Oh, Wisconsin – you never cease to disappoint with the tonnages of snow you dump on us every winter! Is anyone else as ready for summer as I am?!

For today’s tastes, sweet potatoes take the spotlight. Enjoy!

One of the simplest complex carbohydrates out there, I have always found sweet potatoes to be a perfect combination of protein, vitamins, carbohydrates and that little tinge of sweet! I used to eat half of a baked sweet potato after every workout (I have since found other things to eat post-sweat), but there are so many different ways to cook this tasty food!

I have wanted to try this recipe for SO LONG – I have all the ingredients, so might as well go for it! It’s always nice to have a “meatless” burger substitute, and sweet potato burgers sound right up my alley!

Everyone who knows me KNOWS I am a huge fan of hummus…any flavor…any brand…with anything to dip it in. Sweet Potato Hummus? Umm, yes please!

Looking for a simple sweet/cheesy snack? These Cheesy Sweet Potato Crisps are an easy treat anyone can make, any time of the year! These Baked Sweet Potato Wedges are another great and simple recipe for that warm, salty taste we all crave!

One of my favorite vegan blogs highlights sweet potatoes in this Smashed Sweet Potato Fritter recipe – it does require more ingredients, but I am telling you… it will totally be worth it! She knows her flavor combinations, and this recipe sounds faaaantastic!

Yum yum yum x infinity = this sweet potato bread recipe. I love sweet breads, and this one looks right up my alley! I love that it’s gluten-free as well! PERFECTO! Let me know what you think of this Coconut Sweet Potato Bread Recipe…

And finally (but certainly not the least-important) is a little dish by Good Ol’ Miss Paula Deen. Regardless of your opinions of her recent attention in the news, you cannot deny that this Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Pecan Crumble recipe would be irresistibly delicious when made. Cheers to you all!
