You've had roasted sweet potatoes before, so you've had them all, right? I used to think the exact same thing until I learned a technique for butter-roasting thick slices of sweet potato until they turned from hard tubers to almost butter themselves.

Popularized by the blog Dessert for Two, this technique for butter-roasted sweet potatoes — dubbed melting sweet potatoes by Christina over at Dessert for Two — roasts the potatoes until they are a dark amber on the outside, creating a layer of deeply caramelized sweet potato that just barely holds the soft, buttery insides together. She serves this with an incredible maple pecan sauce, but we think they are perfection all on their own with a fat pinch of salt to finish them off. This recipe won't let you think of roasted sweet potatoes the same way ever again.

If You Use Sea Salt, You Could Be Eating Plastic — Wellness News

Sea salt is one of the purest ingredients in your kitchen. At least it should be. Made by simply evaporating ocean water, it involves very little processing.

How To Cook Golden, Juicy Chicken Breast on the Stove — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

(Image credit: Joe Lingeman)

There are as many variations on cooking chicken breast as there are cooks, and I'd say that is a very good thing, as it ensures we never grow tired of this dinner staple.

Pan-seared chicken breast, cooked in a little oil with salt and pepper and finished with a generous knob of butter, is the first way I learned to cook chicken and a technique I always go back to. The resulting chicken has a golden-crisp exterior with a still-juicy interior, and is just as welcome served with steamed vegetables as it is atop creamy Alfredo pasta.
