Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Savory Apple Bacon Sweet Potatoes

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away!  Surely I’m not the only one who has started thinking about what I’m going to take to our family get-togethers.  I’ve mentioned before how much I love sweet potatoes.  Don’t get me wrong – I love the sweet, buttery, brown sugary, pecan topped sweet […]
