Properly prepared sweet potato is a very good food...  Too bad I spent so many years eating them with the "mandatory" marshmallow topping and hating them...

pumpkin is excellent with a bit of lime and cinnamon!

I just recommended Sweet Potato as a vegetable to be subjected to the "spaghetti maker" gadget used for Zucchini, on the Zucchini Spaghetti Maker thread.
I was reading the menu of a new restaurant earlier and noted sweet potato noodles in a porcini mushroom broth with Japanese pork. It was the noodles (B that I am!) that called to my soul.

I make roasted sweet potatoes: cut into cubes, add olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Roast until crispy!

It would probably work with fresh onion and garlic instead of the dried spices, but my kids prefer the texture of the spices.

Have you seen all the sweet potato recipes at this site's Recipe Center?
Just click on "Recipe Center" under the Online Support Button on the dark blue menu bar, above.
Type Sweet Potato, when you arrive there.

Oh yeah! Another daily eater of sweet pots.

I have been so fortunate that my market now carries three varieties: The usual orange flesh, as well as a "white" sweet potato and now one that is in-between! Roasted, baked, sauteed in the pan, sliced in a casserole, it's all good!

Confession: Sometimes I eat them twice a day and when I do eat them I consume a few at a time.

I must be one of the last persons left on earth who still likes them sweetened a little (agave) with a few drops of soy sauce. Not exactly haute cuisine, I know, but at least no marshmallows!

Oh, boy, why ruin a good sweet potato with marshmallows! They are divine to me with ghee. Or with nothing!

When we were little kids (in the 1950s/60s) the marshmallows were an attractive feature, and something we looked forward to once a year (i.e., at Thanksgiving dinner); they were by no means part of any and every sweet potato dish otherwise.

I don't equally enjoy all varieties of sweet potatoes.  The dark orange flesh ones that are called jewel or garnet around here seem to be too watery in texture and containing strings.

My favorite are the old fashioned sweet potatoes that have a tan skin and yellow, dense flesh.  They range from only moderately sweet (good variety for fried potatoes or savory dishes) to intensely sweet (dessert-like).  It seems to depend on the time of year here as to which is available.  I like them baked in their skins and eaten with ghee.

I see I need to branch out!  

Does anyone know the difference between sweet potatoes and yams? I'm assuming the beauregard yam is what we most often refer to as the "old fashion classic", but My Organic Market (MOM's) and Whole Foods sells jewel, garnet, and Japanese sweet potato, as well as beauregard sweet potato, which sounds like a mash-up. No pun intended.

I thought there was a difference.

Beauregard is most definitely a sweet potato. In the US allmost anything that is called a yam is actually a sweet potato.
