Fall favorites; apples, and then pumpkins have recently taken center stage here. Not wanting to rush the year away, I’ve held writing about sweet potatoes and cranberries until now. With the start of November and Thanksgiving only a couple of weeks away, I figured now is the time to “talk” cranberries and sweet potatoes.
No matter how many Thanksgiving dinners you’ve prepared, for most, it always seems to be stressful. From the planning of the meal to the washing of the last plate, Thanksgiving creates more anxiety for home cooks than any other holiday. Why get nervous and fuss, since most tend to stick to their tried and true dishes: turkey, gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce; and for dessert, fall pies such as pumpkin, apple or mincemeat. These seem to be the Thanksgiving dinner must-haves.
