Oh my goodness. So, you may already know that I LOVE sweet potatoes. I normally don’t do too many savory sweet potato side dishes or entrees. Although, I have had a few. BUT THIS ONE. O M G! Fit Foodie Finds, you killed it with this side dish! It is so so so so so good! I am not really a fan of red onions but DANG, it worked out SO well. This is so good, I cannot wait to share it with my family on Christmas Eve!

Who hears likes a “mulled wine” or a spiced red wine BUT doesn’t like the work? ME!! There is a winery in a small town here in Wisconsin, that has an AMAZING red spiced wine!

Cranberry Champagne Sparklers by Swerve Sweet

This recipe had me at sparklers. What girl doesn’t love sparkles?? I love champagne but I am always looking for different ways to drink it for special occasions. This is so easy and so delicious! The cranberry makes it a great holiday party drink! And if you want to make it nonalcoholic, just have the cranberry juice and sparkling white grape juice!
