Pineapple Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Pineapple and pecans make a pretty topping for this no-fuss fall side dish. "It's light, tasty and not too sweet," notes Bette Fulcher of Lexington, Texas. "Making it in the slow cooker leaves extra space in the oven when preparing a holiday turkey and other dishes," she adds.
