It occurred to me this Thanksgiving that everyone went to such lengths to try new and exotic recipes that nothing tasted like it should. The sweet potatoes with brown sugar and pecans did not tast like sweet potatoes. The yellow squash which I normally love tasted more like sour cream and buttered crackers that the actual squash. And the turnips did not taste like turnips, etc.
I would rather cook it, put a little butter on it and serve it so everything would taste the way it is supposed to.
