Duck Leg with Sweet Potato Mash

Super-tender duck meat and smooth sweet potato mash are a great combo for special occasions. The latter’s mild sweetness and the juicy duck cooked with ham and flavored with herbs and lemon zest would be better described as marvelous.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
