Top Review by Mirj2338

We do not take our sweet potatoes lightly in this household, and it's got to be a really special dish to get rave reviews. Dancer, sister dear, consider this dish super special! I first zested a large orange and then squeezed the juice, and both the juice and the zest went into the dish. I only used one teaspoon of the almond extract since the kids are not as gung ho about it as I am. No leftovers for the next day, I guess I'm just going to have to make this often. Thanks, Sis, for another winner!
