Orange Dishes for Autumn

Two delectable dishes that I love look colorful and inviting on an autumn tablescape, Tangy Sweet Yams...

and Orange Cow Ice Cream...

 This

Plus This.....
                                               Makes the Best Dessert!


What makes them both tangy and orange? Orange juice. These dishes can easily be served at home for one or two or for a crowd. Though the yams satisfy a sweet tooth from marshmallows and brown sugar, who could resist a dish of ice cream topped with orange juice poured over it?

Tangy Sweet Yams
5-6 yams, peeled and cut in small chunks 1/3 can frozen orange juice (no water added) 1/2 large bag mini marshmallows 2 cups brown sugar Boil yams 'til tender in electric skillet or large pot on stove. Drain most of the liquid. Add the frozen orange juice, brown sugar, and marshmallows. If it's too tangy, add more brown sugar and marshmallows.
 
HAPPY AUTUMN!

You have a fun blog! I want to try the ice cream and orange juice idea. As for fried scones...I cheat. I use Rhodes roll dough thawed and then pulled flat like a pizza. Then toss it in hot oil for a couple of minutes, flip it and cook for one more and it's done. So easy!

Sandy, that sounds de-licious! I have to try it. Do you put filling in the scones? Thank you for the compliment on the blog.
