When In Doubt, Add More Butter

When I host a party or dinner, someone will pull me aside, and ask what the secret is, to the dish or dessert they may have enjoyed. I'm reminded of something a chef told me a long time ago- "When in doubt, just add more butter

Not margarine, not a spread, but pure, unadulterated butter. He was right. Although I try to eat healthy most of the time, every once in a while you have to live a little. When my wife asked me to taste her sweet potatoes below, and give her some advice, I told her, add even more butter. She did, and they came out spectacular. Well, the sugar and cinnamon didn't hurt either.

When in doubt, add more butter. Happy Thanksgiving all.

Thanksgiving

Hey Scott - sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving feast.  I'll have to remember that little nugget of advice!  My family does LOVE butter - I guess too much is never enough.

P.S.  I mentioned you in my blog tonight!!

Scott, Thanksgiving Day is for being thankful, and we can drift a bit from the healthy food for one day.  Those sweet potatoes look WONDERFUL.

Oh yeah...I made stroganoff last night, and by the time all the meat, then the onions, then the mushrooms, were sauteed, a stick of butter was missing. Add a cup of sour cream, and .... ;)
