Reviews for Brown Sugar-Glazed Sweet Potatoes
"We really enjoyed these! My whole family has a sweet tooth and we're all big fans of the marshmallow coated sweet potato casserole. This was as good, with way more natural ingredients. Love the touch of brandy."
"These were done just right. A little too sweet for my liking, but my fianc? gobbled them up!"
