Thanksgiving Ultimate Candied Sweet Potatoes

Thanksgiving is upon us but that doesn’t really matter because this is a dish that the entire family can enjoy all year long. It’s a Thanksgiving Ultimate Candied Sweet Potato dish that meets to of my cooking requirements.  First, wholesome ingredients and second, it’s so easy I don’t even break a sweat!

This recipe has a third added benefit and that is that the house smells so good! You know when you just walk through that door and the smell of cinnamon and sugar just feels the air? Maybe there is some pre Christmas tunage playing…yes you heard me right…because I just do think there is much more that can bring joy to the heart than that of a nummy meal cooking and it was SIMPLE and the aroma feels the air and that meals brings your family together. How powerful and the best part dinner cleanup is going to be easy. Much joy and love to you and yours!
