"Easy do-ahead recipe that will dress up any table - company or everynight dinner. Perfect for your holiday table. The recipe is originally from Taste of home by Mary Wilhelm with modifications by me. You may make the cranberry sauce the day ahead (leave out the walnuts until you are ready to serve) and just heat it before pouring on the sweet potatoes.If you wish sub pecans for the walnuts."
