Thanksgiving Catch Up


Even though Thanksgiving was two weeks ago, I still wanted to post my new sweet potato recipe from REAL SIMPLE. I used hate sweet potatoes because I always had them mashed with colorful marshmallows on them, until we grilled them one summer night and I fell in LOVE for the first time. They are so good for you, and they are yummy with just a bit a salt on them. So as a result of this, I decided to tell both families, the Edmondson's and the Rapier's, that I was making them this year. 

It involves simple ingredients of sweet potatoes, parmesan, pecans, brown sugar, cayenne, thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper. They were easy to make, and take about an hour to bake. At the Edmondson Thanksgiving lunch the dish was demolished, so it was a success!

My sister-in law Lindsey, who is a 1st grade teacher made these turkey cupcakes. They were SO CUTE, so I thought I would share. Her husband, my brother Jon didn't know a box of cake mix makes 24 cupcakes and instead made 12. They were HUGE!! But still darling. 


  1. LOVE sweet potatoes! This sounds excellent. Have you tried roasting them in the oven like oven fries?
