RECIPE BACKSTORY
never liked sweet potatoes when I was a kid. They were the gross orange stuff that no one wanted at holiday gatherings. Then I discovered that sweet potatoes are really nutritious and all dishes with marshmallows are CRIMES against humanity... I came up with this dish for a Thanksgiving in May dinner. It was a hit!
