Sweet potatoes are not just a Fall or Winter Holiday treat. Sweet potatoes taste great in so many ways, as an appetizer, side dish, main dish or even dessert. This is one of the best cheesecake recipes I have ever tried, rich, creamy and not too sweet. My family loved the different spin on cheesecake and dessert!
