"Next time I will try just making the sweet potatoes! Even those that don't like sweet potatoes in my house (kids), love them in this recipe. This is a keeper!! So simple and quick - keeping the flavors still natural. YUMMY!"

"I have made this often. Once the guests said that I had out done myself. Of course, now it is one of my best. Today I am going to try it with a loin roast."
