It's just been pointed out to me that I have no business eating candied yams. I'll use y'all's recipes/suggestions to put something together for my waitress friend. But, although I thought I'd be using your ideas for myself, I can't. I've been reminded that I have diabetes and have not been taking care of myself. So I'll be trying to reduce drastically my carb intake this holiday season. I definitely have no business eating candied yams.
