    This is a very easy recipe to make and very tasty as well. Canned yams/sweet potatoes can be substituted for fresh, but the flavor is just not quite the same.

    Kings Arms Tavern Sweet Potatoes

    3-pounds sweet potatoes
    ¾-cup light brown sugar, packed divided
    3-tablespoons butter
    5 teaspoons cinnamon
    ½-teaspoon nutmeg
    ¼-teaspoon salt
    1-cup milk

    Preheat oven to 400º
    Grease 1½ quart casserole
    Cook sweet potatoes in boiling salted water until done; drain peel and mash them.

    Stir in all the remaining ingredients except 2 tablespoons of sugar.

    Turn the mixture in to prepared casserole and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

    Bake at 400º for 30 minutes.

    It’s not so far from Thanksgiving…. so it’s time to start planning if you want to try something different from your norm. I don’t consider any of the food preparation for this holiday hard, because I enjoy prepareing this meal most of all I think. I don’t know what “easy” means to you. I do a boneless large, fresh organic turkey breast that’s stuffed, then rolled jellyroll style. It’s a fair amount of work, but well worth it in the end. So I won’t give you that recipe.

    Maybe something like sliced sweet potatoes roasted with rosemary would be a nice, simple side dish?

    Take a shallow pan (like a cookie sheet) and put a little olive oil on it & spread it around the pan. Place sliced sweet potatoes (scrubbed with skins on) on the pan, and turn each slice over so both sides get coated with oil. Finely chop some dried rosemary, and sprinkly over each piece. Put enough aside to sprink the other side. Bake at 400 Deg. F. turning when they start to brown. Sprinkle 2nd side with rosemary. You can turn the broiler on them the last few minutes of cooking. This crisps them up a little.

    1 (7 oz.) pkg. elbow macaroni (about 2 c.)
    8 hard-cooked eggs
    1 (6 1/2 oz.) can tuna, drained
    1 c. chopped celery
    1/2 c. chopped onion
    1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
    1/4 tsp. ground pepper
    2/3 c. mayonnaise or salad dressing

    Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and cool thoroughly, about 30 minutes. Cut 7 eggs in half horizontally; reserve 1 egg.
    In large bowl, combine tuna, egg halves, celery, onion, parsley and pepper. Add macaroni and mayonnaise, tossing gently to combine. Chill at least 3 hours before serving. To serve, cut reserved egg in thin slices crosswise, and garnish salad with slices.

    1 (1 lb.) bag frozen peas, thawed
    1 c. heavy cream
    4 strips bacon, chopped
    1/2 c. Bermuda onion, chopped
    1 tbsp. flour
    2 tbsp. cooking sherry
    1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    1 c. canned mushrooms
    Salt and pepper

    Brown bacon pieces. Saute onion in bacon grease until brown. Add flour and cream, stirring constantly. As sauce thickens add seasonings and sherry. Mushrooms and peas are added last, stir gently. Transfer to a baking dish or casserole (can be made ahead). Warm in 275 degree oven.


    1 qt. water
    1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
    1 tsp. whole cloves
    1 tsp. coriander seed
    2 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks
    2 qt. cranberry juice cocktail
    2 c. pineapple juice
    4 c. grapefruit juice
    1 c. raisins for garnish

    Combine the water and spices in a large saucepan, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the juices and bring just to boiling. Remove from heat.


    2 c. cooked wild rice
    2 c. cooked white rice
    4 strips bacon
    1 med. onion, chopped
    1/2 tsp. thyme
    1 bay leaf
    2 tbsp. finely minced parsley
    1 lg. can sliced mushrooms with liquid
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 to 1/2 c. chicken broth

    Cook rices according to package instructions. Saute bacon until crispy; remove and crumble. Saute onions in bacon drippings until soft and yellow. Add remaining ingredients using enough chicken broth (duck is better!) for a moist dressing. Season with salt and pepper. (I added some sage, also.) Bake 30 minutes at 325 degrees. Excellent with turkey, ducks, or other game birds. Serves 8.

    sometimes my brother makes scallop potatoes instead of mashed.

    You just cut up about 4-5 potatoes into thin slices, place them in some Corningwear, let it simmer in some cream and butter until the potatoes are soft, then broil cheese on the top. They are soooo good.
