Pineapple Sweet Potatoes

Pineapple Sweet Potatoes - I Say Nomato Nightshade Free Food Blog
Pineapple Sweet Potatoes are a Thanksgiving classic at our house. Mashed with brown sugar and baked in the oven, they're satisfying, with a hint of warmer climes.  I have a secret love for vintage recipes. Not just any vintage recipes, but the weird ones that must have been invented by some sort of evil '60s Stepford… Read More

The life of being a food blogger spouse is not easy. People joke about 'Med School Widows', but I'm beginning to wonder if Mr. Nomato isn't a 'Food Blogger Widow' instead! He eats all the ugly food, the cast-offs, the rejects, has to deal with my crazy kitchen experiments and reheated picture foods (which he pretends… Read More
