Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes are very do-ahead. If you find yourself in a pre-feast frenzy, skip spooning them back into the sweet potato cups and just warm the puree and serve it as is.

These spiced fall cupcakes are a riff on the classic Thanksgiving casserole. These days, I tend to like savory sweet potato dishes with the meal, but marshmallowy cupcakes make a terrific fall dessert! Store any leftover cupcakes in the refrigerator.

Mother's great yams were always a hit at Thanksgiving. In America, yams are actually a type of sweet potato. Gingersnap cookies and marshmallows make this dish a real treat.

These individual sweet potatoes are great for Thanksgiving, or any time of year. I browned the butter to add a nutty flavor, plus added some cayenne pepper for a kick.

I came up with this one Thanksgiving because I was short on oven space. Everyone loved it and I have made it for every Thanksgiving and holiday meal ever since. Be careful not to overcook marshmallows, they can become liquified.

This recipe is very similar to sweet potato casserole, but with shredded sweet potatoes. My mom used to make it at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. She passed away when I was 8, so I when I eat this it reminds me of family holidays of long ago. I hope your family enjoys this!

Sweet Potato-Cashew Bake

Rating: Unrated

This dish has always been on our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter menus. You can't go wrong with sweet potatoes that are cooked, sliced, and layered with brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cashews. The whole mixture is then baked and topped with mini marshmallows that brown at the end. Canned yams can be used instead of the sweet potatoes.
