Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes
These Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes are an excellent side dish – sweet, savoury, and spicy they are a delicious accompaniment to your favourite protein.

So, I bought one large potato and went on pinterest to check how to perfectly bake it. I found an article with 5 tips for baking the perfect sweet potato from Healing Tomato. I followed some of the tips, adjusted the baking temperature to my [...]
