RECIPE BACKSTORY
"Hands down the best sweet potatoes ever ever (that is not a casserole, the sweet potato casserole recipe is even more crazy good, but different – we like to have both versions they are each so good on their own) I think it is the sauce and the fresh cranberries...I don't know, but this is so good you should go make some. Right now" ~ Judy Submitted by Chris
