As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I had the amazing opportunity to share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes on WNEP’s Home and Backyard!  The folks at Home and Backyard tried out a new format — they hosted the entire show right from my house!  I thought it was a fun way to bring the various segments together.

The first recipe I made was my mom’s recipe for Roasted Rosemary Sweet Potatoes – you can catch the episode here. It’s a savory version of one my favorite Thanksgiving menu recipes.  Instead of brown sugar, marshmallows and the like, I top mine with garlic, fresh rosemary and Parmesan cheese!  The flavor is incredible! And, you don’t have to feel so guilty about the extra calories!

If you are looking to try a new side dish this holiday season, these are a great option!

I also made my Pumpkin Pie Squares on this episode.  You can watch the clip here.
