Looking for a recipe to make with your kids for Thanksgiving to get them excited and involved in making something for the family during the holidays? Sweet Potato Biscuits are not only delicious, but a ton of fun to make as a team!
Would you say a 9 cup Cuisinart food processor $120 is better for most of your recipes? The 7 and 8 cup are on sale for $99. Is the extra-large feed tube also a feature that is worth the extra money for the food processor you use and recommend? Do you slices whole fruits and vegetables?

I like the extra large feed tube for when I’m grating a ton of cheese!
My 3Yr old made the crockpot oatmeal with me after dinner. He is staying home tomorrow from school and we are going to make these biscuits. He is going to be so excited. I wish I had a picture of his satisfied grin when he turned on that crockpot tonight.
Do you think I could use coconut oil instead of butter in most of these recipes? I love that stuff. Thanks for the recipes
When I made it, the dough came very sticky. I followed the recipe and I may have put a little too much sweet potato but would this have done that? Also, I didn’t pulse..just blend?? They taste good, but it was so I couldn’t use cookie cutters..
I have to say something, and its probably going to sting a bit, but I hope you understand.
In the video, Catherine is wearing a cheap headdress, as is her daughter. I know its to reference Pilgrims and Indians, but it is not okay. It is not okay. It is wrong.
I am a Native American. It is incredibly disrespectful, hurtful, and ignorant for anyone who is not Native American to wear a headdress. Any kind of headdress. They are sacred to our cultures. They are not just fancy hats. When non-Natives wear them, it does not honor us or our heritage, it insults us. No matter how much respect you mean it to have, it ONLY insults us. Especially when its clearly made from cheap materials, because its obvious you wanted to make a direct Indian reference, with no understanding of what a headdress is. Wearing a headdress to honor Native Americans is like wearing blackface to honor African Americans.
I was greatly disappointed that Catherine had her daughter wearing a headdress. Its a shame that another generation is being taught to trivialize the Indigenous Peoples of our country, and to encourage hurtful stereotypes.
The Thanksgiving most Americans celebrate today is based on a fanciful, happy, barely true story. Trying to celebrate what actually went down around the first thanksgiving would have to include the death of hundreds of Natives (women and children), and no one wants to ruin their family meal with the truth.
Every single day, I and other Native Americans fight for our heritage, language, self-respect, and dignity. We fight the ugly stereotypes that society refuses to let go of. Everyday our culture is stolen and turned into a cheap commodity for public consumption.
I hope you didn’t mean to be disrespectful,and I hope you will cut out the beginning of the video, to show respect for the Native American community.
Thank you for reading this.
I feel terrible that you had this reaction to the video. I hear what you’re saying. There’s no disrespect to yourself or the Native American community intended when we made this. I was just trying to advocate the positive spirit of the holiday and try to get kids involved in the cooking process, especially on such a joyful holiday. Please accept my more sincere apology.
Just for you guys. I should have posted it on Thursday. Big loser me!!
