MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2009

"This is absolutely delicious! My family made a face when I first told them it was sweet potato and not pumpkin, but EVERYONE loved it, especially my 4 year old! I used a brandy sauce that I make for my bread pudding and thickened it up with a bit of sour cream. Perfection!"
