Hi everyone!

Don’t forget to enter the Sunbeam Heating Pad Giveaway! The giveaway form is now working.

It’s officially three weeks until Thanksgiving and I’m in holiday planning mode.  If you’re a long-time reader, you may remember I host an epic Thanksgiving at my house.  Most of the Hubs and my family converge on our house for Thanksgiving in the mountains.  It’s something I look forward to every year.   We go a little overboard on EVERYTHING… but that’s how we roll.

The hubs cooks two turkeys and I cook a HUGE assortment of sides.  It involves MANY trips to the store, lots of planning and lots of cooking.  Since I know how much work is involved in Thanksgiving, I’m trying to help you out this year with some fresh ideas for your menu.  I’ll be sharing some of them in the coming weeks, plus putting together a great resource for all the holiday friendly recipes on Running in a Skirt.

Are you hosting this year?  Make sure to check out my guide to hosting Thanksgiving!

So without further ado, let’s start with these Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes recipe.  They are like my basic sweet potato bites, but kicked up a notch for the holiday with maple AND cinnamon.


If you’ve decided to cook a healthier version of Thanksgiving at home these are a great options!  They are cooked in coconut oil and sweetened without any sugar or butter.

If you’re looking for the classic sweet potato casserole though, try this one. 


In all seriousness, what is Thanksgiving without a sweet potato?  These really are a great option.  If you are feeding a smaller group, these are also really easy to throw together and serve on the fly.  Yet, with the extra seasoning they feel festive.


You could also mix these together with other roasted vegetables, to put together a healthy and simple side dish for Thanksgiving.

Anyway you serve it, it’s bound to be a crowd hit and no one will know how little time you actually spent on it.

    Ooooh I haven’t made my Thanksgiving menu yet – these look like they should be on it. As a Canadian, I am partial to all things maple 😉
    These sound so good!
    Somehow it doesn’t surprise me seeing you getting excited about the holidays and going overboard – I love it!

    Sweet potatoes are so delicious and the colour makes them a joy to eat. I’ve never tried roasting them with maple syrup before. Doesn’t it make them too sweet?

    • JulieWunder November 6, 2016 at 4:54 pm - Reply

      It’s not a lot of syrup, so I thought it complimented it! Great for an extra umpf! I also have a simply roasted recipe without the syrup too. Search Roasted Sweet Potatoes on my home page.

    I’ve been loving roasted veggies lately, especially sweet potatoes! I usually just do salt and pepper so I’ll have to try this cinnamon maple recipe!

    I love making Sweet potatoes but I’m boring and only bake them plain. I need to try this easy recipe.

    Our Thanksgiving will be small, but I know we would enjoy these delicious potatoes!

    Mmmmm I love roasting sweet potatoes with cinnamon on them then smothering them in almond butter! These looks so good too- almost like candy!

    I wish I was in planning mode–you know how much I love Thanksgiving and fixing Thanksgiving dinner! But we are going to one of Alex’s uncle’s houses for Thanksgiving with his entire family. I’m pretty sad I won’t get to cook!
