Do you have a secret passion for Thanksgiving sides? We do, too! While we love turkey, we can’t seem to get enough of mom’s green bean casserole, silky mashed potatoes and, of course, her famous sweet potato casserole. In fact, this week’s Secret Ingredient encore episode features a recipe for a spiced up version of mom’s classic topped with all-natural marshmallows. Handcrafted without chemical emulsifiers, thickeners, artificial colors or flavors, all-natural marshmallows are the secret to a deliciously sweet Thanksgiving.

Joanna - your muffin idea is terrific and gives me a great hint of how to re-express sweet potatoes within my 2008 Thanksgiving menu which is themed "Change." For instance instead of Mom's green bean casserole the flavors will instead becoming a green bean bisque with wild mushrooms garnished with crisped onions. And thank you to Whole Foods for being there with virtually all the items I need, and those I don't need but discover and enjoy.

Hi Ron, I was just doing some last minute checking before my final T-day shop and your green bean bisque sounds amazing. My sister is slated to make the traditional "green bean casserole" for T-day but I am going to give her this idea instead. Any hints on the recipe?
