Whitney's Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving is here & we want to help make sure the dish you're preparing is as good as the Ivy dress you're wearing! One of our Ivy founders, Whitney Smith, shares her very favorite Thanksgiving recipe with our Ivy league for you to enjoy this year! It's easy & extremely delicious! 
  

"I got this recipe from my husband's cousin who made it for Thanksgiving. This was back when we used to combine their family Thanksgiving years ago before everyone had kids and it started getting too big and chaotic! I started bringing it to ALL my family Thanksgivings & Friendsgivings. It’s the #1 requested comeback item each year! I’m usually pretty health conscience but a little brown sugar & butter never hurts on a holiday right? ;)"
