    I ve always thought that sweet potato dishes served over the holidays were more similar to desserts than main course veggies and this is definitely in that category! But in a good way! Love sweet potatoes and love Sees. They have a really good pumpkin sucker out right now. Wow, that sounds delicious! I love that you can legitimately justify candy as part of a meal. Sweet potato casseroles and such, are my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. Yes, because I feel like I m eating dessert before we even get to dessert! ??


    They look like the ultimate candied sweet potatoes I think I might have to get some See s! Wow, but could I be trusted with all those twisty bundles and would they really ever make it into the pan?
