Friends, I think it’s time I confessed my love for sweet potatoes. If I could I would probably make a sweet potato recipe every single day. I’m not exaggerating. Not only are they fairly inexpensive and packed with nutrients, but they’re also very versatile and a popular ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. And we’ve just entered sweet potato season, so you know I’m in my happy place ;)

Today we’ve lined up all of our favorite Sweet Potato Recipes including baked sweet potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, stuffed sweet potatoes, sweet potato soups, and more!
