Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
OH MY GOSH this was just DELICIOUS. I absolutely LOVE sweet potatoes, I can eat them plain baked with no toppings. However, I have some sweet potato haters in the family as well. I made these for THanksgiving yesterday, the first time straying from the marshmallow topping tradition, and everyone JUST FREAKED. It was most people's favorite dish, the first thing we ran out of, and everyone asked me how I did it. The texture is so fluffy, the sweetness is perfect, the crunchiness of the brown sugar and pecans just made the dish. The key is using the fresh potatoes and not buying the garbage from a can. It is literally heaven in a casserole dish!

Holiday Cranberry Sauce
Okay, no one in my family even likes that canned cranberry sauce stuff, including myself. I just knew there was more potential for deliciousness rom fresh cranberries. This was one of the biggest hits of the Thanksgiving table this year - everyone LOVED it, cranberry haters included! When I took it off the heat it was pretty soupy and sloshed around everywhere, but it definitely sets into a jelly-like consistency in the fridge overnight. Perfect amount of spices and sweetness. It's great!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie
Ah, so delish! To my family, pumpkin pie has always been mediocre at best: the dessert that is only present at Thanksgiving because of its indelible status as a fall staple. A devout lover of all things pumpkin, I set out to change their minds about the power of this delightful orange fruit... and succeeded with the help of this recipe! It was my first attempt to make a pie from fresh pumpkin, and this recipe turned out beautifully... it has such a different texture than canned pumpkin pie. It is lighter and fluffier, less dense, more natural tasting and a different kind of sweet - the kind not achieved by syrups from a can. I used Nilla Wafer pre-made pie crust, but this was only a practice run for Thanksgiving and I plan on making my own pie crust next time. This was a smashing success - recommend to anyone! Baking the pumpkin seems like a lot of work, but it actually doesn't consume that much time and it's kindof fun. Only thing I would change - I think it needs more spice. If you like a milder pie, stick with the amount in the recipe, for a more traditional, cinnamony, gingery pie I would increase it a bit.
