This request and dedication goes out to......

Nettie!  When your mother-in-law, who always makes the most indulgent and  sometimes complicated dishes seem like a walk in the park, asks for one of your recipes you give it to her!

Delicious sweet potato casserole any sweet potato would be proud to be a part of:

3 cups sweet potatoes (4 medium size, approximately)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
1tsp vanilla
1/3 cup milk

Peel, boil and mash potatoes. Blend in sugar, butter, eggs vanilla and milk. Pour into casserole dish.


1/3 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 cup pecans, chopped

Melt butter, add sugar, flour and pecans. Sprinkle on top of potato mixture and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Serves 8-10.  The recipe is Mrs. Phillip Creel's from Franklinton, La.

Of note, these chocolate chip cookies are the best ever.
Mrs. Field's should be Mrs. Jacquin's, not kidding.
