Creaminess: 4 – On the verge of creaminess perfection.
Flavor: 3 – Stewart’s actually has a great classic root beer flavor, but there is nothing unique about it. Nothing that stands out.
Packaging: 2.5 – They used a glass bottle, which is always nice. However, the graphics are dated and not in a cool way.
Overall Experience: 3.5 – Stewart’s is a pretty good, classic tasting root beer. No complaints!
Creaminess: 2.5 – Not overly creamy. But a good blend of creaminess to accompany the flavor and carbonation.
Carbonation: 4 – It has a good amount of carbonation, and works well with the flavor
Flavor: 3.5 – Solid root beer flavor. Nothing amazing or weird or even very different. But still a good flavor.
Packaging: 3.5 – Brown glass bottle, twist off top, simple logo and classic root beer graphic
Overall Experience: 4 One of the better, plain ole root beers I’ve had. No surprises, but sometimes that’s nice.
Can you tell I started re-reading the Harry Potter series last week? The gold and lightening bolt shape were absolutely inspired by my fave wizards! About a year ago I did 4 nail looks inspired by the Hogwarts houses Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Check ‘em out!

I’m not sure who made the decision to consider sweet potato casserole a side rather than a dessert, but I would like to thank them. Seriously though, sweet potatoes are the best! This recipe came from my grandmother and was a huge hit at all my thanksgiving events! I’m a southern lady and in the south we top our sweet potato casseroles with butter, brown sugar and pecans… but, if you would like to add some marshmellows into the mix be my guest!
Here’s what you need:
3 c. mashed sweet potatoes or sweet potato puree
1/2 c sugar
1 T. vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese
dash of salt
I like to make my own mashed sweet potatoes. To do this I chopped 4 large sweet potatoes into 5 or 6 peices each and boiled them until they were fork-tender. You could also bake them in the oven. Next, mash away! Let mashed sweet potatoes cool and add in the rest of your ingredients. Put mixture into a casserole dish. Now for the good stuff…
1 c chopped pecans
1 c. crushed corn flakes
1/2 – 3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c (1 stick) melted butter
Mix the first 3 ingredients and put on top of sweet potatoes. Drizzle melted butter over top. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Make sure the center is done and
not jiggly! Enjoy!

4. This beautiful broach I got as a bridesmaid gift from my friend Patricia! I love it so much.
5. Half & Half. I got an iced coffee brewer for my birthday and I prefer to drink my iced coffee with either Half & Half or full on cream. I also love to add a bit to my hot chocolate for a little more decadence. I’m fancy, y’all.
6. Die cuts! We have a die cut machine at work and I was able to make several fun banners and decorations for our Friendsgiving get together!
