Recently finding myself with a lone sweet potato in my fridge and hoping for some inspiration, I did a quick search on my site to see what sweet potato recipes I’ve shared with you.

Cream Cheese Pumpkin Spice Spread

In 10th grade at my high school, health education class was mandatory for all students. In my class, there was a kid named Tim. Tim was a nice enough kid; the sporty type and on the hockey team, but not necessarily overly health-conscious. Every morning the teacher would ask Tim what he had for breakfast. Some days it was cereal with milk, some days it was eggs with toast.

Would you rather eat a donut, muffin, or slice of bread if they were all baked (not fried) and made out of the same batter? Hmm…interesting. Last year I came up with a recipe for Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts that both Mike and I went crazy for. (And this is nothing short of a miracle since he’s a self-proclaimed pumpkin-hater.) Since then, I’ve wanted to re-work the batter into muffins and/or quick bread....
