Sweet Potato Bread with Crumble Topping or Not?


KITCHEN 101 is about healthy easy recipes and simplified cooking for you. I happen to love this recipe because it is so easy and such a delicious quick bread.

This recipe has two options.  You can make it with or without the Crumble Topping.  Now, if you use the topping, the recipe isn’t diabetic, however, without the topping the Yummy Yam bread is a diabetic-friendly recipe.  I hope you enjoy this sweet potato recipe as much as I do.



Toss Away Those Old Pot Holders and Wait Until You Try These Oven Mitts for Baking

I have these heat resistant silicon oven mitts and love them. I think they are easier to grasp hold of the pan and use since they are short. Personally, these are my favorite because they don’t get dirty. My pot holders all look horrible even after I wash them. They are inexpensive, easy to store and do the job.

They also make a cute gift (for yourself). There’s also silicon baking cookware that I have used.  You might want to check it out from baking sheets to Bundt pans.
