Friday Favorites + Grandma’s Sweet Potato Dish

Thank the Lord for Fridays! As always I’m sharing some of my favorites from the week!

 One.I love Sally Hansen’s Pat on the Black nail polish! It’s goes on dark, which is so fun for this time of year.


I have kind of been obsessed with Green Mountain’s Hazelnut coffee. Ever since I stopped using creamer in my coffee regularly, I love a good flavored coffee. I bought a variety pack at Costco and keep going back to this one.

My sister-in-law and I spent last weekend watching Gilmore Girls. Coffee in hand, we were loving every second except I did not see the ending coming…at all! 😉

Four.The last few years I have made my Grandma’s Sweet Potato Dish for Thanksgiving. This year was no exception! I cherish this recipe and wrote it in my Keepsake Kitchen Diary to always have on hand. This is not just a recipe for Turkey Day, it’s a recipe you will want to make throughout the year!


  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed )
  • 1 to 1.5 cups milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar

What to do:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Fill a large pot with water and cook sweet potatoes until soft. Mash. Place in a mixer and add other ingredients. Pile lightly into greased 1.5 qt. casserole dish. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Bake 20-30 minutes or until bubbling.

*I triple the recipe for Thanksgiving and use this casserole dish.*

Five.Speaking of mixer’s…I have been using my KitchenAid mixer a ton lately and still love it as much as the day I bought it.
