Creating recipes isn't a pastime—it's a passion. And a lot of fun.

The rules are few: Use 99% fresh ingredients (or thereabouts); make the dish simple but flavorful; make the dish flavorful but simple; be creative, not silly.

With this blog, I want to share new recipes, along with tips on ingredients and preparation, and, hopefully, show new cooks (and non-cooks) the pleasure in setting the table with a delicious homemade meal. The Briny Lemon is about fresh, simple, flavorful ingredients and easy cooking methods that help you bring the best to your family table. Your comments are welcome!

Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes

When you want an easy, simple side dish loaded with warm, downhome flavor, this little sweet potato recipe may be just what you’re looking for. The key: maple syrup. Stir it into the cooked potatoes along with a bit of butter and mash it all together to sweet and creamy goodness. Mmmmm.

Serves 4-5

  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
Prepared Sweet Potatoes
  1. Place the potatoes in a medium pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer until tender, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Stir in the maple syrup and butter and season with salt and pepper. Mash until creamy and smooth.
