Feasting with the family is high on my list of favorite things to do, so when Thanksgiving comes around, I get extremely giddy about some of my mom and a couple other family members’ recipes. Some of us know what to expect – a big and (hopefully) juicy turkey, greens, cranberry sauce and the whole nine. But isn’t it pretty impressive when we see something common, tweaked into a different yet appealing modified version? For example, we know about the sweet yams aka potatoes that are made and served, but because there are so many endless options – it shouldn’t become too mundane. I felt the need to explore some recipes for a change up in our normal sweet potato meals and provide you guys with 5 easy and delectable dishes for the family.

Browned Butted Sweet Potato Stacks

Can you say ‘best of both worlds?’ With brussels sprouts becoming the on-trend vegetable that has been tweaked a gazillion times, why not throw in some sweetness to the mix. Here is the full recipe here.
