Amazing Sweet Potato Recipe

I got this recipe here, last Thanksgiving.  After some time searching and digging, I found it again.  We shared them at our Birthanksmas celebration and they completely reaffirmed the wonderful memories I had from last year.  This recipe is probably awful for you (I don't want to check), but it is absolutely amazing and ridiculously easy.  You will never want to eat Sweet Potatoes any other way, ever again.  By the way, what's the difference between Sweet Potatoes and Yams...I'm totally confused.

Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

1 c. sugar
1/4 c. melted butter
1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Put ingredients in a large bowl. Blend together with a mixer or beaters and put in a greased casserole dish (approx. 9" x 13").

Topping:
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. melted butter
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Mix and drop spoonfuls on top of sweet potatoes. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
