This is such a delicious sweet potato dish, and I don't think it's too early to start planning our Thanksgiving menus.

Sweet Potatoes With Brown Sugar & Apricot Sauce

6 sweet potatoes, cooked, peeled & cut into 1 inch slices
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup apricot nectar
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
1/2 cup pecan bits

Arrange sweet potato slices in a 9x13 inch baking dish. In medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, nectar, butter, lemon peel, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and boil gently for 2 minutes.

Pour over potatoes and sprinkle pecans on top. Bake for 30 minutes at 350, or until heated through and sauce is bubbly.
Serves 10.

NOTE: It said to turn potatoes occasionally while baking, but I don't do that, as don't want to disturb the nuts.

Angel Food Cake

3 eggs, separated
3 ounces cream cheese
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1 packet Splenda
2 Tbsp Davincis Vanilla Syrup (Sugar Free)
1 cup whipping cream
3 packets Splenda
Frozen berries

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until peaks are stiff (about 5 minutes).

In separate bowl, blend cream cheese, yolks, cream of tartar and davincis sugar free syrup. Adding half of the yolk batter at a time to the whites and using a tall spoon (I use an iced tea spoon), make a lazy sine wave through the batter once. Turn the bowl 90 degrees and repeat. Add second half of the yolk mix and repeat sine wave two more times.

In each non-greased pan, carefully spoon ¼ of the batter, spreading about the edges. (If you only have 2 pans, you can refrigerate the batter for the next round.)
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove pans from oven and let cool on a cooling rack.

When ready to serve:
Arrange cooled cakes on plates.
In a bowl, whip heavy cream with two packets Splenda until still peaks form. Spoon cream into the center of each mini cake. Tuck fresh fruit in and on the cakes. Sprinkle one packet of Splenda along the top (optional).
Refrigerate leftovers.
Makes 4 mini cakes.

Does anyone have a recipe for Buckwheat Pancake starter and how to use it? I remember as a kid having starter on the counter and adding to it each day. I know it contains yeast, baking soda and molasses but can't remember how to make it or use it. Thanks. I really enjoy the recipes!

Sue NC requested stuffing recipes in the 10/28 newsletter. This is a favorite for those in our family who do not object to having pecans in the dish. I have other recipes I will submit, depending on what other readers share.

Also, congratulations to Bill on his weight loss, as well to other readers who have lost weight! I am also glad Judy Alaska got her computer problems resolved. I look forward to more delicious recipes from both Bill and Judy.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
This is just a tip a friend gave me.
When biscuits or rolls in a tube are on sale for like a dollar each buy as many as you can afford. Take them home and spread a piece of parchment paper on a baking pan. Unroll the biscuits and lay them on the parchment paper. Pop in the freezer til frozen. Save the little thingy from the wrapper that tells how to bake them. When rolls are frozen put them in a zip loc bag and tape the directions to the bag. That way you will always have rolls on hand to pop in the oven when needed without spending a fortune. I love this idea so I always have rolls on hand when I need them and don't have to run to the store or make my own when time is short.
