The holiday season kicks off tomorrow with one of my favorite holidays – one filled with good food, good people, and turkey naps. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a day that we get to spend quality time with family. Sometimes the holidays become hectic with all the gifts, parties, and food that they seem to come and go before we even realize. Thanksgiving dinner is a set time where we all can forget about work, our to-do lists, and any other distractions and truly enjoy each other’s company.
Today, I am sharing one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. This recipe is from Grandma Kolesar. Only a handful of people in our family like sweet potatoes but this recipe is one of our favorites. For that reason, it is very special to me! I hope you all give it a try and like it as much as we do!
