Sausage & Sweet Potato Hash

Sausage Apple and Sweet Potato Hash

I have a confession, I’m not a food blogger — just a mom who loves to cook. When I started out, my recipes were good, but my pictures were bad. Really bad.

Since then, I’ve learned a little about photography and improved some (I hope), but I’m still just a mom who cooks and sometimes, I get tired of writing elaborate descriptions of recipes, because, really… who reads those anyway?

Rather than attempting to write a fancy description about how delicious, delectable, perfectly balanced, and ______ (insert other over-used food word here) this recipe is, I’ll let its simplicity speak for itself.

Sausage & sweet potato hash isn’t fancy, and I wouldn’t serve it at a dinner party (unless it was a dinner party centered on watching sports), but it is a quick meal option that my children absolutely love and that is super simple to make.
