Candied Sweet Potatoes
The spices made this dish awesome! One thing I do, as I hate the mess of peeling cooked yams (& nothing but fresh yams will do), is I peel & cut them before cooking and I actually steam them, takes 20-30 mins, which also works perfect for pies too. Everything else is a piece of cake (pun intended) once u've mastered the yam-cooking step... happy baking all !!!

Sweet Potato Pie II
This is only the second sweet potato pie recipe I've tried, but it was 10x better than the first! The spices were fabulous, to which I added allspice and vanilla, used salt substitute, and decreased the brown sugar by 1/4 cup. I doubled the recipe, but used three jumbo yams, so I ended up w/ THREE pies! Yes, I said THREE! Still not sure exactly how many pies the original recipe actually yields. I baked the yams & pie longer at a lower temp, just watching to make sure the crust didn't burn, which worked fine. Took one to work for 'hump' day & that became the happiest hump day ever! One co-worker said she doesn't like sweets too sweet and this pie was perfect! Another likes his sweets sweet, but still loved it, so I think I might stick to less brown sugar, since sweet sweets lovers can adjust much more easily to less sweet than the opposite. Can't wait to use this one for next family gathering! Thanks for a winner!!!

Coconut Ambrosia Salad
I made (doubled) this for Christmas Eve, and based on others' reviews, added pistacio instant pudding mix and lowfat sour cream in place of milk. I omited the cherries and added strawberries and even left out the marshmallows. I added apples, red grapes, and pecans (toasted them, didn't work, they got soggy, but the coconut was nice toasted). Everyone liked it alot, but didn't taste the pudding flavor because I made the mistake of using a small package of sugar-free (& 1 regular), which was almost flavorless! I made it again already & this time used 2 small regular packs of the pudding mix and it became a beautiful light green and very flavorful! The best part is that the regular pudding has tiny pistacio bits in it (you don't really have to add nuts at all) which makes it divine!! You really can add any fruit, fresh or canned (2nd time I replaced crushed pineapple with a can of WELL-DRAINED Dole Tropical Mixed Fruit which has pineapple chunks. It was amazing!) I'm a coconut freak, but depending on how much other fruit I choose to add, I decide the amount of coconut I want to add at the end (at least a good cup so far). I also used all lite whipped topping & it was fabulous. threw in a banana. with or without marshmallows, woo-hoo! happy mixing!
