The BEST Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe!!

This Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe is one of my family's favorites for Thanksgiving! It's a GREAT dish to make for Thanksgiving or your Euchre Party. This sweet potato recipe is fluffy sweet potatoes with a crunchy pecan topping. To me it's more like dessert, which is why my husband LOVES it!! So if you have family members who are not big vegetable fans, this is the recipe for you!

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole
4 cups sweet potato, cubed 
(about 4 large sweet potatoes)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Put sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Cook over medium high heat until tender; drain and mash.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, white sugar, eggs, salt, butter, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish.

3. In medium bowl, mix the brown sugar and flour. Cut in the butter until the mixture is coarse. Stir in the pecans. Sprinkle the mixture over the sweet potato mixture.

4. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly brown.

ENJOY!!

Wordless Wednesday - Gold Finches

Gold Finch
Gold Finch











Another (not so) Wordless Wednesday ... I love to watch the birds at our bird feeder! In the summer the Gold Finches transform from their muted winter color to their vibrant yellow color. Since it's hard to see the detail of the bird from my actual photo, I've included a close up ... magnificent!!

Wordless Wednesday - Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day!!

Another (not so) Wordless Wednesday ... Since Mother's Day is coming up this Sunday (for all you kiddos who might not have remembered LoL) I just had to acknowledge those women who do the "world's toughest job!!" My daughter sent me this Mother's Day video and it is SOOOO true!!

I also have to acknowledge those women who find this to be a difficult day, as I once was one of you. There is a special place in my heart for those women who struggle on this day, for whatever the reason ... those women who are not Moms but would like to be, those women who have lost children, those who have lost their Mom or those who struggle with the Mom-Child relationship.
