thanksgiving sweet potatoes

So our family does Thanksgiving and Christmas meals in a sort of potluck style... my brother and sis in law host since they have a great house for our whole family to gather together in.  The usual Thanksgiving protocol is they do the turkey{s} and host, then we all sign up to bring the rest of the goodies... this year I volunteered to change up my usual green bean casserole and unicorn casserole {it's a cornbread casserole that has been dubbed unicorn in my family, but that's a story for another time}... so this year I opted to step outside my comfort zone and do the sweet potato casserole and dessert.  I did a scouring of the internet and here are the potential candidates that intrigued me....

hmmm... can we just eat sweet potatoes for thanksgiving this year?... This'll be a touch choice, but it think I'll go with the last recipe as that photo speaks to me most... It's all about the presentation on what recipe I'll try! =)

I know i've been pretty quite on the blog front recently, but that's because I've been busy prepping for an event this weekend... Just wanted to let you all know that I {and my other business, Joie de Vie} will be selling my jewelry, accessories & paper goodies {think event banners & cupcake flags} this weekend and the holiday boutique being hosted by Eva of the Wedding Pantry... here are the details!  Hope to see you there! =)
