Have you started planning your holiday menus? I have always been a lover of food but there is something I really love about planning and making an entire feast.

I love gathering with family, enjoying good conversation and delicious food. I love breakfast quiche, Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans, the perfect turkey, mashed potatoes, pie and more.

It is a family tradition to always make layered finger Jello and Sour Cream Coffee Cake. The holidays are all about food and tradition and I always look forward to them.

This Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans is a great addition to your holiday feast.A plastic container of food
