My husband, two kids and I go to my parents' house every Thanksgiving for a wonderful home cooked dinner by my mom. One of my favorite dishes my mom used to make is Sweet Potato Casserole. The reason I say `used to' is because each year I ask my mom what dish I can bring and she now has me bring this and another dish, a salad.
My mom is a teacher's assistant at an elementary school and the Sweet Potato Casserole was one of the dishes brought to a potluck by another staff member. My mom loved it so much she got the recipe and we've been having it every Thanksgiving since. It's more like a dessert than a side dish.
The Cranberry Fruit salad recipe I'm including was also found at a staff potluck at the school where my mom works. It's sweet-tart, delicious and very easy which is a big plus at Thanksgiving time! I hope you'll try them on your tables this year.
