I LOVE yams (or is it sweet potatoes??) at the Thanksgiving table, and have made a decent version or two myself, but I want the recipe that you are crazy about. I have made a mashed recipe that was good, and then one with chunks of yam but there was too much butter in the recipe that ended up pooling. A friend made a marshmallow topping one, which was interesting and good.
And I *think* it's yams that I like - to me they have a sweeter, brighter, moister flesh than sweet potatoes... though I'm not entirely sure. If you're in the sweet potato camp, feel free to convince me...
Anyway, please pass on any recipes that family and friends beg you to make - I want the good stuff! (And calorie counting be damned, this is not the time to be stingy...)
