With American Thanksgiving just around the corner, I decided to try out some American classic desserts like the Sweet Potato Casserole. It’s a fairly easy recipe and takes very little preparation. I have never had it before and it was a bit odd at first but then you end up just keep eating it, it feels like eating an apple crumble without the sour flavor. Overall it’s an interesting dish and something worth trying if you are interested. Happy American Thanksgiving!
