Life Changing Sweet Potato Casserole

What would the fall or Thanksgiving be without sweet potato casserole? My sister-in-law gave me this recipe and now I make it ever year for my family. My sister commented it was her favorite thing on her dinner plate this Thanksgiving! Sweet potatoes are under used in my book and I hope to cook with them more this year. I’ll make it one of my New Years Resolutions for 2015. Right along side cutting back on Facebook stalking, eating chocolate, and consuming too much caffeine. I’ll give you and update on how these resolutions pan out next December. This casserole is easy to put together, an absolute classic for Thanksgiving, and the perfect sweet, crunchy, and colorful side dish for any cozy fall meal.

I love Thanksgiving because there are always little hands to help! This is my adorable niece Norah. She wants to  be a nurse and cattle rancher when she grows up and have a nanny to help with raising her five kids!

My little helper! To cook sweet potatoes poke holes in the potatoes and cook sat 400 for about 50 minutes.

    My job was to make these for thanksgiving this year. I tried to be sensible and cut back on the sugar and brown sugar. Not a good idea. If you’re gonna make these go all out.
