I love fall, it’s a reminder to us of so many things. This year I’m especially reminded of our good fortune in having wonderful friends and a loving family. How lucky we are to have both! I took these orange glazed sweet potatoes to our neighbor’s early Thanksgiving Dinner the other day. They have a new baby coming and wanted to still be able to have Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun to have a big dinner all together and see what everyone brought.

I saved this post until now since it’s a little closer to Thanksgiving. This is a really yummy twist on sweet potatoes and I usually don’t even like sweet potatoes if that tells you anything. Most sweet potato recipes are smothered with butter and sugar and all sorts of goodness that really seem to cover up the all deliciousness that a sweet potato has to offer. This recipe really adds to the flavor and makes for a great side dish to compliment any of your favorite autumn meals. I got the recipe from my girlfriend, Lisa and made an adaption.
