Sorry for the absence! And Sweet Potato Casserole!

November was a colossally busy month!

I'll try to get back to posting recipes ASAP, especially with xmas holidays coming around soon. Here is what I made for the sweet potato dish for thanksgiving this year.

Take 3-4 lbs sweet potatoes (probably 3-4 big sweet potatoes, or 5-6 smaller ones). Peel and scrub thoroughly, then chop into large chunks (2-3" cubes or so). Boil until a fork indicates the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Now in batches, blend the sweet potatoes with a little brown sugar (to taste, maybe 1/4-1/2 C for the whole 3-4 pounds). Season with cinnamon, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice. Add butter or margerine if you prefer. Either serve warm, after reheating in the oven (30 mins at 350 should do it) or spread into casserole dish and top with marshmallow halves and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
