I have never cared for Sweet Potatoes and when my mother asked me to make Sweet potatoes for Easter I was scared. I don't even eat sweet potatoes. But this recipe is SUPER easy and very very good. I had a pleasure making them and will definitely be making this recipe again for Thanksgiving. Thanks!!!
