How about a sweet potato pie recipe. I mean a good ole down home recipe lol. My husband likes it alot, but I tried to make one one time. And it was a disaster. My friend told me I should use the canned potatoes instead of the real potatoes because its easier. Thats fine too. I just need a good recipe. thanks.
