More About This Recipe

  • Can you believe Thanksgiving is in like 20 minutes? Have you even begun to prepare your stomach for the great pork-out-palooza? I think we need to take some baby steps here, to make sure we don't overdo it. This is what I propose: Each day we eat a few bites more than the previous day. You know, building up our stamina so that when it's time to gormandize like nobody's beezneez, we'll be ready to rock it. I can't tell if you're nodding your head, shaking it, or if that's a huge fist coming right at my face. Before you slug me, let's talk about these here Maple-Orange Mashed Sweet Potatoes! Super creamy, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, zingy with fresh citrus, and rich with maple flavor. Yeah look who's all about the baby steps now, mmmmm hmmmmm. Thanksgiving needs to land in my face like right now.
