Hey family, we've made it through most of the year, and now some of the best (in my opinion) holidays are fast approaching: Thanksgiving and Christmas! I love this time of the year because not only is the eating just wonderful, it's also a time that most people typically spend with their close family and friends.
I love incorporating great holiday scents in my home too. I recently picked up CHERISH THE PRESENT™ Jar Candles and PlugIns® Scented Oils from the new Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection for the house. You can find these new holiday fragrances at your local Kroger. I let the Mr. smell them, and he says it reminds him of spending time with his family at his parent’s house. I agree, the fragrance instantly reminds me of the holidays and spending time with family.......and it smells wonderful! It's such a comforting and relaxing scent.
Our family usually takes turns hosting dinner for the holidays. I think everyone can agree, there's nothing like walking into dinner and smelling all of those baked dishes and sweets. The CHERISH THE PRESENT™ scent from the new Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection instantly made me think of the holidays and my mom's sweet potato soufflé. Let me tell you, my family and friends go crazy over this stuff!
Today I want to share with you my mom's most requested dish: Sweet Potato Soufflé. We worked on making this together and she gave me all the basics and special tips on how to make it perfect!
2-3 Sweet Potatoes (3 cups cooked)
1/2 Cup Milk
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 1/2 Tablespoon Melted Butter
2 Tablespoon Flour
2 Tablespoon Melted Butter
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Package of Pecan Halves
Place potatoes in pot and boil for 30 mins. The water will boil off so check every 10 minutes or so to see if more water needs to be added to the pot. Add water as necessary. To check if they are complete stick a fork in the potato. If it goes through easily then it is done. Drain the hot water and leave potatoes in the pot. Add cold water. Cold water will help with peeling the potatoes. The skin will practically fall off. Peel potatoes and mash into bowl.
Once you have the potatoes mashed you will begin to add the ingredients for the soufflé. Add the ingredients one by one, blending with a hand mixer in between. Start with the milk and then add the remaining soufflé ingredients in any order that you choose. Blend until the mixture is nice and creamy, and then transfer to baking dish. For the topping, combine ingredients in a separate bowl. First add the butter then the brown sugar, the mixture will be like a paste. Next add the flour, the flour will make the paste turn into little crumbles. Spread the crumble on the soufflé mixture and then layer with the pecan halves.
Bake at 350 degree for 40 minutes. Test that the dish is complete by sticking a knife in it. If the knife comes out clean then you know you are done! Lastly, plop a spoonful of whipped cream on top of your finished dish and you are all complete!
So tell me, what scents and recipes remind you of the holidays? Will you be incorporating the Glade® Limited Edition WinterCollection into your home?
