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!!!

My very first experience making sweet potatoes! I have never liked sweet potatoes, and my husband has asked me over and over to make them for the holidays and has told me to "just open a can and add marshmallows". I decided I would make them proper and found this recipe. I made them for 15 people for Christmas dinner and this was the one thing everyone kept talking about (I liked them too)!
