After searching the internet far and wide for a sweet potato casserole recipe fit for a first-time-sweet-potato-cook I landed upon this one and I am glad I did! It's easy to follow and makes a a lot! Way more than I needed (not realizing how many members of my family aren't fans of sweet potatoes. Fine, more for me!). Thankfully it makes for good leftovers. I believe I'll be using this recipe again in the future.
This is the sweet potato casserole my family requests that I make every Thanksgiving, and I've been making it for years! I just decided to finally write a review. The only change I make is to put the pecan streusel topping on the entire casserole, rather than putting marshmallows on half. The pecan streusel topping is my family's favorite part!

Since then I have gone from shopping exclusively at the frozen aisle to -after getting married- making all the meals at home from scratch. My husband also loves to cook, although he still needs a lot of direction sometimes (he's from Texas so sometimes the meals he makes are just a bit too spicy for me. <br />The picture is of our little 'baby', a teacup Yorkie. <br /><img src=<a href= alt= />http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png border=0 alt=Made by Bella14ragazza></p>
