I make a MEAN sweet potato casserole with brown sugar, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. It’s the only thing I ever bring on Thanksgiving and Christmas (yeah I fail at cooking normal things) and every year I have to increase the amount I make because it gets devoured. I brought it to a work holiday potluck a few years and now it’s a staple there as well. Can’t go wrong!

I usually make a cheesecake. Everyone seems to think they are hard to make for some reason, but I have a super easy and delicious recipe.

My grandmother had this cheesecake recipe that was INSANE.  And the diff was the amount of sour cream she used.  I switch it up and instead of graham crackers, I use taffy cookies as the crust.  It’s amazing.  The only other thing I do in a pie shell is a corn syrup-free walnut pie that uses a bunch of eggs and brown sugar instead.  It changes the flavor completely, almost like super rich flan.

Pavlova, tiramisu and cheesecake are always a hit and much easier to make than people think.

@out4answers:  This has my vote.  It’s too cute not to get it.  I mean.  Dude, they’re IN THE APPLES.
