Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potato casserole.  As a kid, I really disliked the stuff.  Every year I'd be encouraged to try some, just in case my tastes changed.  Well, it does happen.  My tastes began to change, and even though I can't say I was really crazy about sweet potatoes, they weren't bad either.

Well, I normally host Thanksgiving and decided that because I was in that position of *ahem* power, that meant I got to make the sweet potatoes.  I was determined to find a sweet potato casserole recipe that wasn't sickeningly sweet and/or covered in marshmallows.  *Yuck*.

This recipe was a keeper.  Not only did I enjoy it, but my family really enjoyed it, too.   As a matter of fact, Reilly has already asked if I'm making it again this year.  I put her little mind at ease and assured her that I would...
