Nanny Ash Cooks Christmas

I love sweet potato, as most little ones seem to, which is why I have made it the star ingredient in these quick and simple recipes. Sweet potato is not only full of vitamins and minerals but it enables you to create a sweet treat without having to make use of refined sugar. Have a delicious Christmas!
