In-Season Recipe Swap: Sweet Potatoes

This week's in-season recipe swap theme is sweet potatoes! :) I can't wait to see your favorite recipes for sweet potatoes (even though I forgot to get sweet potatoes at Costco this week)! :)

Joshua loves it when I make sweet potato pie (using cooked, drained, and mashed sweet potatoes in place of pumpkin puree), and I also love cooked sweet potatoes tossed with butter and brown sugar.

Last week I made Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad, a delicious and very healthy Autumn vegetable salad. I love this medley of potatoes, corn, cucumber, onion, and garlic -- tossed with lime juice (I used lemon -- shhhh!), honey, and cilantro. Totally different from a traditional "potato salad" but so colorful and yummy!!

(For the record, Joshua can't stand cilantro and doesn't care for this salad.) :)

To participate in this week's In-Season Recipe Swap:

Post your on-theme recipe, including your own photo of the food. Link to this post, and then come over here and let us know where to find YOU! Just leave your link in a comment and I will manually add them to this post throughout the day. :) Next week's recipe theme (December 2, 2009) is popcorn!

1. Sweet Potato Streusel Muffins (Laura)
2. Maple Pecan Sweet Potato Muffins (Rachel)


that salad looks wonderful!

We LOVE sweet potatoes at our place; my hubby is allergic to pumpkin - so we replace sweet potatoes for pumpkin in almost all our favorite recipes. I've got a long list of our favorite sweet potato recipes:

Sweet Potato Corn Bread -

Sweet Potato Pie (with molasses crinkle crust) -

Sweet Potato Spice Ice Cream -

Great "Pumpkin" Cookies -

Crockpot Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potatoes --

Sweet Potato Treats -

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Bread -

Sweet Potato Waffles -

Sweet Potato Muffins -

and, of course, sweet potato fries -

Thanks! And, Happy Thanksgiving!
