Would you believe I used to loathe sweet potatoes? Crazy right?
I wouldn’t get near them as a kid and ran screaming at the mere sight of them as an adult. Then I started blogging. I made a point to try and re-try all the foods I despised and wound up adoring most of them! Beets, brussels sprouts, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes all made the cut once I found my favorite way to enjoy them. In fact, finding the right dish was key!
Pumpkin for instance, I’ve found I prefer in savory dishes mostly but will straight up devour them in muffin form as long as a hefty dose of cinnamon is present. Just dear god don’t offer me a slice of pumpkin pie, I’ll hide under the table with the dog. Beets? I love them best in salads, on pizza, and smoothies.
But sweet potatoes, those I love every which way!
Well, maybe not smothered in marshmallows and brown sugar (I think I’d prefer a cookie!) but any other way I could possibly eat them, I’m so game.
I wound up loving savory sweet potatoes the absolute most, putting them in to pretty heavy rotation when Paul was off on a deployment or whenever I was doing the whole solo dinner thing. It kind of became a running joke on Instagram because I made so many.
Seriously it was borderline crazy how often I was making them. I’m surprised I didn’t turn orange!…
