3) Remove the sweet potato from the water once it is tender, but still mildly crunchy. Combine sweet potato, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, olive oil and water in a medium sized skillet. Stir and sauté for about 10 minutes on medium-low heat.

    If you plan to be a book heroine, this means that you must eat
    all the time, except when you’re not eating, and then you
    should be thinking about eating. It is an industry norm
    that you offer a hotel room for the comedian at the same time.

    These surgeries are a matter of personal preference, peer pressure from fellow entertainers and the
    need to maintain an unrealistic image that is associated with them.
