Every year for Thanksgiving, we do some traditional recipes and a few new creations -- but no matter what side dishes we're making, this one is always somewhere on the table. Probably one of the easiest recipes on any Thanksgiving table, these sweet potatoes are a delicious, sweet, and rightfully well-loved holiday classic.
I hope everyone has an awesome holiday -- I have so much to be thankful for this year, it's hard to even get started! But getting to spend time with our friends and family over the holiday season is -- of course -- on top of the list. And Calvin and Coco are so excited for the turkey leftovers!
