Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Rating: 5 stars 2590
Once you taste this, you won't ever go back to the marshmallow-topped variety! I have peeled and cooked in the microwave, and also boiled the sweet potatoes. They taste the same no matter how you cook them. So, use the technique that works best for you!

Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Rating: 5 stars 555
My husband likes spicy dishes, and this is one of his favorites. He usually takes what's left to work for lunch the next day. We have a 4-year-old son, and this is the only way we can get him to even touch beans!

I'm not sure how it started but we have to have this dish at EVERY holiday meal, or there's mutiny!

Kristen's Bacon Ranch Potato Salad
