This Sweet Potato and Cranberry Crisp is a fun twist on the classic Thanksgiving side dish, made even sweet ‘n’ saltier with a potato chip and pecan topping. Post sponsored by Kettle Brand Chips.

Sweet Potato-Cranberry Crisp

Confession: I have never put a scoop of sweet potato casserole (or candied yams, or whatever you call them) on my Thanksgiving dinner plate, ever. It’s just never seemed to belong next to my turkey and mashed potatoes. Too mushy, lackluster, or overwhelmed by marshmallows. For whatever reason, I just feel compelled to skip it.

But not this year. I’ve taken the traditional dish and turned into a Thanksgiving side I want seconds of.

The ultimate summer fruit cobbler filled with peaches, plums, cherries, blueberries and raspberries.

Ultimate Summer Fruit Cobbler

All of the credit for this fabulous summer dessert goes to a reader, Diana, who commented on a facebook question I posted asking for summer recipe requests. She replied:

“The ultimate summer fruit cobbler. Maybe peaches…blackberries. And not the shortcut one where they tell you to use bisquick- yuck! One with a real topping made from scratch. Would love to see that!”

Well here you are, Diana. This is the ultimate summer fruit cobbler, filled with all the fresh fruit and berries of the season and topped with a from-scratch (but still easy!) buttermilk cake-like crust.

Blackberry Mango Crisp

I’ve been on a mango kick lately. They’re beautiful and cheap at my grocery store right now and I can’t seem to get enough. I enjoy mangoes mostly on their own or in a smoothie, but a mango crisp recipe has been brewing in the back of my mind for months. When a box of mangoes landed on my doorstep, pushing my household mango supply over the edge, I knew it was time to give one a try.
