Friday Favorites: Thanksgiving Recipes

How many Thanksgiving events have you been invited to this year? Is one of them an office party? My personal favorite…friendsgiving? The age old question is, what should I bring? I have said it before and I will say it again, I am so thankful for Pinterest! There are some really great recipes out there to be tried. Need something different or special for your calendar full of turkey days? Here are a few I have been considering…

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Fall Harvest Salad w/ Pumpkin Maple Vinaigrette

Sweet Potato Casserole w/ Marshmallow and Pecan Streusel

Enjoy the time in the kitchen. Grab a bottle of wine and surround yourself with good friends and the cooking won’t seem so large a task. London post coming on Monday! Until next post…xoxo Becca

Friday Favorites: Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Recipe and Photos from Plated.

Earlier this year I shared our experience with Plated. (a meal subscription service). Ever so often we would get a vegetarian meal and they were usually as delicious as the others. This was one of my favorite, but the hubs wasn’t a huge fan. Since he didn’t enjoy this dish I’ve only stolen a portion of the recipe…the roasted sweet potatoes! The recipe is below and super simple to make.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

1 lb sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
pepper to taste
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp chipotle powder

Preheat oven to 425°F. Wash and cut sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch dice. In a bowl, toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, Kosher salt, pepper to taste, garlic powder, dried oregano, and as much chipotle powder as desired. Arrange in a single layer on baking sheet, transfer to oven, and roast until tender, about 20 minutes.


Until next post…xoxo Becca
