You know you're at your moms when you can show up without a recipe, half the ingredients, or the pan for your assigned dish on Thanksgiving Day.
Thankfully, she happened to have pecans, flour, sugars (brown and white), eggs, milk, vanilla and shortening to grease the -- her -- pan. (I knew she would.)
But I did bring the sweet potatoes. And it's a good thing.
Without that, this casserole would have been... well, apparently, a cake.
