For this super-simple side, thick chunks of sweet potato are roasted and then dusted with a snowy layer of nutty Parmesan that turns irresistibly crisp around the edges after a few minutes under the broiler.

Dorie Greenspan’s Favorite Baking Tool — Shopping

Dorie Greenspan bakes in three different kitchens (in New York, Paris, and Connecticut). She has a stand mixer in each, but the five-quart KitchenAid stand mixer in her New York kitchen has a special place in her heart. Purchased almost 40 years ago, it was an incredible splurge at the time, Dorie says. At a few hundred bucks, it's still a major expense for many of us these days, too. If you can swing it, though, Dorie calls it a very wise investment.
