In Thailand, for instance, you will find many street vendors dishing up the tourist …read more

Loaded Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes – A Savory Delete of the Sometimes Too Sweet

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) They say your greatest strength is also your biggest weakness, which certainly is true when it comes to sweet potatoes. The starchy sweetness that makes this tuber such a popular holiday side dish, is also its fatal flaw, since, for me at least, it quickly leads to palate fatigue. After a few bites of mashed sweet potatoes, or sweet potato casserole, I’m pretty much over the experience, and I’m reaching for the cranberry sauce to reset my tongue, but here we’ve mixed in a few ingredients specifically selected to cut that sweetness, and push this much closer to the …read more
