Gotta take SO for a medical procedure this morning. When we get home I'll be making a small chocolate cake with a ganache topping. DD, SIL and my fantastic grandson are coming here for dinner and to trick or treat tomorrow. We can't disappoint the little guy.

I made banana nut muffins yesterday, with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I like the recipe from Cooks Illustrated - it calls for plain yogurt, which makes the muffins deliciously moist. So good

"Can she bake an apple pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?" ~ Probably, but we prefer apple. I made a different crust today, using whole wheat pasty flour instead of AP. While Himself thought it tasted just fine, I can't cuddle up to the flavor of a WW pie crust. It was a very tender crust (ie, a real bear to roll out - ended up a lot like a patchwork quilt) and melted in the mouth, so there's that. Crumbled all over the plate when trying to move it from the baking dish, though. I used honeycrisp apples; they were very tasty, but a bit too juicy. Didn't stop us from cleaning all that juice off of the plates though!

I made the small chocolate chip cheesecake yesterday. Thank you for your help GG. It came out perfect. The recipe called for, to sprinkle some chips over the top. I decided to melt them instead and pour over the top as a ganache. Eagle Brand had a cheesecake recipe with a ganache on it. I followed that lead. I had the Chocolate Oreo cookies for the crust, but I also had bought a package of the new Oreo Lemon. My mind started to work. (A miracle folks!) I thought if the citrus orange is a natural with chocolate, then why couldn't the Lemon Oreo do the same. The lemon flavor is outstanding. I have to find more recipes to use these cookies in.

I made the Pumpkin Cheesecake the day before. They are both wrapped up and ready to travel this morning to my daughter's house. (GS lives on first floor.) The pumpkin one is missing one slice though. Thanks to Pirate. Now he wants me to make a small version for him. That recipe was easy to cut in half. I think I am going to doe a search for one made with sweet potatoes.

I made "cookies" for the puppies using pureed beef baby food, whole wheat flour, egg, garlic powder, a touch of S and P. They are VERY HAPPY with their "cookies."

I bet that you could use that recipe and just sub sweet potatoes. I'd look at a sweet potato pie recpie and use that as inspiration for spices. Sprinkling a bit of brown sugar over the crust before adding the filing would be a nice touch like is done in a lot of sweet potato pies.

I have to make something to bring to a friend's house tonight. I'm thinking something simple like brownies with a cream cheese swirl.

I do make a pumpkin cheesecake for my daughter's house with a ginger snap crust. Any leftover cookies goes right along with the cheesecake to her house. SIL loves the cookies almost as much as the cheesecake. The Chocolate Chip cheesecake is for my grandson. He gets one every year for his birthday which is in January. He just gets it a little early in time for the holiday.
