Happy belated Thanksgiving 🙂 I had a lovely holiday down in Raleigh, NC and everything was delicious – especially the chocolate chess pie! I combined a few recipes to come up with a sweet potato dish that I thought was pretty good.
|Sweet Potatoes (top left), Broccoli Casserole, Dried Cherry Bourbon Stuffing|
4 sweet potatoes
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup sugar
4 tbsp. softened butter
1/3 cup milk
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
… I think that’s it.
Bake, boil or microwave the sweet potatoes until soft. Mash in a bowl, add eggs, milk & butter, combine with potatoes. Add the remaining ingredients, tasting until you think it’s perfect. Spread into 9×13 inch pan.
For the crumble:
3/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
A dash of cinnamon
Mix all together with beaters until combined. Sprinkle over top of sweet potato mixture. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

I apologize for camera phone pictures. During this time period I lost the ability to upload pictures with my old camera BUT Christmas came early for me as Evan and I went to pick out my new one at Best Buy a couple days after Thanksgiving 🙂 I’m so excited about my Canon PowerShort SX130 and hopefully my food pictures will improve.
And help decorate the Christmas tree – isn’t he precious?
No surprise to anyone, we got stuck in killer traffic starting about 100 miles out from DC, and it took an extra hour and a half to get home.
Back to reality!
