Are you going to a Thanksgiving brunch anytime soon? I thought this recipe would be fun to share you  especially if you have have more than one place to go on Thanksgiving Day.

This year I am only going to my moms. We typically have the same stuff every Thanksgiving, but I think this year we are going to be switching it up a bit.

As long as my mom doesn’t get rid of her Sweet Potato Casserole, then switching it up is fine with me!!

These Pumpkin Spice Doughnut Holes are really good and super easy to make! They took me about 45 minutes from finish to end! Sophia helped me roll them into balls, so some of them are “squargigles,” but it makes them more fun. Sophia loves to help! Especially in the kitchen!

Nothing reminds me of Thanksgiving more than pie. One of may favorite parts of Thanksgiving is after dinner and everyone is in a Turkey comatose state, I love sneaking off downstairs to the game room with a piece of pie; and watch t.v. of course.

I was reading in a magazine earlier this week that stated “northern states prefer Pumpkin Pie over Sweet Potato Pie. Whereas Southern States prefer Sweet Potato Pie over Pumpkin Pie.” That got me thinking because every Thanksgiving we never have Sweet Potato Pie only Pumpkin Pie.

So I thought I would switch things up a bit this year and make Sweet Potato Pie..and boy was I glad I made it.

This recipe came from Food Network Magazine “Time for Turkey,” edition. And let me just say I am a sucker for those food magazines by the check out lines at the grocery store.
