Pumpkin Glazed Apricot Sweet Potatoes

4-6 Sweet Potatoes diced or sliced
1/2 cup butter
Pumpkin Pie Seasoning
Dash of Salt

Cook covered in large pan until potatoes begin to get tender.

1/2 cup of chopped dried or fresh apricots
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 butter

Add apricots and pecans into the pan of potatoes with additional butter and cook until potatoes are tender enough to eat.

1/4 cup maple or pumpkin syrup

Add syrup over potatoes and stir occassionally until the potatoes are covered and the syrup has reduced down to a glaze. Serve warm or cold and enjoy.

Kool-Aid Pie

Kool-Aid that will make you look like a queen in the kitchen. And before you turn your nose up at it, you have to try it.

2 packages of kool-aid or 1 tub of Crystal Light (add 1/2 cup sugar if you use the unsweetened kool-aid)
2 bricks of cream cheese
2 tubs of whipped cream (I use sugar free or light)
1 pie crust (I use a chocolate graham or crushed oreo depending on the flavor)

Whip together all the ingredients and put in the pie crust (already baked if using regular).  Leave in the fridge for an hour and serve. I like to garnish mine with Lindt truffles, chocolate drizzle, chocolate chips or chocolate shavings.

Simple and delish!
