Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. I am not Native American, but I also found the “Pilgrims & Indians” play at the beginning jarring, embarrassing and just sadly ignorant. The recipe is awesome. Sweet potatoes are awesome. Making stuff with your kids is awesome. Cooking with your kids on Thanksgiving is awesome. Reinforcing hurtful lies about “friendly” Pilgrims and Indians — even when you are just playing dress up– is just really depressing. WayofthePeacefulTlingit gave you a very honest, vulnerable and compassionate response with a very helpful suggestion on how to fix the error – re-edit the video with a different intro. Fall leaves, Turkey dress up, dancing cranberries, whatever. Just please . . . heed her advice? My respect for you would skyrocket if you could make that effort.

  3. 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 🙂

  4. Hi Catherine~

    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..

  6. 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.

  7. Thanks I am really excited to make these! I’ve wanted to find a recipe like this for a long time.

  8. I would love to have the recipe written and not have to watch the video over and over. Looks great though!

  9. Thank you so much! I am wanting to make these for thanksgiving. Now I have time to go through a test run.

  10. We absolutely love the phtoos Morgan! Yall did a fantastic job and it is going to be so hard to decide which ones to have printed and which ones to put in the books.

  11. Would it be possible to sub in a different type of flour instead ? Would coconut or almond work ?

  12. Just for you guys. I should have posted it on Thursday. Big loser me!!

    Sweet Potato Biscuits

    2 Cup AP Flour
    2 Tsp Baking Powder
    1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
    1 Tsp Salt
    1/4 Cup Butter, chilled and cubed
    1 Cup Sweet Potatoes, cooked & mashed
    1/3 Cup Milk
    2 Tbsp Honey
    Cooking Spray

    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
    2. Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine.
    3. Add butter and pulse till it resembles coarse meal.
    4. Add sweet potatoes, milk and honey and pulse till dough comes together.
    5. Place dough onto parchment paper and knead 5 times together and shape into a flat disk.
    6. Place another parchment paper on top and roll out 3/4-1/2 inch thick and cut into biscuits.
    7. Place biscuits on a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
    8. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
    9. Cool and serve.

  13. I’m hoping to make this for Thanksgiving! Please post the written recipe or the amount of milk soon. Thanks.

  14. Whole Wheat Flour is little too dense and will not allow the biscuits to be airy and light, I would go with white whole wheat and test it out or just use plain AP. You can definitely use Agave too 🙂
