Paleo Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Yesterday was one of the most exciting days in my personal “wedding planning” experience. The Mr & I had our engagement session featured on Style Me Pretty! Getting featured usually is exciting, but since I’m a wedding planner, it’s more part of my job. So this was extra special because for the first time it wasn’t a client, it was ME! Make sure to check it out HERE!

Paleo Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Baked & mashed sounds a little confusing, but my best friend taught me how to cook sweet potatoes this way. I used to make mashed sweet potatoes by peeling, cubing, boiling then mashing them, but she did something different: she baked them first. Apparently when you cook them in their skin it holds in the sweetness and keeps it super gooey & caramelized. I’m not even sure if you can consider this a dinner side because it’s more like dessert!
