Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

I recently tried to make this recipe and followed it to the T
only change was I used a regular muffin Tin Tray with Liners.
However the Cakes had no flavor & were very SOFT textured
even after 2 day of refrigerating. I will be trying this again
along with maybe a different recipe but this one is the one I used..

Life Update

My car has been fixed I picked up yesterday.
I have decided that I need to clean my car out since having a rental I realize how bad my car really was until I got the rental and I only need 1 box to keep all my must have items in the car for both daily use at work and personal life.
Plus 1 extra item my trusty air compressor pump that comes in very handy
I have saved alot of people including myself time changing a tire by just pumping it up enough to get it to a repair shop quickly.

Over the last week I have been feeling under the weather & going to bed early trying to fight getting sick must be something going around. By 4-5 in the afternoon I am ready for bed so we have been eating early or doing quick meals since I have no desire to cook..

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos from AR

Price $ 5.00 to make this meal since I had spice on hand

$1 - sweet potato
$1 - tortillas
$2- Shredded Cheese
$1 -can beans

I cut the recipe in 1/2 as it was only for me and I just wanted to make sure I liked it first before making a whole 12 servings and throwing it out..
I used 1 can of black beans only due to what I had in the house trying to make sure not to spend Extra $$ . To make 8 taco size mini burritos it cost me $1.00 for the sweet potato w/ about 8 more the same size if I had more Tortillas so I will freeze the mix for a later meal for me :O)

Verdict on the Recipe: LOVED IT!!!! Will be making this again soon
