to you a lot too, salt the item first and then immediately add the pepper. Then when you see the specks of pepper you know you have salted it.

Sweet Potato and Apple Dish

6 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. each ground cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

Place the apples and potatoes in a greased shallow 2 1/2 qt. baking dish. Combine the rest of the ingredients and sprinkle on top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Then uncover and bake about 15 minutes longer or until tender.


Fruit Cream Cake

I used pineapple in this recipe, but you can use any kind of fruit like peaches, apricots or something else.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup milk
1 (3 1/2 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 (9 oz.) carton of whipped topping

Make the cake according to the package directions and bake in a 9×13 pan. Cool. Mix cream cheese, milk and pudding and spread over the cake. Spread pineapple over that and top with whipped topping. Refrigerate until serving.

    I have a question… Do you mix everything (but potatoes and apples) together and put on top -or- do you mix the dry ingredients and spread them over top then drizzle with the maple syrup and melted butter? It just sounds a little gooey to mix it all together. But I have apples and maple syrup from our trees and sweet potatoes from the garden – it sounds like a recipe I need to try. :)

      Kristine the original recipe says to mix it all together but I am not sure that it really would make that big of a difference so you can try drizzling it if you want.
