Mouthwatering appetizer or a complete meal - you decide.


Most of us often think about loading up our baked potatoes but after you try sweet potatoes you'll rethink that option!


Switch up your meat or seasonings to reinvent this new classic over and over again. Any seasoned meat will work well, or try it with some spinach and cranberries for a little festive treat.
