Panda, Not Pander

Despite chefs and other facts to the contrary, the perception that "dad can't cook" continues as a constant and annoying theme in public discourse. Now it would be different if we admitted that few people take the time or trouble to cook well, but why should any father's attempts anywhere but at the bar-b seem more ludicrous than most moms and remind people of a panda in the kitchen?

Certainly that doesn't have to be the case. It often is, but it doesn't have to be. To that goal here's a shoutout to the folks at DadLabs [Earlier: Qs&As with DoDads - DadLabs] for PopSizzle (and Chef Hall), their attempt to give new dads (all dads) a tiny bit more knowledge and status, in this case by learning to make sweet potatoes for their sweet potatoes.
