Sweet Potato Mash

October 22, 2012

I know sweet potatoes are good for you yet I have always hated them. However, I have been eating mash sweet potatoes for the last few weeks. I tried them one day while out to lunch and decided mash is the way to go for me. I definitely enjoyed them enough to serve them up to the other haters at Casa Ladd. The winner? This yummy recipe from skinnytaste.
