Vanilla-Balsamic Sweet Potato Mash #whole30

Part of doing the Whole30 was avoiding vanilla extract since it contains alcohol, but real Vanilla Beans are permitted. I had never used one until the Whole30, but now that I’ve tried them, I’m not sure I can go back to Vanilla Extract! They are a great addition to smoothies, cookies, and to this sweet and […]

Crispy Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries
