I have a list of recipes that I am dying to make. As someone who loves to cook, I am always adding to this list. The list is now four pages long- what can I say? I have a lot of different ideas and am always looking to try something different.

What I love about sweet potatoes is that they are very versatile. You can make them sweet or savory. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, appetizer or snack. Sweet potatoes are loaded with fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C making them a nutritious food option.

I loaded these sweet potatoes up with granola, nuts and apples for maximum flavor. They would be good for breakfast or dessert. I will be making hasselback everything now since I learned that they are so easy but look so pretty!
