Oh Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole! Day 4 of Autumn Foods
And with sweet potatoes coming into season, I was tickled when I happened upon healthier version of the traditional Sweet Potato Casserole. So of course I HAD to make it to try it out, right? And it was wonderful! Fabulous taste, a hint of sweetness but the sweet potato still shone through, and fluffy! This is a keeper for the holidays.
And why do I have the holidays on my mind you might wonder? Even though it was above 80 degrees here in NC (crazy weather!)!!! I was waiting in line at a store to pay for my purchases and there it was .... November's issue of the Food Network magazine. Picking it up and flipping through it just for those few moments, I saw recipe after recipe I wanted to try in my kitchen. And I was just flipping through the first 40 pages of how to cook the perfect turkey, homemade dinner rolls, quick weeknight meals, cranberry relishes! So I brought the magazine home with me. And have had visions of Thanksgiving dinner since!
So I followed Ellie Kreiger' Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole this evening and my home smelled like Autumn! I didn't miss the butter or white sugar at all!
