Sweet Potato Bake

This past week we had dinner with some new friends.  It was a wonderfully fun evening of getting to know new people, watching our little girls have a ton of fun together (Ava has a new friend for sure!) and eating a delicious dinner.  And by dinner, I mean we were served a FEAST!  It was absolutely delicious!  Kristen even made fresh baked BREAD!  Wow!  The entire thing was delicious.  I was especially won over by a sweet potato casserole that she served us.  It was warm, sweet and oh so good.  I just had to share it with you all.  I’m sure you will love it as much as I did.  And if you aren’t won over yet, here’s what Kristen said when she sent me the recipe…

“It is such a comfort food for me- I could eat the whole pan.  Super easy to make and super easy to aid in weight gain!”

Haha!  I laughed at the last part.  I know you are anxiously awaiting the recipe so here it is.  Thanks Kristen for sharing!!

    I confess that I’ve never had sweet potato casserole, although a version of it is usually served at the Thanksgiving dinner table with my family-in-laws. I do, however, always forget that I like sweet potatoes sliced and roasted in the oven. I haven’t had that for years! Thanks, Janell, for the reminder of how good these sweeties can be!
