Have you ever had sweet potato pie? Sometimes when I mention sweet potato pie to people they look at me like I’m some sort of crazy person and say things like “sweet potato in a dessert!?” To that all I have to say is; Hell YES sweet potato in a dessert!
But I also have to clarify that when I say “sweet potato” what I really mean is yam. Because when you go to a typical grocery store yams are labelled as the ones with an orange interior (and this is what you want for this recipe), while sweet potatoes have a white interiors (not what you want for this recipe.)
I’m not sure why we as a culture decided to collectively confuse ourselves by swapping the names around when it comes to things like “sweet potato fries” or “sweet potato casserole” or “sweet potato pie” But let’s be honest saying “Yam Pie”just doesn’t have the same effect… amiright?
Where are all my banana bread lovers at!?
Random fun fact; I edit the Banana Bread feed over on thefeedfeed website. It’s pretty much one of my favourite things ever, because I LOVE banana bread. It’s kind of like one of those things that no matter how much I eat of it – I can never get sick of it.
I am always on the look out on Instagram for new and delicious banana bread recipes that I can add to the feed each month when I add my updates. Why am I telling you this? Well, because I just finished updating the feed the other day & banana bread has pretty much been the one and only thing on my mind ever since. Also, if you are a banana bread lover – much like myself – I think you would seriously enjoy the eye candy that this feed has to offer & you can check the feed out here
I’m just going to take a moment here and say that if you don’t like pumpkin spice – you are probably not going to like me anymore, because it’s about to get reallllly pumpkin spicy on the blog over the next few weeks.
I’m just going to come right out and say it…. I’m a pumpkin spice addict. Seriously, all jokes aside I am actually addicted – Like when Starbucks brings the pumpkin spice latte back every September I can’t even begin to explain to you how much happiness brews in my soul… all because of a latte with some pumpkin spice. I’m not ashamed of it. 😀
And to tell you the truth, I will pretty much stop at nothing to put a pumpkin spice twist on all the baked goodies I can think of. Case in point; These Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns…. yep. This definitely happened, and it was a joyous occasion. And as if the Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns weren’t enough on their own… I topped em’ off with Maple Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting – which is nothing short of a mouthful, but also nothing short of just downright amazing.
I shared this recipe over on the Tastes of Lizzy T website & I cannot wait for you guys to try them out! So check out the post here & bake up some pumpkin spice happiness!
Happy Baking lovelies <3 <3 <3

Okay so, being that it’s Friday, I think we can all agree that it’s already going to be a good day but – I feel like we could make it even better if we involved some cashew butter in our lives… and maybe some pretzels…. and possibly some chocolate. Mhmmm, everything is better with chocolate ja’feel me??
Sweeeet, then let’s get right into this one… Cashew Butter Blondies w/ Dark Chocolate Chunks & Pretzels. I mean come on, do I even have to explain myself further here?
