One of the best part of fall are all the delicious foods. One of my favorite foods is sweet potatoes. I love finding new ways to cook them up.
There are so many delicious variations, and they are all so delicious and simple to throw together. One of my favorite variations is the sweet potatoes with marshmallows and all the brown sugar on them.
Although it’s not the most healthy (I could honestly eat it as a dessert) I still consider it a side dish, since it is a root vegetable.
We have put together a list and wide variety of our favorite sweet potato recipes, that are simple and delicious. If you are a sweet potato lover, you will want to try all 25 variations.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes:

what is the difference between a yam and a sweet potato?
This is a commonly asked question. People often don’t know which ones to use when it comes to baking. I myself, had no idea what the difference was. I did a little research and found out that you most likely have never had a yam.
Yams and sweet potatoes are both a tuberous root vegetable, however Yams are grown in parts of Asia and Africa.
The deeper copper colored sweet potatoes are often referred to as yams because they have the soft outside and sweeter skin, like a true yam.
Sweet potatoes, with a lighter skin and inside, have a harder skin. This is how they differentiate the two at grocery stores. Both the orange and yellow sweet potatoes, are actually sweet potatoes, although label differently at the store.
Mind blown. I know.
Both the “yam” (more orange looking sweet potatoes) and the golden sweet potatoes would work for this recipe.
