"This is the best sweet potato recipe ever. Much better than cinnamon sweet potato's. My sister insisted she hates sweet potato's and finally tried these and ate half the dish. I am asked to make two of these next year for Thanksgiving."

"Everyone loved it, even my husband who says he doesn't like sweet potatoes. A friend was suppose to give me her recipe, but never did. Won't need hers anymore!!! I forgot to put in the vanilla and it was still good. Put some in the next day when I reheated it. Very easy to make. Will make again. Thanks Nanci for such a good recipe."
