Bacon and Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese
Inspired by a stuffed baked potato, this stovetop mac and cheese is loaded with bacon, Cheddar, and sour cream. Indulgence, baby.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Gingersnaps
A Thanksgiving classic revisited with an added emphasis on sugar and spice and, yes, everything nice. A sweet potato mash topped with marshmallow and—believe it or not—crushed gingersnaps. Heresy? Or high-five-worthy? You tell us.
