One of my favorite vegetables is the sweet potato. It’s a hearty vegetable that has a natural sweetness that lends itself well in recipes. Now that I’m getting ready to plant my garden, I can’t wait to have fresh out of the garden sweet potatoes.

Something else I love is easy and delicious. I also love one pot meals (slow cooker or crock pot meals).

One of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes is baked with a little butter, but next to that, I love this slow cooker sweet potato and sausage recipe:
