Recipe Sunday: All Things Sweet Potato

Mrs. Hilda is so amazing and gave me a box of sweet potatoes.  Her husband (Mr. Donald) loves my sweet potato pies so this weekend I got a head start on some holiday baking.  As I was cooking the sweet potatoes I notice that 1. these things are huge and 2. there are a ton in this one box.  So it got me to thinking what else can I try out over the next few weeks?
