Hey, friends! Welcome back to another delicious edition of Sunday Supper! Each week I use this little post as a way to share about the goings-on in my world and to share a little inspiration for your week ahead! Thanks for coming back to join me!
It was a very welcomed, quiet week around our house. The older I get, the more I find comfort in the mundane.
Things are still progressing on the Chinaberry House. We’re hoping to start insulation this week and are anxiously awaiting our brick! Hello, brick?? Are you out there? 😂
With the big day less than two weeks away, I decided to switch Sunday Supper up a bit these next few weeks to offer up a little extra Thanksgiving inspiration as you’re planning out your menu.
This week, it’s all about sweet potatoes! It’s just not Thanksgiving without them! So, I’ve gathered up a host of my favorite recipes from Southern Bite for the these tantalizing tubers and added in a sweet potato recipe that got my attention during a recent Facebook scroll.
For me, the traditional sweet potato casserole is a must, so I'm sharing my mom's recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Praline Topping. It's the quintessential recipe.
If you're looking for something a little different, perhaps this Sweet Potato Cobbler is the ticket. It's the crumble topping that makes this dish special.
If you're wanting to add sweet potatoes to the dessert table, you need to try this Sweet Potato Cake with Marshmallow Buttercream. It's a moist, dense cake, much like carrot cake, that's topped with a decadent fluffy buttercream made with marshmallow creme!
And we can't talk about sweet potatoes and Thanksgiving dessert without a classic Sweet Potato Pie recipe! This one just happens to be my favorite. Brenda, one of my readers, left this comment on the recipe: "And I must say this is the best sweet potato pie I have ever had!!" Well, thanks!
My Candied Sweet Potatoes with Pecans is usually the most popular sweet potato recipe on the blog around this time of year. It's easy and crazy delicious! Again, it's all about that crunchy topping!
Heather's great-grandmother, Big Mama, had her own spin on the classic sweet potato casserole - she just called it a pudding. Her original version didn't include the marshmallows, but I just love toasted marshmallow, so I added them here. Shh... don't tell.
If you're searching for something really different or maybe for a smaller group, these Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes give you all the flavor of the classic casserole, but in fun baked potato form.
Candied Roasted Sweet Potatoes
And check out these sweet potatoes bathing in bubbling butter? (I'm all for alliteration! 😂) These Candied Roasted Sweet Potatoes from Kathleen over at Grits and Gouda sure look amazing, right?! She even mentions that she often tops them with toasted marshmallows! This is me: 🤤
If you think these aren’t too sweet, I’ll make thenm for Thanksgiving. I’m having my mom for dinner.
