Each day, stop by the Dish for a new drawing and Nate and Salli’s liner notes about the illustrations and the artists. Tell us which you like and why. A dollop of this, a dash of that and some talent add up to interesting ideas in the kitchen. Visit theydrawandcook.com for more info.

Here is a great twist on a traditional side dish that can be found on lots of Christmas dinner tables this year. We know sweet potatoes are a definite must-have, according to our mom, and we hope she’ll let us try this version this year. Sweet potatoes and apples and spice; how nice. We love the smart and cute symbolism that the artist, Colleen Madden, used to illustrate this recipe:  “Grannies” for Granny Smith apples and “Sweety” little girls for sweet potatoes! The other little details like the apples on Granny’s walker and the “snowgranny” are adorable, all making for a memorable holiday with the family.

See more illustrated recipes that are cute and funny and sweet and silly today on They Draw and Cook. And get all sorts of holiday recipes at FoodNetwork.com.
