It got into the 20’s here last night even though it was 70 degrees just 3 days ago, so that’s gotten me craving root veggies.

Be Different and Drink Sweet Potato Spice Frozen Lattes

Sweet Potato Spice Frozen Latte

One of the recipes I get asked for the most is a simple version of a pumpkin spice frozen coffee. It seems to have a cult following.

Roasted root veggies are my latest obsession. Well, one of my obsessions, but at least my craziness keeps me occupied. Things like this tend to happen when you get more than one turnip that’s as big as your head! (Thanks winter csa for making me more turnip friendly!) You can roast veggies in the slow […]
