Apple-Sweet Potato Bake

I have been enjoying experimenting with side dishes recently and I hope to share them with you.  this is an apple-sweet potato dish and I think that apples added to almost any dish is a plus.  When I came across this recipe and saw the word, "apples", I was sold.  The orange juice added a nice flavor the remaining ingredients and we liked this dish.
