    Haha! I'll let you slide on the dessert thing...I do like sweet potato pie and sweet potato cookies.

    I'm not sure if this is unpopular or not....

    Marshmallows do not belong in savory dishes.

    THAT I can side with.

    @pancakerunner. (How on earth do you make @ usernames in blue/hyperlink???). To grill the sweet potatoes, do you wrap them in foil tightly and for the whole time? How long would you guess for a typical/medium sized potato? Our grill is also a smoker, so I would guess at some point to unwrap them? Thanks, I am a newbie at grilling.

    Wrap in tinfoil! Look up campfire sweet potatoes. A lot of recipes out there. Would work on the grill too I suppose 😍

    Yes!! There are cakes, sweet potato cookies, biscuits from sweet potato. I would take a sweet potato with melted ( vegan) butter, whipped cream or marshmallow fluff, maple syrup, cinnamon- mmm

    I love overcooked sweet potato to where its chewy. Slightly burnt popcorn in clumps- yum

    Christmas fruitcake- YUM! I don't eat it but love it. Now if I found a plant based gluten free fruitcake...
  • PAPYRUS3PAPYRUS3 Member Posts: 9,187 Member Member Posts: 9,187 Member
    yes...I'm feeling the yumminess vibe towards a 'good' Christmas fruitcake....I'm particular though - lots of dates/figs/prunes and various nuts and cherries - no orange or raisins/pineapple though lol!

    I like fruitcake full of garish candied fruit and a good dose of booze.

    You know, I'm rarely in the mood for straight up sugary sweet monstrosities like Peeps, but every spring I buy one package of Peeps and thoroughly enjoy them with a cup of strong coffee or tea. And then I don't want to see another until next year lol. Nostalgia for me maybe

    My Mom likes them, but only if they are stale. She'll open the package and let them sit out for a few days until they get a little crunchy.

    Also, she only likes the chick-shaped ones (no bunnies or any of that), because something about the sugar-to-marshmallow ratio.
