One Potato, Two...........

First comes the BUTTAH...
and then the sprinkling of the  BROWN SUGAH.. comes the MARSHMALLOWS....


You know what they say about MARSHMALLOWS.....


...and, what's a BAKED SWEET POTATO
without PECANS...
Oh, yeah, baby.....

Finally, a generous sprinkling of CINNAMON...
 According to Jerry Seinfeld:
" It should be on tables at restaurants along with salt and pepper.
 Anytime anyone says, "Oh This is so good. What's in it?" 
The answer invariably comes back, Cinnamon. Cinnamon. Again and again."

absolutely DELICIOUS....

 and TO DIE FOR...

It's so rich and filling,
I can only eat a half.
Since Mr. Sweet doesn't like his sweet potato SWEET,(where IS he from..??)
he won't eat the other half....sooo
I fold the skin over the other half, cover it in Saran Wrap, pop in fridge
and have it with my next meal.

 It's the addition of marshmallows
for me...
that's what takes it all over the top.

I dearly luv marshmallows.

I hope you have a
MARSHMALLOW kind of day.

I am feeling almost back to normal...still resting during the day.
I am FAR from finished with my re-doing rooms and not making 
HUGE changes but I am beginning to see the light.


  1. That looks so delish. And you're right about cinnamon.It makes everything taste better.

  2. Yummy looks so delicious. Thanks for sharing this with us. I am so glad you are feeling better. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  3. Hi Bj, I love sweet potatoes but no else here likes them. Yours looks so delicious made this way. It's looks like a dessert to me!
    Have a nice Friday and weekend.

  4. I wonder who was the first person who decided to put marshmallows on sweet potatoes? I know it's popular but it does seem like a random combination.

  5. I love sweet potatoes but not with marshmaloows. Love it with butter, salt and pepper. I am more of a savory not a sweet type of gal.

  6. Sugar Overload Alert!!!!!


    Never had anything but butter, on my baked sweet potatoes. But that brown sugar and pecans and cinnamon, sound tempting......

    Sweet hugs,

  7. I have one sweet potato left in my pantry! I'll skip the marshmallows and add the cinnamon, brown sugar, pecans and butter. Love them ~ absolutely love them!!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  8. I love those buggers. So flippin' good. And a girlfriend got me to swap them out for tinned pumpkin, when making pumpkin muffins. Delish. And soooo soft.

    Have a great weekend. I'm sitting for a short break and then back to cleaning the hall where the washer and dryer are. The plan was to sew but I'm still having fun on the house projects.

    Sewing soon though.

  9. I LOVE sweet potatoes like that. To make them just a little more sinful, I add caramel sauce (like for sundaes). YUM! I got that idea from Texas Roadhouse.


  10. I love sweet potatoes, but I have to admit, I would eat the marshmallows on the side ;) Have you ever tried oven fried sweet potatoes, cut in wedges, tossed in olive oil and baked? My girls used to get excited every time I made them.

  11. Never eaten a sweet potato, but I must admit that yours looks very good.

    God bless.

  12. Oh my goodness, BJ! I have NEVER had a sweet potato with marshmallows..OR pecans, for that matter. With DH being diabetic, I used to put a little butter & some Splenda Brown Sugar & cinnamon on ours. I will try it your way next time, for sure!
    I have to tell you, I RAN to stick some raffia beneath the little pumpkin I have under my cloche & now I'm looking for a cute hanging tag like yours. You've inspired me twice today...thanks!! {{HUGS}}

    p.s. Did you hear that CeeKay passed away? So sad

  13. That sweet potato concoction makes me weak in the knees! Indeed, where does Mr. Sweet come from??!!


  14. Yummy gooey good. So glad to hear you are feeling better. Hope you are totally well today!

  15. Yum! I need one of those for lunch about now.
    Enjoy the weekend.

  16. Oh BJ, I love sweet potatoes. I have never made them that way, but I am going to try it. It looks so goooooooood.
    Have a great weekend..

  17. Oh girlfriend, that is just how I LOVE sweet potatoes!!! Now you have me craving one.
    I'm glad you're feeling better and I can't wait to see your room.

  18. I can eat a sweet potato, but only with none of that stuff on it! I know I am weird!

  19. Mr. Z. would love that sweet potato ... I will take mine without the marshmallows. Looks so good though.

  20. Oh my, that fifth pic looks like heaven! Enjoy:@)

  21. Hello Miss bj, Guess what I'm making this weekend after seeing this post! Yes, I am making the delicious looking sweet potatoes. I can't wait for Thanksgiving or Christmas when we always have the casseroles but this will be just the right size until then. Love your pretty vignette with the cloche and cup.
    Have a great weekend..........

  22. BJ, I think Mr. Sweet and I are from the same place. I like my sweet potatoes baked or roasted just plain. '-)
    But I do like marshmallows! Enjoy your sweet dish!

  23. OMG...I luv sweet, sweet potatoes! You do add those pecans (which I usually forget to do) and I KNOW that sends the concoction over the top!! That's such a great way to save the other half that you didn't eat!!

    Hope you have a great PS weekend!!

    L, Dana

  24. BJ, That looks so good . I could eat that for breakfast. LOL. Now I have to get some sweet potatoes. Hope you have a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  25. Could that be construed as " Overloaded", but it looks and I am sure tastes very delicious!!!

  26. Yummy! I love sweet potatoes and will eat them plain. My mom would slice cold cooked SP length ways into 'planks' and fry in butter and brown sugar. Caramelized sweet potatoes. Happy Pink Saturday!

  27. Looks yummy, but I might lean more toward mister bj's inkling . . .
    You sure make everything look tempting though!

  28. This recipe looks delish. Sweet potatoes are popular at our house.

  29. Yummm...I love sweet potatoes too...and of course the marshmallow is the topper of them all!!


Your comments just make my day....thanks so much!
