I love Thanksgiving and always look forward to creating new and delicious recipes to mix things up! This year I am having all kinds of fun with the sweet potato. I will be focusing on how to tickle your taste buds using natural sweeteners, unrefined sea salt, and good old fashioned butter. The food industry designs foods combining all three of these foods (sugar, salt and fat) because they know it stimulates a center in your brain called the dopamine center. This center is what makes your eyes roll into the back of your head and elicits a moan... without your consent!
This is my first creation, and I have to say, it turned out to be pretty darn good! Let me know if it hit the stop for you like it did for me!
