Disclosure: I received Crisp kitchen tools for review. All opinions expressed are completely my own. I am forever and always committed to sharing quality recipes and products with you.
I’ve been agonizing lately over what to make for Thanksgiving this year. New stuff? Classics? Do we really need three pies AND a bread pudding for dessert? The answer to that last question is clearly YES! More desserts! Obviously. Get your head in the game, people!
My mom and I sat down earlier in the week and sketched out the menu, so I’m starting to feel less spacey about the whole thing. She’s doing the turkey this year (phew!) and I’ve basically got most of the sides and all but one of the desserts. I’m down with this plan.
BUT even with a plan in place, I can’t seem to leave well enough alone. So I’m over here just messing around with sweet potato recipes. No big deal.
I took my families sweet potato casserole recipe and made it miniature. Because we all know that miniature food tastes better. It’s so cute and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. These gratins may be small, but they are big on taste with lots of fresh herbs, orange zest and of course butter and brown sugar. It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without butter and brown sugar!
Make sure to pick up sweet potatoes that are on the skinnier side, so you can easily fit them in your muffin tin.

I’m totally crushing on this new line of kitchen gadgets and utensils. I’m absolutely in love with the bold look of their products. But the thing I dig most is that so many of their tools are multi-purpose. Which comes in handy when you are short on kitchen space (or short of funds – that’s real talk for you). For example, their Zester tool has a garnish blade, scoring blade, fold-out grating plane and a zester all in one neat little package. Very cool.
I put the Straight Paring Knife to work and used it to thinly slice ALL the sweet potatoes for this recipe. That’s a task I would usually reserve for my big chefs knife, but I must say the Straight Paring Knife made quick work of the job. And it comes with a tight fitting cover (throw it in your backpack for a picnic and don’t worry about dulling the blade or the knife stabbing you while you are hiking around – more real talk) with a built in sharpener. Love that.
Oh and their entire line is dishwasher safe. You can’t go wrong there.
