I love sweet potatoes and don’t know many people that don’t. However, many sweet potato recipes are laden with butter and sugar…which my taste buds LOVE, but my body doesn’t. If you want a delicious change this upcoming holiday try my Orange Rosemary Sweet Potatoes. They are sooooo good and 3 year old approved!

    Wow! These sweet potatoes look soooo yummy. I don’t like the traditional sweet potato casserole at Thanksgiving. Much prefer something like this. I will definitely put the recipe in my “to try” file. Thanks for sharing.

      The flavors really do compliment each other well. A little bit of tart and sweet.
