I watch Paula’s party all the time. Yesterday, I watched it and saw Paula making Thanksgiving dinner with her boys. I would like to have the recipe for the bread sticks wrapped with bacon and the sweet potato ball also.

Paula Dean Sweet Potato Balls with Coconut recipe:

4 large sweet potatoes
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 cups shredded coconut, sweetened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large marshmallow per potato ball

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, zest and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss the coconut with the sugar and cinnamon. Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating a 2 to 3-inch diameter ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully for the last few minutes of cooking; the expanding marshmallows can cause the potato balls to burst open

Would love to make the pumpkin pie with applesauce. After seeing her show, I went to store and purchased the apple butter. Hope this was right!

Weird but actually a fraction of the post is displaying up for me. Is this the site or my net browser. Should I restart my online browser?

So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”

My mom and I wish to create a weblog much like this for our website, I stumbled across your blog hoping to get ideas on the theme and page layout. I am taking some coding class in college however, not certain that I would have the capacity to create a blog such as this one at this time. Did you code this site on your own or use an expert?

I’ve been searching on the net hoping to get ideas on the way to get my personal weblog coded, your current style together with design are excellent. Did you actually code it yourself or did you recruit a programmer to do it for you?
