  • What part of this is a "low calorie" recipe???
    Just curious cause my regular yam recipe wasn't this high in calories and that was before I lost over 100 pounds LOL!

    I never meant to represent this dish as "low calorie". I've lost over 60 lbs and I find that I can still fit foods like this into my regimen.

  • Mmmm, this is such a yummy side dish, but we even like it as a dessert. And if one covers it with marshmallows, it´s even more heavenly!!! Smashing! :) - 1/6/09
