"Wanted to try a new sweet potato dish. My family really liked this besides the pineapple. We aren't pineapple fans so that could be part of it. Next time I will leave them out. These is super pretty with the cranberries."

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

"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."
