MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2014

"THIS WAS WONDERFUL BUT I DID ADD A FEW MORE CRANBERRYS, THE BURST OF FLAVOR WHEN YOU TOOK A BITE WAS GREAT."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe is really delicious! I omitted the pineapple juice and just used the crushed pineapple, and I thought it was the perfect balance. You could taste the flavor of the potatoes, orange juice, and pineapple, without any of them being too overpowering. I will definitely use this recipe again."
