  • “Sorry Mirj but I over baked the sweet potato so the boat wouldn’t float – The skin just fell off the potato so I did it as a casserole and it was delicious.I will make this again and make the boat float. It will look so attractive”

  • “a little too sweet. might try without cranberries.”

  • “This was a hit at Thanksgiving.Just sweet enough and low fat. thanks Mirj. “
