Purple Sweet Potato--Soup with Spicy Chile Oil | cookingontheweekends.com

 This soup is really this color.  It’s this purple, this bright, and this beautiful.

Have you ever had a healthy cookie?  Not always so good, right? Okay, perhaps it can be good if you’re not comparing it to a “regular” cookie.

When we’re talking about recipes, let’s be honest, the word “pumpkin” doesn’t really sound as delicious without the word “spiced” before or after it.
