Sweet Potato Casserole

Every year, even though Thanksgiving isn't a big deal in sunny Singapore, I like to bring a slice of that tradition to my table. It's my way of taking a breather from the hustle and bustle, to just be thankful for the good stuff—my family, friends, and all the little wins we often overlook.

Plus, it's the perfect excuse to whip up some hearty, comforting dishes that scream 'holiday' in every bite.

Enter my sweet potato casserole: it's not just a dish; it's a whole vibe. The sweet potatoes are whipped up to creamy perfection, and with my special blend of cookie spices mixed in, every spoonful is like a prelude to Xmas.

The marshmallows on top? Well, they're non-negotiable because my daughter insists, and hey, who am I to argue with the boss? Watching those fluffy white puffs turn toasty is part of our quirky holiday tradition.

So, whether you're from a place where Thanksgiving is the holiday of the season or just looking to share in the joy of a festive feast, this sweet potato casserole is a winner. I'm telling you, the smell alone is enough to make you want to break out the tinsel. Ready to get a taste of the holidays? Let’s jump right into the recipe and make some memories.
