Sweet Taters ala Evonne

My Facebook friend Evonne sent me this recipe of Sweet Potatoes made with Jack Daniels whiskey. I must admit I love a shot of Jack Daniels at the holidays. On to the recipe & a huge "Thanks Girl" to Evonne.

I do not have a picture of this so I snagged  a cool Thanksgiving thingy from the interwebz.

 Hope you enjoy this recipe! Remember to have a few samples of the Jack Daniels just to make sure it is good enough for the sweet potatoes!  Of course you must first be "tall enough to ride this ride"  or no samples for you!

I am thankful that I am "tall enough to ride this ride".
