November's here, folks, and the time has finally come to let go of your pumpkin obsession. You knew it was going to happen eventually; it's time to cut the cord and move on to something else...dare we say it, something better?

With Thanksgiving on everyone's mind, sweet potatoes are the obvious replacement for that pumpkin flavor. Potatoes are a little heartier than pumpkins, and it seems like you should feel guilty eating them. But sweet potatoes are packed with good stuff like vitamin A and potassium...

So feel free to stuff your face with these 27 irresistible dishes!

1. These rosemary potato stackers are what dreams are made of.

2. These tots, too, are what dreams are made of. Lots of sweet potato dreams.
