Food & Family

I just really like this little magazine sent out by Kraft. Everyday, simple foods that don't take a day and a half to make. Sure to please a family, or even just yourself and friends. Some of the recipes are very inventive.

I'm sure that some on Top Chef would turn up their noses at it, but for using some basic everyday Kraft ingredients that most people have stored away in their food cabinets. And, yes, processed food isn't the best choice for everyday, but for some households it's the only way to go. (and, granted, i'm a Blue Box Mac'n Cheese fan, myself.)

Mom's Best Sweet Potato Casserole
3 lb. sweet potatoes (about 5 large)
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1-1/2 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows

PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Place sweet potatoes on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 8 min. Turn potatoes over; continue microwaving 9 to 10 min. or until very tender. Let stand 5 min. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop pulp into large bowl; discard skins.
ADD cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to potato pulp. Mash with potato masher to desired consistency. Spoon into 9-inch square glass baking dish.
MIX cereal and butter in medium bowl until well blended. Stir in marshmallows. Sprinkle evenly over potato mixture.
BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until topping is golden brown and mixture is heated through.
