"I've made this recipe so many times. It's the perfect recipe!! Even people who don't like sweet potatoes like this recipe. I usually just add jarred garlic to this recipe and I usually add a little more of it than it calls for. YUM!"

"the regular potatoes take less time then then the sweet potatoes to cook. To cut back on time I peel potatoes ahead of time and cubed. Cook regular potatoes in another pot because they will turn to mush."

"why would you have to cook the potatoes seperately? Why not put them into the same pot?"

"It doesn't say anywhere to "mash" the potatoes. I'm assuming you do this before you put everything in the baking dish?"
