Braided Sweet Potato Brioche Rolls

If only life could be better for everyone. 

If only the people who needed help got the help they needed. 

If only those who didn't eat had someone to encourage them. 

If only they had someone there to tell them. Lead them to a better path. Show them the better road. Bring them up the ladder to climb. Hold them tightly in their hands. 

If only, they had people who saw who they really were inside, who knew who they were, who could truly understand them, and tell them it's not okay. 

It's not okay to eat nothing for lunch and then go for a run. 

It's not okay to eat your food and vomit it out again. 

It's not okay to eat a small granola bar and rely on it for the rest of the day. 

It's not. 

It's not okay to think that you're eating fine when you're not. It's not okay. 

Please stop doing it to yourself. 


These sweet potato brioche rolls are soft, light and moist. They're perfect for using up your thanksgiving leftover sweet potatoes! 

I must they bread was kind of dry (heh), probably because I cut a bit of the butter. But either way, it's the perfect vehicle for a little grilled cheese, for dunking into warm, comfy soups, and turning them into baked french toast in a cool, rainy morning. Imagine baked vanilla and cinnamon french toast with sweet potato brioche bread and topped with toasted walnuts and pecans. I want that. Tomorrow.
