My Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe!

Over the years, there is one recipe I make that I am overwhelmingly asked to share every year around the holidays, and this is it! This sweet potato casserole is so easy to make, and though it is not healthy by any means, I find it to be the right mix of sweetness and savory. It was in demand to the point where my recipe card went missing for a while, but has since been returned and now I can blog it, haha! I hope you enjoy my favorite sweet potato casserole recipe!

Pan Seared Scallops With a Bacon Cream Sauce

I feel like all you need to do is read the title of this recipe to know that it is friggin delicious. A few months back, I would have never thought to eat scallops in a heavier cream sauce like this, but then an experience dining out where I had BAKED scallops in a lovely flavorful sauce just like this sold me for life! Scallops. Bacon. Cream. This recipe is a winner!
