This quick and delicious Blondie recipe is one you want to always have on hand when your sweet tooth is rearing "its ugly head".
You can use sweet potatoes or yams. I have used both. I use the sweet potatoes when I need a little something sweet. I use the Yams when my sweet tooth is out of control. ;)
