Here is Hidemi’s winning recipe for Brown Butter Sweet Potato Crumble:
For the topping:
- 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
- 2 cups Granola
- 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Raisins
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons Butter
For Brown Butter Sweet Potato:
- 2-3 Sweet Potatoes (about 1 pound)
- 3 tablespoons Butter
- 2 tablespoons Honey
Directions: Peel and cut the sweet potatoes in half length-wise then slice them 1/4 inch thick. Put the sweet potatoes on a microwave-safe plate, cover in plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until tender. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat until foaming subsides. Turn off the heat and let stand until browned. Then stir in honey and sweet potatoes. Toss to coat well. Transfer the sweet potatoes into an 8×8 baking dish. Start making the topping in a medium bowl by mixing together flour, granola, cinnamon and brown sugar. Add the butter and work it in with your fingertips until well blended and crumbly. Fold in raisins. Sprinkle the topping over the sweet potatoes. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25-28 minutes.

Before we get started on ideas for enjoying those beautiful fall colors around your home, we thought we’d share an awesome fall recipe that we saw on Pinterest. Everyone knows that the two big flavors of the fall season are apples and pumpkins … that’s why we suggest drinking a nice warm apple cider while you enjoy this Peekaboo Pumpkin Pound Cake (at left) that looks almost too pretty to eat (Click the link to be directed to SheKnows.com for the full recipe)!
The combination of pumpkin bread and pound cake would be delicious enough, but this recipe also includes a brown butter pecan icing that’s out of this world! One slice of this tasty treat is sure to give you a boost of energy to help you stay warm during the crisp fall air.
Though it may be hard to admit after seeing this recipe, there is more to fall than just pumpkin flavoring. For us, it’s all about the warm, rich colors that the fall season brings! Our favorite thing to do during this time of year is to see all of the leaves change into deep shades of red and orange and fall off the trees. We love the colors of fall so much, we’ve come up with some great Fall Decorations that will help you enjoy those beautiful colors around your home, too!
The Autumn Hues Monogram Personalized Garden Flag, one of our customers’ favorite fall gifts, has a design filled with leaves, acorns, pine and berries featured in vibrant colors. This enchanting piece artfully displays any single initial, along with any name or address you choose, to warmly welcome others to hearth and home! The design is printed on a removable flag so you can replace it with other designs throughout the year, as desired. You can personalize the flag alone to be interchanged for just $19.95 (Shop during our Fall Favorites sale now through Sunday to personalize the flag for just $14.95), or add our optional garden flag stand, which is sold separately, for $11.95. After you’ve acquired the flag stand, you can have fun personalizing other flag designs to interchange for all of the holidays, seasons or for upcoming special occasions like birthdays, graduations or other milestones! Browse through all of our designs in our Personalized Garden Flag Store. For those of you who love the Autumn Hues design as much as we do, be sure to check out our personalized doormat and yard stake that also feature the design.

Another great way to welcome friends and family to your home this fall is to personalize the Autumn Greetings Personalized Yard Stake and Magnet for you home. Our exclusive design features a border of falling leaves in rich, warm tones with a delicate leaf background. It’s sure to provide a distinctive finish to your home while attractively displaying your home address or family name. Personalize the magnet with the yard stake for $32.95 or the magnet alone for $15.95 (now only $24.70 and $11.95, respectively when you shop before our Fall Favorites Sale ends Sunday).

With PMall’s Christmas in July Sale going on this week I was looking through all of the beautiful Personalized Christmas Ornaments and started to realize just how special some of these ornaments can be!
There are a few unique PMall designs that are extra special because they help you capture a specific moment in time so in the future you’ll be able to use the ornaments to remember some of your favorite Christmas moments!
The My Wish List© Personalized Ornament, which you can personalize with any name, year and 4 items, can act like a mini scrapbook that helps you preserve some of your favorite holiday memories without all the mess! In the future you’ll look back and be thankful that you personalized the My Wish List design for each of your children year after year, because you’ll be able to reminisce about what toys and gifts they loved most each Christmas while they were growing up!
This adorable ornament can help you look back and remember some of their funniest and sweetest memories like when your son was going through his superhero phase and only wanted Spider-Man action figures and clothes (by the way, if your son is going through that phase now, you should check out our brand new line of Personalized Spider-Man Gifts!), or when your daughter asked Santa for a little brother or sister.
The ornament is usually only $12.95 but thanks to the Christmas in July Sale it’s marked down to just $10.35 from now through Sunday! Start your new tradition now and you’ll love having the opportunity to share all the fun stories with your kids when they’re older (especially when your daughter is older and fighting with her new younger sibling you can pull out the ornament and remind her that this is what wanted! )
PMall’s exclusive designs not only help you capture your kids’ precious moments, but your whole family’s favorite moments, too! With the Our Family© Engraved Message Ornament you can create your own mini scrapbook that can display an entire year’s worth of family events. You can have this elegant glass ornament laser engraved with up to 9 lines of personalization – those 9 lines can include your family’s name, address or your favorite family highlights of the past year, such as your vacation spots, activities, inside jokes and anything else you can think of! This beautiful ornament is usually $14.95 but is currently 70% off and can be personalized for only $4.48! Now that’s a deal you can’t pass up! Just think you’ll be able to start a new tradition where every year when you’re decorating the tree, you’ll be able to look back as a family and remember each year’s fun vacations and important accomplishments and help decide as a family what you’d like to include on the following year’s ornament!
But you don’t need to have kids to create one of these “scrapbook ornaments.”
The Our Life Together© Personalized Couple’s Ornament is the perfect way for newlyweds to remember the details of their wedding while also starting their own ornament collection as a married couple! The stunning glass ornament is usually $14.95 but is on sale for only $4.48 until Sunday and can be engraved with the couple’s names and up to 9 lines of personalization. If you’re personalizing it as a wedding keepsake you can include the ceremony’s location, date, the first song you danced to, the flowers you used and more.
However, I think this design is a perfect way to celebrate your anniversary year after year – after all, who says you have to save this beautiful gifts for Christmas!? Each year you can personalize it with all your firsts (vacation, purchasing a home, adopting a pet, etc.), triumphs (promotions at work, buying a new car, getting pregnant) and struggles that you went through and overcame together (losing a job or loved one) so you can look back and be proud of what you have made it through together as a team.
Whether it’s for your anniversary, your kids or your entire family, you are sure to find the perfect PMall Personalized Christmas Ornament for you! So put down the glue stick, close the scrapbooks and stow the memory boxes … forget about all of the fuss and head over to PMall to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake before the Christmas in July Sale ends Sunday, July 8th!
It may only take you a couple minutes to create your gorgeous personalized ornament, but you’re sure to enjoy your little time capsule for many years to come!
