Help us settle the age-old Thanksgiving arguments once and for all: #FoodFight.
In the BigOven office, there’s a raging debate happening on marshmallows. Sure, everyone loves a good s’more over a campfire on a warm summer night, but when else do marshmallows really surface in our everyday food consumption? On Thanksgiving, marshmallows come out of hibernation and steal the spotlight. Sweet potatoes, the darlings of the Thanksgiving sides family, are coated in sticky, sugary, marshmallow-y goodness. This side tastes like dessert, to the delight of children (and many adults) everywhere.
One of our team members loves marshmallows but can’t stand them in her sweet potatoes. Her crusade against these puffy pillows ignites each November. There will be no candied sweet potatoes at Meliza’s table, which some of our team considers a true Thanksgiving tragedy.
The debate rages on: the pro-marshmallow camp remains fiercely devoted to our fluffy friends, while the anti-mallow crew searches for the best updated sweet potatoes recipe out there (admittedly, there are many delicious ones here).
