They say smell is the strongest memory sense. I don’t think the scientists who said that ever tasted my great-grandmothers sauce. One taste will transport you back to sitting in her dining room sopping up sauce with Italian bread. Sometimes an amazing, special recipe creates a place in your heart that only taste can access.

That’s why writing down recipes is so important. When I lived in Florida, my roommate had this recipe for sweet potato pie… it totally changed Thanksgiving forever. I had never had sweet potato pie before and haven’t had one as delicious since. Of course, I didn’t write down the recipe. Big mistake. Every Thanksgiving I think about it. Several years in a row I tried to track her down to get the recipe (this was pre-social media time. Yes, I just dated myself). I should have written down that damn recipe…

So I gave up on the sweet potato pie because it’s kind of like trying to recreate your grandmother’s sauce- it just never tastes the same. No matter how closely you follow the recipe, something about it just tastes different. Once I got over the pain of having to live the rest of my life without this amazing pie, I developed my own little sweet potato recipe. It taste like pumpkin pie! It’s easy, yummy, and I know the recipe so I won’t have to endure the pain of losing it.
