easy weeknight meal: sweet potatoes with cheesy pistachio dust (vegan, gluten free)

  As a food blogger, it can be tempting for me to post oodles of complicated, fancy recipes that have a big wow factor. Because those are the things that get a lot of splash and attention. But, that’s not reality. As a mom of four and business owner two times over, I don’t have time most days for complicated and fancy. I’m guessing you don’t either.

Fortunately, they are much easier to whip up than they are to say (LOL) with just seven ingredients. Since the name is kinds of a mouthful, I decided to shorten it to “Bing-Go Bites” for the bing cherries and goji berries. So much easier – and fun! – to say.
