      I love sweet potatoes, & when I can make a side like this, my other half is very willing to help me devour 'em! Will be making these again, for sure! [Made & reviewed in the special event All Aboard the L-O-V-E Train!]

      A great side dish to dinner tonight. I chose to use the pecans. The brie gave it excellent flavor.
