5 Ways to Make Sweet Potatoes That Aren’t Fries

YOU GUYS.  I adopted a rescue pug yesterday and guess what her name is? SWEET POTATO! 

I honestly wasn’t even looking for a dog, I already have two pugs and between blog, studio, children and adult things, my life is pretty packed….but then I met Miss Sweet Potato and that all changed. 

You see, my sister called me up last week and told me that she found a rescue pug and she wanted to go visit her at the shelter to see if adopting her would work for her and her cats.  Being that I’m kind of a pug person, I jumped at the chance to go check out this little tater tot.  

As soon as she came galloping out to the visiting area, I knew she needed to be apart of my family.  I literally told my sister that if she decided not to adopt her, I WOULD.  Turns out, Miss Sweet Potato had a little too much energy for my sister’s skittish kittens.  So, VERY LONG STORY SHORT (and believe me, it’s long), I found out yesterday that Princess Tater Tot was mine for the taking. 



I literally could not have been more excited to welcome this little potato into my family.  She, apparently, was ready to go with me as well as she jumped right in my car, directly into the carseat and gave me a look sayin’ LET’S GO! 

So as you might guess I spent most of yesterday snuggling with my Sweet Potato…



…and helping her get acclimated to the other two CRAZY pugs in the house.

Anyway, to celebrate Miss Sweet Potato’s arrival, I decided to share a few of my favorite….you guessed it, SWEET POTATO recipes. 

Is it weird that my dog’s name is Sweet Potato and I eat sweet potatoes on the daily? Is it a cool tribute or is it creepy bordering on disturbing? I can’t decide. 

Regardless, here are five ways to make sweet potatoes that AREN’T fries!
