  1. I tried this recipe over the weekend and it was really good. I will have to double the recipe for the family next time because it went way too fast. Thank you so much for sharing wonderful recipes. The next one I will try is your brine, gravy, and turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner this year.

  2. I had a recipe similar to this 30 plus years ago that was my favorite yam recipe ever, but lost it 25 plus years ago and have been trying to duplicate it ever since. Looking forward to trying this version. (I think mine had orange juice in it) and will definitely use the coconut oil.

  3. Yams are a family favorite during the holidays at my house. Your 'revised' version of the recipe sounds wonderful.

    By the way, Candace from Squash House Quilts recommended your blog. I'm so happy she did, I'm loving all of the posts and your photos are amazing!

    Looking forward to learning more…

  4. Lovely recipe. Our sis-in-law lived in Memphis for years and brought a similar recipe home which we've enjoyed over the years. I'm going to try it with your additions of coconut things. Candace said I should stop by and see you. I saw her chicken pot pie and think I'm going to try that one too. Stop by Prairie Cottage Corner and see us when you have a minute. There's cocoa and scones on the warmer. Thanks so much.

    • Hi Prairie Stitcher. Loved your blog. You're quilting retreat looked amazing. Tell Candace thanks for sending you my way. I'm so glad you found my blog. I'm looking forward to that cocoa and scones. that sounds so comforting. Thanks for your comment.

  5. I really love when you post something that we never ever eat around here, I learn so much!

    It sounds so weird to add sugar to mashed sweet potatos… We usually add mustard to the mix, so the vinegar cuts the sweetness a bit.
    Of course we eat kidneys, tripe (we call them chinchulines), roasted bone marrow, brain and blood sausage (morcilla), so I guess that it works both ways?

    I wish you could send us some of the smell of your kitchen this season 😀
    Big kiss

    • Yams are a sweet potato. They are orange in color and I think they are sweet enough without adding any sugar. I have to admit I'd rather eat yams than kidneys or tripe. It's so fun to read about other cultures and foods. thanks for bringing a little south america to my blog.

  6. Hi Janet – I'm adding this to my Thanksgiving dinner! For Coconut Oil you have 4 and no size – would that be Tablespoons? Thanks so much! This is sure to be a big hit!
