"This is my new go-to recipe for sweet potatoes. It's so scrumptious! Love it! Love it! Love it! (And so do all my dinner guests!)"

"This is a very tasty dish. I think it is quite sweet. Next time I would cut back on the sugar. I used fresh sweet potatoes and cut them up and boiled them. Then followed the recipe. It was wonderful for Thanksgiving dinner. Will make it again."
