When I told Caitlin we were having sweet potato casserole, the first thing she asked was “With marshmallows???”. So of course the answer had to be yes. I’ve never made sweet potato casserole before, so I did a quick google search and discovered that, based on just “sweet potato casserole”, what you get is a bunch of people posting recipes without marshmallows and saying “this isn’t one of those gross, super-sweet marshmallowy casseroles”. Which of course was exactly what I didn’t want, so I revised my search to actively include marshmallows, and discovered, of course, that Martha Stewart was to the rescue.
This recipe was very, very easy, with only a few ingredients and not much attention required. Perfect for Thanksgiving when you’re trying to make 80 recipes at the same time… It had plenty of spice, excellent texture, and just enough marshmallows (okay, maybe the recipe didn’t, but we didn’t measure – we just used the whole bag).

Extravagant Thanksgiving 2011!
Last year, my sister and I cooked the Biggest Little Thanksgiving in her tiny kitchen in Baltimore. We had such a ball that we wanted to do it again this year – but this time, we decided we needed a bit more space. So we told everyone that we were posting up at my house this year, and anyone who wanted to could come by, but we were not going to leave until everything had been cooked and eaten.
