  • Thanksgiving in May: Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole

    This last side-dish from our Thanksgiving in May roundup comes from Ellie Krieger, who often features lower-fat versions of classic recipes.  Since we had about two gallons of butter in our stuffing, it was nice to pretend that we were having a light meal with the addition of this Sweet Potato and Pecan Casserole.  The […]

What are these tossed in, and, uh… why are we eating them in ice-cream cups? Chris says: Um… they’re “sweet” potatoes? Lisa says: […]
