It is now Fall. It is time to hide under the heavy sweaters and jeans. Fall brings about the best tasting fruits and vegetables. Sweet potatoes, sweet pumpkins and sweet squash all are just waiting to be made into dessert or a meal!
When it comes to pies, I prefer pumpkin because they aren’t as sweet as sweet potato pie. I would rather eat sweet potatoes baked or used in biscuits or quick bread. I have all kinds of visions floating around about things to make with the new crop of sweet potatoes, pumpkins and sweet squash!
This one is a favorite of mine. It can be made with a combination of butternut squash and sweet potatoes or just sweet potatoes.
