I got the idea for this recipe from the Hungry Girl 200 reciepes for under 200 cal cookbook, just substituting chicken for tilapia. It was soooo good and takes care of the BBQ and sweet cravings in one shot. My kids even loved it. Hey, it got a picky three year old to eat...

An easy and fast mashed sweet potato recipe that the kids will love. I don't add the spices to the sweet potatos because my kids like them plain but please adjust the recipe to your families tastes.

These muffins get a thumbs up from my 4-year old. She got the recipe off of the Holly Hobbie website. You can substitute for the sugar if you want. I also added about a cup of fresh grated carrots which added some more nutrition.
