Recipe: Pork Chops over Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Roasted Cauliflower

As many of you may already know, pork and sweet potatoes make quite the dynamic duo. Though it’s almost spring, and you may think sweet potatoes are more of an autumn flavor, we all know March is never as warm as we want it to be. This hearty dinner is best for one of those chillier nights, when a salad just isn’t going to cut it.
