    Sweet Potato Soul

    Sweet Potato Soul

    Sweet potato sassiness and bubbling brown sugar assail my sense of smell. Vanilla verve and hot caramelized crystals hug me deep in my soul. Ostentatious aroma of orange Ombre confections. SNIFF. Grabs the little girl in me and I'm holding hands with my Nana. I let my eyes close and feel the embrace of my adolescence overtake me. Trips to McDonald's just because I begged too long and too much. Digging through jewelry boxes brim-full with shiny baubles and gilded brilliance. She wears pink, leather bedroom slippers and a floral house robe while we sip morning coffee and eat scrambled eggs. I'm only 5 but it's our ritual. I'm excited because my Nana is making sweet potato pie today.

    Top 3 Cooking Oil Disposal Tips

    Kitchens are going to get busier during the holidays, but this doesn't mean that safety is going to be overlooked. In fact, fire prevention guidelines must be enforced better during the holiday season. Holiday celebrations are expected to involve plenty of cooking, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that the peak day for home cooking fires is Thanksgiving, which is followed by Christmas Day, the day before Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas Eve. In addition, cooking was the leading cause of reported residential fires from 2014 to 2018.
