MY REVIEW

"This was a hit at my Thanksgiving! Very easy to make. I prepped it in the morning, and threw it in the oven as soon as the turkey came out."

"This was the second year I have made this for Thanksgiving and again it was a HUGE success. The only thing I do differently is add marshmallows 15 minutes before end of baking time. Everyone loves this dish!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2014

"Yum!!! I omitted the nuts because of allergies, and it was still delicious. I baked it for about 10 minutes longer than what the recipe calls for, which made the topping crispier n the inside a little firmer. I made 1 dish, n it got gobbled up! I think I'll make 2 next time!"

"This was voted the new family tradition sweet potato recipe in the middle of Thanksgiving Day dinner. I don't intend to change a thing, it's perfect as is."
