Sweet Potato Casserole & Other Thanksgiving Recipes

My grandmother always had the BEST Thanksgiving dinners. I had been drooling just thinking about her sweet potato casserole when I looked in a recipe box she left me when she passed, and there it was! Hallelujah!

Since it’s the season of Giving and whatnot, I am sharing it with all of you along with links to some other great recipes I make each year. Enjoy!
