sweet potato casseroleMy idea of heaven involves a lot of kittens and an endless supply of sweet potato casserole topped with warm, gooey, delicious marshmallows. All vegetables should be covered in sugar puff balls; life would be so much better, don't you agree? So this Thanksgiving, if you haven't tried a recipe like this before, I highly recommend forgoing the standard mashed potatoes and instead baking up a batch of this crowd-pleaser. Marshmallow sweet potato casserole is so good it will make your guests wonder if they've died and gone to the happy hunting ground. Kittens not included.
