Every time that I make sweet potatoes I think that I should make them more often. Perhaps it’s because they are so sweet I think of them more in the dessert category than something that I would eat during the main course. I find them very confusing that way.
The last time that I made this recipe my kids asked if it was Thanksgiving. (They knew it wasn’t.) It’s a recipe that really feels like a warm hug.
I don’t know if I should mention this yet – we have plenty of time, no need to start cleaning or anything like that – but this recipe is something that you can make on Passover. I’ve always thought of Passover as the Jewish Thanksgiving. I will definitely be making this recipe for Passover this year!
