Recently, I've developed a love for sweet potatoes. I would gladly eat one every day if I could, and am already planning recipes to make when I'm in the comfort of my own kitchen this summer. I can't be the only one obsessed with this sweet, nutrient-packed vegetable. Here are 12 sweet potato recipes that will help you fall even more in love with this veggie.
