While everyone else is deeply immersed in everything pumpkin spice, I get sweet potato-obsessed when autumn hits. Not that I don’t enjoy them throughout the year – after all, they’re one of the best carbs to enjoy, and extremely versatile. So, in addition to the remaining reader requests, I thought I’d throw in a couple of my favorite sweet potato recipes to usher in the fall (we’re still waiting here in Sacramento, as it takes until mid-October for the heat to finally go away). And that sexy rice & pilaf one with my other fall favorite: butternut squash! (I love you, too, pumpkin. There’s just too much pumpkin spice overkill out there right now, so I’m pimping out your cousin.)
I have also included another stellar sandwich recipe, as one reader had requested that I start reposting my sammiches. Sticking with the fall theme, I thought the Apple, Kale & Cheddar Melt with Red Onion Marmalade was perfect! I’ll probably bring back a few more sandwiches in the next batch post, too, so stay tuned for that.
Lastly, as you can see, I finally added pictures of each individual recipe for your drooling enjoyment. And so that you have a better idea of what you’re clicking on, as it’s easier to remember a photo than a title. As time goes on, I’ll add photos to the last few batch posts, for easier reference.
That’s it for now. Now, go forth and cook something! Enjoy! 🙂
