Cranberry Sweet Potato MuffinsI took advantage of great holiday sales on both cranberries and sweet potatoes to make these excellent muffins. I made some substitutions, and will write the recipe both as written and my version. This is a recipe that freezes well and is so good and easy to make. My thrift store mini-chopper made chopping the cranberries so easy and fast.
