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!!

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!!

NEW Euchre Score Boards for up to 48 Players

Originally I created a Euchre Score Board for up to 20 players. Since posting the Euchre Score Board on EuchreFun, I have had requests from readers who were having Euchre Tournament card parties for more than 20 players and needed printables for a larger group.

I have now created NEW Euchre Score Boards which can be used for up to 48 players and up to 12 games. That's alota Euchre!! LoL These boards can be combined with all the other Euchre printables for your larger Euchre Tournament. For the Euchre Score Boards below, you only have to print the pages needed for the number of players that are playing. The NEW Euchre Score Boards are available below as well as with all the printable items on the Euchre Printables page.

Sharing Some Happiness Saturday - Painting with Friends

Euchre Tournament


Continuing our HAPPY theme this Saturday and joining Angela from Cuddles & Cartoons on her new This Made Me Happy Link Up.

OK time to be honest ... the day they handed out art talents, I was not in line!?! LoL Recently some friends got together to do a Paint Party. I have NEVER painted any kind of artwork in my life, but thought it would be a great time to give it a try. I was amazed that I ended up with such a beautiful picture (shown above)! They do a GREAT job walking you through the process step by step. It was so neat that even though all of us did the same picture, they were all a little different. I admit I was nervous starting out, but enjoyed spending time with friends and was happy with the result. Recently there have been some specials on Groupon on these type of painting parties. If you get a chance, give it a try ... venture out of your comfort zone and you might be pleasantly surprised with the results and bring some happiness into your life!

What made you happy recently?? Leave a comment below and let us know ...
