Thanksgiving Side Dish

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Thanksgiving is just around the corner… Personally I love sticking with traditions, especially when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. One of my favorite side dishes is Mashed Sweet Potato Brûlée. Here is a recipe that I hope you enjoy and will help to make your Thanksgiving more memorable. Because, even the New York Times says you have to have “something orange” as a part of the perfect Thanksgiving Dinner…
