Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I'm making.. Oops, I mean troubleshooting.. this recipe right now (on thanksgiving) because no where in this -what should have been really simple- recipe did it say that you should drain the sweet potatoes. So instead of having whats in the picture going to my table, I have what amounts to sugary sweet potato soup heading there. A person shouldn't have to read comments to a recipe, for things that should have been said in the recipe itself. Theres no telling -at all- that it wasn't intended to have all of the liquid, let alone how much liquid from the can should have been drained out in the first place. Also, aside from all that, the marshmallows didn't get brown what-so-ever being covered, so it needed to be put back in the oven any way to brown those. Should have scrapped this idea from the menu all together and given the marshmallows to the kids. This "should be simple" recipe is a complete failure to launch.
