Spiced Sweet Potatoes

Usually I make my Ginger Sweet Potatoes during the winter months but I wanted to try something that’s slightly sweeter with warm spices like cinnamon. I’m not a fan of sweet, sweet potatoes but my family loves them. It’s reminiscent of a sweet potato casserole but without any marshmallows.
