So I made the sweet potato recipe - fantastic. I will re-post it since it got deleted. I got it from my Aunt Debbie. She had written it down out of a magazine but had changed a thing or two. I tried to find the recipe with no luck - I decided it would be her recipe and called it...
 Aunt Debbie's Fantastic Scalloped Sweet Potatoes
7 c 1/4 sliced and peeled sweet potatoes
2 qt chicken stock
2 T oil or butter
3 T flour
1.5 c 2% milk
2 garlic cloves
3 oz Gruyere
1 oz Parmesan grated
in a 4 qt pan cook potatoes in stock for 4 minutes. Reserving the stock and draining so that the potatoes stay intact. Spray a 2 qt casserole dish and place half potatoes in the bottom. In sauce pan heat oil or butter, sprinkle flour and stir constantly for a minute, add garlic and cook two minutes, combine milk with 1 c reserved broth and gradually add to flour mixture stirring constantly. Add rosemary and bring to boil cook 4 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat - you can strain it but I didn't. add salt, pepper and Gruyere Pour half on potatoes , put the rest of the potatoes and the rest of the sauce, sprinkle Parmesan on top and bake 350 for an hour, broil to brown and sprinkle with chives
