This Sweet Potato Casserole is creamy and topped with a brown sugar pecan crust, just like at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
One of our family favorites, sweet potato casserole, is often served at Thanksgiving dinner— and is as important as the ham and cornbread dressing. The secret is baking the sweet potatoes; that way, they retain more flavor.
The sweet potatoes are mashed with butter, brown and white sugar, milk, eggs, and spices. Then the mixture is topped with a crunchy pecan crust and marshmallows for the perfect blend of flavors and textures.
If you have to pick sides, I’d suggest this Sweet Potato Casserole! It’s a great compliment to the traditional Thanksgiving turkey or ham and can be served at room temperature. The brown sugar pecan topping gives this dish an added touch of elegance. I’m bringing it to my family gathering this year and can just see the smiles on everyone’s faces when the smell hits the air.

Keep in mind that the most important thing is to spend time with your parents and your in-laws over the holidays. You don’t have to splash a lot of cash on them, just be there and cherish the time you have together. At the same time, don’t feel like you have to avoid buying them a gift for fear of overspending or being inappropriate in some way. If you go the extra mile and get them something nice but not overly extravagant, chances are they’ll say “thank you” and mean it. And isn’t that what Christmas is all about?

What better way to celebrate the holiday season with friends and family than with a delicious slice of pie? This Cardamom Apple Pie is sure to be a hit.
It’s so simple, fresh, and flavorful. Whenever I’m hosting, I like to prepare pies early in the day so they have ample time to cool before we’re ready to eat. It’s also a great way to make your home smell wonderful. To me, life doesn’t get much better than a relaxing conversation over a slice of pie.
The best part of this recipe is using the apple peeler. I was able to get my apples peeled, cored, and sliced in less than 10 minutes. So as I told you, this recipe is sooooo easy and delicious.
The combination of apples, nutmeg, and cardamom in this pie is amazing. The apples in this recipe are thinly sliced, and you can use any type of apple you’d like, but I prefer something on the sweeter side with a crisp texture. My favorite types of apples for baking are Honey Crisp or Granny Smith apples. The cardamom adds an aromatic, warm flavor to this pie. If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute ground cinnamon instead.
I used homemade pie crust, but you could easily use store-bought. This recipe is so easy and delicious that I think you’ll want to make it again and again!
It’s important to balance out the unhealthy indulgences of the holiday season and take a moment to appreciate the simple things in life. By treating ourselves to healthy and delicious baked goods made by hand, not only are we relaxing and enjoying our free time, we’re also learning how to make traditionally great dishes that our loved ones might otherwise never get to experience. This is a recipe I think is well worth trying out.
For all the apple pie lovers out there this holiday season, we hope that you have a wonderful time together with family and friends. Let us know if you enjoyed it in the comments below!Print
What could be better than Honey Baked Ham? Well, some say there is no substitute for HoneyBaked ham, but this pineapple brown sugar ham recipe will leave you more than satisfied.
If you want to prepare an amazing and unforgettable holiday dish that is fast, easy, and sooooo delicious, this pineapple brown sugar ham is definitely a recipe you need. I am sure you will love it!
This pineapple brown sugar ham will be gone before you know it!
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and I usually cook it at least once a year, for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.
WHAT’S THE TRICK TO THIS HONEY-BAKED HAM DUPE???
What’s the trick, or what makes this recipe different? A brown paper bag! It’s true! The bag not only helps with flavoring it also pulls the extra sodium out of the ham, so you don’t have a “salty pig.”
Where do you get a brown bag? Most of your grocery stores always ask “paper or plastic” right? just ask the cashier for an extra unused bag!
The brown sugar and pineapple juices caramelize on the outside of the ham, creating a delicious crispy crust. This is one of those super easy recipes that are so good you’ll want to make it again and again. The ham will be tender and juicy, and it has a delicious brown sugar crust on the outside. You can serve this with pineapple rings or slices, but I like to serve it with some pineapple sauce for extra flavor.
This is a great recipe to make if you’re hosting a large crowd at your home, especially for the holidays. It’s easy to make and has very few ingredients. I would recommend using a spiral-cut ham, but you can use any kind of ham that you like.
Ahh, the classic holiday ham. A delicious addition to your family’s Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
