Retro Sides – Sweet Potato Puff


When I first started blogging way back in 2009, I posted some recipes termed “Retro Sides.”  I think some of these recipes are worth a repost because we’re never too good for these comfort foods at Christmas!!  And not only that you can fool the family into getting the nutritious benefits from a sweet potato which is packed with Vitamin A, as well as Vitamin C, and other great minerals!
