Favorite Holiday Recipes

       I was flattered this week by our children’s compliments of my cooking.  As we anticipated the Thanksgiving menu, I teased our children telling them so many others were cooking I didn’t need to. They went up in arms demanding their favorite recipes.   I thought it would be a fun to share the recipes our children put on their “thankful” lists.

Sweet Potato Casserole
(The Ballet Dancer’s favorite)

6 – 8 Medium sweet potatoes boiled and peeled
1-Cup Sugar
1 Stick of butter
1 Egg

1 Cup Brown sugar
¾ stick of butter
1/3 cup self-rising flour
1½ Cups chopped nuts

Mix casserole ingredients together and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Mix topping ingredients together and spoon on sweet potato mixture.
Bake 30 – 45 minutes on 325 degrees

Squash Casserole
(The eldest’s favorite)
6 – 8 sliced and cooked squash
1 Medium cooked onion
1 package dry salad dressing mix (I use Ranch)
1 tube of crushed crackers
1 cup of shredded cheese
1 Cup of mayonnaise

Mix all ingredients.  Place in a casserole dish and cook for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

Spinach/Artichoke Dip
(My man-child’s favorite)   

2 packages of frozen spinach
(Thawed and drained)
1 can of drained artichokes
