As nice as it is to have a turkey on the table, my favorite Thanksgiving staple is the sweet potato. Growing up, my mama made ‘em the way you did in the 1980’s–sickly sweet and topped with toasted marshmallows. Though I grew up loving and looking forward to the old school take on the stuff, my healthier grown-up sensibilities have since taken over, and I find myself planning my menu’s each year with less sweet recipes for sweet potatoes.
