Sweet Potatoes Departure

I haven’t cooked much with sweet potatoes, but when I have it has been with typical fall “apple pie” type spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc…). This was an interesting departure.

    Sounds like an interesting twist, but I think I would prefer to good old “apple pie” ones. 😀 I am not a big fan of really spicy food. Most times it is too hot for me. I like to taste my food and not the hot. Have a wonderful Christmas day!
