My 13 year old daughter selected and made this recipe for our Thanksgiving dinner. Sweet potatoes are not a part of our tradition, so this was a new experience for us. Emily and I thought they were great, my 16 year old son rated them very good, and my husband (not a sweet potato fan at all) at least gave them a try. I loved the addition of the vanilla and nutmeg in this recipe, and the potatoes smelled heavenly while baking. Emily topped them with a few mini marshmallows since that is what she had heard sweet potatoes should alway have. The marshmallows pretty much melted and disappeared into the potatoes. I especially loved the potatoes when they mixed together with cranberry sauce on my dinner plate. Yumm, nice combination of sweet and tart!
