Hi guys! Welcome back! I have a special Sweet Potato Casserole recipe for you, a rarity on my website, an American Holiday recipe.
My dear friend Melissa and I met when her and my daughter got close in preschool and have now been best friends for 10 years or so. Since our families are close sometimes we celebrate Christmas and Thanksgiving together.
Even though I am very excited to see them, I also get excited to eat Melissa’s Sweet Potato Casserole, heaven on earth.
The first time I tasted this recipe was the first Christmas we ever had together. The moment I tried this delicious dish I had to know the recipe!
So here it is for you!
