Baked Sweet Potato Casserole With Marshmallows for Two


With the holidays upon us, I volunteered to bring a casserole to Christmas dinner. Why? "How could I possibly bring anything half as tasty as my seasoned aunts?" I pouted in my kitchen. However, after eating my entire test batch, I decided this is what I was taking to our annual family Christmas party. I was so excited to find the entire thing had been demolished by the end of the night.
