Actually, my kids call this sweet potato cake… It tastes so amazing. So if you’re looking for a healthy casserole, THIS is not it. I could eat this every single night. And left overs are even better! And it compliments all meats. In fact, this is the sweet potato dish we eat on Thanksgiving… There is quite a few steps. And it takes an hour to be ready… But if you can ignore the amazing aroma, it is sooooo worth it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

A lot are painted gold or dipped partially in gold.
When I set out to make my daughter’s baby food I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. She’s completely off purees now and I still miss it!

What can I say, I’m a tattooed, foul-mouthed domesticated housewife. And it’s awesome.

If you have a large family that consists of six or more people you know all too well the labor of love that goes into each day. Your day starts with getting children ready for school and ends with loading up the dishwasher before heading to bed. Having a big family comes with its challenges. Regular size items such as pots and pans, dishwashers, washing machines and even vehicles just don’t offer the amount of room you need to make life easier. Luckily, there are alternatives that can provide you with the size and space you need to complete tasks and enjoy time out together as a family.
