    Have used this recipe for a long time - once the kids were out of the marshmallow topping! Have sliced the potatoes after whole potatoes were boiled. - 11/12/13

    Today is Thanksgiving and as I was flipping through recipes for yams, I came across this one. What a nice blend..even had to run to the store for OJ.....the yams are in the oven as I write this. The sauce is delicious...... I topped it with pecans. Thanks and happy turkey day! - 11/25/10

  • I made this for Thanksgiving, and loved the flavor, wasn't really crazy about the texture. I think the next time I make this, I will just bake the sweet potatoes so they are a little firmer. - 11/29/13

    Okay I have a question can you use Splenda in stead of the white sugar and the Splenda Brown sugar blend? - 8/31/10

    I think at some point the syrup in the sauce pan has to be added to the sweet potatoes. I use a recipe like this and it is always so good - 12/26/09
