  • Jan says:

    Such a delicious line-up of Thanksgiving goodness! One problem, I looked at your “Mashed Sweet Potatoes” recipe….. it doesn’t say what to do with the 1/4 cup of half-and-half. I assume you add it to the sweet potatoes after they’ve been mashed??? Please clarify. Thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Thanks, Jan for pointing that out! I accidentally left that out. I’ve added in that the half-and-half gets stirred in with the butter and salt in step number 3.

  • Marian (Sweetopia) says:

    Such amazing ideas!

  • Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective says:
