This year, my mother-in-law asked me to bring sweet potato casserole to our family Christmas Day dinner. I knew my Mom’s recipe would be ideal for the occasion! Little did I know at the time that my Mom would be in the hospital with pneumonia while we were eating her casserole. (Fortunately, she was released the next day and is doing very well.)
