The Savory And The Sweet

Hello from HEAB and HEABlet. :)


Have you tried the Hawaiian Baked Sweet Potatoes yet?


Finished mine off for breakfast. Great way to start the day!

And last night, I made a great meal to end the day…

Sweet Potato Meatballs


1 pound grass fed finished beef

1 small baked sweet potato, sliced

1/2 small yellow onion, chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp thyme


Pre-heat oven to 350℉. Pulse sweet potato, onion, celery, and garlic in food processor.


Add remaining ingredients and process until well combined. Roll into meatballs, and bake in a greased baking dish for 55 minutes.


Eat atop mustard stir-fry veggies and enjoy every bite!

Dessert was Jammin’…


The very thoughtful Mimi sent me some Jammies Jams, and they are nothing short of amazing. The Shanghai Blackberries contains organic wild blackberries, cane sugar, organic Meyer lemon juice, organic anise, organic cinnamon, and organic cloves, and here is the description for the Chocolate Pear from the Jammies website: Sweet Anjou pears are laced with Godiva Dark Chocolate in this special jam which harkens the onset of spring. Chunks of pear are floating in a Tahitian Vanilla scented syrup before cuddling in the jar with shaved 70% dark chocolate. Elegance in a jar. Jealous? 😉 I ate both atop some oat bran with crunchy peanut butter.


The Shanghai Blackberries contains a wonderful combination of flavors. It isn’t overly sweet, and I love the spices, especially the cloves. As far as the Chocolate Pear goes, no words my friends, no words. Just re-read the description above and try not to drool. Thanks so much Mimi – I can’t wait to experiment more with my jams!

I’m on a bit of a jam kick these days, and I’m curious, what is your favorite jam or jelly?
