The sweet potato pie was pretty fantastic! Yes there are some similarities to pumpkin pie, but I think that I may like this one a bit better! The texture was a bit less wet, it was spiced a bit different too. I'll definitely make this again!

As a kid, we used to go down to the bog, grab a handful of cranberries and then take a comb out of the hive, peel back the wax and fill our mouth with honey. Cranberries are very sour. Did you find that to be so with this recipe?

No, this recipe had just the right amount of sweet/sour Addie, and I'll make it again. That sounds like a lovely memory.

I wonder how this recipe would work with dried cranberries. They have a natural sweetness when they are dried and require much less sugar.

I guess it could work with dried cranberries Addie, but the fresh ones were sure pretty and juicy. I really like to use dried cranberries for lots of things but this wouldn't be one of them.

SO make a couple of pumpkin cake rolls. These are delicious and a much loved dessert in our family in the Fall.

I made two of them today, too, Andy! The small can of pumpkin is just the right size for two rolls.

debating about trying to make some bread, again. Three attempts so far but haven't been able to get any activity out of the yeast, no rising happening. Played with the water temp the last time and no luck. I am thinking I will try and get the yeast active and then continue, one bag of flour is just about gone in my attempts.
