sweet (potato) news

This week has been packed with highs and lows, and there are a couple of highs that I’m so excited to share with you.

High #1 – The Flyers beat the Penguins on Wednesday in OVERTIME! What’s that? You don’t care? Okay, moving on.

High #2 – My Maple Sweet Potato Pecan Burgers won the grand prize in the No More Mallows Blogger Recipe Contest!

I’m so grateful for this win, not only for the prize but because the panel of judges actually tasted each recipe rather than simply reading a list of ingredients and assuming it would taste good. Someone made the burger and several someones ate it up and gave it a thumbs up, and for that I am shocked, thrilled and so very thankful. I don’t really consider myself someone who creates recipes. I think in total I’ve created fewer than 10 recipes all on my own, and so this win feels especially sweet. Sweet like sweet potatoes.

Sweet like Sebastian snuggles.

Sweet like Kentucky’s win over Kansas. (Did you think I wasn’t going to mention that at some point?)

Sweet like Harrison as he helps me write this post.

Sweet like Court Kitty before he gnaws on your face.
