Yes, I made sweet potatoes into a dessert. Just as carrots can be magically transformed from unexciting root vegetable to scrumptious cake, a little butter, sugar, and lemon juice made the savory sweet potato live up to its name. The story goes like this: my parents came home late from playing hockey and I wanted to cook them sweet potatoes to go with their salads, but before the water had even boiled they were already inhaling their meal. We finished the salads long before the potatoes were ready so I had some half-cooked vegetables and I had to do something. Inspiration struck, and with a wave of my magic wooden spoon I made a warm, sugary dessert in almost no time and even fewer ingredients.
