MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2013

"I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. I did add some marshmallows and toasted them in the oven for the last 5 minutes before serving. I could not find apricot nectar so used orange juice instead. They were wonderful!"

"This was delicious! Although, the flavour was slightly more acidic than I'd have liked. I'll make it again some other time, I think."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 25, 2008

"This recipe is delicious, and one that will be on my Christmas menu as well. I usually make a sweet potato casserole that my family loves, but decided to try something different. I'M SO GLAD I TRIED THIS! Not only is it absolutely yummy, it's super easy to make as well."
