Lisa Perry's Sweet Potatoes with Toasted Marshmallows
Perry says... “I grew up eating this dish for Thanksgiving. I love anything with marshmallows: they’re white fluffy perfection!”
1 kilo sweet potatoes,boiled and pureed
3/4 cup golden sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 cups marshmallows
Boil sweet potatoes until done. Remove peeling from hot potatoes and mash well, removing all strings. Add all ingredients except marshmallows and cinnamon sugar; mix well. Spray or grease lightly a Pyrex or corning dish. Alternate layers of potatoes, and marshmallows until dish is filled. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar for added flavor. Bake at 350°F until dish is hot. Remove from oven and put marshmallows on top. Place again in oven to brown lightly.
Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles' Cranberry Cosmopolitan
Coles says... “This is obviously my fave holiday recipe! Martha Stewart’s version is the most delish, but I sex it up by doubling the vodka, and that’s a good thing!”
1.5 oz. cranberry and orange vodka (sex it up by doubling it!)
1/2 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. orange flavored liqueur (Cointreau works best)
Orange peel, for garnish
Cranberries, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, orange liqueur, and ice; shake until well combined. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Twist orange peel over cocktail and add to glass. Garnish with skewered cranberries; serve immediately.
