Sweet Potato Pie II
This is a very good recipe. I've made it several times and have made a few discoveries: 1) bake your sweet potatoes - don't boil them. This makes for a more concentrated flavor. 2) puree them in the food processor - don't just mash them (my family doesn't like the fibrous texture when they're just mashed). 3) reduce the amount of sugar - I used 3/4 cup this last time. 4) Grate your own whole nutmegs, and use fresh ginger rather than the powdered stuff for a spicier kick.

Butter Cake
This is a wonderful homemade yellow cake recipe with a lovely flavor and beautiful texture. I doubled the recipe and baked it in 2 8" round layers, It came out of the pans very nicely after letting it rest (as the recipe advises). The only slight change that I made was that I had part of an envelope of vanilla sugar leftover from another recipe and added it in addition to the vanilla extract. As a side note, I read some of the reviews claiming that the cake was too dense and tasted of flour. Flours differ, and measuring it can be an art form, especially for cakes. My advice would be to spoon the flour LIGHTLY into the measuring cup, and then level it GENTLY.

Waffles I
This is a good recipe, giving nice waffles with a good texture. They're not as flavorful as waffles made with buttermilk / sour milk. I've made it several times. The recipe as written is a bit over-complicated, with the beating of the eggs, etc. As an experiment, I didn't beat the eggs using a mixer. I broke up the eggs using a fork, then added the milk and oil, then combined the liquid mixture to the dry mixture with a wire wisk. No difference in the texture that I could detect.
